Tool for calculating the values of the harmonic numbers, ie the values of the nth partial sums of the harmonic series as well as their inverse. The harmonic series is the series of inverses of natural non-zero integers. 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + ... + 1/n

Harmonic numbers are described by the formula:

$$ H_n = \sum_{k=1}^n \frac{1}{k} = 1+\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{3}+\cdots+\frac{1}{n} $$

Example: \( H_3 = 1+\frac{1}{2} = \frac{3}{2} = 1.5 \)

The following recurrence formula can also be applied:

$$ H_n = H_{n-1} + \frac{1}{n} $$

When \( n \) is very big, the following approximation using logarithm can be applied

$$ \lim_{n \to \infty} H_n = \ln n + \gamma $$

with \( \gamma \aprox 0.577215665 \) the Euler–Mascheroni constant.
