COMMENTS

From Richard Guy's 1971 letter: "[Studied by] Helen Alderson, J. H. Conway, etc. at Cambridge. These are rooted trees with two branches at each stage and if A,B,C,D (see drawing [in letter]) are further growths, then one treats (AB)(CD) as equivalent to (AC)(BD)  otherwise one distinguishes left and right. [The sequence gives] the number of equivalence classes of such trees."
