COMMENTS

A007097(n) = Min {k : A109301(k) = n} = the first k whose rote height is n, the level set leader or minimum inverse function corresponding to A109301. - Jon Awbrey, Jun 26 2005

Lubomir Alexandrov informs me that he studied this sequence in his 1965 notebook. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 23 2008.

a(n) is the Matula-Goebel number of the rooted path tree on n+1 vertices. The Matula-Goebel number of a rooted tree can be defined in the following recursive manner: to the one-vertex tree there corresponds the number 1; to a tree T with root degree 1 there corresponds the t-th prime number, where t is the Matula-Goebel number of the tree obtained from T by deleting the edge emanating from the root; to a tree T with root degree m>=2 there corresponds the product of the Matula-Goebel numbers of the m branches of T. - Emeric Deutsch, Feb 18 2012

a049084(a(n+1)) = a(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 14 2013
