COMMENTS

Comments from Ferenc Adorjan (fadorjan(AT)freemail.hu): "Decimal expansion of the representation of the sequence of primes by a single real in (0,1).
"Any monotonic integer sequence can be represented by a real number in (0, 1) such a way that in the binary representation of the real, the nth fractional digit is 1 if and only if n is in the sequence.
"Examples of the inverse mapping are A092855 and A092857." (End)
