FORMULA

Write 1. Then place 2 before 1 and then 2 after 1, yielding 21 and 12, as well as the first 5 terms of the sequence. Next, generate the 6 permutations of 1, 2, 3 by inserting 3 into 21 and then 12, from fronttoback, like this: 321, 231, 213 then 213, 132, 123. Next, generate the 24 permutations of 1, 2, 3, 4 by inserting 4 into the permutations of 1, 2, 3. Continue forever.


EXAMPLE

The permutations can be written as
1,
21, 12,
321, 231, 213, 312, 132, 123, etc.
Write them in order and insert commas.
