COMMENTS

Blocks of 1s and 2s are variables: A = 1, B = 2, C = 11, D = 12, E = 21, ... Not = 3; And = 4; Xor = 5; Or = 6; Implies = 7; Equiv = 8; Left Parenthesis = 9; Right Parenthesis = 0.
Operator binding strength is in numerical order, Not > And > ... > Equiv.
The nonassociative "Implies" is evaluated from Left to Right; A>B>C = is interpreted (A>B)>C. Redundant parentheses are permitted.
This is a decimal Goedelization of theorems from a particular axiomatization of propositional calculus. This should be linked to the subsequences of theorems and antitheorems.  Jonathan Vos Post, Dec 19 2004

FORMULA

It appears that the nth term is very roughly n^c, for some c>1.


EXAMPLE

Example: 17162 is the theorem A>AvB.
