COMMENTS

(1) Does every row occur infinitely many times as a segment of A000002?

(2) In Kolakoski's note, the initial 1 appears at the bottom, centered, with 2 just above and successive rows arise as branches so that the array resembles a handheld fan.

Arises from the Kolakoski sequence, K(n)=A000002(n), as follows:

row 1: 1

row 2: 2

row 3: 2 2

row 4: 1 1 2 2

row 5: 1 2 1 1 2 2,

and so on, where the first term in row n is K(n) and row n-1 tells how many of each kind (1 or 2) to write in row n.
