COMMENTS

A161373 U A161374 = A000027.
In contrast to sequences A048991, A048992 (Hannah Rollman's numbers), and binary analogs A190784 and related, the numbers listed here are repeated in their natural position when forming the concatenation of binary digits, even though they occur already earlier in the string.

EXAMPLE

Decimal 0 1 2 3 4 5 ... Binary 0 1 10 11 100 101 ... 3 is before its natural position ('1' + beginning of '2' > 011...) The same for : 5: '2' + beginning of '3' > 01101... 6: '1' + '2' > 0110... etc. In the first 5 binary numbers we can find ahead of their natural place: 3,5,6,7,9,11,12,13,14,18,23,25,27,28,37,46,50,55,57
20 ('10100') occurs at the joint of 18 and 19: the last 2 digits of '10010' and the first three of '10011'
