Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

A fractal sequence: if you delete the first occurrence of each positive

integer, the remaining sequence is the original. This procedure is called

upper trimming, in contrast to lower trimming, which consists of

subtracting 1 from each term of the original fractal sequence and then

deleting all 0's. In general, the lower trim of a fractal sequence is a

fractal sequence; in particular, the lower trim of A003603 is A167237.

FORMULA

Although A167237 is closely associated with the Wythoff array (A035513)

and Fibonacci numbers (A000045), it can be constructed independently.

First, construct the fractal sequence of the Wythoff array inductively

as described at A003603; then subtract 1 from all terms and delete

all 0's.

EXAMPLE

The first 7 rows in the construction of A003603 are
