COMMENTS

Background discussion: Suppose that s is an increasing sequence of positive integers, that the complement t of s is infinite, and that t(1)=1. The dispersion of s is the array D whose nth row is (t(n), s(t(n)), s(s(t(n)), s(s(s(t(n)))), ...). Every positive integer occurs exactly once in D, so that, as a sequence, D is a permutation of the positive integers. The sequence u given by u(n)=(number of the row of D that contains n) is a fractal sequence. Examples:
(1) s=A000040 (the primes), D=A114537, u=A114538.
(2) s=A022343 (without initial 0), D=A035513 (Wythoff array), u=A003603.
(3) s=A007067, D=A035506 (Stolarsky array), u=A133299.
