COMMENTS

A206074 gives an ordering {p(n,x)} of the polynomials

with coefficients in {0,1}.  The least n for which p(n,x) has a root r less than -1 is 13, hence the choice of 13 as the initial term of A206443.  (Specifically, p(13,x)=1+x^2+x^3, and r=-1.46557...)  The next p(n,x) having a root less than -1 and >r is p(37,x)=1+x^2+x^5, with least root -1.1938...
