# Talk:N-numbers

From OeisWiki

## N-numbers N0001 to N2372 were not originally used in *A Handbook of Integer Sequences* (it used 1 to 2372 instead)

*A Handbook of Integer Sequences*contains 2372 sequences in lexicographic order which are assigned numbers from 1 to 2372.

- The
*The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences*includes the references to the corresponding sequences (which may differ in their few initial terms) in*A Handbook of Integer Sequences*as N-numbers from N0001 to N2372 (instead of 1 to 2372).

I'm pretty sure I've seen 1 to 2372 used in *A Handbook of Integer Sequences* when I checked at the library. — Daniel Forgues 05:27, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

*Encyclopedia*but not the*Handbook*. From what I can recall of the*Handbook*, ... actually, I can't recall at the moment. Without the letter N, the numbers 1 to 2372 would seem to offer potential for confusion. - In regards to the

I'll check the*Handbook*at the library in the next few days. — Daniel Forgues 01:57, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
