%N Self-inverse permutation of natural numbers induced by Catalan Automorphism *A072796 acting on the parenthesizations encoded by A014486.

%C This automorphism effects the following transformation on the unlabeled rooted plane binary trees (letters A, B, C refer to arbitrary subtrees located on those nodes and () stands for an implied terminal node.)

%C ...B...C...........A...C

%C ....\./.............\./

%C .A...x....-->....B...x.................A..().........A...()..

%C ..\./.............\./...................\./....-->....\./...

%C ...x...............x.....................x.............x....

%C (a . (b . c)) -> (b . (a . c)) ______ (a . ()) ---> (a . ())

%C In terms of general trees, it swaps the two leftmost branches of the tree if its degree (i.e. of the root) > 1 and keeps the tree intact if it is planted (root's degree = 1).

%C Note that the first clause corresponds to what is called "generator pi_0" in Thompson's group V. (See also A074679, A089851 and A154121 for other related generators).

%C Look at the example in A069770 to see how this will produce the given sequence of integers.
