%N a(0) = 0, and for n >=1, a(n) = the largest Catalan number <= n.

%C After n>0, A000108(n) occurs A000245(n) times.

%C For all n>0, a(A000108(n)) = A000108(n) [the first occurrence of the n-th Catalan number in this sequence].

%C Minimal i such that A081289(i) >= A081289(n) [the original definition of the sequence].

%C In other words, the first position k in A081289 where A081289(n) occurs (the minimal k such that A081289(k) = A081289(n)), and also the first position k in A081288 where A081288(n) occurs (the minimal k such that A081288(k) = A081288(n)). The starting point of the run which contains the n-th term in those sequences.

%F a(0) = 0, a(n) = A000108(A081288(n)-1).
