%C Let A be sequence A092542 (this sequence) and B be sequence A092543 (1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, ...). Under upper trimming or lower trimming, A transforms into B and B transforms into A. Also, B gives the number of times each element of A appears. For example, A(7) = 1 and B(7) = 4 because the 1 in A(7) is the fourth 1 to appear in A. - _Kerry Mitchell_, Dec 28 2005

%C First inverse function (numbers of rows) for pairing function A056023 and second inverse function (numbers of columns) for pairing function A056011. - _Boris Putievskiy_, Dec 24 2012

%C The rational numbers a(n)/A092543(n) can be systematically ordered and numbered in this way, as Georg Cantor first proved in 1873. - _Martin Renner_, Jun 05 2016
