Ppositions of John H. Conway's "Digit Deletions" game from "On Numbers and Games". Each number is the smallest positive integer that cannot be reduced to an earlier number in the sequence, by performing one of the following two operations: (1) changing one digit to a smaller digit (but not changing the leading digit to 0), or (2) deleting a 0 and all subsequent digits.

COMMENTS

The sequence is basedependent, but notice that each number in a given base's sequence has a correspondent in all higher bases (the number with the same digit representation). The smallest ndigit number in the sequence is always a repunit.

EXAMPLE

201 is in the sequence because every number it may be reduced to (101, 2, 200) is not in the sequence: 101 and 2 both reduce to 1 and 200 reduces to 20.
