Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Row #n pertains to Huffman encoding of n symbols, where the k-th symbol has frequency k. Let b(k) be the number of bits used to encode the symbol of frequency k. The row has the values of k such that b(k)>b(k+1).

Each row is ordered descendingly; each ends with '2'. Row #3 is first.

EXAMPLE

In row #8, the frequencies are 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and a Huffman encoding is (1->00000, 2->00001, 3->0001, 4->001, 5->010, 6->011, 7->10, 8->11). The codes shrink after k=6,3,2; so row #8 has 6,3,2.

CROSSREFS

The length of the n-th row is in A126237. The minimum and maximum lengths of codewords are in A126235 and A126236.
