COMMENTS

Jointrank arrays are introduced here as follows.
Suppose that R={f(i,j)} is set of positive numbers, where i and j range through countable sets I and J, respectively, such that for every n, then number f(i,j) < n is finite. Let T(i,j) be the position of f(i,j) in the joint ranking of all the numbers in R. The jointrank array of R is the array T whose ith row is T(i,j).
For A182801, f(i,j)=j*r^(i1), where r=(1+sqrt(5))/2 and I=J={1,2,3,...}.
(row 1)=A020959; (row 2)=A020960; (row 3)=A020961.
(col 1)=A020956; (col 2)=A020957; (col 3)=A020958.
Every positive integer occurs exactly once in A182801, so that as a sequence it is a permutation of the positive integers.
