 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 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Arrange 1, 2, 3, ... n clockwise in a circle. Starting the count at 1, delete every k-th integer clockwise until only one remains, which is T(k,n). The main diagonal of the array (1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 4, 5, 4, ...) is A007495. Consecutive columns down to the main diagonal (1, 2, 1, 3, 3, 2, 4, 1, 1, 2, ...) is A032434. Period lengths of columns (1, 2, 6, 12, 60, 60, 420, 840, ...) is A003418.
