 A207827 First line of the upper right triangle A207826: Least T[1,n]>0 such that the n-th column can be filled with T[k+1,n] = |T[k,n-1]-T[k,n]| or T[k,n-1]+T[k,n] if the former was used earlier. 2

%N First line of the upper right triangle A207826: Least T[1,n]>0 such that the n-th column can be filled with T[k+1,n] = |T[k,n-1]-T[k,n]| or T[k,n-1]+T[k,n] if the former was used earlier.

%C This version differs from the first version A207829, where all possibilities of x+y vs |x-y| are tested in a given column, before discarding a candidate for the next element of the first line. Here a candidate a(n)=T[1,n] is discarded when successive ("greedy") choices of smallest possible elements T[k,n] (k=2, 3,...) lead (in some subsequent row k) to a situation where no choice is possible, i.e., both |T[k,n-1]-T[k,n]| and T[k,n-1]+T[k,n] appear earlier.
