COMMENTS

These rational numbers represent a FRACTRAN program that generates the decimal expansion of Pi (A000796).
Conway proves that, when this program is started at 2^k (with k >= 0), the next power of 2 to appear is 2^Pi_d(k), where Pi_d(0) = 3 and, for k >= 1, Pi_d(k) is the kth digit after the point in the decimal expansion of Pi.
