# [seqfan] Re: Should A000201 and A026352 be cross-referenced?

``` Thank you, Allan. I will add the comment below to A026352 and cross-refrenced it to A000201.
"Consider the state of a system consists of an infinite sequence of integers, and it is initialized to 1,2,3,4,5,... The transition rule is to remove the leading
element k, and increment the next k entries. So, after one step, the state is 3,3,4,5,6,...; after two steps it is 4,5,6,6,7,8,...; after three steps it is 6,7,7,8,8,9,10,... We then read off either the largest or the smallest entry that was incremented by that step. The resulting sequences are A026352 and A000201 respectively." [From Allan Wechsler via Seqfan]
Best,
Ali

To me that certainly warrants a cross-reference, assuming the
interpretation is really true of A026352. There is already a comment on
A000201 from Roland Schroeder, dated June 19, 2010, which describes the
