|Certain seemingly simple sequences of integers baffle the best mathematicians. Other sequences, less baffling, exhibit patterns - or absence of patterns - whose appeal shines beyond whatever applications these sequence might find outside mathematics. Examples: primes, Fibonacci numbers, and the Kolakoski sequence; short essays on: Fractal Sequences (they contain themselves as proper subsequences); Interspersions and Dispersions, for example, the Wythoff array; Continued Fractions, Fibonacci numbers, golden mean, best approximations; and Unsolved Problems and Rewards; earn $300 !, with a link to Sloane's On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences. Also links to Triangle Centers and some biographical studies.|
