## Details

The recursion relations are set up so that whenever they sample below , the is taken to have value 1.

Functions like these were mentioned in *A New Kind of Science*, but first studied in detail in Stephen Wolfram's Live Experiment at the opening of the first NKS Summer School, in June 2003.
