Friedman's TREE(2)?
What is the correct value of Friedman's TREE(2)?
Near the end of
http://www.cs.nyu.edu/pipermail/fom/2006March/010260.html
it's stated that TR(2) = 2
and near the beginning of
http://www.cs.nyu.edu/pipermail/fom/2006March/010279.html
this is repeated in the form TREE(2) = 2.
Can someone please confirm that these are typos, and should be
TR(2) = TREE(2) = 3?
.... Or otherwise explain why the following sequence of vertex
labelled rooted trees is not a counterexample ...
T_1: 2
T_2: 11
T_3: 1
Thanks.
r.e.s.
