  author={Jessica Millar and N. J. A. Sloane and Neal E. Young},
  journal={J. Comb. Theory, Ser. A},
A generalization of the Seidel-Entringer-Arnold method for calculating the alternating permutation numbers (or secant-tangent numbers) leads to a new operation on sequences, the boustrophedon transform. This paper was published (in a somewhat different form) in J. Combinatorial Theory, Series A, 76 (1996), pp. 44–54.
