The Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEIS) is a catalog of integer sequences. We are particularly interested in the number of occurrences of N(n) of an integer n in the database. This number N(n) marks the importance of n and it varies noticeably from one number to another, and from one number to the next in a series. \Importance" can be mathematically objective (2 10 is an example of an \important" number in this sense) or as the result of a shared mathematical culture (10 9 is more…

An empirical approach is suggested to overcome the difficulty and obtain a stable definition of the Kolmogorov-Chaitin complexity for short sequences and a correlation in terms of distribution frequencies was found across the output of two models of abstract machines, namely unidimensional cellular automata and deterministic Turing machine.
