We look at a family of meta-Fibonacci sequences which arise in
studying the number of leaves at the largest level in certain
infinite sequences of binary trees, restricted compositions of
an integer, and binary compact codes.
For this family of meta-Fibonacci sequences and two families of
related sequences we derive ordinary generating functions and
Included in these families of sequences are several well-known
sequences in the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEIS).
