Basic Corner Position

To solve this problem, determine the status of the corner, i.e., what is the best sequence for both sides. This problem comes from the superb book, "Life and Death", by James Davies. Saying that nearly every game of go either directly or indirectly has a position from this book is probably not a big exaggeration.
