Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A002251 Start with the nonnegative integers; then swap L(k) and U(k) for all k >= 1, where L = A000201, U = A001950 (lower and upper Wythoff sequences). 22

COMMENTS

(n,a(n)) are Wythoff pairs: (0,0), (1,2), (3,5), (4,7), ..., where each difference occurs once.

Self-inverse when considered as a permutation or function, i.e. a(a(n)) = n. - Howard A. Landman, Sep 25 2001

If the offset is 1, the sequence can also be obtained by rearranging the natural numbers so that sum of n terms is a multiple of n, or equivalently so that the arithmetic mean of the first n terms is an integer. - Amarnath Murthy, Aug 16 2002

For n = 1, 2, 3, ..., let p(n)=least natural number not already an a(k), q(n) = n + p(n); then a(p(n)) = q(n), a(q(n)) = p(n). - Clark Kimberling

Also, indices of powers of 2 in A086482. - Amarnath Murthy, Jul 26 2003

FORMULA

a(n) = A019444(n+1) - 1.

MATHEMATICA

PROG

(PARI) A002251_upto(N, c=0, A=Vec(0, N))={for(n=1, N, A[n]||(#A<A[n]=n+c++)|| A[n+c]=n); A} \\ The resulting vector starts with A002251[1]=2, a(0)=0 is not included. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 27 2019, replacing earlier code from Sep 17 2014

CROSSREFS

The sequence maps between A000201 and A001950, in that a(A000201(n)) = A001950(n), a(A001950(n)) = A000201(n).

Row 0 of A018219. Cf. A073869.

Sequence in context: A332022 A109261 A085240 * A093545 A293845 A249265

Adjacent sequences:  A002248 A002249 A002250 * A002252 A002253 A002254
