This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS This is the unique monotonic sequence {a(n)}, n>=2, satisfying a(a(n)) = 2n. May also be defined by: a(n), n=2,3,4,..., is smallest positive integer greater than a(n-1) which is consistent with the condition "n is a member of the sequence if and only if a(n) is an even number >= 4". - N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 23 2003 A monotone sequence satisfying a^(k+1)(n) = mn is unique if m=2, k >= 0 or if (k,m) = (1,3).
