COMMENTS

A sparse maximal expulsion set under addition.

Note that this is not the sparse expulsion set constructed in Kevin Brown's article, which is A167209. That sequence has 67 where this one has 66.

EXAMPLE

After {0,1,4,10}, 0, 1, 1 + 1, 4, 4 - 1, 1 + 4, 10 - 4, etc. are excluded, but 7 is not, so next term is 10 + 7 = 17.

MATHEMATICA

a=0; s={a}; X=Complement[Range[10^4], {0, a, 2a}]; Do[b=a+X[[1]]; X=Complement[X, s+b, b-s, {b, 2b}]; AppendTo[s, b]; a=b, {100}]; s (* Zak Seidov, Jul 14 2010 *)
