COMMENTS

The sequence is not monotonically increasing but has an increasing trend with some nodes i.e. numbers occurring twice in the sequence like 60 etc. Are there infinitely many nodes in the sequence.?

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..56.

EXAMPLE

Since 12 divides a(11)=60, a(12) = 60 - 12 = 48.

Since 13 does not divide a(12)=48, a(13) = 48 + 13 = 61.

PROG

(PARI) lista(nn) = {preca = 0; for (n=1, nn, print1(preca, ", "); if (preca == 0, nexta = n, if (preca % n, nexta = preca + n, nexta = preca - n); ); preca = nexta; ); } \\ Michel Marcus, Jan 23 2014
