a(a(n))=n, a self-inverse permutation of natural numbers.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..65.

Index entries for sequences that are permutations of the natural numbers

Multiplicative with a(p) = (if p mod 4 = 3 and p+2 is prime then p+2 else (if p mod 4 = 1 and p-2 is prime then p-2 else p)), p prime.

a(42) = a(2*3*7) = a(2)*a(3)*a(7) = a(2)*a(4*0+3)*a(7) = 2*(4*1+1)*7 = 2*5*7 = 70.
