 A075537 a(1)=1, a(2)=2, then use "merge and minus": a(n)=merge(a(n-2),a(n-1))-a(n-2)-a(n-1)). 1

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS A rapidly growing sequence. An even more rapidly growing sequence with "merge and minus" rule is A075538. LINKS EXAMPLE a(3)=9 because a(1)=1, a(2)=2 and a(3)=merge(a(1), a(2))-a(1)-a(2)=12-1-2=9; a(4)=18 because a(2)=2, a(3)=9 and a(4)=merge(a(2), a(3))-a(2)-a(3)=29-2-9=18. MATHEMATICA se={1, 2}; a=1; b=2; Do[ab=ToExpression[ToString[a]<>ToString[b]]-a-b; se=Append[se, ab]; a=b; b=ab, {i, 10}]; se CROSSREFS Cf. A075538.
