(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A079905 a(1)=1; then a(n) is smallest positive integer which is consistent with sequence being monotonically increasing and satisfying a(a(n)) = 2n+1 for n>1. 7

COMMENTS

Alternate definition: a(n) is taken to be smallest positive integer greater than a(n-1) such that the condition "a(a(n)) is always odd" can be satisfied. - Matthew Vandermast, Mar 03 2003

Also: a(n)=smallest positive integer > a(n-1) such that the condition "n is in the sequence if and only if a(n) is even" is false; that is, the condition "either n is not in the sequence and a(n) is odd or n is in the sequence and a(n) is even" is satisfied. - Matthew Vandermast, Mar 05 2003

FORMULA

a(1)=1, a(2)=3, then a(3*2^k - 1 + j) = 4*2^k - 1 + 3j/2 + |j|/2 for k >= 1, -2^k <= j < 2^k.

a(n) = 1+A079945(n-1)-A079944(n-1) for n>1, a(1)=1. - Antonio G. Astudillo (afg_astudillo(AT)hotmail.com), Feb 23 2003
