 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Permutation of the integers: exchange trisections starting with 2 and 3. a(a(n)) = n. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 29 2004 LINKS Guenther Schrack, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,1,-1). FORMULA a(n) - n is periodic with period 3. a(n) = n + ((n+1) mod 3), with n >= 0. - Paolo P.
