 A082429 a(n) is the cardinality of the smallest subset S1 of S={1,2,3,...,n} such that every element of S is either in S1 or is the sum of two elements of S1. 0
 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,2 LINKS EXAMPLE a(6)=3 since, for S1={1,2,4}, we have 1=1, 2=2, 3=1+2, 4=4, 5=1+4 and 6=2+4 and no set S1 with fewer than three elements has the required property.
