%F Let a(n) = this sequence, b(n) = A099357. Then a(n) = the smallest number not in {a(0), b(0), a(1), b(1), ..., a(n-1), b(n-1)}; b(n) = b(n-1) + (-1)^a(n-1)*a(n-1) + a(n) + 1. Apart from initial zero, complement of A099357.

%p a:=proc(n) option remember: local j, t: if(n=0)then return 0: else t:=a(n-1)+1: for j from 0 to n-1 do if(t=b(j))then return t+1: elif(t<b(j))then break: fi: od: return t: fi: end:

%p b:=proc(n) option remember: if(n=0)then return 0: else return b(n-1) + (-1)^a(n-1)*a(n-1) + a(n) + 1: fi: end:
