Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Permutation of the positive natural numbers with inverse A225047: a(A225047(n)) = A225047(a(n)) = n. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Apr 25 2013

I confirm that this is a permutation. - N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 28 2015 [This can be proved using an argument similar to (but simpler than) the proof in A093714. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 05 2022]
