COMMENTS

Also: a(1)=1, a(n) = maximal positive integer < a(n-1) not yet in the sequence, if it exists, else a(n) = 5*a(n-1).

Also: a(1)=1, a(n) = a(n-1) - 1, if a(n-1) - 1 > 0 and has not been encountered so far, else a(n) = 5*a(n-1).

A permutation of the positive integers. The sequence is self-inverse, in that a(a(n)) = n.

FORMULA

G.f.: g(x) = (x(1-2x)/(1-x) + 5x^2*f'(x^(9/4)) + (9/25)*(f'(x^(1/4)) - 5x - 1))/(1-x) where f(x) = Sum_{k>=0} x^(5^k) and f'(z) = derivative of f(x) at x = z.

a(n) = (14*5^(r/2) - 6)/4 - n, if both r and s are even, else a(n) = (34*5^((s-1)/2) - 6)/4 - n, where r = ceiling(2*log_5((4n+5)/9)) and s = ceiling(2*log_5((4n+5)/5)) - 1.

a(n) = (5^floor(1 + (k+1)/2) + 9*5^floor(k/2) - 6)/4 - n, where k=r, if r is odd, else k=s (with respect to r and s above; formally, k = ((r+s) - (r-s)*(-1)^r)/2).

a(n) = A133629(m) + A133629(m+1) + 1 - n, where m:=max{ k | A133629(k) < n }.

a(A133629(n) + 1) = A133629(n+1).

a(A133629(n)) = A133629(n-1) + 1 for n > 0.
