COMMENTS

The following description, due to D. R. Hofstadter, Email, Oct 23 2014, is presumably equivalent to Fraenkel's. Begin with 1, and then each new member is 2k1, where k is the smallest unused nonmember of the sequence. Thus k starts out as 2, so 2k1 = 3, so 3 is the sequence's second member. The next value of k is 4, giving 2k1 = 7, so 7 is the sequence's third member. Then k = 5, so 9 is the next member. Then k = 6, so 11 is the next member. Then k = 8, so 15 is the next member. Etc.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Block[{a = {1}, b = {}, k}, Do[k = 2; While[MemberQ[a, k]  MemberQ[b, k], k++]; AppendTo[a, 2 k  1]; AppendTo[b, k], {i, 2, n}]; a]; f@ 120 (* Michael De Vlieger, Jul 20 2015 *)


PROG

(Haskell)
import Data.List (delete)

a171947_list = 1 : f [2..] where
f (w:ws) = y : f (delete y ws) where y = 2 * w  1
