Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

EXAMPLE

A179016(2) = 3 is the first case where the next term A179016(3) = 4 is the smaller of two branches from 3 (the larger is 5, as 5 = 3+A000120(5)), thus the first term of this sequence is 2.

The next case occurs at A179016(4) = 7, as the next term here is again 8, the smaller of two branches from 7 (the larger being 9, as 9 = 7+A000120(9), thus the second term of this sequence is 4.

PROG

(Scheme with Antti Karttunen's Intseq-library): (define A218772 (NONZERO-POS 1 0 (compose-funs A213728 1+)))

CROSSREFS
