COMMENTS

From M. F. Hasler, Nov 09 2013: (Start)
At each step, choose the smallest number not occurring earlier and such that a(n+1)+a(n) are palindromes, for all n.
Conjectured to be a permutation of the nonnegative integers.
See A062932 where injectivity is replaced by monotonicity; the sequences differ from a(16)=15 on.
This is an "arithmetic" analog to sequences A228407 and A228410, where instead of the sum, the union of the digits of subsequent terms is considered. (End)
