a(n) = n if n <= 2, otherwise the smallest number not occurring earlier having in its binary representation at least one bit in common with a(n2), but none with a(n1).

COMMENTS

Conjectured to be a permutation of the nonnegative integers. [Comment modified by N. J. A. Sloane, Jan 10 2015]
This is a purely setbased version of A098550, using the binary representation of numbers.

EXAMPLE

The sequence of sets is {}, {0}, {1}, {0,2}, {1,3}, {2}, {0,1}, {3,4}. After the initial 3 terms, a(n) is the minimum set (as ordered by A048793) that has a nonempty intersection with a(n2) but empty intersection with a(n1).
Comment from N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 31 2014: The binary expansions of the first few terms are:
0 = 000000
1 = 000001
2 = 000010
5 = 000101
10 = 001010
4 = 000100
3 = 000011
12 = 001100
17 = 010001
6 = 000110
9 = 001001
18 = 010010
8 = 001000
7 = 000111
24 = 011000
33 = 100001
14 = 001110
32 = 100000
11 = 001011
36 = 100100
19 = 010011
40 = 101000
