COMMENTS

Rule 3 follows.  For k >= 1, let  A(k) = {a(1), …, a(k)} and D(k) = {d(1), …, d(k)}.  Begin with k = 1 and nonnegative integers a(1) and d(1).

Step 1:  If there is an integer h such that 1 - a(k) < h < 0 and h is not in D(k) and a(k) + h is not in A(k), let d(k+1) be the least such h, let a(k+1) = a(k) + h, replace k by k + 1, and repeat Step 1; otherwise do Step 2.

Step 2:  Let h be the least positive integer not in D(k) such that a(k) - h is not in A(k).  Let a(k+1) = a(k) + h and d(k+1) = h.  Replace k by k+1 and do Step 1.

See A257905 for a guide to related sequences and conjectures.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 0, d(1) = 1;

a(2) = 2, d(2) = 2;

a(3) = 5, d(3) = 3;

a(4) = 3, d(4) = -2.

                  y = x + h

                  (h:_) = [z | z <- [1..] \\ ds, x - z `notElem` xs]
