A274648


A variation on Recamán's sequence (A005132): a(n) is the first positive number of the form a(n1)n*k, k>0 not already in the sequence; and if no such number exists, then a(n) is the first number of the form a(n1)+n*k, k>0 not already in the sequence.

COMMENTS

Is this a permutation of the natural numbers?
The inverse is: 0, 1, 4, 2, 164, 19, 3, 5, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 8228, 28, 51, 26, 158, 24, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 46, 90, ..., . Robert G. Wilson v, Sep 07 2016
After 3.2*10^11 terms, the smallest number which has not appeared is 154.  Benjamin Chaffin, Oct 05 2016
