COMMENTS

138, 185 and 199 are three smallest numbers that do not appear among the first 5000 terms of the sequence. They first appear at n = 8776, 5117 and 10580 respectively.
1187 and 1190 are two smallest numbers that do not appear among the first 100000 terms.
Question: will every natural number eventually appear in the sequence?
The sequence can be started with any number a(0). The terms will be different, but for larger n behavior will be similar for all a(0).

FORMULA

a(n) = A142150(n) = A171181(n), if 0<=n<=20.
a(n) = A248034(n19), if 21<=n<=120.  Omar E. Pol, Sep 03 2016


EXAMPLE

From a(0) to a(0), a(1) appears once, thus a(2) = 1.
From a(0) to a(1), a(2) appears 0 times, thus a(3) = 0.
...
From a(0) to a(19), a(20) = 10 appears once, in the form of '1,0'. Thus a(21) = 1.
