 A330780 Lexicographically earliest sequence of positive integers such that for any v > 0, the value v appears up to v^2 times, and the associate function f defined by f(n) = Sum_{k = 1..n} a(k) * m(k) for n >= 0 is injective (where {m(k)} corresponds to knight's moves, see Comments for precise definition). 4

%C The sequence {m(k)} is 8-periodic:

%C m(1) = 2 + i,

%C m(2) = 1 + 2*i, m(3) | m(2)

%C m(3) = -1 + 2*i, * | *

%C m(4) = -2 + i, m(4) * | * m(1)

%C m(5) = -2 - i, ------+------

%C m(6) = -1 - 2*i, m(5) * | * m(8)

%C m(7) = 1 - 2*i, * | *

%C m(8) = 2 - i. m(6) | m(7)
