A002251


Start with the nonnegative integers; then swap L(k) and U(k) for all k >= 1, where L = A000201, U = A001950 (lower and upper Wythoff sequences).

COMMENTS

(n,a(n)) are Wythoff pairs: (0,0), (1,2), (3,5), (4,7), ..., where each difference occurs once.
Selfinverse when considered as a permutation or function, i.e. a(a(n)) = n.  Howard A. Landman, Sep 25 2001
If the offset is 1, the sequence can also be obtained by rearranging the natural numbers so that sum of n terms is a multiple of n, or equivalently so that the arithmetic mean of the first n terms is an integer.  Amarnath Murthy, Aug 16 2002
For n = 1, 2, 3, ..., let p(n)=least natural number not already an a(k), q(n) = n + p(n); then a(p(n)) = q(n), a(q(n)) = p(n).  Clark Kimberling
Also, indices of powers of 2 in A086482.  Amarnath Murthy, Jul 26 2003
