COMMENTS

A selfinverse permutation of the nonnegative numbers.
If we ignore the first term 0, then this can be obtained as: a(n) is the smallest number different from n, not occurring earlier and coprime to n.  Amarnath Murthy, Apr 16 2003 [Corrected by Alois P. Heinz, May 06 2015]
a(0)=0, a(1)=2, then repeatedly subtract 1 and then add 3.  Jon Perry, Aug 12 2014
The biggest term of the pair [a(n), a(n+1)] is always even. This is the lexicographically first sequence with this property starting with a(1) = 0 and always extented with the smallest integer not yet present.  Eric Angelini, Feb 20 2017

FORMULA

G.f.: (2x+x^2)/((1x)*(1x^2)). [ N. J. A. Sloane ]
a(n) = n(1)^n = a(n1)+a(n2)a(n3) = a(n2)+2.  Henry Bottomley, Mar 29 2000
a(0) = 0; a(2m+1) = 2m+2; for m > 0 a(2m) = 2m  1.  George E. Antoniou, Dec 04 2001
a(n) = n(1)^n+0^n for n>=0.  Bruno Berselli, Nov 16 2010
