%C From _Clark Kimberling_, Oct 30 2017: (Start)

%C The complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. The initial values of each sequence in the following guide are a(0) = 1, a(2) = 3, b(0) = 2, b(1) = 4:

%C here: a(n) = a(n-1) + b(n-2) [with a different offset]

%C A294397: a(n) = a(n-1) + b(n-2) + 1;

%C A294398: a(n) = a(n-1) + b(n-2) + 2;

%C A294399: a(n) = a(n-1) + b(n-2) + 3;

%C A294400: a(n) = a(n-1) + b(n-2) + n;

%C A294401: a(n) = a(n-1) + b(n-2) + 2*n.

%C (End)
