COMMENTS

Every positive integer occurs exactly twice. a(n) is the parent of n in the tree at A074049. - Clark Kimberling, Dec 24 2010

Apparently, if n=F(m) (a Fibonacci number), one of two circumstances arise:

I. a(n)=F(m-1) and a(n-1)=F(m-2). When this happens, a(n) occurs for the first time and a(n-1) occurs for the second time;

II. a(n)=F(m-2) and a(n-1)=F(m-1). When this happens, a(n) occurs for the second time and a(n-1) occurs for the first time. - Bob Selcoe, Sep 18 2014

These are the numerators when all fractions, j/r and k/r^2, are arranged in increasing order (where r = golden ratio and j,k are positive integers). - Clark Kimberling, Mar 02 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = a(m) if a(m) has already occurred exactly once and n = a(m) + m; otherwise, a(n) = least positive integer that has not yet occurred.

a(n) = abs(A002251(n) - n).

n = a(n) + a(n-1) unless n = A089910(m); if n = A089910(m), then n = a(n) + a(n-1) - m. - Bob Selcoe, Sep 20 2014
