 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 A081260 a(1)=4; for n>1, a(n) is taken to be the third-smallest integer greater than a(n-1) such that the condition "n is a member of the sequence if and only if a(n) is odd" is satisfied. 1

J. A. Sloane and M. J. Vandermast, Numerical analogues of Aronson's sequence (math.NT/0305308) EXAMPLE a(1)=4, implying that the fourth term is the first odd member of the sequence; hence a(2) and a(3) are even. The third-smallest even integer greater than 4 is 10; therefore a(2)=10. The third-smallest integers that can satisfy the given condition if taken as a(3) and a(4) are 16 and 21, respectively.
