Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

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

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.
