COMMENTS

The nonarithmetic-3-progression sequences starting with a(1)=1, a(2)=1+3^m or 1+2*3^m, m>=0, seem to have especially simple 'closed' forms. None of these formulas have been proved, however.

T(m,1)=1, T(m,2) = 1+(1+[m even])*3^[m/2] = 1+A038754(m), m>=0, n>0; T(m,n) is least k such that no three terms of T(m,1),T(m,2),...,T(m,n-1),k form an arithmetic progression.

FORMULA

T(m, n) = sum[k=1, n-1, (3^A007814(k)+1)/2] + f(n), with f(n) a P-periodic function, where P <= 2^[(m+3)/2] (conjectured and checked up to m=13, n=1000).

The formula implies that T(m, n)=b(n-1) where b(2n)=3b(n)+p(n), b(2n+1)=3b(n)+q(n), with p, q sequences generated by rational o.g.f.s.
