A100035


a(n+1) occurs not earlier as a neighbor of terms = a(n): either it is the greatest number < a(n) or, if no such number exists, the smallest number > a(n); a(1) = 1.

COMMENTS

The natural numbers (A000027) occur infinitely many times as disjoint subsequences, see the example below and A100036, A100037, A100038 and A100039: exactly one k exists for all x < y such that a(k) = x and (a(k1) = y or a(k+1) = y).
a(2*k^2 + k + 1) = a(A084849(k)) = 1 for k >= 0;
a(2*k^2  3*k) = a(A014107(k)) = 2 for k > 1;
a(2*k^2 + 5*k) = a(A033537(k)) = 3 for k > 1;
a(2*k^2 + k  5) = a(A100040(k)) = 4 for k > 2;
a(2*k^2 + k  7) = a(A100041(k)) = 5 for k > 3.
