COMMENTS

This sequence is known to be a permutation of positive integers, along with its absolute difference sequence (A129199).
The rule for constructing the sequence is as follows: a(1)=1, a(2)=2, then apply the following recursion, assuming the members are already present up to index k: let M(k)=max(a(1),a(2),...,a(k)) and let n(k) be the smallest positive integer not present in the sequence yet, while m(k) the smallest integer not present in the absolute difference sequence (d(1),d(2),...,d(k1)), so far. Then a(k+1)=2M(k)+1 and if m(k)<=n(k) then set a(k+2)=a(k+1)m(k), else a(k+2)=n(k).
In the paper of Slater and Velez it is shown that both the sequence a(n) and d(n) are permutations of positive integers (in spite of their strange appearance).
