COMMENTS

Rule 1 follows.  For k >= 1, let  A(k) = {a(1), …, a(k)} and D(k) = {d(1), …, d(k)}.  Begin with k = 1 and nonnegative integers a(1) and d(1).

Step 1:   If there is an integer h such that 1 - a(k) < h < 0 and h is not in D(k) and a(k) + h is not in A(k), let d(k+1) be the greatest such h, let a(k+1) = a(k) + h, replace k by k + 1, and repeat Step 1; otherwise do Step 2.

Step 2:  Let h be the least positive integer not in D(k) such that a(k) + h is not in A(k).  Let a(k+1) = a(k) + h and d(k+1) = h.  Replace k by k+1 and do Step 1.

Conjecture:  if a(1) is an nonnegative integer and d(1) is an integer, then (a(n)) is a permutation of the nonnegative integers (if a(1) = 0) or a permutation of the positive integers (if a(1) > 0).  Moreover, (d(n)) is a permutation of the integers if d(1) = 0, or of the nonzero integers if d(1) > 0.

FORMULA

a(k+1) - a(k) = d(k+1) for k >= 1.

EXAMPLE

a(2)=1+1, a(3)=a(2)+2, a(4)=a(3)+(-1), a(5)=a(4)+3, a(6)=a(5)+4.

MATHEMATICA

(*Program 1 *)

{a, f} = {{1}, {0}}; Do[tmp = {#, # - Last[a]} &[Max[Complement[#, Intersection[a, #]] &[Last[a] + Complement[#, Intersection[f, #]] &[Range[2 - Last[a], -1]]]]];

If[! IntegerQ[tmp[[1]]], tmp = {Last[a] + #, #} &[NestWhile[# + 1 &, 1, ! (! MemberQ[f, #] && ! MemberQ[a, Last[a] + #]) &]]];

AppendTo[a, tmp[[1]]]; AppendTo[f, tmp[[2]]], {400}];

{a, f} (*{A131388, A131389}; Peter J. C. Moses, May 10 2015*)

(*Program 2 *)

a[1] = 1; d[1] = 0; k = 1; z = 10000; zz = 120;

A[k_] := Table[a[i], {i, 1, k}]; diff[k_] := Table[d[i], {i, 1, k}];

c[k_] := Complement[Range[-z, z], diff[k]];

T[k_] := -a[k] + Complement[Range[z], A[k]];

s[k_] := Intersection[Range[-a[k], -1], c[k], T[k]];

Table[If[Length[s[k]] == 0, {h = Min[Intersection[c[k], T[k]]], a[k + 1] = a[k] + h, d[k + 1] = h, k = k + 1}, {h = Max[s[k]], a[k + 1] = a[k] + h, d[k + 1] = h, k = k + 1}], {i, 1, zz}];
