 A132670 a(1)=1, a(n) = 6*a(n-1) if the minimal positive integer not yet in the sequence is greater than a(n-1), else a(n) = a(n-1) - 1. 0

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Also: a(1)=1, a(n) = maximal positive integer < a(n-1) not yet in the sequence, if it exists, else a(n) = 6*a(n-1). Also: a(1)=1, a(n) = a(n-1) - 1, if a(n-1) - 1 > 0 and has not been encountered so far, else a(n) = 6*a(n-1). A permutation of the positive integers. The sequence is self-inverse, in that a(a(n)) = n. LINKS FORMULA G.f.: g(x) = (x(1-2x)/(1-x) + 6x^2*f'(x^(11/5)) + (11/36)*(f'(x^(1/5)) - 6x - 1)/(1-x) where f(x) = Sum_{k>=0} x^(6^k) and f'(z) = derivative of f(x) at x = z. a(n) = (17*6^(r/2) - 7)/5 - n if both r and s are even, else a(n) = (47*6^((s-1)/2) - 7)/5 - n, where r = ceiling(2*log_6((5n+6)/11)) and s = ceiling(2*log_6((5n+6)/6)) - 1. a(n) = (6^floor(1 + (k+1)/2) + 11*6^floor(k/2) - 7)/5 - n, where k=r if r is odd, else k=s (with respect to r and s above; formally, k = ((r+s) - (r-s)*(-1)^r)/2).
