COMMENTS

This gives indices n for which A135727(n) is larger than all preceding values of that sequence. As in A135727(n), we include the fixed point 0 in the domain of A001281. Obviously, many but not all entries are of the form 2^k+1 and not all of such numbers are in the sequence (e.g. 257, 1025, 2049 are missing). Is there a simple way of characterizing the exceptions?
