EXAMPLE

First few steps are:

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,...

n = 1, a(1) = 1; delete terms at positions 2 to 2; this is 2;

1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,...

n = 2,a(2) = 3; delete terms at positions 5 to 7; these are 6,7,8;

1,3,4,5,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,...

n = 3, a(3) = 4; delete terms at positions 7 to 10; these are 11,12,13,14;

1,3,4,5,9,10,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,...

n = 4, a(4) = 5; delete terms at positions 9 to 13; these are 17,18,19,20,21;

1,3,4,5,9,10,15,16,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36...

n = 5 a(5) = 9; delete terms at positions 14 to 22; these are 27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35;

1,3,4,5,9,10,15,16,22,23,24,25,26,36,...

f[seq_] := Module[{s = seq, n1, n2}, n++; n1 = s[[n]] + n; If[n1 <= len, n2 = Min[n - 1 + 2*s[[n]], len]; len -= n2 - n1 + 1; Drop[s, {n1, n2}], s]]; n = 0; len = 1000; FixedPoint[f, Range[len]] (* Jean-François Alcover, Sep 29 2011 *)
