COMMENTS

The primes in this sequence give A160216.

Conjecture: Let m>3 belong to A003159. Define the sequence b(n) to be the minimal increasing sequence with b(1)=m and the property that b(n) and n are both in or both not in A003159. Then a(n)=b(n) for all n larger than some m-dependent minimum index.

FORMULA

a(n+1) = min{ m>a(n): A035263(m)=A035263(n+1) }.

a(n)=2n+1, if A007814(n) is even. a(n)=2n+2, if A007814(n) is odd.

A010060(a(n))=1-A010060(n)

For n>=1, A010060(a(n))= A010060(A004760(n+1)). See also A160230. [Vladimir Shevelev, May 05 2009]

EXAMPLE

n=2 is not in A003159. So a(2) is the smallest number larger than a(1)=3 which is not in A003159. This excludes 4 and 5 which are in A003159 and leads to a(2)=6.

MATHEMATICA

a35263[n_] := 1 - Mod[IntegerExponent[n, 2], 2];

a[1] = 3; a[n_] := a[n] = For[k = a[n - 1] + 1, True, k++, If[a35263[k] == a35263[n], Return[k]]];
