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 mdependent 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))=1A010060(n)
For n>=1, A010060(a(n))= A010060(A004760(n+1)). See also A160230. [From 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.
