COMMENTS
a(n) is the size of the set S(n) constructed recursively as follows: Let S(1) = {a,b} and let P(S) be the set of pairs (s,t) where s,t are members of S and s not equal to t. We define S(n+1) as the union of S(n) and P(S(n)). - David M. Cerna, Feb 07 2018

FORMULA
Sum_{n>=0} 1/a(n) = 1.82689305142092757947757234878575... (compare with Sum_{n>=0} 1/A000058(n) = 1).
a(n) ~ c^(2^n), where c = 1.385089248334672909882206535871311526236739234374149506334120193387331772... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 19 2015
Sum_{n>=1} arctan(1/a(n)) = Pi/4. - Carmine Suriano, Apr 07 2015
a(0)=1, a(n+1) = a(n)*(a(n)-1) + 2. - Robert FERREOL, May 05 2020
a(n) = A002065(n) + 1 = (A232806(n) + 1)/2. - Robert FERREOL, May 31 2020
