Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A178850 Lexicographically earliest infinite sequence such that (a(i)-a(j)) mod (a(k)-a(j)) is nonzero whenever i,j,k are disjoint. 0

COMMENTS

First infinite picket-fence sequence: a picket fence extended from any pair in the set encounters no other member of the set.

Terms in this sequence gradually become restricted in increasing moduli. From a(7) on, all terms are == 4 (mod 12).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..37.

EXAMPLE

From the initial 1,3, no further terms can be odd. After 3,6, no further multiples of 3 are possible. After 1,3,6, an 8 would be legal, except that no further extension of the sequence is then possible.
