COMMENTS

An integer can't appear more than twice in the sequence, which means the sequence tends to infinity.

An increasing version of this sequence is A236336.

a(n) - 1 = A236266(n-1). - Alois P. Heinz, Jan 23 2014

EXAMPLE

Consider a(5). The previous terms are 1,1,2,2. The value of a(5) can't be 1 because points (1,1),(2,1),(5,1) (corresponding to values a(1), a(2), a(5)) are on the same line: y=1. Points (3,2),(4,2),(5,2) are on the same line y=2, so a(5) can't be 2. Points (1,1),(3,2),(5,3) are on the same line: y=x/2+1/2, so a(5) can't be 3. Points (2,1),(3,2),(5,4) are on the same line: y=x-1, so a(5) can't be 4. Thus a(5)=5.
