COMMENTS

Rule 3 follows.  For k >= 1, let  A(k) = {a(1), …, a(k)} and D(k) = {d(1), …, d(k)}.  Begin with k = 1 and nonnegative integers a(1) and d(1).

Step 1:   If there is an integer h such that 1 - a(k) < h < 0 and h is not in D(k) and a(k) + h is not in A(k), let d(k+1) be the least such h, let a(k+1) = a(k) + h, replace k by k + 1, and repeat Step 1; otherwise do Step 2.

Step 2:  Let h be the least positive integer not in D(k) such that a(k) - h is not in A(k).  Let a(k+1) = a(k) + h and d(k+1) = h.  Replace k by k+1 and do Step 1.

Conjecture:  suppose that a(1) is an nonnegative integer and d(1) is an integer.

If a(1) = 0 and d(1) != 1, then (a(n)) is a permutation of the nonnegative integers;

if a(1) = 0 and d(1) = 1, then (a(n)) is a permutation of the nonnegative integers excluding 1;

if a(1) = 1, then (a(n)) is a permutation of the positive integers;

if a(1) > 1, then (a(n)) is a permutation of the integers >1;

if d(1) = 0, then (d(n)) is a permutation of the integers;

if d(1) !=0, then (d(n)) is a permutation of the nonzero integers.

FORMULA

a(n) = A258046(n) - 1 for n >= 1.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 0, d(1) = 0;

a(2) = 1, d(2) = 1;

a(3) = 3, d(3) = 2;

a(4) = 2, d(4) = -1.

MATHEMATICA

{a, f} = {{0}, {0}}; Do[tmp = {#, # - Last[a]} &[Min[Complement[#, Intersection[a, #]]&[Last[a] + Complement[#, Intersection[f, #]] &[Range[2 - Last[a], -1]]]]];

If[! IntegerQ[tmp[[1]]], tmp = {Last[a] + #, #} &[NestWhile[# + 1 &, 1, ! (! MemberQ[f, #] && ! MemberQ[a, Last[a] - #]) &]]]; AppendTo[a, tmp[[1]]]; AppendTo[f, tmp[[2]]], {120}]; {a, f} (* Peter J. C. Moses, May 14 2015 *)

(Haskell)
