COMMENTS
Algorithm: 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). Let h be the least integer > -a(k) such that h is not in D(k) and 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 repeat inductively.
Conjecture: if a(1) is an nonnegative integer and d(1) is an integer, then (a(n)) is a permutation of the nonnegative integers (if a(1) = 0) or a permutation of the positive integers (if a(1) > 0). Moreover, (d(n)) is a permutation of the integers if d(1) = 0, or of the nonzero integers if d(1) > 0.
