(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A282166 a(n) is the minimal sum of a positive integer sequence of length n with no duplicate substrings of length greater than 1, and every number different from its neighbors. 4
1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 22, 24, 28, 30, 35, 37, 42, 44, 49, 51, 56, 59 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET
1,2
COMMENTS
For example, [1,1] is not a valid sequence because 1 is self-adjacent; [1,2,3,1,2] is not valid because the substring [1,2] appears twice.

EXAMPLE
a(1) = 1 via [1];
a(2) = 3 via [1,2];
a(3) = 4 via [1,2,1];
a(4) = 7 via [1,2,1,3];
a(5) = 8 via [1,2,1,3,1];
a(6) = 12 via [1,2,1,3,1,4];
a(7) = 13 via [1,2,1,3,1,4,1];
a(8) = 17 via [1,2,1,3,1,4,2,3];
a(9) = 18 via [1,2,1,3,2,3,1,4,1];
a(10) = 22 via [1,2,1,3,1,4,2,3,4,1];
a(11) = 24 via [1,2,1,3,2,3,1,4,1,5,1].
