 Hints (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. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..21. 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].
