COMMENTS

The complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. The initial values of each sequence in the following guide are a(0) = 1, a(2) = 3, b(0) = 2, b(1) = 4:

A293358:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1)

A293406:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) + 1

A293765:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) + 2

A293766:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) + 3

A293767:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) - 1

A294365:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) + n

A294366:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) + 2n

A294367:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) + n - 1

A294368:  a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n-1) + n + 1

Conjecture: a(n)/a(n-1) -> (1 + sqrt(5))/2, the golden ratio.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 3, b(0) = 2, b(1) = 4, so that

a(2) = a(1) + a(0) + b(1) = 8;

Complement: (b(n)) = (2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, ...)

MATHEMATICA

mex := First[Complement[Range[1, Max[#1] + 1], #1]] &;

a[0] = 1; a[1] = 3; b[0] = 2; b[1] = 4;

a[n_] := a[n] = a[n - 1] + a[n - 2] + b[n - 1];

b[n_] := b[n] = mex[Flatten[Table[Join[{a[n]}, {a[i], b[i]}], {i, 0, n - 1}]]];
