COMMENTS

The complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values.  See A294476 for a guide to related sequences.

EXAMPLE

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

a(2)  = a(0) + b(1) = 9

Complement: (b(n)) = (2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, ...)

MATHEMATICA

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

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

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

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

Table[a[n], {n, 0, 40}]  (* A294480 *)
