A294862 Solution of the complementary equation a(n) = a(n-2) + b(n-2) + 2, where a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3, and (a(n)) and (b(n)) are increasing complementary sequences. 3

COMMENTS
The increasing complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. See A294860 for a guide to related sequences.

EXAMPLE
a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3
b(1) = 4 (least "new number")
a(2) = a(0) + b(0) + 2 = 6
Complement: (b(n)) = (3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, ...)
MATHEMATICA
mex := First[Complement[Range[1, Max[#1] + 1], #1]] &;
a[0] = 1; a[1] = 2; b[0] = 3;
a[n_] := a[n] = a[n - 2] + b[n - 2] + 2;
b[n_] := b[n] = mex[Flatten[Table[Join[{a[n]}, {a[i], b[i]}], {i, 0, n - 1}]]];
