 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The increasing complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. See A295053 for a guide to related sequences. The sequence a(n+1)/a(n) appears to have two convergent subsequences, with limits 1.09... and 2.09... . LINKS Clark Kimberling, Complementary equations, J. Int. Seq. 19 (2007), 1-13.
