FORMULA
a(n+1)/a(n) -> 1 + sqrt(2).
EXAMPLE
a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3, b(1) = 4
a(2) =2*a(1) + a(0) + b(0) = 8
Complement: (b(n)) = (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, ...)
MATHEMATICA
mex := First[Complement[Range[1, Max[#1] + 1], #1]] &;
a[0] = 1; a[1] = 2; b[0] = 3; b[1] = 4;
a[n_] := a[n] = 2 a[ n - 1] + a[n - 2] + b[n - 2];
b[n_] := b[n] = mex[Flatten[Table[Join[{a[n]}, {a[i], b[i]}], {i, 0, n - 1}]]];
Table[a[n], {n, 0, 18}] (* A295141 *)
Table[b[n], {n, 0, 10}]
