Solution (a(n)) of the nearcomplementary equation a(n) = a(1)*b(n1)  a(0)*b(n2) + n, where a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3, b(1) = 4, and (b(n)) is the increasing sequence of positive integers not in (a(n)). See Comments.

COMMENTS

The sequence (a(n)) generated by the equation a(n) = a(1)*b(n1)  a(0)*b(n2) + n, with initial values as shown, includes duplicates; e.g. a(18) = a(19) = 51. If the duplicates are removed from (a(n)), the resulting sequence and (b(n)) are complementary. Conjectures:
(1) 0 <= a(k)  a(k1) <= 6 for k>=1;
(2) if d is in {0,1,2,3,4,5,6}, then a(k) = a(k1) + d for infinitely many k.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3, b(1) = 4, so that a(2) = 7.
Complement: (b(n)) = (3, 4, 5, 6, 8,10,12,13,14,16, ...)


MATHEMATICA

mex[list_, start_] := (NestWhile[# + 1 &, start, MemberQ[list, #] &]);
tbl = {}; a[0] = 1; a[1] = 2; b[0] = 3; b[1] = 4;
a[n_] := a[n] = a[1]*b[n  1]  a[0]*b[n  2] + n;
b[n_] := b[n] = mex[tbl = Join[{a[n], a[n  1], b[n  1]}, tbl], b[n  1]];
