Solution of the complementary equation a(n) = a(1)*b(n1)  a(0)*b(n2) + 2*n  1, 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 increasing complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. See A297830 for a guide to related sequences.
Conjecture: a(n)  (2 +sqrt(2))*n < 5/2 for n >= 1.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3, b(1) = 4, so that a(2) = 8.
Complement: (b(n)) = (3,4,5,6,7,9,10,12,13,15,16,18,19,...)


MATHEMATICA

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] + 2 n  1;
j = 1; While[j < 100, k = a[j]  j  1;
While[k < a[j + 1]  j + 1, b[k] = j + k + 2; k++]; j++]; k
