A297831 Solution of the complementary equation a(n) = a(1)*b(n-1) - a(0)*b(n-2) + 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. 3

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
