 A297834 Solution of the complementary equation a(n) = a(1)*b(n-1) - a(0)*b(n-2) + 2*n - 4, 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

%N Solution of the complementary equation a(n) = a(1)*b(n-1) - a(0)*b(n-2) + 2*n - 4, 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.

%C 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.

%C Conjecture: -3 < a(n) - (2 +sqrt(2))*n <= 1 for n >= 1.
