A298004 Solution b( ) of the complementary equation a(n) = a(1)*b(n-1) - a(0)*b(n-2) + 3*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. 2

COMMENTS

The increasing complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values.  The solution a( ) is given at A297836.  See A297830 for a guide to related sequences.

Conjecture: 7/10 < a(n) - n*L < 3 for n >= 1, where L = (-1 + sqrt(13))/2.
