A298296 Solution b( ) of the complementary equation a(n) = a(0)*b(n) + a(1)*b(n-1), where a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3, b(1) = 4, b(2) = 5, and (b(n)) is the increasing sequence of positive integers not in (a(n)). See Comments. 4

COMMENTS

The increasing complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values; b(n)-b(n-1) is in {1,2} for all n >= 1.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, b(0) = 3, b(1) = 4, b(2) = 5, so that a(2) = 13.

Complement: (3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,14,15,17,...) = (b(n)).

MATHEMATICA

mex[list_, start_] := (NestWhile[# + 1 &, start, MemberQ[list, #] &]);

a[0] = 1; a[1] = 2; b[0] = 3; b[1] = 4; b[2] = 5;

a[n_] := a[0]*b[n] + a[1]*b[n - 1]

Table[{a[n], b[n + 1] = mex[Flatten[Map[{a[#], b[#]} &, Range[0, n]]], b[n - 0]]}, {n, 2, 1010}];

Table[a[n], {n, 0, 150}]  (* A298295 *)

Table[b[n], {n, 0, 150}]  (* A298296 *)
