%N Integers k for which the base-phi representation of k does not include 1 or phi.

%C Let b = A214970 be the sequence of the integers k for which the base phi representation includes 1, and let c be the sequence of integers k for which the base phi representation includes phi.

%C Note that a, b and c form a complementary triple (since consecutive digits 11 do not occur in a base phi representation).

%C Conjecture (Moses 2012/Baruchel 2018): b is the generalized Beatty sequence b(n) = floor(n*phi) + 2*n + 1.

%C Conjecture (Kimberling 2012): c = A054770 = A000201(n) + 2*n - 1 = floor(n*phi) + 2*n - 1.

%C One can prove that the Moses/Baruchel conjecture and the Kimberling conjecture are equivalent.

%C Conjecture: (a(n)) is a union of two generalized Beatty sequences v and w, given by v(n) = floor(n*phi) + 2*n = A003231(n), and w(n) = 3*floor(n*phi) + n + 1 = A190509(n) + 1.

%C This conjecture is compatible with the Moses/Baruchel/Kimberling conjecture.

%C These three conjectures are proved in my paper 'Base phi representations and golden mean beta-expansions'. - _Michel Dekking_, Jun 26 2019
