A308293 Lexicographically earliest sequence of positive terms such that a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2, and for any n > 0, (abs(a(n+2)-a(n)), abs(a(n+2)-a(n+1))) is unique. 1

COMMENTS

This sequence shows chaotic behavior (see scatterplot in Links section).

This behavior is determined by the choice of the two leading terms.

The variant, say b, with b(1) = b(2) = 1, corresponds to the natural numbers interspersed with pairs of ones: 1,1,1, 2,1,1, 3,1,1, etc. (b(n) = abs(A157128(n))).

EXAMPLE

The first terms, alongside (abs(a(n+2)-a(n)), abs(a(n+2)-a(n+1))), are:

  n   a(n)  (abs(a(n+2)-a(n)),abs(a(n+2)-a(n+1)))
