COMMENTS

Equivalently, numbers k whose exponent of the highest power of 3 dividing k and exponent of the highest power of 4 dividing k have the same parity. The asymptotic density of this sequence is 13/20.  Amiram Eldar, Sep 20 2020

EXAMPLE

The sequence necessarily starts with 1. The next 2 terms are determined as follows: because a(1) = 1, the numbers 3 and 4 are disallowed, so that a(2) = 2, whence the numbers 6 and 8 are disallowed, and a(3) = 5. See A325417 for a guide to related sequences.
