 A333211 Variation of Van Eck's sequence A181391: a(n+1) = the minimum positive offset m from a(n) such that a(n-m-1)*a(n-m) = a(n-1)*a(n); a(n+1)=0 if no such m exists. Start with a(1) = a(2) = 0. 2

 OFFSET 1,7 COMMENTS After 100 million terms the smallest number not appearing is 179549, while the smallest product of adjacent terms not appearing is 2969. LINKS Scott R. Shannon, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000. Brady Haran and N. J. A. Sloane, Don't Know (the Van Eck Sequence), Numberphile video (2019). EXAMPLE a(3) = 0 as a(1)*a(2) = 0*0 = 0, which has not previously appeared as the product of two adjacent terms. a(4) = 1 as a(2)*a(3) = 0*0 = 0, which equals the product a(1)*a(2), one term back from a(3). a(5) = 1 as a(3)*a(4) = 0*1 = 0, which equals the product a(2)*a(3), one term back from a(3). a(6) = 0 as a(4)*a(5) = 1*1 = 1, which has not previously appeared as the product of two adjacent terms. a(19) = 13 as a(17)*a(18) = 1*1 = 1, which equals the product a(4)*a(5), thirteen terms back from a(18).
