i was talking to Richard Guy this morning and the following
sequences came up
we want A = a1 a2 a3 a4 ... and B = b1 b2 b3 ...
such that
1. all the terms are nonnegative integers
2. The terms of A are strictly increasing
3. The terms of B are strictly increasing
4. All the numbers |A_i - B_j| are distinct
There are many solutions. One might try looking for
the earliest A in lexicographic order. Or , alternatively,
look for the earliest { A union B}, which is probably better.
Some scribbling suggests that we might end up with
A = 0 1 7 18 35 ...
B = 0 3 12 26 45 ...
Could someone program this up?
