# Mian–Chowla sequence

## From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In mathematics, the Mian–Chowla sequence is an integer sequence defined recursively in the following way. The sequence starts with

${\displaystyle a_{1}=1.}$

Then for ${\displaystyle n>1}$, ${\displaystyle a_{n}}$ is the smallest integer such that every pairwise sum

${\displaystyle a_{i}+a_{j}}$

is distinct, for all ${\displaystyle i}$ and ${\displaystyle j}$ less than or equal to ${\displaystyle n}$.

## Properties

Initially, with ${\displaystyle a_{1}}$, there is only one pairwise sum, 1 + 1 = 2. The next term in the sequence, ${\displaystyle a_{2}}$, is 2 since the pairwise sums then are 2, 3 and 4, i.e., they are distinct. Then, ${\displaystyle a_{3}}$ can't be 3 because there would be the non-distinct pairwise sums 1 + 3 = 2 + 2 = 4. We find then that ${\displaystyle a_{3}=4}$, with the pairwise sums being 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8. The sequence thus begins

1, 2, 4, 8, 13, 21, 31, 45, 66, 81, 97, 123, 148, 182, 204, 252, 290, 361, 401, 475, ... (sequence A005282 in the OEIS).

## Similar sequences

If we define ${\displaystyle a_{1}=0}$, the resulting sequence is the same except each term is one less (that is, 0, 1, 3, 7, 12, 20, 30, 44, 65, 80, 96, ... ).

## History

The sequence was invented by Abdul Majid Mian and Sarvadaman Chowla.
