Print n terms of Newman-Conway Sequence

Newman-Conway numbers is the one which generates the following integer sequence.
1 1 2 2 3 4 4 4 5 6 7 7….. and follows below recursive formula.

P(n) = P(P(n - 1)) + P(n - P(n - 1))

Given a number n then print n terms of Newman-Conway Sequence

Examples:

Input : 13
Output : 1 1 2 2 3 4 4 4 5 6 7 7 8

Input : 20
Output : 1 1 2 2 3 4 4 4 5 6 7 7 8 8 8 8 9 10 11 12 

C++

// C++ Program to print n terms 
// of Newman-Conway Sequence
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

// Function to find 
// the n-th element
void sequence(int n) 
{
    // Declare array to store sequence
    int f[n + 1];
    f[0] = 0;
    f[1] = 1;
    f[2] = 1;
    
    cout << f[1] << " " << f[2] << " ";
    
    for (int i = 3; i <= n; i++) {
        f[i] = f[f[i - 1]] + f[i - f[i - 1]];        
        cout << f[i] << " ";
    }
}

// Driver Program
int main()
{    
    int n = 13;    
    sequence(n);    
    return 0;
}

Java

// Java Program to print n terms
// of Newman-Conway Sequence

class GFG 
{
    // Function to find 
    // the n-th element
    public static void sequence(int n) 
    {
        // Declare array to store sequence
        int f[] = new int[n + 1];
        
        f[0] = 0;
        f[1] = 1;
        f[2] = 1;
        
        System.out.print( f[1] + " " + f[2] + " ");
        for (int i = 3; i <= n; i++) 
        {
            f[i] = f[f[i - 1]] + f[i - f[i - 1]];     
            System.out.print(f[i] + " ");
        }
    }
    
    //Driver code
    public static void main(String []args)
    {
        int n = 13 ;
        sequence(n);
    }

}
