```Hi,
May be this helps:
a1<-c(1:5,1:3,rep(1,2),1:5,1:3)
a1
#  1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 1 1 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3

a1[sort(c(which(c(diff(a1)<0,TRUE)), which(a1[-length(a1)] == a1[-1])))]
# 5 3 1 1 5 3
a2<-c(1:2,rep(1,4),1:7,1:3)
a2
#  1 2 1 1 1 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3
a2[sort(c(which(c(diff(a2)<0,TRUE)), which(a2[-length(a2)] == a2[-1])))]
# 2 1 1 1 1 7 3

a3<-c(c(1,4,5,8),rep(1,3),c(1,8,11,13),1:4)
a3
#   1  4  5  8  1  1  1  1  8 11 13  1  2  3  4
a3[sort(c(which(c(diff(a3)<0,TRUE)), which(a3[-length(a3)] == a3[-1])))]
#  8  1  1  1 13  4

a4<-c(c(1,4,5,8),rep(4,3),c(1,8,11,13),8:12)
a4
#   1  4  5  8  4  4  4  1  8 11 13  8  9 10 11 12
a4[sort(c(which(c(diff(a4)<0,TRUE)), which(a4[-length(a4)] == a4[-1])))]
#  8  4  4  4 13 12
A.K.
