A006447


Consider a 2D cellular automaton generated by the SchrandtUlam rule of A170896, but confined to a semiinfinite strip of width n, starting with one ON cell at the top left corner; a(n) is the period of the resulting structure.

COMMENTS

Schrandt and Ulam remark that there seems to be no simple relation between n and a(n).
The original report included two further terms, but they were omitted from the published version, so are presumably unreliable.
