%C The natural number n appears a(n)-a(n-1) times in A094606.

%C The number of contiguous black or ON cells, rightmost or otherwise, includes the terms {10, 11}. Row 42 contains 10 contiguous ON cells right of center, row 45 contains 11 contiguous ON cells left of center. Are these the only instances of contiguous ON cells that set records that are not rightmost? - _Michael De Vlieger_, Oct 06 2015

%e From _Michael De Vlieger_, Oct 06 2015: (Start)

%e First 12 rows, replacing "0" with ".", ignoring "0" outside of range of

%e 1's, for better visibility of ON cells, the number of contiguous

%e rightmost ON cells of each row appears at left:

%e 1 1

%e 3 1 1 1

%e 1 1 1 . . 1

%e 4 1 1 . 1 1 1 1

%e 1 1 1 . . 1 . . . 1

%e 3 1 1 . 1 1 1 1 . 1 1 1

%e 1 1 1 . . 1 . . . . 1 . . 1

%e 6 1 1 . 1 1 1 1 . . 1 1 1 1 1 1

%e 1 1 1 . . 1 . . . 1 1 1 . . . . . 1

%e 3 1 1 . 1 1 1 1 . 1 1 . . 1 . . . 1 1 1

%e 1 1 1 . . 1 . . . . 1 . 1 1 1 1 . 1 1 . . 1

%e 4 1 1 . 1 1 1 1 . . 1 1 . 1 . . . . 1 . 1 1 1 1

%e 1 1 1 . . 1 . . . 1 1 1 . . 1 1 . . 1 1 . 1 . . . 1

%e Thus the sequence starts with {1, 3, 4, 6, ...} as these set new records for the number of contiguous rightmost ON cells in each row.
