Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

COMMENTS

Similar to A139250, except that when we add toothpicks to horizontal toothpicks, we only add them at the left-hand end.

Sequence gives total number of toothpicks in the n-th generation. First differences are in A060632.

This is equivalent to the Sierpinski triangle A047999. Each inverted T formed by two toothpicks is equivalent to a triangle in the Sierpinski sieve. See Gould's sequence A001316. [From Omar E. Pol, May 23 2009]

FORMULA

a(2n) = 2*A006046(n), a(2n+1) = a(2n) + A001316(n) = 2*A006046(n) + A001316(n).

CROSSREFS
