COMMENTS

Also, replace the Y-toothpick with the "three-diamonds" symbol, so we have a new cellular automaton in which a(n) counts the total number of diamonds in the structure after the n-th stage, A160120 also gives the total number of "three-diamonds" symbols after the n-th stage, and A253770 gives the total number of triangular ON cells after the n-th stage. - Omar E. Pol, Feb 10 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = 3*A160120(n).

a(n) = 3*A160157(n)/2 = A253770(n)/2. - Omar E. Pol, Feb 10 2015

EXAMPLE

From Omar E. Pol, Feb 10 2015: (Start)

After one generation, also, the cellular automaton looks like a star or a flower with three petals as shown below:

.

.        /\

.       _\/_

.      /_/\_\

.

There are six ON cells and three diamonds, so a(1) = 3.
