COMMENTS

The rows of the triangle in A147582 converge to this sequence.
Contribution from Omar E. Pol, Mar 28 2011 (Start):
a(n) is the number of cells turned "ON" at nth stage of the cellular automaton of A160410.
a(n) is also the number of toothpicks added at nth stage to the toothpick structure of A160410.
