%N First differences of A160410.

%C The rows of the triangle in A147582 converge to this sequence.

%C Contribution from Omar E. Pol, Mar 28 2011 (Start):

%C a(n) is the number of cells turned "ON" at n-th stage of the cellular automaton of A160410.

%C a(n) is also the number of toothpicks added at n-th stage to the toothpick structure of A160410.

%C (End)
