 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS It appears that a(2^k) = 1, for k >= 0. [From Omar E. Pol, Feb 22 2010] LINKS Nathaniel Johnston, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..94 David Applegate, Omar E. Pol and N. J. A. Sloane, The Toothpick Sequence and Other Sequences from Cellular Automata, Congressus Numerantium, Vol. 206 (2010), 157-191. [There is a typo in Theorem 6: (13) should read u(n) = 4.3^(wt(n-1)-1) for n >= 2.] N. J. A. Sloane, Catalog of Toothpick and Cellular Automata Sequences in the OEIS FORMULA a(n) = A162796(n) - A162795(n). EXAMPLE Contribution from Omar E. Pol, Feb 22 2010: (Start) If written as a triangle: 1; 1,5; 1,5,5,17; 1,5,5,17,5,17,21,49; 1,5,5,17,5,17,21,49,5,17,21,49,21,53,81,129; 1,5,5,17,5,17,21,49,5,17,21,49,21,53,81,129,5,17,21... Rows converge to A173464. (End) Contribution from Omar E. Pol, Apr 01 2011 (Start): It appears that the final terms of rows give A000337. It appears that row sums give A006516. (End) CROSSREFS Cf.
