[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 It appears that a(n) = A160164(n) - A169707(n). - Omar E. Pol, Feb 17 2015 EXAMPLE When written as a triangle: 1 1, 5; 1, 5, 9, 13; 1, 5, 9, 13, 9, 21, 33, 29; ... Rows sums are A006516 (this is immediate from the definition). From Omar E. Pol, Feb 17 2015: (Start) Also, written as an irregular triangle in which the row lengths are the terms of A011782: 1; 1; 5,1; 5,9,13,1; 5,9,13,9,21,33,29,1; 5,9,13,9,21,33,29,9,21,33,37,41,77,97,61,1; 5,9,13,9,21,33,29,9,21,33,37,41,77,97,61,9,21,33,37,41,77,97,69,41,77,105,117,161,253,257,125,1; Row sums give 1 together with the positive terms of A006516. It appears that the right border (A000012) gives the smallest difference between A160164 and A169707 in every period. (End) CROSSREFS Cf. A006516, A139250, A139251, A160164, A160552, A169707.
