A170905


Consider the hexagonal cellular automaton defined in A151723, A151724; a(n) = number of cells that go from OFF to ON at stage n, if we only look at a 60degree wedge (including the two bounding edges).

FORMULA

a(n) = A170898(n2) + 1 for n >= 2.
a(n) = 2*A169778(n) for n != 1.


EXAMPLE

From Omar E. Pol, Feb 12 2013: (Start)
When written as a triangle starting from 1, the right border gives A000079 and row lengths give A011782.
