Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

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 60-degree wedge (including the two bounding edges). 13

FORMULA

a(n) = A170898(n-2) + 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.
