 A187212 Q-toothpick sequence in the first quadrant. 7

 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS At stage 0, we start with no Q-toothpicks. At stage 1, we place a Q-toothpick centered at (1,0) with its endpoints at (0,0) and (1,1). At stage 2, we place two Q-toothpicks. The sequence gives the number of Q-toothpicks in the structure after n-th stage. For more information see A187210. A187213 gives the number of Q-toothpicks added at n-th stage. Note that starting from (0,1), with the first Q-toothpick centered at (1,1), we have the toothpick sequence A139250. Also, gullwing sequence on the semi-infinite square grid, since a "gull" is formed by two Q-toothpicks. The sequence gives the number of "gulls" (or G-toothpicks) in the structure after n-th stage.
