COMMENTS

From Omar E. Pol, Apr 26 2020: (Start)

The cellular automaton described in A220520 has word "ab", so the structure of this triangle is as follows:

a,b;

a,b;

a,b,a,b;

a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b;

a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b;

...

The row lengths are the terms of A011782 multiplied by 2, equaling the column 2 of the square array A296612: 2, 2, 4, 8, 16, ...

This arrangement has the property that the odd-indexed columns (a) contain numbers of the toothpicks of length 1, and the even-indexed columns (b) contain numbers of the D-toothpicks.

For further information about the "word" of a cellular automaton see A296612. (End)
