COMMENTS

Also the coordination sequence for a point of degree 4 in the tiling of the Euclidean plane by right triangles (with angles Pi/2, Pi/4, Pi/4). These triangles are fundamental regions for the Coxeter group (2,4,4). In the notation of Conway et al. 2008 this is the tiling *442. The coordination sequence for a point of degree 8 is given by A022144. - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 28 2015

First differences of number of active (ON,black) cells in n-th stage of growth of two-dimensional cellular automaton defined by "Rule 899", based on the 5-celled von Neumann neighborhood. Initialized with a single black (ON) cell at stage zero. - Robert Price, May 28 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = A022144(n), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Jan 11 2014

From Colin Barker, Jul 10 2015: (Start)

a(n) = 8*n, n>1.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2) for n>3.

G.f.: -(4*x^3-9*x^2-2*x-1) / (x-1)^2.
