COMMENTS

This is the number of ON cells in a certain 2D CA in which the neighborhood of a cell is defined by f, and in which a cell is ON iff there was an odd number of ON cells in the neighborhood at the previous generation.
This is the oddrule cellular automaton defined by OddRule 017 (see EkhadSloaneZeilberger "OddRule Cellular Automata on the Square Grid" link).  N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 25 2015

FORMULA

This is the Run Length Transform of A087206.


EXAMPLE

Here is the neighborhood f:
[0, X, 0]
[X, X, X]
which contains a(1) = 4 ON cells.


MAPLE

C:=f>subs({x=1, y=1}, f);
# Find number of ON cells in CA for generations 0 thru M defined by rule
# that cell is ON iff number of ON cells in nbd at time n1 was odd
# where nbd is defined by a polynomial or Laurent series f(x, y).
OddCA:=proc(f, M) global C; local n, a, i, f2, p;
f2:=simplify(expand(f)) mod 2;
a:=[]; p:=1;
for n from 0 to M do a:=[op(a), C(p)]; p:=expand(p*f2) mod 2; od:
lprint([seq(a[i], i=1..nops(a))]);
end;
f:=1/x+1+x+y;
OddCA(f, 130);


MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := 2^n*Fibonacci[n+2]; Table[Times @@ (f[Length[#]]&) /@ Select[ Split[ IntegerDigits[n, 2]], #[[1]] == 1&], {n, 0, 62}] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Jul 11 2017 *)
