COMMENTS

This is the number of ON cells in a certain 2-D 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 odd-rule cellular automaton defined by OddRule 017 (see Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger "Odd-Rule 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 n-1 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}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jul 11 2017 *)
