COMMENTS

This is the number of ON cells in a certain two-dimensional cellular automaton in which the neighborhood of a cell is defined by f, and in which a cell is ON iff there were an odd number of ON cells in the neighborhood at the previous generation.

This is the odd-rule cellular automaton defined by OddRule 347 (see Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger "Odd-Rule Cellular Automata on the Square Grid" link).

FORMULA

This is the Run Length Transform of A253101.

EXAMPLE

Here is the neighborhood f:

[X, 0, X]

[X, 0, X]

[X, X, 0]

which contains a(1) = 6 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*y)+1/x+1/x*y+1/y+x+x*y;

OddCA(f, 130);

MATHEMATICA

(* f = A253101 *) f[n_] :=  2*(2-Sqrt[3])^n + 2*(2+Sqrt[3])^n - 2^n // Round; Table[Times @@ (f[Length[#]]&) /@ Select[Split[IntegerDigits[n, 2]], #[[1]] == 1&], {n, 0, 63}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jul 12 2017 *)
