COMMENTS

First differs from A169707 at a(28).

Compare A169707. It appears that both sequences share infinitely many terms, for example: a(1)..a(27), a(31)..a(43), a(47)..a(51), etc.

See also the conjecture in the Example section.

The main entry for this sequence is A256263.

A256261 gives the number of cells turned ON at n-th stage.

FORMULA

a(n) = 1 + 4*A256264(n-1).

EXAMPLE

Written as an irregular triangle T(j,k), k>=1, in which the row lengths are the terms of A011782, the sequence begins:

1;

5;

9,   21;

25,  37, 57, 85;

89, 101,121,149,169,213,281,341;

345,357,377,405,425,469,537,597,617,661,729,821,937,1077,1241,1365;

...

The right border gives the positive terms of A002450.

It appears that this triangle at least shares with the triangles from the following sequences; A147562, A162795, A169707, A255366, A256250, the positive elements of the columns k, if k is a power of 2.

CROSSREFS

Sequence in context: A255366 A269522 A169707 * A256250 A256138 A246335
