FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Dec 16 2015 and Apr 16 2019: (Start)

a(n) = 1/2*(n^2+(-1)^n*n+4*n-(-1)^n+1).

a(n) = 1/2*(n^2+5*n) for n even.

a(n) = 1/2*(n^2+3*n+2) for n odd.

a(n) = a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3) - a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n>4.

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

(End)

EXAMPLE

From Michael De Vlieger, Dec 14 2015: (Start)

First 12 rows, replacing ones with "." for better visibility of OFF cells, followed by the total number of 0's per row, and the running total up to that row:

                      .                        =  0  ->   0

                    0 0 0                      =  3  ->   3

                  0 0 . 0 0                    =  4  ->   7

                . . 0 0 0 . .                  =  3  ->  10

              0 0 0 0 . 0 0 0 0                =  8  ->  18

            . . . . 0 0 0 . . . .              =  3  ->  21

          0 0 0 0 0 0 . 0 0 0 0 0 0            = 12  ->  33

        . . . . . . 0 0 0 . . . . . .          =  3  ->  36

      0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 . 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0        = 16  ->  52

(End)
