FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Feb 25 2017: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-2) + 10000*a(n-4) - 10000*a(n-6) for n>6.

G.f.: (1 - 9890*x^4 + x^5 + 10989*x^6 - 1000*x^10) / ((1 - x)*(1 + x)*(1 - 10*x)*(1 + 10*x)*(1 + 100*x^2)).

(End)

MATHEMATICA

CAStep[rule_, a_] := Map[rule[[10 - #]] &, ListConvolve[{{0, 2, 0}, {2, 1, 2}, {0, 2, 0}}, a, 2], {2}];

code = 529; stages = 128;

rule = IntegerDigits[code, 2, 10];

g = 2 * stages + 1; (* Maximum size of grid *)

a = PadLeft[{{1}}, {g, g}, 0, Floor[{g, g}/2]]; (* Initial ON cell on grid *)

ca = a;

ca = Table[ca = CAStep[rule, ca], {n, 1, stages + 1}];

PrependTo[ca, a];

(* Trim full grid to reflect growth by one cell at each stage *)

k = (Length[ca[[1]]] + 1)/2;

ca = Table[Table[Part[ca[[n]] [[j]], Range[k + 1 - n, k - 1 + n]], {j, k + 1 - n, k - 1 + n}], {n, 1, k}];

Table[FromDigits[Part[ca[[i]] [[i]], Range[1, i]], 10], {i, 1, stages - 1}]
