%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Aug 12 2017: (Start)

%F G.f.: (1 - 2*x + 4*x^2 + 2*x^3 - 28*x^4 + 72*x^5 - 48*x^6) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)).

%F a(n) = 2^(1+n) - 1 for n>4.

%F a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) for n>6.

%F (End)

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

%t code = 969; stages = 128;

%t rule = IntegerDigits[code, 2, 10];

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

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

%t ca = a;

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

%t PrependTo[ca, a];

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

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

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

%t Table[FromDigits[Part[ca[[i]] [[i]], Range[i, 2 * i - 1]], 10], {i, 1, stages - 1}]
