# Catalog of Toothpick and Cellular Automata Sequences in OEIS

## N. J. A. Sloane

### Email: njasloane@gmail.com

The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (or OEIS) contains a large number of sequences connected with the "toothpick problem", associated cellular automata, and related recurrences and generating functions. The following list provides a searchable index to these sequences, as they are on Jan 01 2009.

This is a companion to the paper "The Toothpick Sequence" by David Applegate, Omar E. Pol and N. J. A. Sloane.
