FORMULA

From Colin Barker, Jan 14 2016: (Start)

a(n) = (2*n-(-1)^n+5)/4.

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

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

(End)

a(n) = 1 + A110654(n). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 23 2016

MATHEMATICA

rule=70; rows=20; ca=CellularAutomaton[rule, {{1}, 0}, rows-1, {All, All}]; (* Start with single black cell *) catri=Table[Take[ca[[k]], {rows-k+1, rows+k-1}], {k, 1, rows}]; (* Truncated list of each row *) Table[Total[catri[[k]]], {k, 1, rows}] (* Number of Black cells in stage n *)
