Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

a(2^n) is 1, 5, 5, 5, 5, ... a(2^n+1) is 5, 1, 17, 17, 17, ... a(2(2^n+1)) is 5, 85, 85, 85, ... a(2^n)a(2^n+1) is 5, 5, 85, 85, 85, ...

Also, decimal representation of the x-axis, from the origin to the right edge, of the n-th stage of growth of the two-dimensional cellular automaton defined by "Rule 4", based on the 5-celled von Neumann neighborhood. Initialized with a single black (ON) cell at stage zero. - Robert Price, Nov 03 2016
