FORMULA

a(n) = (1/30)*(-16+(-4)^n-10*(-1)^n+55*4^n).

From Colin Barker, Oct 08 2015: (Start)

a(n) = 17*a(n-2) - 16*a(n-4) for n>3.

G.f.: -(4*x^3-12*x^2-7*x-1) / ((x-1)*(x+1)*(4*x-1)*(4*x+1)).

(End)

First 8 rows, representing ON cells as "1", OFF cells within the bounds

of ON cells as "0", interpreted as a binary number at left, the decimal

equivalent appearing at right:

                   1 =      1

                 111 =      7
