COMMENTS

Similar to A139250, except that when we add toothpicks to horizontal toothpicks, we only add them at the lefthand end.
Sequence gives total number of toothpicks in the nth generation. First differences are in A060632.
This is equivalent to the Sierpinski triangle A047999. Each inverted T formed by two toothpicks is equivalent to a triangle in the Sierpinski sieve. See Gould's sequence A001316. [From Omar E. Pol, May 23 2009]

FORMULA

a(2n) = 2*A006046(n), a(2n+1) = a(2n) + A001316(n) = 2*A006046(n) + A001316(n).
