COMMENTS
Essentially the first differences of A173460.
It appears that row lengths give the absolute values of A110164. - Omar E. Pol, Apr 25 2013

David Applegate, Omar E. Pol and N. J. A. Sloane, The Toothpick Sequence and Other Sequences from Cellular Automata, Congressus Numerantium, Vol. 206 (2010), 157-191. [There is a typo in Theorem 6: (13) should read u(n) = 4.3^(wt(n-1)-1) for n >= 2.]
FORMULA
a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=8, for n>=3 let i=n/3+1, j=A147610(i), if 2^r==i for some r then let c1=2^(r+1), c2=2^(r+4) else let c1=c2=0, finally when (n MOD 3)=0,1,2 let a(n)=12*j, 12*j-c1, 84*j-c2. (Found empirically) [Lars Blomberg, Apr 23 2013]
EXAMPLE
From Omar E. Pol, Apr 25 2013: (Start)
When written as an irregular triangle begins:
0;
1,8;
12,8,52;
12,12,84,36,28,188;
12,12,84,36,36,252,36,36,252,108,92,628;
12,12,84,36,36,252,36,36,252,108,108,756,36,36,252,108,108,756,108,108,756,324,292,2012;
12,12,84,36,36,252,36,36,252,108,108,...
