%N Dtoothpick sequence starting with a cross formed by 4 toothpicks.
%C On the infinite square grid we start with no toothpicks.
%C At stage 1, we place a cross, centered at the origin, formed by 2 vertical toothpicks and 2 horizontal toothpicks of length 1. At stage 2, we place 8 Dtoothpicks of length sqrt(2). At stage 3, we place 16 toothpicks of length 1. And so on.
%C The sequence gives the number of toothpicks and Dtoothpicks in the structure after nth stage. The first differences (A194433) give the number of toothpicks and Dtoothpicks added at nth stage.
%C Apparently this cellular automaton has a fractal behavior (or likefractal behavior) related to power of 2, similar to A194270 and very similar to A194434. The octagonal structure contains a large number of distinct polygonal shapes. For more information see A194270, A194440 and A194442.
