 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS On the infinite square grid we start with no toothpicks. At stage 1, we place a cross as a "X", formed by 4 D-toothpicks of length sqrt(2) and centered at the origin. At stage 2, we place 8 toothpicks of length 1. At stage 3, we place 16 D-toothpicks of length sqrt(2). And so on. The sequence gives the number of toothpicks and D-toothpicks in the structure after n-th stage. The first differences (A194435) give the number of toothpicks or D-toothpicks added at n-th stage. Apparently this cellular automaton has a fractal behavior (or like-fractal behavior) related to power of 2, similar to A194270 and very similar to A194432. The octagonal structure contains a large number of distinct closed polygonal regions. For more information see A194270, A194440 and A194442. First differs from A220514 at a(13). - Omar E.
