COMMENTS

From Omar E. Pol, Apr 26 2020: (Start)
The cellular automaton described in A220520 has word "ab", so the structure of this triangle is as follows:
a,b;
a,b;
a,b,a,b;
a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b;
a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b,a,b;
...
The row lengths are the terms of A011782 multiplied by 2, equaling the column 2 of the square array A296612: 2, 2, 4, 8, 16, ...
This arrangement has the property that the oddindexed columns (a) contain numbers of the toothpicks of length 1, and the evenindexed columns (b) contain numbers of the Dtoothpicks.
For further information about the "word" of a cellular automaton see A296612. (End)
