COMMENTS

This is the number of ON cells in a certain 2-D CA in which the neighborhood of a cell is defined by f, and in which a cell is ON iff there was an odd number of ON cells in the neighborhood at the previous generation.

This is the odd-rule cellular automaton defined by OddRule 575 (see Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger "Odd-Rule Cellular Automata on the Square Grid" link).

Run Length Transform of A246038.

The Run Length Transform of a sequence {S(n), n>=0} is defined to be the sequence {T(n), n>=0} given by T(n) = Product_i S(i), where i runs through the lengths of runs of 1's in the binary expansion of n. E.g. 19 is 10011 in binary, which has two runs of 1's, of lengths 1 and 2. So T(19) = S(1)*S(2). T(0)=1 (the empty product).

EXAMPLE

Here is the neighborhood:

[X, X, X]

[0, X, 0]

[X, X, X]

which contains a(1) = 7 ON cells.

MAPLE

C:=f->subs({x=1, y=1}, f);

# Find number of ON cells in CA for generations 0 thru M defined by rule

# that cell is ON iff number of ON cells in nbd at time n-1 was odd

# where nbd is defined by a polynomial or Laurent series f(x, y).

OddCA:=proc(f, M) global C; local n, a, i, f2, p;

f2:=simplify(expand(f)) mod 2;

a:=[]; p:=1;

for n from 0 to M do a:=[op(a), C(p)]; p:=expand(p*f2) mod 2; od:

lprint([seq(a[i], i=1..nops(a))]);

end;

f:=(1/x+1+x)*(1/y+y)+1 mod 2;

OddCA(f, 70);
