 OFFSET 0,2 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 171 (see Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger "Odd-Rule Cellular Automata on the Square Grid" link). LINKS Alois P.
