The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

%N Number of ON cells at generation n in a certain two-dimensional cellular automaton that produces a roughly circular pattern.

%C This is the CA on the square grid, defined by Rule 175850, and started with 7 adjacent ON cells. It is shown on page 177 of Wolfram's A New Kind of Science.
