COMMENTS

This is the number of ON cells in a certain two-dimensional cellular automaton in which the neighborhood of a cell is defined by f, and in which a cell is ON iff there were an odd number of ON cells in the neighborhood at the previous generation.

This is the odd-rule cellular automaton defined by OddRule 277 (see Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger "Odd-Rule Cellular Automata on the Square Grid" link).

EXAMPLE

Here is the neighborhood f:

[0, X, 0]

[X, X, X]

[X, X, X]

which contains a(1) = 7 ON cells.
