%N Number of odd terms in f^n, where f = (1/x+1+x)*(1/y+1+y)-y/x-x.

%C 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.

%C This is the odd-rule cellular automaton defined by OddRule 367 (see Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger "Odd-Rule Cellular Automata on the Square Grid" link).
