FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Dec 07 2015 and Apr 16 2019: (Start)

a(n) = (-45+5*(-1)^n-(6-i*3)*(-i)^n-(6+3*i)*i^n+7*2^(4+n))/60 where i = sqrt(-1).

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+a(n-4)-2*a(n-5) for n>4.

G.f.: (1+x+x^2) / ((1-x)*(1+x)*(1-2*x)*(1+x^2)).

(End)

EXAMPLE

From Michael De Vlieger, Dec 09 2015: (Start)

First 8 rows at left, ignoring "0" outside of range of 1's, the center column values in parentheses. The center column values up to that row are concatenated then converted into decimal at right:

             Rule 158                   Binary     Decimal

                (1)                 ->         1 =   1

              1 (1) 1               ->        11 =   3

            1 1 (1) 0 1             ->       111 =   7

          1 1 1 (0) 0 1 1           ->      1110 =  14

        1 1 1 0 (1) 1 1 0 1         ->     11101 =  29

      1 1 1 0 0 (1) 1 0 0 1 1       ->    111011 =  59

    1 1 1 0 1 1 (1) 0 1 1 1 0 1     ->   1110111 = 119

  1 1 1 0 0 1 1 (0) 0 1 1 0 0 1 1   ->  11101110 = 238

1 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 (1) 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 -> 111011101 = 477

(End)

f[n_] := Block[{w = {}}, Do[AppendTo[w, Boole[Mod[k, 4] != 3]], {k, 0, n}]; FromDigits[w, 2]]; Table[f@ n, {n, 0, 32}] (* Michael De Vlieger, Dec 09 2015 *)
