LINKS Robert Price, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..999 Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Elementary Cellular Automaton FORMULA Conjectures from Colin Barker, Dec 09 2015 and Apr 16 2019: (Start) a(n) = 1/8*(6*n-3*(-1)^n+(1-i)*(-i)^n+(1+i)*i^n+9) where i = sqrt(-1). a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-4) - a(n-5) for n > 4. G.f.: (1+x+2*x^3-x^4) / ((1-x)^2*(1+x)*(1+x^2)). (End) a(n) = (6*n+9+2*cos(n*Pi/2)-3*cos(n*Pi)-2*sin(n*Pi/2))/8. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 02 2017 EXAMPLE From Michael De Vlieger, Dec 09 2015: (Start) First 12 rows, replacing "0" with ".", ignoring "0" outside of range of 1's for better visibility of ON cells, with total number of 1's in the row to the left of the chart: 1  =   1 2  =   1 1 2  =   1 . 1 4  =   1 1 1 1 4  =   1 1 1 . 1 5  =   1 1 . 1 1 1 5  =   1 . 1 1 1 . 1 7  =   1 1 1 1 . 1 1 1 7  =   1 1 1 . 1 1 1 . 1 8  =   1 1 . 1 1 1 . 1 1 1 8  =   1 . 1 1 1 . 1 1 1 . 1 10 =   1 1 1 1 . 1 1 1 . 1 1 1 10 =   1 1 1 . 1 1 1 . 1 1 1 . 1 (End) MATHEMATICA rule = 188; rows = 30; Table[Total[Table[Take[CellularAutomaton[rule, {{1}, 0}, rows-1, {All, All}][[k]], {rows-k+1, rows+k-1}], {k, 1, rows}][[k]]], {k, 1, rows}] Count[#, n_ /; n == 1] & /@ CellularAutomaton[188, {{1}, 0}, 66] (* Michael De Vlieger, Dec 09 2015 *) CROSSREFS Cf.
