COMMENTS

Initialized with a single black (ON) cell at stage zero.

Appears to be essentially the same as A277926. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 09 2016

FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Nov 04 2016: (Start)

a(n) = 0 for n>1 and even.

a(n) = (10^(n+1)-1)/9 for n>1 and odd.

a(n) = 101*a(n-2)-100*a(n-4) for n>5.

G.f.: (1+x-101*x^2+1010*x^3+100*x^4-1000*x^5) / ((1-x)*(1+x)*(1-10*x)*(1+10*x)).
