Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Apr 23 2017: (Start)

G.f.: (1 - x^2 + 10*x^4) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 10*x^2)).

a(n) = 10*(10^(n/2) - 1)/9 for n>1 and even.

a(n) = (10^((n+1)/2) - 10)/9 for n>1 and odd.

a(n) = a(n-1) + 10*a(n-2) - 10*a(n-3) for n>2.

(End)

MATHEMATICA

CAStep[rule_, a_] := Map[rule[[10 - #]] &, ListConvolve[{{0, 2, 0}, {2, 1, 2}, {0, 2, 0}}, a, 2], {2}];

code = 62; stages = 128;

rule = IntegerDigits[code, 2, 10];

g = 2 * stages + 1; (* Maximum size of grid *)

a = PadLeft[{{1}}, {g, g}, 0, Floor[{g, g}/2]]; (* Initial ON cell on grid *)

ca = a;

(* Trim full grid to reflect growth by one cell at each stage *)

k = (Length[ca[[1]]] + 1)/2;

ca = Table[Table[Part[ca[[n]] [[j]], Range[k + 1 - n, k - 1 + n]], {j, k + 1 - n, k - 1 + n}], {n, 1, k}];
