COMMENTS
Watanabe's tag system {00/1011} maps a word w over {0,1} to w', where if w begins with 0, w' is obtained by appending 00 to w and deleting the first three letters, or if w begins with 1, w' is obtained by appending 1011 to w and deleting the first three letters.
The empty word is included in the count.

CROSSREFS
Asveld's Table 1 gives data about the behavior of Post's 3-shift tag system {00/1101} applied to the word (100)^n. The first column gives n, the nonzero values in column 2 give A291792, and columns 3 through 7 give A284119, 291793 (or A284121), A291794, A291795, A291796. For the corresponding data for Watanabe's 3-shift tag system {00/1011} applied to (100)^n see A292089, A292090, A292091, A292092, A292093, A292094.
