 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The two ants meet seven times; in that case, the color of the current square is flipped only once. Eventually, both ants build a recurrent highway pattern. - Rémy Sigrist, Jul 28 2019 LINKS Rémy Sigrist, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..20000 Felix Fröhlich, Illustration of iterations 0-50, 2019.
