COMMENTS

Also 2nbead balanced binary necklaces of fundamental period 2n that are equivalent to their complements.
Also binary Lyndon words of length n with an odd number of 1's (for n>=1).
Also number of binary irreducible polynomials of degree n having trace 1.
Also number of binary irreducible polynomials of degree n having linear coefficient 1 (this is the same as the trace1 condition, as the reciprocal of an irreducible polynomial is again irreducible).
Also number of binary irreducible selfreciprocal polynomials of degree 2*n; there is no such polynomial for odd degree except for x+1.
Also number of binary vectors (x_1,...x_n) satisfying Sum_{i=1..n} i*x_i = 1 (mod n+1) = size of VarshamovTenengolts code VT_1(n).
Also the number of dynamical cycles of period 2n of a threshold Boolean automata network which is a quasiminimal negative circuit of size nq where q is odd and which is updated in parallel.  Mathilde Noual (mathilde.noual(AT)enslyon.fr), Mar 03 2009
Also the number of 3elements orbits of the symmetric group S3 action on irreducible polynomials of degree 2n, n>1, over GF(2).  Jean Francis Michon, Philippe Ravache (philippe.ravache(AT)univrouen.fr), Oct 04 2009
Conjecture: Also the number of calibern cycles of Zagierreduced indefinite binary quadratic forms with sum invariant equal to s, where (s1)/n is an odd integer.  Barry R. Smith, Dec 14 2014
The Metropolis, Stein, Stein (1973) reference on page 31 Table II lists a(k) for k = 2 to 15 and is actually for sequence A056303 since there a(k) = 0 for k<2.  Michael Somos, Dec 20 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/(2*n)) * Sum_{odd d divides n} mu(d)*2^(n/d), where mu is the Mobius function A008683.
a(n) = A056303(n) for all integer n>=2.  Michael Somos, Dec 20 2014
Sum_{k dividing m for which m/k is odd} k*a(k) = 2^(m1). (This explains the observation that the sequence is very close to A006788. Unless m has some nontrivial odd divisors that are small relative to m, the term m*a(m) will dominate the sum. Thus, we see for instance that a(n) = A006788(n) when n has one of the forms 2^m or 2^m*p where p is an odd prime with a(2^m) < p.)  Barry R. Smith, Oct 24 2015


EXAMPLE

a(5) = 3 corresponding to the necklaces 00001, 00111, 01011.
a(6) = 5 from 000001, 000011, 000101, 000111, 001011.


MAPLE
