 A001176 Number of zeros in fundamental period of Fibonacci numbers mod n. (Formerly M0165 N0064) 24

%N Number of zeros in fundamental period of Fibonacci numbers mod n.

%C If the Fibonacci numbers are indexed so that 3 is the fourth number, then if the modulo base is a Fibonacci number (>= 3) with an even index, the period has 2 zeros. If the base is a Fibonacci number (>= 5) with an odd index, the period has 4 zeros. - _Kerry Mitchell_, Dec 11 2005

%C For a proof that A001177(n) divides the period length A001175(n) for n >= 1, see, e.g., the Vajda reference, p. 73. This comment refers to the present first formula. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Jan 19 2015

%F a(n) = A001175(n)/A001177(n) for n >= 1.

%F a(n) = ord(n, fibonacci(A001177(n) + 1)), where ord(n, a) is the multiplicative order of a modulo n. - _Mircea Merca_, Jan 03 2011

%F a(n) = A128924(n,1). - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Jan 17 2014

%F From _Isaac Saffold_, Aug 30 2018: (Start)

%F With the sole exception of a(8) = 2,

%F a(p^k) = 1 if A007814(A001175(p^k)) < 2.

%F a(p^k) = 4 if A007814(A001175(p^k)) = 2.

%F a(p^k) = 2 if A007814(A001175(p^k)) > 2. (End)

%F From _Jianing Song_, Sep 01 2018: (Start)

%F a(2^e) = 1 if e <= 2, otherwise 2. For odd primes p, a(p^e) = 4 if A001177(p) is odd; 1 if A001177(p) is even but not divisible by 4; 2 if A001177(p) is divisible by 4.

%F a(n) = 2 for n == 0, 3, 7, 8, 12, 15 (mod 20). a(p^e) = 1 if primes p == 11, 19 (mod 20); 4 if p == 13, 17 (mod 20). Conjecture: 1/6 of the primes congruent to 1 or 9 mod 40 satisfy a(p^e) = 1, 2/3 of them satisfy a(p^e) = 2 and 1/6 of them satisfy a(p^e) = 4; also, 1/2 of the primes congruent to 21 or 29 mod 40 satisfy a(p^e) = 1 and 1/2 of them satisfy a(p^e) = 4. (End)

%e {F(n) mod 1} has fundamental period (0) with 1 zero.

%e {F(n) mod 2} has fundamental period (0,1,1) with 1 zero.

%e {F(n) mod 3} has fundamental period (0,1,1,2,0,2,2,1) with 2 zeros.

%e {F(n) mod 4} has fundamental period (0,1,1,2,3,1), with 1 zero.

%e {F(n) mod 5} has fundamental period (0,1,1,2,3,0,3,3,1,4,0,4,4,3,2,0,2,2,4,1) with 4 zeros.
