(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A002823 Number of period-n solutions to a certain "universal" equation related to transformations on the unit interval.
(Formerly M2357 N0933)
1, 1, 3, 4, 9, 14, 27, 48, 93, 163, 315, 576, 1085 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



a(n) <= A000048(n), since the solutions counted here are a subset of the solutions counted by A000048 (called U sequence in the paper). The observed equality for prime n means that there are in this case no harmonics, which would disappear. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 05 2014
