(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A005864 The coding-theoretic function A(n,4).
(Formerly M1111)
1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 4, 8, 16, 20, 40, 72, 144, 256, 512, 1024, 2048 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Since A(n,3) = A(n+1,4), A(n,3) gives essentially the same sequence.

The next term a(17) is in the range 2816-3276.

Let T_n be the set of SDS-maps of sequential dynamical systems defined over the complete graph K_n in which all vertices have the same vertex function (defined using a set of two possible vertex states). Then a(n) is the maximum number of period-2 orbits that a function in T_n can have. - Colin Defant, Sep 15 2015

Since the n-halved cube graph is isomorphic to (or, if you prefer, defined as) the graph with binary sequences of length n-1 as nodes and edges between pairs of sequences that differ in at most two positions, the independence number of the n-halved cube graph is A(n-1,3) = a(n). - Pontus von Brömssen, Dec 12 2018
