COMMENTS

The number of distinct linear fractional transformations of order n. Also the halftotient function can be used to construct a tree containing all the integers. On the zeroth rank we have just the integers 1 and 2 : immediate "ancestors" of 1 and 2 are (1: 3,4,6 2: 5,8,10,12) etc.  Benoit Cloitre, Jun 03 2002
Moebius transform of floor(n/2).  Paul Barry, Mar 20 2005
Also number of different kinds of regular ngons, one convex, the others selfintersecting.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 20 2005
From Artur Jasinski, Oct 28 2008: (Start)
Degrees of minimal polynomials of cos(2*Pi/n). The first few are
1: x  1
2: x + 1
3: 2*x + 1
4: x
5: 4*x^2 + 2*x  1
6: 2*x  1
7: 8*x^3 + 4*x^2  4*x  1
8: 2*x^2  1
9: 8*x^3  6*x + 1
10: 4*x^2  2*x  1
11: 32*x^5 + 16*x^4  32*x^3  12*x^2 + 6*x + 1
These polynomials have solvable Galois groups, so their roots can be expressed by radicals. (End)
a(n) is the number of rationals p/q in the interval [0,1] such that p + q = n.  Geoffrey Critzer, Oct 10 2011.
It appears that, for n > 2, a(n) = A023896(n)/n. Also, it appears that a record occurs at n > 2 in this sequence if and only if n is a prime. For example, records occur at n=5, 7, 11, 13, 17,..., all of which are prime. [John W. Layman, Mar 26 2012]
From Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 19 2013: (Start)
a(n) is the degree of the algebraic number of s(n)^2 = (2*sin(Pi/n))^2, starting at a(1)=1. s(n) = 2*sin(Pi/n) is the length ratio side/R for a regular ngon inscribed in a circle of radius R (in some length units). For the coefficient table of the minimal polynomials of s(n)^2 see A232633.
Because for even n, s(n)^2 lives in the algebraic number field Q(rho(n/2)), with rho(k) = 2*cos(Pi/k), the degree is a(2*l)=A055034(l). For odd n, s(n)^2 is an integer in Q(rho(n)), and the degree is a(2*l+1) = A055034(2*l+1) = phi(2*l+1)/2, l>=1, with Euler's totient phi=A000010 and a(1)=1. See also A232631A232633.
(End)
Also for n>2: number of fractions A182972(k)/A182973(k) such that A182972(k)+A182973(k)=n, A182972(n) and A182973(n) provide an enumeration of positive rationals < 1 arranged by increasing sum of numerator and denominator then by increasing numerator.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 30 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = phi(n)/2 for n >= 3.
a(n) = Sum(k/n: 1<=k<n and GCD(n, k)=1) = A023896(n)/n for n>2.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 20 2005


EXAMPLE

a(15)=4 because there are 4 partitions of 15 into two parts that are relatively prime: 14 + 1, 13 + 2, 11 + 4, 8 + 7.  Geoffrey Critzer, Jan 25 2015
