Sum of GCD's of parts in all compositions of n. - Vladeta Jovovic, Aug 13 2003

From Petros Hadjicostas, Dec 07 2017: (Start)

It also equals the sum of all lengths of all cyclic compositions of n. This was proved in Perez (2008).

The bivariate g.f. for the number b(n,k) of all cyclic of compositions of n with k parts is Sum_{n,k>=1} b(n,k)*x^n*y^k = -Sum_{s>=1} (phi(s)/s)*log(1 - y^s*Sum_{t>=1} x^{s*t}) =  -Sum_{s>=1} (phi(s)/s)*log(1 - y^s*x^s/(1-x^s)). See, for example, Hadjicostas (2016). Differentiating w.r.t. y and setting y = 1, we get Sum_{n>=1} a(n)*x^n = Sum_{n>=1} (Sum_{k=1..n} b(n,k)*k)*x^n = Sum_{s>=1} phi(s)*x^s/(1-2*x^s).

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/2)* Sum_{d|n} phi(d)*2^(n/d), n >= 1.

G.f.: Sum_{s>=1} phi(s)*x^s/(1-2*x^s). - Petros Hadjicostas, Dec 07 2017

a(n) ~ 2^(n-1). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 07 2019

EXAMPLE

For the compositions of n=4 we have a(4) = gcd(4) + gcd(1,3) + gcd(3,1) + gcd(2,2) + gcd(2,1,1) + gcd(1,2,1) + gcd(1,1,2) + gcd(1,1,1,1) = 4 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 12. Also, for cyclic compositions of n=4, we have length(4) + length(1,3) + length(2,2) + length(1,1,2) + length(1,1,1,1) = 1 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 12.
