 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Number of primitive irreducible factors of x^(2n+1) - 1 over integers mod 2. There are no primitive irreducible factors for x^(2n)-1 because it always has the same factors as x^n-1. Considering that A000374 also counts the cycles in the map f(x) = 2x mod n, a(n) is also the number of primitive cycles of that mapping. - T. D. Noe, Aug 01 2003 Equals number of irreducible factors of the cyclotomic polynomial Phi(2n+1,x) over Z/2Z. All factors have the same degree. - T. D. Noe, Mar 01 2008 LINKS T. D.
