COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of ordered pairs (a,b) of length n binary sequences such that a and b are equivalent by rotational symmetry. - Geoffrey Critzer, Dec 31 2011

a(n) is the weighted sum of binary strings of length n by their number of distinct images by rotation. There is a natural correspondence between the first 2^(n-1) sequences (starting by a 0) and the 2^(n-1) starting with a 1 by inversion. There is also an internal correspondance by order inversion. - Olivier Gérard, Jan 01 2011

The number of k-circulant n X n (0,1) matrices, which means the number of n X n binary matrices where rows from the 2nd row on are obtained from the preceding row by a cyclic shift by k columns for some 0 <= k < n.  - R. J. Mathar, Mar 11 2017

FORMULA

For n >= 1, a(n) = Sum_{d|n} A045664(d) = Sum_{d|n} d*A027375(d) = Sum_{d|n} d^2*A001037(d).

EXAMPLE

a(2)= 6 because there are 6 such ordered pairs of length 2 binary sequences: (00,00),(11,11),(01,01),(10,10),(01,10),(10,01).

a(3)= 20 because the classes of 3-bit strings are 1*(000), 3*(001,010,100), 3*(011,110,101), 1*(111) = 1 + 9 + 9 + 1.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := 2*Plus @@ Table[ Length[ Union[ NestList[ RotateLeft, IntegerDigits[b, 2, n], n - 1]]], {b, 0, 2^(n - 1) - 1}]; f[0] = 1; Array[f, 21, 0] (* Olivier Gérard, Jan 01 2012 *)
