%C From _Petros Hadjicostas_, Dec 06 2017: (Start)

%C The g.f. is clear from J. Arndt's PARI program below.

%C The CIK transform of sequence (a(n): n>=1} with g.f. A(x) = Sum_{n>=1} a(n)*x^n has g.f. CIK(A(x)) = 1 - Sum_{n>=1} (phi(n)/n)*log(1-A(x^n)). Sometimes, the constant 1 is dropped from the formula. Here, A(x) = 2*x/(1-2*x).

%C To find the auxiliary sequence (c(n): n>=1} used in the formula a(n) = (1/n)*Sum_{d|n} phi(n/d)*c(d), we use the formula C(x) = Sum_{n>=1} c(n)*x^n = x*(dA(x)/dx)/(1-A(x)). Here, C(x) = 2*x/((1-4*x)*(1-2*x)), from which we can prove that c(n) = 2^n*(2^n-1) = A020522(n).
