COMMENTS

The sequence A000364 seems to record the number of points of period n under a map. The number of orbits of length n for this map gives the sequence above.

FORMULA

If a(n) is the n-th term of A000364, then the n-th term is u(n) = (1/n)* Sum_{d|n}\mu(d)a(n/d)

EXAMPLE

u(3) = 20 since the conjectured map whose periodic points are counted by A000364 would have 1 fixed point and 61 points of period 3, so it must have 20 orbits of length 3.
