FORMULA

Sum_{m=1..n} 1/m sum_{d | m } mu(d)*2^{m/d}.

MAPLE

with(numtheory):for n from 1 to 113 do sum3 := 0:for m from 1 to n do sum2 := 0:a := divisors(m):for h from 1 to nops(a) do sum2 := sum2+mobius(a[h])*2^(m/a[h]):end do:sum3 := sum3+sum2/m:end do:s[n] := sum3:end do:q := seq(s[j], j=1..113);

PROG

(PARI) a(n)=sum(m=1, n, 1/m* sumdiv(m, d, moebius(d)*2^(m/d) ) ); /* Joerg Arndt, Jul 04 2011 */

CROSSREFS

Partial sums of A001037.

a(n) = A091226(2^(n+1)). Cf. A014580, A091231.

Equals A001036 + 1.
