Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

A097560 a(n) = number of terms among {a(1),a(2),a(3),...a(n-1)} which are coprime to n; a(1)=3. 1

COMMENTS

A family of related sequences can be generated using different positive integers for a(1). a(1)=1 gives sequence A096216.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..79.

EXAMPLE

a(8)=4 because among the first seven terms, namely 3,1,1,3,4,2,6, there are 4 terms that are relatively prime to 8 (3,1,1 and 3).

MAPLE

a[1]:=3: for n from 2 to 100 do s:=0: for j from 1 to n-1 do if gcd(a[j], n)=1 then s:=s+1 else s:=s fi od: a[n]:=s: od: seq(a[n], n=1..84); (Emeric Deutsch, Aug 03 2005)

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 3; a[n_] := a[n] = Count[ GCD[ Table[ a[i], {i, n - 1}], n], 1]; Array[a, 79] (from Robert G. Wilson v, Dec 27 2005)
