 A110981 a(n) = the number of aperiodic subsets S of the n-th roots of 1 with zero sum (i.e., there is no r different from 1 such that r*S=S). 5

 OFFSET 1,12 COMMENTS We count these subsets only modulo rotations (multiplication by a nontrivial root of unity). A103314(n) = a(n)*n + 2^n - A001037(n)*n. Note that as soon as a(n)=0, we have simply A103314(n) = 2^n - A001037(n)*n. This makes it especially interesting to study those n for which a(n)=0. Quite surprisingly, it appears that the sequence of such n coincides with A102466. From Max Alekseyev, Jan 31 2008: (Start) Every subset of the set U(n) = { 1=r^0, r^1, ..., r^(n-1) } of the n-th power roots of 1 (where r is a fixed primitive root) defines a binary word w of the length n where the j-th bit is 1 iff the root r^j is included in the subset. If d is the period of w with respect to cyclic rotations (thus d|n) then the periodic part of w uniquely defines some binary Lyndon word of the length d (see A001037). In turn, each binary Lyndon word of the length d, where d
