%F a(n) = (Sum_{d|n}phi(2d)+Sum_{d|n, d odd}phi(d)3^(n/d))/(2n), where phi(n) is the Euler function A000010.

%e For n=3, the 27=3^3 admissible words are separated into 6 shift-equivalence classes (necklaces) containing, resp., the words 000000, 100000, 110000, 101000, 111000 and 101010. Thus a(3)=6.

%t a[n_] := Sum[EulerPhi[2d] + Boole[OddQ[d]] EulerPhi[d] 3^(n/d), {d, Divisors[n]}]/(2n);
