A136704 Number of Lyndon words on {1,2,3} with an odd number of 1's and an odd number of 2's. 3

1) This sequence is also the number of Lyndon words on {1,2,3} with an even number of 1's and an odd number of 2's except that a(1)=1 in this case. 2) Also, a Lyndon word is the aperiodic necklace representative which is lexicographically earliest among its cyclic shifts. Thus we can apply the fixed density formulas: L_k(n,d)=sum L(n-d, n_1,..., n_(k-1)); n_1+...+n_(k-1)=d where L(n_0, n_1,...,n_(k-1))=(1/n)sum mu(j)*[(n/j)!/((n_0/j)!(n_1/j)!...(n_(k-1)/j)!)]; j|gcd(n_0, n_1,...,n_(k-1)). For this sequence, sum over n_0, n_1=odd.

a(1)=0; for n>1, if n=odd then a(n)= sum(mu(d)*3^(n/d))/(4n); d|n. If n=even, then a(n)= sum(mu(d)*(3^(n/d)-1))/(4n); d|n, d odd.


For n=3, out of 8 possible Lyndon words: 112, 113, 122, 123, 132, 133, 223, 233, only 123 and 132 have an odd number of both 1's and 2's. Thus a(3)=2.
