Index entries for doubling substrings

EXAMPLE

a(k) = 0 for k<7, since no shorter string can be obtained by duplication of substrings.

a(7) = 1 = # { abcdefg },

a(8) = 7 = # { aabcdefg, abbcdefg, abccdefg, abcddefg, abcdeefg, abcdeffg, abcdefgg },

a(9) = 8*(8+1)/2-2 = 34: for each letter we have one string of the form aaabcdefg;

for each 2-element subset {a,b}, {a,c},... we have the string with each of these two letters duplicated (i.e. aabbcdefg, aabccdefg,...),

and for each of ab,bc,cd,...,fg we have the string with this substring duplicated (ababcdefg,...,abcdefgfg).

(see A137746 for the pattern)
