COMMENTS

Each term of the sum a(n) is divisible by n, so a(n) is a multiple of n for all positive integers n.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2^n * Sum_{d|n} (phi(d)/d) Sum_{k=1..d} (-1)^(k*n/d)*cos(k*Pi/d)^n - n.

EXAMPLE

Row 6 of Pascal's triangle is: 1,6,15,20,15,6,1. The greatest common divisors of n and each integer from 1 to 6 are: GCD(1,6)=1, GCD(2,6)=2, GCD(3,6)=3, GCD(4,6)=2, GCD(5,6)=1, and GCD(6,6)=6. So a(6) = 6*1 + 15*2 + 20*3 + 15*2 + 6*1 + 1*6 = 138. Note that each term of the sum is a multiple of 6, so 138 is a multiple of 6.
