 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Term a(n) is a cyclical bit string of length 2^n, with every possible substring of length n occurring exactly once. Mathworld says: "Every de Bruijn sequence corresponds to an Eulerian cycle on a de Bruijn graph. Surprisingly, it turns out that the lexicographic sequence of Lyndon words of lengths divisible by n gives the lexicographically earliest de Bruijn sequence (Ruskey). de Bruijn sequences can be generated by feedback shift registers (Golomb 1967; Ronse 1984; Skiena 1990, p. 196)." Terms grow like Theta(2^(2^n)). - Darse Billings, Oct 18 2009 LINKS Darse Billings, Table of n, a(n) for n=1..9 Darse Billings, Python program F.
