COMMENTS

Consider an n X n checkerboard whose tiles are assigned colors 0 and 1, at random. There are 2^(n^2) such checkerboards. We identify the opposite edges of each checkerboard, thus making it into a (topological) torus. There are a(n) such (distinct) tori. It is possible to show that a(n) >= 2^(n^2)/n^2 for all n.

Main diagonal of A184271.

Main diagonal of Table 3: The number a(m, n) of toroidal m x n binary arrays, allowing rotation of the rows and/or the columns but not reflection, for m, n = 1, 2, . . . , 8, at page 5 of Ethier. [Jonathan Vos Post, Jan 14, 2013]

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/n^2)*Sum_{ c divides n } Sum_{ d divides n } phi(c)*phi(d)*2^(n^2/lcm(c,d)), where phi is A000010 and lcm stands for least common multiple. - Stewart N. Ethier, Aug 24 2012

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Sum[If[Mod[n, c] == 0, Sum[If[Mod[n, d] == 0, EulerPhi[c] EulerPhi[d] 2^(n^2/LCM[c, d]), 0], {d, 1, n}], 0], {c, 1, n}]/n ^2
