COMMENTS

The conjugate of a binary sequence is a cyclic shift. For example, 001011 and 110010 are conjugates because if you rotate the first 4 places to the left, you get the second.
The Hamming distance is the number of bits that are different.

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 12, with examples being 001011, 001101, 010011, 010110, 011001, 011010, and their complements (0's and 1's interchanged). The conjugates of 001011 are: 010110, 101100, 011001, 110010, and 100101, which have Hamming distances 4, 4, 2, 4, and 4, respectively, so exactly one has distance 2.
