COMMENTS

The discriminants for C(n,x), the minimal polynomial of 2*cos(Pi/n) are found under A193681. The degree of C(n,x), called delta(n), is given as A055034(n).

Compare this sequence with A193679, the anologon for the cyclotomic polynomials. See also the P. Ribenboim reference given in A004124.

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^delta(n))/Discriminant(C(n,x)), n>=1, with the minimal polynomials C(n,x) of 2*cos(Pi/n), with coefficient triangle given in A187360, and their degree delta(n) given in A055034(n).

a(1) = 1. Conjectures for a(n), n>=2: i) a(2^k) = 2, k>=1;

  ii) a(p^k) = p^((p^(k-1)+1)/2), for odd prime p and k>=1;

  iii) a(n) = product(p^(delta(n)/(p-1)), odd p|n) otherwise.

EXAMPLE

a(30) = 30^delta(30)/A193681(30) = 30^8/324000000 = 2025.

For the conjectures: i) a(4) = 2; ii) a^(3^2) = a(9) = 3^((3+1)/2) = 9; iii) a(30) = a(2*3*5) = 3^(delta(30)/2)*5^(delta(30)/4) = 3^4*5^2 = 2025;

  a(40) = a(2^3*5) = 5^(delta(40)/4) = 5^4 = 625; a(45) = a(3^2*5) = 3^(delta(45)/2)* 5^(delta(45)/4) = 91125;
