A216951 Let S be a string of n 2's and 3's, with curling number k, which means S = XY^k where k is maximized; a(n) = number of S for which X must be taken to be the empty string. 2

EXAMPLE

For n=6, there are 8 strings S that satisfy the condition:

222222, k=6, Y=2

223223, k=2, Y=223

232232, k=2, Y=232

232323, k=3, Y=23

and 4 more by exchanging 2 and 3. Note that 233233 with k=2 is not on the list, because we could choose X empty, Y=233 or X=2332, Y=3, and the latter avoids taking X to be empty.
