Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

See page 16 in the reference.

A zigzag is a substring which is either 010 or 101. The necklaces 01 and 10 are considered to be with a zigzag. Necklaces do not allow turnover.

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/n) * Sum_{d | n} totient(n/d) * A007039(d). - Andrew Howroyd, Feb 26 2017

EXAMPLE

For n=5 the necklaces are 00000, 11111, 00011, 00111 so a(5)=4.

MATHEMATICA

(* b = A007039 *) b[n_ /; n<4] = 2; b[4] = 6; b[n_] := b[n] = 2*b[n-1] - b[n-2] + b[n-4];

a[0] = 0; a[n_] := (1/n) * DivisorSum[n, EulerPhi[n/#] * b[#]&];

Table[a[n], {n, 0, 40}] (* Jean-François Alcover, Oct 08 2017, after Andrew Howroyd *)
