COMMENTS

This sequence gives important additional insight into the algorithm for the calculation of A002326 (see A179680 for its description). Let us estimate how many steps are required before (the first) 1 will appear. Note that all partial fractions (which are indeed, integers) are odd residues modulo 2*n+1 from the interval [1,2*n1]. So, if there is no a repetition, then the number of steps does not exceed n. Suppose then that there is a repetition before the appearance of 1. Then for an odd residue k from [1, 2*n1], 2^m_1 == 2^m_2 == k (mod 2*n+1) such that m_2 > m_1. But then 2^(m_2m_1) == 1 (mod 2*n+1). So, since m_2  m_1 < m_2, it means that 1 should appear earlier than the repetition of k, which is a contradiction. So the number of steps <= n. For example, for n=9, 2*n+1 = 19, we have exactly 9 steps with all other odd residues <= 17 modulo 19 appearing before the final 1: 5, 3, 11, 15, 17, 9, 7, 13, 1.
A001122 gives the odd numbers k such that a((k1)/2) = A000290((k1)/2).

FORMULA

For all n >= 1, A000196(a((A001122(1+n)1)/2)) = (A001122(1+n)1)/2, in other words, a(A163782(n)) = A000290(A163782(n)).


EXAMPLE

Let n = 9. According to the comment, a(9) = 5 + 3 + 11 + 15 + 17 + 9 + 7 + 13 + 1 = 81.
