 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Number of cycles of the function f(x) = 2x mod n. Number of irreducible factors in the factorization of the polynomial x^n-1 over the integers mod 2. - T. D. Noe, Apr 16 2003 REFERENCES R. Lidl and H. Niederreiter, Finite Fields, Addison-Wesley, 1983, p. 65. LINKS T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Jarkko Peltomäki and Aleksi Saarela, Standard words and solutions of the word equation X_1^2 ... X_n^2 = (X_1 ... X_n)^2, Journal of Combinatorial Theory, Series A (2021) Vol. 178, 105340. See also arXiv:2004.14657 [cs.FL], 2020. FORMULA a(n) = Sum_{d|m} phi(d)/ord(2, d), where m is n with all factors of 2 removed. - T. D. Noe, Apr 19 2003 a(n) = (1/ord(2,m))*Sum_{j = 0..ord(2,m)-1} gcd(2^j - 1, m), where m is n with all factors of 2 removed. - Nihar Prakash Gargava, Nov 12 2018 EXAMPLE a(14) = 3 because (1) the function 2x mod 14 has the three cycles (0),(2,4,8),(6,12,10) and (2) the factorization of x^14-1 over integers mod 2 is (1+x)^2 (1+x+x^3)^2 (1+x^2+x^3)^2, which has three unique factors. Note that the length of the cycles is the same as the degree of the factors.
