 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Number of factors in the factorization of the polynomial x^n-1 over the integers mod 5. - 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 FORMULA a(n) = Sum_{d|m} phi(d)/ord(5, d), where m is n with all factors of 5 removed. - T. D. Noe, Apr 19 2003 a(n) = (1/ord(5,m))*Sum_{j = 0..ord(5,m)-1} gcd(5^j - 1, m), where m is n with all factors of 5 removed. - Nihar Prakash Gargava, Nov 14 2018 EXAMPLE a(15) = 2 because (1) the function 5x mod 15 has the two cycles (0),(5,10) and (2) the factorization of x^15-1 over integers mod 5 is (4+x)^5 (1+x+x^2)^5, which has two unique factors. Note that the length of the cycles is the same as the degree of the factors.
