COMMENTS

From Vladimir Shevelev, Apr 23 2011: (Start)

Also number of nonequivalent necklaces of 7 beads each of them painted by one of n colors.

The sequence solves the so-called Reis problem about convex k-gons in case k=7 (see our comment to A032279).

From Vladimir Shevelev, Apr 23 2011: (Start)

Put s(n,k,d)=1,if n==k(mod d); 0, otherwise. Then

a(n)=(3/7)*s(n,0,7)+(48*C(n-1,6)+7*(n-2)*(n-4)*(n-6))/672, if n is even; a(n)=(3/7)*s(n,0,7)+(48*C(n-1,6)+7*(n-1)*(n-3)*(n-5))/672, if n is odd.
