FORMULA

an) = A054625(n) - 6*A001869(n) + 15*A001868(n) - 20*A001867(n) + 15*A000031(n) - 6.

From Robert A. Russell, Sep 26 2018: (Start)

a(n) = (k!/n) Sum_{d|n} phi(d) S2(n/d,k), where k=6 is the number of colors and S2 is the Stirling subset number A008277.

G.f.: -Sum_{d>0} (phi(d)/d) * Sum_{j} (-1)^(k-j) * C(k,j) * log(1-j x^d), where k=6 is the number of colors. (End)

EXAMPLE

For n=6, the 120 necklaces are A followed by the 120 permutations of BCDEF.
