FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{d|n} mu(d)*A056284(n/d).

MAPLE

with(numtheory):

b:= proc(n, k) option remember; `if`(n=0, 1,

      add(mobius(n/d)*k^d, d=divisors(n))/n)

    end:

a:= n-> add(b(n, 4-j)*binomial(4, j)*(-1)^j, j=0..4):

seq(a(n), n=1..30);  # Alois P. Heinz, Jan 25 2015

MATHEMATICA

b[n_, k_] := b[n, k] = If[n==0, 1, DivisorSum[n, MoebiusMu[n/#]*k^#&]/n]; a[n_] := Sum[b[n, 4-j]*Binomial[4, j]*(-1)^j, {j, 0, 4}]; Table[a[n], {n, 1, 30}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Feb 20 2017, after Alois P. Heinz *)
