COMMENTS

A string and its reverse are considered to be equivalent. Permuting the colors will not change the structure.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum mu(d)*A001998(n/d-1) where d|n.

MATHEMATICA

a1998[n_] := If[OddQ[n], (1/4)*(3^n + 4*3^((n-1)/2) + 1), (1/4)*(3^n + 2*3^(n/2) + 1)];

a[n_] := DivisorSum[n, MoebiusMu[#] a1998[n/#-1]&];
