FORMULA

The cycle index is implicit in Titsworth.

Sequences A056372-A056375 fit a general formula, implemented in PARI/GP as follows: { a(m,n) = sum(k=1, n, if(gcd(k, n)==1, m^sumdiv(n, d, eulerphi(d)/znorder(Mod(k, d))), 0); ) / eulerphi(n) }. - Max Alekseyev, Nov 08 2007

MATHEMATICA

a[m_, n_] := (1/EulerPhi[n])*Sum[If[GCD[k, n] == 1, m^DivisorSum[n, EulerPhi[#]/MultiplicativeOrder[k, #] &], 0], {k, 1, n}]; Table[a[5, n], {n, 1, 23}] (* Jean-François Alcover, Dec 04 2015 *)
