COMMENTS

Number of conjugacy classes in the symmetric group S_n that have odd number of elements.

Also sequence A001316 doubled.

Number of even numbers whose binary expansion is a child of the binary expansion of n. - Nadia Heninger and N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 06 2008

First differences of A151566. Sequence gives number of toothpicks added at the n-th generation of the leftist toothpick sequence A151566. - N. J. A. Sloane, Oct 20 2010

The Fi1 and Fi1 triangle sums, see A180662 for their definitions, of Sierpiński's triangle A047999 equal this sequence. - Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 05 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = sum{k=0..floor(n/2), C(n, 2k) mod 2} - Paul Barry, Jan 03 2005, Edited by Harry J. Smith, Sep 15 2009

a(n) = gcd(A056040(n), 2^n). - Peter Luschny, Jun 30 2011

G.f.: (1 + x) * Product_{k>=0} (1 + 2*x^(2^(k+1))). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 19 2019

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 2 because in S_3 there are two conjugacy classes with odd number of elements, the trivial conjugacy class and the conjugacy class of transpositions consisting of 3 elements: (12),(13),(23).
