COMMENTS

Fn(z) is a rational function of degree -(n+1). Recently Brouwer, Cohen, and later Sally Jr. calculated Fn(z) for all n <= 18 and n = 20, 22, 24. It is rumored that Littelmann, Procesi, Laurent have calculated Fn(z) for many other values of n.

This sequence is somewhat badly defined. The values 18, 15, 48, 18 are not the degrees of the numerator of this rational function in lowest terms, but rather are degrees of a "representative" form. But there may be several representative forms with different degrees. - Andries E. Brouwer, Jan 15 2009

EXAMPLE

F8(z) = (1 + z^8 + z^9 + z^10 + z^18)/Product_{i = 2..7} (1-z^i), hence a(8) = 18.
