%N Number of those nonnegative integer solutions of the congruence x_1+2x_2+...+(n-1)x_{n-1} = 0 (mod n) which are indecomposable, that is, are not nonnegative linear combinations of other nonnegative integer solutions.

%C a(n) is a lower bound for the number of fundamental invariants of binary forms of degree n+2 - see Kac. A lower estimate for a(n) is given by Dixmier et al.

%C a(n) is the number of nonempty multisets of positive integers < n such that their sum modulo n is zero and that no proper nonempty subset has this property. - _George B. Salomon_, Sep 29 2019

%e a(3)=3 since 3+2*0=3, 1+2*1=3 and 0+2*3=6 are the only indecomposable nonnegative integer solutions to x_1+2x_2=0 (mod 3): all other nonnegative integer solutions have form x_1=p*3+q*1+r*0, x_2=p*0+q*1+r*3 for nonnegative integers p, q, r.
