1,4

There are 2^n sums of the n-th roots of unity.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..20.

T. D. Noe, Sums of Roots of Unity Plots

a(4)=2 because the nonzero sums of 4th roots of unity have magnitude 1 or sqrt(2).

Cf. A103314 (number of subsets of the n-th roots of unity summing to zero).

Sequence in context: A011155 A161136 A258163 * A238761 A261469 A292498
