COMMENTS

Bracelets can be turned over; turning the seventh example gives a different necklace but the same bracelet.

a(n) is also the number of inequivalent compositions of n into parts 1 and 2 where two compositions are considered equivalent if one can be obtained from the other by a cyclic rotation and/or reversing of the summands. a(7) = 5 because we have: 2+2+2+1, 2+2+1+1+1, 2+1+2+1+1, 2+1+1+1+1+1, 1+1+1+1+1+1+1. - Geoffrey Critzer, Feb 01 2014

a(n) is also the average of sequence A000358(n) and Fib(floor(n/2)+2). The expression (1+x)*(1+x^2)/(1-x^2-x^4) (due to H. Kociemba) is the g.f. of Fib(floor(n/2)+2). Even though the offset of a(n) is set at n = 2, the formula is true even for n=1 because a(1) = 1 = (1+1)/2 (since the sequence 1 on a circle does not allow the pattern 00 when it is allowed to wrap around itself on the circle, while the sequence 0 does). - Petros Hadjicostas, Jan 04 2017

FORMULA

G.f.: [Sum_{n>=1} phi(n)*log(1- x^n*(1+x^n))/n + ((1+x)*(1+x^2))/(-1+x^2+x^4)]/(-2). - Herbert Kociemba, Dec 04 2016

a(n) = [A000358(n)+Fib(floor(n/2)+2)]/2. - Petros Hadjicostas, Jan 04 2017

a(n) = [Fib(floor(n/2)+2)+(1/n) * sum_{d divides n} phi(n/d)*(Fib(d-1)+Fib(d+1))]/2. - Petros Hadjicostas, Jan 04 2017 (with help from Lingyun Zhang).
