COMMENTS

a(n) for n >= 2 may be defined as follows. For a full ndimensional shift, let M(N) = Sum_{L} O(L)/exp(h[L]), where the sum is over subgroups L of finite index in Z^n, O(L) is the number of points with stabilizer L, and exp(h) is the number of symbols.
Then M(N) is asymptotic to a rational times a power of Pi times a product of values of the zeta function at odd integers, and a(n) is the numerator of that rational.

FORMULA

M(N) = residue(zeta(z+1) * ... * zeta(zn+2) * N^z, z=n1) = (a(n)/b(n)) * N^(d1) * Pi^(floor(n/2)*(floor(n/2)+1)) * Product_{j=1..floor((n1)/2)} zeta(2*j+1), where b(n) = A159282(n).


EXAMPLE

For n = 12, using the formula in terms of residues, we have residue(zeta(z+1) * ... * zeta(z10) * N^z/z, z=11) = (691/3168740859543387253125000) * zeta(3) * zeta(5) * zeta(7) * zeta(9) * zeta(11) * Pi^42 * N^11, so a(12) = 691 and A159282(12) = 3168740859543387253125000.
