Also, number of chord configurations on n vertices of the period n.
Number of such chord configurations on 2n vertices with n chords is given by A005354(n+1).

FORMULA



EXAMPLE

For n=2, there are only two configurations possible: two diametrically located points on a circle connected or not connected with a chord. Since both these configurations are invariant w.r.t. rotation by angle Pi, a(2)=0.
