Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The polynomials y(k,x) range through all monic polynomials with coefficients in {-1,0,1}, ordered as at A206821.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..50.

EXAMPLE

The first 13 polynomials:

1 .... 1

2 .... x

3 .... x + 1

4 .... x^2

5 .... x^2 - 1

6 .... x^2 - x

7 .... x^2 - x - 1

8 .... x^2 + 1

9 .... x^2 + x

10 ... x^2 + x + 1

11 ... x^3

12 ... x^3 - 1

13 ... x^3 - x

The list exemplifies these sequences:

A207187 (multiples of x + 1): 3,5,9,13,...

A207188 (multiples of x): 2,4,6,9,11,13,...

A207189 (multiples of x - 1): 5,6,12,13,...

A207190 (multiples of x^2 + 1): 8,20,25,27,...
