Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The coefficients of the minimal polynomials C(N,x) of the algebraic number 2*cos(Pi/N) are given in A187360, where N is n.

The degree of C(N,x) is delta(N) = 1 if N=1 and delta(N) = phi(2*N)/2 if N > 1, with Euler's totient function phi(n) = A000010(n).

The forbidden degree values are shown in the complement (relative to the positive integers) A079695.

The array of the values N (the indices) for which the degree delta(N) = a(n), n >= 1, is given in A207334.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..67.

FORMULA

a(n) gives the allowed degree values, called delta, of the minimal polynomials C ordered increasingly, For C and delta see the comment section.

EXAMPLE

a(8) = 9 because there is at least one polynomial C(N,x) with degree delta(N)=9. In fact the only N values are 19 and 27.

7 is no member of this sequence (it belongs to the complement A079695).
