COMMENTS

A word of length n is "rich" if it contains, as subwords, exactly n + 1 distinct palindromes (including the empty word). Here "subword" means contiguous subsequence of the word.

EXAMPLE

For n = 8 we have a(n) = 2^8 - 4 = 252 because the only non-rich words are 00101100, 00110100, and their complements.

MATHEMATICA

(* Program not suitable to compute a large number of terms *)

richQ[w_] := (w[[#[[1]] ;; #[[2]]]]& /@ SequencePosition[w, _?PalindromeQ] // Union // Length) == n+1;

a[n_] := a[n] = Select[PadLeft[IntegerDigits[#, 2], n]& /@ Range[0, 2^n-1], richQ] // Length; Table[Print["a(", n, ") = ", a[n]]; a[n], {n, 0, 16}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Sep 22 2018 *)

PROG

a(n) = {nbr = 0; for (i=0, 2^n-1, vb = binary(i); while(length(vb) < n, vb = concat(0, vb); ); if (isrich(vb, n), nbr++); ); return (nbr); } \\ Michel Marcus, May 26 2013
