%N Binary fractility of n.

%C For each x in (0,1], let 1/2^p(1) + 1/2^p(2) + ... be the infinite binary representation of x. Let d(1) = p(1) and d(i) = p(i) - p(i-1) for i >= 2. Call (d(i)) the powerdifference sequence of x, and denote it by D(x). Call m/n and u/v equivalent if every period of D(m/n) is a period of D(u/v). Define the binary fractility of n to be the number of distinct equivalence classes of {m/n: 0 < m < n}.

%C An equivalent definition of equivalence follows. Let S(x,h) denote the h-th partial sum of the infinite binary sum for x. Then m/n and u/v are equivalent if there exist integers p, h > 0, k > 0 such that (2^p)(m/n - S(m/n,h)) = u/v - S(u/v,k).

%e D(1/7) = (3,3,3,3, ... )

%e D(2/7) = (2,3,3,3, ... )

%e D(3/7) = (2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1, ... )

%e D(4/7) = (1,3,3,3, ... )

%e D(5/7) = (1,2,1,2,1,2, ... )

%e D(6/7) = (1,1,2,1,2,1, ... )

%e There are 2 distinct periods: (3) and (1,2), so that a(7) = 2.
