COMMENTS

A circular binary word (a.k.a. "necklace") can be viewed as a representative of the equivalence class under cyclic shift.
The words counted by this sequence have 2^i distinct blocks of length i = floor(log_2 n) and n distinct blocks of length i+1.
This sequence counts a certain natural generalization of de Bruijn words, which are cyclic words of length 2^n containing all nbit blocks as subwords.

EXAMPLE

For n = 6 the 3 possibilities are {000111, 001011, 001101}. Each contains all 4 blocks of length 2, and 6 distinct blocks of length 3 (when considered circularly).
