%N Number of chiral pairs of color patterns (set partitions) in a cycle of length n using 4 or fewer colors (subsets).

%C Two color patterns are equivalent if the colors are permuted.

%C Adnk[d,n,k] in Mathematica program is coefficient of x^k in A(d,n)(x) in Gilbert and Riordan reference.

%C There are nonrecursive formulas, generating functions, and computer programs for A056292 and A305750, which can be used in conjunction with the first formula.

%F a(n) = (A056292(n) - A305750(n)) / 2 = A056292(n) - A056354(n) = A056354(n) - A305750(n).

%F a(n) = Sum_{j=1..k} -Ach(n,j)/2 + (1/2n)*Sum_{d|n} phi(d)*A(d,n/d,j), where k=4 is the maximum number of colors, Ach(n,k) = [n>=0 & n<2 & n==k] + [n>1]*(k*Ach(n-2,k) + Ach(n-2,k-1) + Ach(n-2,k-2)), and A(d,n,k) = [n==0 & k==0] + [n>0 & k>0]*(k*A(d,n-1,k) + Sum_{j|d} A(d,n-1,k-j)).

%e For a(6)=6, the chiral pairs are AAABBC-AAABCC, AABABC-AABCAC, AABACB-AABCAB, AABACC-AABBAC, AABACD-AABCAD, and AABCBD-AABCDC.
