COMMENTS

In Schick's book these are the B values, the number of periodic sequences, for the odd numbers N with B values >= 2. These numbers N are given in A333855.
In the complete coach system Sigma(b) of Hilton and Pedersen, these are the number of coaches for the odd numbers b from A333855 with more than one coach.
These are also the number of periodic modified doubling sequences for the odd numbers b from A333855 given in comments and examples by _Gary W. Admason_, See his Aug 25 2019 comment in A065941, where this is named "rt table" (for roots trajectory).

FORMULA

a(n) = A135303((A333855(n)1)/2), for n >= 1.


EXAMPLE

n = 23: A333855(23) = 127 with A135303((1271)/2) = A135303(63) = 9 = a(23). There are 9 Schick cycles (see also A333850), also 9 coaches, and also 9 modified doubling sequences.
