COMMENTS

Enantiomorphic pairs are regarded as the same here. Cf. A057210.

Contradictory results from the program "buckygen" from Brinkmann et al. (2012) and the program "fullgen" from Brinkmann and Dress (1997) led to the detection of a non-algorithmic error in fullgen. This bug has now been fixed and the results are in complete agreement. a(10)-a(190) were independently confirmed by buckygen and fullgen, while a(191)-a(200) were computed only by buckygen. - Jan Goedgebeur, Aug 08 2012
