A038142 Number of planar cata-polyhexes with n cells. 6
1, 1, 2, 5, 12, 36, 118, 411, 1489, 5572, 21115 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Number of cata-condensed benzenoid hydrocarbons with n hexagons.

a(n) is the number of n-celled polyhexes with perimeter 4n+2. 4n+2 is the maximal perimeter of an n-celled polyhex. a(n) is the number of n-celled polyhexes that have a tree as their connectedness graph (vertices of this graph correspond to cells and two vertices are connected if the corresponding cells have a common edge) - Tanya Khovanova, Jul 27 2007
