%N Number of simple, connected, unit-distance graphs on n points realizable in the plane with straight edges all of the same length; lines are permitted to cross.

%C This counting problem is related to finding the chromatic number of the plane, X(R^2).

%e a(4)=5 because the complete graph on 4 points cannot be realized in the plane with all edges of equal length. All the other connected graphs with 4 points can be realized.

%Y Cf. A303792 (number of connected matchstick graphs).

%Y Cf. A308349 (number of minimal unit-distance forbidden graphs).
