COMMENTS

From Frank M Jackson, Jul 10 2012: (Start)
I recently commented on A062890 that:
"Partition sets of n into four parts (sides) such that the sum of any three is more than the fourth do not uniquely define a quadrilateral, even if it is further constrained to be cyclic. This is because the order of adjacent sides is important. E.g. the partition set [1,1,2,2] for a perimeter n=6 can be reordered to generate two noncongruent cyclic quadrilaterals, [1,2,1,2] and [1,1,2,2], where the first is a rectangle and the second a kite."
This comment applies to all integer polygons (other than triangles) that are generated from a perimeter of length n. Not sure how best to correct for the above observation but my suggestion would be to change the definition of the present sequence to read:
"The number of cyclic integer pentagons differing only in circumradius that can be generated from an integer perimeter n." (End)
