COMMENTS

Fisher and Hiley give 396204 as their last term instead of 396172 (see A002932). Douglas McNeil confirms 396172 (see seqfan discussion).
Comment from N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 27 2010: Joseph Myers has discovered that several of the sequences listed by Fisher and Riley (1961) contained errors. R. J. Mathar comments that this article has 62 citations in http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1961JChPh..34.1253F and that clicking through these with the "Citations to the Article (62)" button is one way to check the numbers by searching for corrections.
