Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

a(6) has 140 digits and a(7) has 203 digits.

The Corner-turning Octahedron is a regular octahedron puzzle in the style of Rubik's Cube. The rotational axes of the pieces are parallel to the lines connecting a pair of opposite vertices. In comparison, the rotational axes of the Face-turning Octahedron are perpendicular to the faces. As a result, the only rotation of the Corner-turning Octahedron of size 2 is the trivial rotation of the tips (it is not the same of the Skewb Diamond, the Face-turning Octahedron of size 2). For n >= 3, see the Michael Gottlieb link below for an explanation of the term a(n).

FORMULA

a(n) = 6^(-16*n+72) * (24!)^(2*n-6) * a(n-3) for n >= 6.

Let A = 258369126400, then for n >= 3: a(n) = A * 6^(-8*n^2/3+16*n-19) * (24!)^(n^2/3-n) if 3 divides n, otherwise a(n) = A * 560 * 6^(-8*n^2+16*n-43/3) * (24!)^(n^2/3-n-1/3).

EXAMPLE

See the Michael Gottlieb link above.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = if(n<=2, 1, my(A = 258369126400); if(!(n%3), A * 6^(-8*n^2/3+16*n-19) * (24!)^(n^2/3-n), A * 560 * 6^(-8*n^2/3+16*n-43/3) * (24!)^(n^2/3-n-1/3)))
