 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS More explicitly, a(n) is the number of colorings with at most n colors of the faces of a regular dodecahedron, inequivalent under the action of the rotation group of the dodecahedron. It is also the number of inequivalent colorings of the vertices of a regular icosahedron using at most n colors. - José H. Nieto S., Jan 19 2012 From Robert A. Russell, Oct 03 2020: (Start) Each chiral pair is counted as two when enumerating oriented arrangements. The Schläfli symbols for the regular icosahedron and regular dodecahedron are {3,5} and {5,3} respectively. They are mutually dual. There are 60 elements in the rotation group of the regular dodecahedron/icosahedron. They divide into five conjugacy classes. The first formula is obtained by averaging the dodecahedron face (icosahedron vertex) cycle indices after replacing x_i^j with n^j according to the Pólya enumeration theorem.   Conjugacy Class    Count    Even Cycle Indices   Identity              1     x_1^12   Edge rotation        15     x_2^6   Vertex rotation      20     x_3^4   Small face rotation  12     x_1^2x_5^2   Large face rotation  12     x_1^2x_5^2  (End) LINKS T.
