EXAMPLE
G.f. = 1 + x^2 + 2*x^3 + 5*x^4 + 19*x^5 + 85*x^6 + 509*x^7 + 4060*x^8 + 41302*x^9 + 510489*x^10 + 7319447*x^11 + ...
a(0) = 1 because the null graph (with no vertices) is vacuously 3-regular.
a(1) = 0 because there are no simple connected cubic graphs with 2 nodes.
a(2) = 1 because the tetrahedron is the only cubic graph with 4 nodes.
