COMMENTS

The values a(19) and a(21) were obtained by Aichholzer et al. in 2006. The value a(18) is claimed by the Rectilinear Crossing Number project after months of distributed computing. This was confirmed by Abrego et al., they also found the values a(20) and a(22) to a(27). The next unknown entry, a(28), is either 7233 or 7234.  Bernardo M.
