COMMENTS
Previous name was: Number of chordal planar triangulations; also number of planar triangulations with maximal number of triangles; also number of graphs obtained from the tetrahedron by repeatedly inserting vertices of degree 3 into a triangular face; also number of uniquely 4-colorable planar graphs; also number of simplicial 3-clusters with n cells; also Apollonian networks with n+3 vertices.
Also arises in enumeration of spectral isomers of alkane systems (see Cyvin et al.). - N. J. A. Sloane, Aug 15 2006
Chordal planar triangulations: take planar triangulations on n nodes, divide them into classes according to how many triangles they contain (all have 2n-4 triangular faces but may have additional triangles); count triangulations in class with most triangles.
If mirror images are not taken as equivalent, A007173 is obtained instead. - Brendan McKay, Mar 08 2014
