COMMENTS
Number of cata-condensed benzenoid hydrocarbons with n hexagons.
a(n) is the number of n-celled polyhexes with perimeter 4n+2. 4n+2 is the maximal perimeter of an n-celled polyhex. a(n) is the number of n-celled polyhexes that have a tree as their connectedness graph (vertices of this graph correspond to cells and two vertices are connected if the corresponding cells have a common edge). - Tanya Khovanova, Jul 27 2007
