COMMENTS

Partition sets of n into four parts (sides) such that the sum of any three is more than the fourth do not uniquely define a quadrilateral, even if it is further constrained to be cyclic. This is because the order of adjacent sides is important. E.g. the partition set [1,1,2,2] for a perimeter n=6 can be reordered to generate two non-congruent cyclic quadrilaterals, [1,2,1,2] and [1,1,2,2], where the first is a rectangle and the second a kite. - Frank M Jackson, Jun 29 2012

FORMULA

G.f.: x^4*(1+x+x^5)/((1-x^2)*(1-x^3)*(1-x^4)*(1-x^6)).

a(2*n+6) = A026810(2*n+6) - A000601(n), a(2*n+7) = A026810(2*n+7) - A000601(n) for n >= 0. - Seiichi Manyama, Jun 08 2017

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 2 as the two partitions are (1,2,2,2), (1,1,2,3) and in each sum of any three is more than the fourth.
