COMMENTS

Sequence gives the number of edgetoedge regularpolygon tilings having n topologically distinct vertex types. Allows tilings with two or more vertex types having the same arrangement of surrounding polygons, as long as those vertices are topologically distinct.
There are eleven 1uniform tilings (also called the "Archimedean" tessellations) which comprise the three regular tessellations (all triangles, squares, or hexagons) plus the eight semiregular tessellations.
