The three possible assumptions considered here are the following:

s (for n odd) indicates that we are working in the "supergroup" and so take account of twists of the face centers.

m (for n > 3) indicates that the pieces are marked so that we take account of the permutation of the identically-colored pieces on a face.

i (for n > 3) indicates that we are working in the theoretical invisible group and solve the pieces on the interior of the cube as well as the exterior. It is assumed that the M and S traits apply to the interior pieces as if they were on the exterior of a smaller cube.

a(1)=1 ;a(2)=7!*3^6; a(3)=8!*3^7*12!*2^10*4^6/2; a(n)=a(n-2)*24!*(24!/2)^(n-3). - Herbert Kociemba, Dec 08 2016


f := proc(n) local A, B, C, D, E, F, G; if n mod 2 = 1 then A := (n-1)/2; F := 0; B := 1; C := 1; D := 1; E := (n+1)*(n-3)/4; G := 0; else A := n/2; F := 1; B := 1; C := 0; D := 0; E := n*(n-2)/4; G := 0; fi; (2^A*((8!/2)*3^7)^B*((12!/2)*2^11)^C*((4^6)/2)^D*(24!/2)^E)/(24^F*((24^6)/2)^G); end;


f[1]=1; f[2]=7!3^6; f[3]=8!3^7 12!2^10 4^6/2; f[n_]:=f[n-2]*24!(24!/2)^(n-3); Table[f[n], {n, 1, 10}] (* Herbert Kociemba, Dec 08 2016 *)
