 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS A face number function for a type of exceptional group expansion using Euler's formula V=E-F+2. Derived in Mathematica to give known exceptional group polyhedron sequence: (Platonic solids) e = n*(n - 1); v = f - 2^(n - 3); Solve[v + f - e - 2 == 0, f] Table[Round[{-e, v, f}], {n, 1, 7}] {{0, 1, 1}, {-2, 2, 2}, {-6, 4, 4}, {-12, 6, 8}, {-20, 9, 13}, {-30, 12, 20}, {-42, 14, 30}} Table[Apply[Plus, Round[{-e, v, f}]], {n, 1, 7}]->{2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2} This result is just a sequence of numbers that seem to work.

FORMULA From Colin Barker, Jan 03 2020: (Start) G.f.: x*(1 - 4*x + 6*x^2 - 4*x^3 + x^4 - 3*x^5 + 3*x^6 - x^7) / ((1 - x)^3*(1 - 2*x)). a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 9*a(n-2) + 7*a(n-3) - 2*a(n-4) for n>8. a(n) = 2 + 2^(n-5) - (3*n)/2 + n^2/2 for n>4. (End) E.g.f.: (1/96)*(3*exp(2*x)-6*x-6*x^2-4*x^3-2*x^4+48*exp(x)*(4-2*x+x^2)-195). - Stefano Spezia, Jan 03 2020 after Colin Barker MATHEMATICA Table[Round[(1/16)(16 + 2^n - 8 n + 8 n^2)], {n, 0, 30}] PROG (PARI) Vec(x*(1 - 4*x + 6*x^2 - 4*x^3 + x^4 - 3*x^5 + 3*x^6 - x^7) / ((1 - x)^3*(1 - 2*x)) + O(x^40)) \\ Colin Barker, Jan 03 2020 CROSSREFS Sequence in context: A164476 A164466 A164487 * A115266 A164508 A308094 Adjacent sequences:  A130837 A130838 A130839 * A130841 A130842 A130843 KEYWORD nonn,easy AUTHOR Roger L.
