 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The cycle index: 1/48 (s_1^6 + 3 s_1^4 s_2 + 9 s_1^2 s_2^2 +7 s_2^3 + 8 s_3^2 + 6 s_1^2 s_4 + 6 s_2 s_4 + 8 s_6) is returned in Mathematica by CycleIndex[ Automorphisms[ OctahedralGraph ], s]. One-sixth the area of the right triangles with sides 2b+2, b^2+2b, and b^2+2b+2 with b = A000217(n), the n-th triangular number. - J. M. Bergot, Aug 02 2013 Also the number of ways to color the faces of a cube with n colors, counting each pair of mirror images as one.
