COMMENTS

These counts have been reduced for mirror symmetry. Computed up to n=5 by Jon Wild and Christopher Jones and communicated to Neil Sloane on August 31 2016. Definition corrected Dec 10 2017 thanks to Manfred Scheucher, who has computed same result with Stefan Felsner independently.

The list of arrangements is available online on the Homepage of Pseudocircles (see below) and a detailed description for the enumeration can be found in Arrangements of Pseudocircles: On Circularizability (see below). - Manfred Scheucher, Dec 11 2017

See A250001, the main entry for this problem, for further information.
