COMMENTS

The main entry for this sequence is A180916.

All terms except 4 are odd, because both the cube and the pentagonal pyramid have 6 faces, and for any even F > 6 both a prism and an antiprism can have F faces.  Platonic solids, Archimedean solids, Johnson solids, and prisms account for the missing odd numbers.

FORMULA

A180916(a(n)) = 1.

From Colin Barker, Jul 05 2020: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 + 11*x - 11*x^2 - 2*x^3 + 2*x^4 - 2*x^5 + 2*x^8 - 2*x^9 + 2*x^12 - 2*x^13) / (1 - x)^2.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2) for n>14.

(End)

EXAMPLE

The regular tetrahedron is the only convex polyhedron with 4 faces that are all regular polygons, and no such polyhedron with fewer than 4 faces exists, so a(1) = 4.
