COMMENTS
A tesseract is a regular 4-dimensional orthotope or hypercube with 16 vertices and 32 edges. Its Schläfli symbol is {4,3,3}. Two oriented colorings are the same if one is a rotation of the other; chiral pairs are counted as two. Also the number of oriented colorings of the triangular faces of a regular 4-dimensional orthoplex {3,3,4} with n available colors.
There are 192 elements in the rotation group of the tesseract. Each is associated with a partition of 4 based on the conjugacy group of the permutation of the axes. The first formula is obtained by averaging their cycle indices after replacing x_i^j with n^j according to the Pólya enumeration theorem.
