COMMENTS

Each member of a chiral pair is a reflection, but not a rotation, of the other. The Schläfli symbols for the regular icosahedron and regular dodecahedron are {3,5} and {5,3} respectively. They are mutually dual.

FORMULA

a(n) = (n-1) * n^2 * (n+1) * (n^8 + n^6 - 14*n^4 + 44) / 120.

a(n) = 14*C(n,2) + 3678*C(n,3) + 117388*C(n,4) + 1363860*C(n,5) + 7918056*C(n,6) + 26332992*C(n,7) + 53428032*C(n,8) + 67359600*C(n,9) + 51559200*C(n,10) + 21954240*C(n,11) + 3991680*C(n,12), where the coefficient of C(n,k) is the number of chiral pairs of colorings using exactly k colors.

a(n) = A000545(n) - A252705(n) = (A000545(n) - A337962(n)) / 2 = A252705(n) - A337962(n).
