COMMENTS

Each member of a chiral pair is a reflection but not a rotation of the other. The Schläfli symbol of the 24-cell is {3,4,3}. It has 24 octahedral facets. It is self-dual. For n>96, a(n) = 0.

FORMULA

A338954(n) = Sum_{j=2..Min(n,96)} a(n) * binomial(n,j).

a(n) = A338956(n) - A338957(n) = (A338956(n) - A338959(n)) / 2 = A338957(n) - A338959(n).

MATHEMATICA

bp[j_] := Sum[k! StirlingS2[j, k] x^k, {k, 0, j}] (*binomial series*)
