```in the cited excel sheet (link is dysfunctional)
for k from (0) to 10:
(1), 1,5,12,22,34,50,65,78,78,86
from k=11 to 20, we should get the same sequence backwards of course.
So it's now a 'fini'.

> %N A131976 Let G be the full icosahedral group, of order 120.  Let v_1,
..., v_20 be the vertices of the dodecahedron.  Let S(n) be the set of
vectors v_{i_1} + v_{i_2} + ... + v_{i_n} where 1 <= i_1 <= i_2 <= ... <=
i_n <= 20.  Then a(n) = number of orbits of G on S(n).
