# The chromatic polynomial of the hyper cube graph $Q_4$?

I need to research cube graphs for problems in evolutionary biology. To that end I have generated a few 100,000 graphs on the 4-cube. However, I want to double check that my list is correct. To that end it would be handy to have the chromatic polynomial. By evaluating the polynomial at $x=-1$ one finds the number of Directed Acyclic Graphs on the 4-cube, according to a result by Stanley.

Does anyone know the chromatic polynomial of the hyper cube graph $Q_4$?

• Posted also on MO: Chromatic polynomial for hyper cube. I think that this answer gives a very reasonable advice about cross-posting. And there are several other discussions about cross-posting on meta. Jun 21, 2017 at 13:51
• Dear Martin Sleziak, my question was put on hold. I have no clue why. I added context, but that did not help from my understanding. My best guess is that my question sorts under "research" rather than a student question. For that reason I asked the same question in mathoverflow. I greatly appreciate the answer I got, by the way.
