In an earlier paper, the second author of this letter proved an algorithm for computing the symmetry of molecules. He applied his algorithm to calculate the symmetry of the smallest fullerene C20. In this letter, we improve the mentioned algorithm to compute the automorphism group of the fullerene C60 with connectivity and geometry of I hsymmetry point group.
