COMMENTS

The Matula-Goebel number of a rooted tree is defined in the following recursive manner: to the one-vertex tree there corresponds the number 1; to a tree T with root degree 1 there corresponds the t-th prime number, where t is the Matula-Goebel number of the tree obtained from T by deleting the edge emanating from the root; to a tree T with root degree m>=2 there corresponds the product of the Matula-Goebel numbers of the m branches of T.

FORMULA

In A184154 one constructs for each n the generating polynomial P(n,x) of the leaves of the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number n, according to their levels. a(n) = degree of the numerator of P(n,1/x) (see the Maple program).

EXAMPLE

a(7)=0 because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 7 is the rooted tree Y with all leaves at level 2.

a(2^m)=0 because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 2^m is the star with m edges; all leaves are at level 1.

MAPLE

with(numtheory): a := proc (n) local r, s, P: r := proc (n) options operator, arrow: op(1, factorset(n)) end proc: s := proc (n) options operator, arrow: n/r(n) end proc: P := proc (n) if n = 1 then 1 elif bigomega(n) = 1 then sort(expand(x*P(pi(n)))) else sort(P(r(n))+P(s(n))) end if end proc: degree(numer(subs(x = 1/x, P(n)))) end proc; seq(a(n), n = 1 .. 110);
