COMMENTS

The escape distance of a vertex v in a rooted tree T is the distance from v to the nearest leaf of T that is a descendant of v. For the rooted tree ARBCDEF, rooted at R, the escape distance of B is 4 (the leaf A is not a descendant of B).
The MatulaGoebel number of a rooted tree can be defined in the following recursive manner: to the onevertex tree there corresponds the number 1; to a tree T with root degree 1 there corresponds the tth prime number, where t is the MatulaGoebel 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 MatulaGoebel numbers of the m branches of T.

FORMULA

In A184167 one can find the generating polynomial P(n)=P(n,x) of the vertices of the rooted tree having MatulaGoebel number n, according to escape distance. a(n) is equal to the degree of the polynomial P.


EXAMPLE

a(7)=2 because the rooted tree with MatulaGoebel number 7 is the rooted tree Y, having 4 vertices with escape distances 0,0,1, and 2.
