COMMENTS

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

Let g(n)=G(n,x) be the generating polynomial of the nonroot nodes of degree 2 of the rooted tree having MatulaGoebel number n, with respect to level. Then g(1)=g(2)=0; if n = p(t) (=the tth prime) and t is prime, then g(n)=x+x*g(t); if n=p(t) (=the tth prime) and t is not prime, then g(n)=x*g(t); if n=rs (r,s>=2), then g(n)=g(r)+g(s). Clearly, a(n)=G(n,1).


EXAMPLE

a(5)=2 because the rooted tree with MatulaGoebel number 5 is the path tree on 4 vertices. a(7)=0 because the rooted tree with MatulaGoebel number 7 is the rooted tree Y, with no vertices of degree 2.
