The Matula-Göbel number of a rooted tree can be 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-Göbel 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-Göbel numbers of the m branches of T.

Let T be a rooted tree with root b. If b has degree 1, then let A be the rooted tree with root c, obtained from T by deleting the edge bc emanating from the root. If b has degree >=2, then A is obtained (not necessarily in a unique way) by joining at b two trees B and C, rooted at b. It is straightforward to express the distance matrix of T in terms of the entries of the distance matrix of A (resp. of B and C). Making use of this, the Maple program (improvable!) finds recursively the distance matrices of the rooted trees with Matula-Göbel numbers 1..1000 (upper limit can be altered), then switches (easily) to the Laplacian matrices and finds their  characteristic polynomials.


5 is in the sequence because the rooted tree with Matula-Göbel number 5 is the path on 4 vertices; the Laplacian matrix is [1,-1,0,0; -1,2,-1,0; 0,-1,2,-1;0,0,-1,1] with characteristic polynomial x(x-2)(x^2 -4x +2).
