COMMENTS

The Matula-Goebel 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-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

The Maple program d finds recursively the distance matrix (time consuming).

EXAMPLE

a(2)=-1 because the rooted tree with Matula number 2 is the one-edge tree with distance matrix [(0,1, (1,0)].
