COMMENTS

A vertex subset in a tree is said to be independent if no pair of vertices is connected by an edge. The empty set is considered to be independent. An independent vertex subset S of a tree is said to be maximal if every vertex that is not in S is joined by an edge to at least one vertex of S.

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.

Number of entries in row n is A212625(n).

Sum of entries in row n = A212628(n).

Sum(k*T(n,k), k>=1) = A212629(n).

FORMULA

Let A(n)=A(n,x), B(n)=B(n,x), C(n)=C(n,x) be the generating polynomial with respect to size of the maximal independent sets that contain the root, the maximal independent sets that do not contain the root, and the independent sets which are not maximal but become maximal if the root is removed, respectively. We have : A(1)=x, B(1)=0, C(1)=1, A(t-th prime) = x[B(t) + C(t)], B(t-th prime) = A(t), C(t-th prime)=B(t), A(rs)=A(r)A(s)/x, B(rs)=B(r)B(s)+B(r)C(s)+B(s)C(r), C(rs)=C(r)C(s) (r,s>=2). The generating polynomial of the maximal independent vertex subsets of the r oo ted tree with Matula-Goebel number n, with respect to number of vertices, is P(n)=P(n,x)=A(n)+B(n). The Maple program is based on these relations.

EXAMPLE

Row 11 is 0, 3, 1 because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 11 is the path tree on 5 vertices R - A - B - C - D; the maximal independent vertex subsets are {R,C}, {A,C}, {A,D}, and {R,B,D}, i.e. none of size 1, three of size 2, and  one of size 3.
