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.

a(2^n) = A228318(n). Indeed, the rooted tree corresponding to the Matula-Goebel number 2^n is the star graph K(1,n).

a(A007097(n)) = A228321(n). Indeed, A007097(n) for n=1,2,... yields the primeth recurrence sequence (A007097(1)=2, A007097(n+1)=A007097(n)-th prime; first few terms are 2,3,5,11,31,127,709). The corresponding rooted trees are the path trees on n+1 vertices.

Index entries for sequences related to Matula-Goebel numbers


In Balakrishnan et al. one proves that the Wiener index of the Mycielskian of a connected graph G is 6V^2 - V - 7E - 4p(2) - p(3), where V is number of vertices of G, E is number of edges in G, and p(i) is number of pairs of vertices in G which are at distance i. For the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number n these quantities can be found in A061775, A196050, and A196059.
