COMMENTS

We define the Mindex of a tree T to be the smallest of the Matula numbers of the rooted trees isomorphic (as a tree) to T. Example. The path tree P[5] = ABCDE has Mindex 9. Indeed, there are 3 rooted trees isomorphic to P[5]: rooted at A, B, and C, respectively. Their Matula numbers are 11, 10, and 9, respectively. Consequently, the Mindex of P[5] is 9.
a(n) = largest (= last) entry in row n of A235111.
It is conjectured that for n>=7 one has a(n) = A235120(n6).
These numbers can be useful, for example, in the following situation. We intend to identify all trees that have 10 vertices and satisfy a certain property. Instead of scanning all rooted trees with Matula numbers from A005517(10)=125 to A005518(10)=219613, we do the scanning only for Matula numbers between 125 and a(10)=1273.

FORMULA

a(n) = A235111(n,A000055(n)).


EXAMPLE

a(4)=7. Indeed, there are 2 trees with 4 vertices: the path P[4] and the star S[3] with 3 edges. There are two rooted trees isomorphic to P[4]; they have Matula numbers 5 and 6; so the Mindex is 5. There are two rooted trees isomorphic to S[3]; they have Matula numbers 7 and 8; so the Mindex is 7. Max(5,7) = 7.
