COMMENTS

The harmonic index of a graph is defined as the summation of 2/(d(u)+d(v)) over all edges uv of G, where d(w) denotes the degree of the vertex w.
The Matula number of a rooted tree can be defined in the following recursive manner: to the onevertex tree there corresponds the number 1; to a tree T with root degree 1 there corresponds the tth prime number, where t is the Matula 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 numbers of the m branches of T.

FORMULA

There are recurrence relations that give the harmonic index of an "elevated" rooted tree (attach a new vertex to the root which becomes the root of the new tree) and of the merge of two rooted trees (identify the two roots). They make use of the sequence of the degrees of the level1 vertices (denoted by DL in the Maple program).
In the Maple program, F(n) gives the actual (not rounded) harmonic index of the rooted tree with Matula number n. For example, F(987654321) = 807/70; the corresponding tree is the 29vertex tree given in Fig. 2 of the Deutsch reference.


EXAMPLE

a(5)=2; indeed the rooted tree with Matula number 5 is the path PQRS (rooted at P). The edges PQ and RS have endpoints of degrees 1 and 2 and the edge QR has endpoints of degrees 2 and 2; consequently, the contributions of these 3 edges to the harmonic index are 2/3, 2/3, and 1/2, respectively; the harmonic index is 4/3 + 1/2 = 11/6 = 1.8333.
