COMMENTS

The modified eccentric connectivity index of a graph is defined as the sum of the products of eccentricity with the total degree of neighboring vertices, over all vertices of the graph. This is a generalization of eccentric connectivity index.

a(n) = 4*A093353(n-1) = n*A168273(n) for n>2. - Alois P. Heinz, Jun 26 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*n*(n-1) if n is odd; and a(n) = 2*n^2 if n is even (n>2).

G.f.: -4*x^3*(3+5*x-4*x^2-2*x^3+2*x^4)/((x+1)^2*(x-1)^3). - Alois P. Heinz, Jun 26 2014

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 3*4 = 12 because there are 3 vertices and each vertex has eccentricity 1 and the total degree of neighboring vertices is 4.

MAPLE

a:= n-> n*(2*n-1+(-1)^n):

seq(a(n), n=3..60);  # Alois P. Heinz, Jun 26 2014
