COMMENTS

For n>= 3, a(n) is the second Zagreb index of the wheel graph with n+1 vertices. The second Zagreb index of a simple connected graph is the sum of the degree products d(i)d(j) over all edges ij of g.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..45.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 2 * A140091(n) = 3 * A028552(n) = 6 * A000096(n).

G.f.: 6*x*(2-x)/(1-x)^3

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 54. Indeed, the wheel graph with 4 vertices consists of 6 edges, each connecting two vertices of degree 3. Then, the second Zagreb index is 6*3*3 = 54.

MAPLE

seq(3*n*(n+3), n = 0 .. 45);
