 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the number of edges of the nanostar dendrimer NS2[n] from the Madanshekaf et al. reference. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 A. Madanshekaf and M. Moradi, The first geometric-arithmetic index of some nanostar dendrimers, Iranian J. Math. Chemistry, 5, Supplement 1, 2014, s1-s6. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-2). FORMULA From Colin Barker, May 15 2018: (Start) G.f.: x*(21 - 10*x) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)). a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) for n>2.
