COMMENTS

a(n) is the second Zagreb index of the nanostar dendrimer G[n] from the Ashrafi et al. reference.

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 the graph.

The M-polynomial of G[n] is M(G[n]; x,y) = 4*x*y^4 + (18*2^n + 21)*x^2*y^2 + (36*2^n - 9)*x^2*y^3 + 3*x^2*y^4 + 9*x^3*y^4.

FORMULA

From Michael De Vlieger, May 16 2018: (Start)

G.f.: 2*x*(377 - 466*x)/(1 - 3*x + 2*x^2).

a(n) = 3*a(n - 1) - 2*a(n - 2) for n > 2. (End)
