This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation. Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the polymer B[n,1], defined pictorially in the Bodroža-Pantić et al. reference (Fig. 4). a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the polymer B[n,2], defined pictorially in the Bodroža-Pantić et al. reference (Fig. 4). The first Zagreb index of a simple connected graph is the sum of the squared degrees of its vertices. Alternatively, it is the sum of the degree sums d(i) + d(j) over all edges ij of the graph. The M-polynomial of B[n,1] is M(B[n,1]; x,y) = 2*(2*n+1)*x^2*y^2 + 4*(n+1)*x^2*y^3 + (13*n-8)*x^3*y^3. The M-polynomial of B[n,2] is M(B[n,1]; x,y) = 2*(n+2)*x^2*y^2 + 8*n*x^2*y^3 + (11*n-6)*x^3*y^3.
