 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the second Zagreb index of the polymer B[n,1], defined pictorially in the Bodroza-Pantic et al. reference (Fig. 4). 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 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. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 O. Bodroza-Pantic, I. Gutman, and S. J.
