 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the second Zagreb index of the crystal structure cubic carbon CCC(n), defined in the Baig et al. and in the Gao et al. references. 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. For n>=2 the M-polynomial of the crystal structure cubic carbon CCC(n) is M(CCC(n); x,y) = 72*7^(n-2)*x^3*y^3 + 24*7^(n-2)*x^3*y^4 + (76*7^(n-2) - 16)*x^4*y^4/3.
