 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the dendrimer molecule D[n] defined in the Ashrafi et al. reference. 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 the dendrimer molecule D[n] is M(D[n]; x,y) = 6*2^n*x^2*y^2 + 6(2*2^n - 3)*x^2*y^3 + 3*(2^n - 1)*x^3*y^3. LINKS Muniru A Asiru, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..700 A. R. Ashrafi, H.
