COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of vertices in the dendrimer nanostar G[n], defined pictorially in the Iranmanesh et al. reference (Fig. 1, where G[3] is shown) or in Alikhani et al. reference (Fig. 1, where G[3] is shown).

FORMULA

From Colin Barker, May 25 2018: (Start)

G.f.: 2*(11 - x) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)).

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

(End)

MAPLE

seq(42*2^n-20, n = 0 .. 40);
