 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the second Zagreb index of the oxide network OX(n), defined pictorially in the Javaid et al. reference (Fig. 3, where OX(2) is shown) or in Liu et al. reference (Fig. 6, where OX(5) is shown). 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 OX(n) is M(OX(n); x, y) = 12*n*x^2*y^4 + 6*n*(3*n - 2)*x^4*y^4 (n>=1). a(n)/8 + 1 is a square. - Muniru A Asiru, May 27 2018 LINKS Muniru A Asiru, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..5000 E.
