COMMENTS

a(n) (for n >= 1) is also the Wiener index of the windmill graph D(5, n). The windmill graph D(m, n) is the graph obtained by taking n copies of the complete graph K_m with a vertex in common (i.e. a bouquet of n pieces of K_m graphs). The Wiener index of a connected graph is the sum of distances between all unordered pairs of vertices in the graph. The Wiener index of D(m, n) is (1/2)n(m-1)[(m-1)(2n-1)+1]. For the Wiener indices of D(3, n), D(4, n), and D(6, n) see A033991, A152743, and A180577, respectively. - Emeric Deutsch, Sep 21 2010
