Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A060202 Let G = complete graph on 4 vertices, create the sequence G, L(G), L(L(G)), L(L(L(G))), ... where each graph in this sequence is the line graph of the previous graph; a(n) is number of vertices of the n-th graph in this sequence. 0

COMMENTS

If G is k-regular, then L(G) is (2k-2)-regular. From this it is easy to get the formula for a(n).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..15.

FORMULA

a(0)=4 and for n >= 1 a(n) = 4 * product k=1...n (1+2^(k-2))

EXAMPLE

The line graph of the complete graph on 4 vertices has C(4,2) vertices so a(1) = 6.

MAPLE

for n from 0 to 30 do printf(`%d, `, 4*product(1+2^(k-2), k=1..n)) od:
