(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A064513 Maximal number of nodes in graph of degree <= n and diameter 2 (another version). 1
2, 5, 10, 15, 24, 32, 50 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Comment from Allan C. Wechsler, Nov 22 2015: a(8) <= 65 by the Moore bound. Since 8 is not in {2,3,7,57}, we know a(8) <= 64. I don't know if we have any better upper bounds. This seems like a decent undergraduate research project. Pushing up the lower bound also.

a(2) = 5 is achieved by the 5-cycle.

a(3) = 10 is achieved by the Petersen graph.

It is known that a(8) >= 57.
