COMMENTS

The Matula-Goebel number of a rooted tree can be defined in the following recursive manner: to the one-vertex tree there corresponds the number 1; to a tree T with root degree 1 there corresponds the t-th prime number, where t is the Matula-Goebel number of the tree obtained from T by deleting the edge emanating from the root; to a tree T with root degree m>=2 there corresponds the product of the Matula-Goebel numbers of the m branches of T.

Number of entries in row n is A061775(n) (number of vertices).

Sum of entries in row n is A184161(n) (number of subtrees).

For the number of subtrees containing the root, see A206491.

FORMULA

There exist recursion formulas for the generating polynomial G(n)=G(n,x) of the subtrees with respect to the number of vertices. One introduces also the generating polynomial R(n)=R(n,x) of the root subtrees (subtrees containing the root) with respect to the number of vertices. There is a Maple program for R(n) and one for G(n). From G(n) one extracts the entries of the triangle.

EXAMPLE

T(7,2)=3 because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 7 is Y, having 3 subtrees with 2 vertices.

Row 3 is 3,2,1 because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 3 is the path tree  a - b - c, having 3 subtrees with 1 node each (a, b, c), 2 subtrees with 2 nodes each (ab, bc), and 1 subtree with 3 nodes (abc).
