COMMENTS

A vertex subset in a tree is said to be independent if no pair of vertices is connected by an edge. The empty set is considered to be independent.

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.

Sum of entries in row n = A184165(n) = number of independent vertex subset (the Merrifield-Simmons index).

Sum(k*T(n,k), k>=0) = A212624(n) = number of vertices in all independent vertex subsets.

Number of entries in row n = 1 + number of vertices in the largest independent vertex susbset = 1 + A212625(n).

Last entry in row n = A212626(n) = number of largest independent vertex subsets.

With the given Maple program, the command P(n) yields the generating polynomial of row n.

FORMULA

Define R(n) =R(n,x)  (S(n)=S(n,x)) the generating polynomial of the  independent vertex subsets that contain (do not contain) the root of the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number n. Then R(1)=x, S(1)=1, R(the t-th prime) = x*S(t), S(the t-th prime) = R(t) + S(t); R(rs) = R(r)R(s)/x, S(rs) = S(r)S(s), (r,s>=2).

EXAMPLE

Row 5 is [1,4,3] because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 5 is the path tree R - A - B - C with independent vertex subsets: {}, {R}, {A}, {B}, {C}, {R,B}, {R,C}, {A,C}.
