FORMULA

a(n) = 9n(n^2+4n-4).

G.f.: 9z^3(51-92z+63z^2-16z^3)/(1-z)^4.

The Hosoya polynomial of the cyclic phenylene with n hexagons is [n*t^n*(t^5+3t^4+5t^3+5t^2+3t+1) - n(t^8+t^7+t^6+t^5+2t^3+4t^2+8t)]/(t-1).

MAPLE

a := proc (n) options operator, arrow: 9*n*(n^2+4*n-4) end proc: seq(a(n), n = 3 .. 40);
