COMMENTS

a(n) is the second Zagreb index of the helm graph H[n] (n>=3).

The second Zagreb index of a simple connected graph g is the sum of the degree products d(i)d(j) over all edges ij of g.

The M-polynomial of the Helm graph H[n] is M(H[n]; x,y) = n*x*y^4 + n*x^4*y^4 + n*x^4*y^n. - Emeric Deutsch, May 11 2018

The helm graph H[n] is the  graph obtained from an n-wheel graph by adjoining a pendant edge at each node of the cycle. - Emeric Deutsch, May 11 2018

a(n) - 16*n + 1 is a square. - Muniru A Asiru, Jun 01 2018
