COMMENTS

For n >= 1, a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the tetrameric 1,3-adamantane TA[n]. The first Zagreb index of a simple connected graph is the sum of the squared degrees of its vertices. Alternately, it is the sum of the degree sums d(i) + d(j) over all edges ij of the graph. The pictorial definition of the tetrameric 1,3-adamantane can be viewed in the G. H. Fath-Tabar et al. reference.

The M-polynomial of the tetrameric 1,3-adamantane TA[n] is M(TA[n], x, y) = 6*(n+1)*x^2*y^3 + 6*(n-1)*x^2*y^4 + (n-1)*x^4*y^4.
