 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the nanostar dendrimer NSC5C6[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 NSC5C6[n] can be viewed in the A. R. Ashrafi et al. and in the M. Rostami et al. references. The M-polynomial of the nanostar dendrimer NSC5C6[n] is M(NSC5C6[n],x,y) = (4*2^n - 6)*x*y^3 + 4*2^n*x*y^4 + (4*2^n -6)*x^2*y^2 + (18*2^n - 28)*x^2*y^3 + 2*2^n*x^2*y^4 + (7*2^n - 10)*x^3*y^3 + 2^n*x^4*y^4.
