COMMENTS

a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the Wang's helicene-based nanostar DNS[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 DNS[n] can be viewed in the H. Shabani A. R. et al. reference (it is denoted DNS_{2}[n]).

The M-polynomial of the Wang's helicene-based dendrimer DNS[n] is M(DNS[n],x,y) = (2*2^n - 1)*x*y^3 + (6*2^n -4)*x^2*y^2 + (10*2^n - 12)*x^2*y^3 + (15*2^n - 16)*x^3*y^3.
