COMMENTS

a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the phenylazomethine dendrimer G[n], defined pictorially in the Golriz et al. reference (Fig. 1). 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 M-polynomial of the dendrimer G[n] is M(G[n],x,y) = (24*2^n - 8)*x^2*y^2 + (24*2^n - 16)*x^2*y^3 + (12*2^n -12)*x^3*y^3 +4*x^3*y^4.

FORMULA

O.g.f.: 12*(11 + 2*x)/((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)).

E.g.f.: 12*(-13 + 24*exp(x))*exp(x).

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2).
