 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the phenylacetylene dendrimer NSB[n] defined pictorially in the Yarahmadi references. 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 NSB[n] is M(NSB[n],x,y) = 9*2^n*x*y^4 + (24*2^n - 12)*x^2*y^2 + (48*2^n - 24)*x^2*y^3 + (15*2^n - 9)*x^3*y^3 + 3*2^n*x^3*y^4. From Bruno Berselli, Nov 16 2016: (Start) In general, this type of formula b(n) = k*2^n - k (where n>=0 and h, k are given constants) has: O.g.f.: (h - k - (h - 2*k)*x)/((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)); E.g.f.: (-k + h*exp(x))*exp(x); Linear recurrence: b(n) = 3*b(n-1) - 2*b(n-2); Signature of the recurrence: (3,-2).
