 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Cases n=1 and n=2 correspond to degenerate prism graphs, but they fit the same (conjectured) linear recurrence as the other terms. LINKS Andrew Howroyd, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..200 Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Prism Graph Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Vertex-Induced Subgraph FORMULA a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 11*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) + 5*a(n-4) - 2*a(n-5) - a(n-6), for n > 6 (conjectured). a(n) = LucasL(n, 2) + 3*n*Fibonacci(n, 2) - 3*n + 1 (conjectured). - Eric W.
