 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS For n>=2, a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the graph KK_n, defined as 2 copies of the complete graph K_n, with one vertex from one copy joined to two vertices of the other copy (see the Stevanovic et al. reference, p. 396). The first Zagreb index of a simple connected graph is the sum of the squared degrees of its vertices. Alternatively, it is the sum of the degree sums d(i) + d(j) over all edges ij of the graph. The M-polynomial of KK_n is M(KK_n; x,y) = (n-2)^2*x^{n-1}*y^{n-1}+2*(n-2)*x^{n-1}*y^n + (n-1)*x^{n-1}*y^{n+1} + x^n*y^n +2*x^n*y^{n+1}. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 E.
