 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the nanostar dendrimer D[n] from the Ghorbani et al. reference. 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 D[n] is M(D[n]; x,y) = 12*(2^n - 1)*x^2*y^2 + 3*(5*2^n - 8)*x^2*y^3 + 3*(2*2^n - 3)*x^3*y^3. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 E.
