 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the nanostar dendrimer G[n] from the Ashrafi 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 G[n] is M(G[n]; x,y) = 4*x*y^4 + (18*2^n + 21)*x^2*y^2 + (36*2^n - 9)*x^2*y^3 + 3*x^2*y^4 + 9*x^3*y^4. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 A. R. Ashrafi, A.
