COMMENTS
a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the oxide network OX(n), defined pictorially in the Javaid et al. reference (Fig. 3, where OX(2) is shown) or in the Liu et al. reference (Fig. 6, where OX(5) is shown).
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 OX(n) is M(OX(n); x, y) = 12*n*x^2*y^4 + 6*n*(3*n - 2)*x^4*y^4 (n>=1).
a(n) + 1 is a square. - Muniru A Asiru, May 27 2018

FORMULA
From Colin Barker, May 26 2018: (Start)
G.f.: 24*x*(5 + 7*x) / (1 - x)^3.
a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>3.
