 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the nanostar dendrimer G[n], shown pictorially as NSD[n] in the Rostami et al. reference (Fig. 2). 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 the nanostar dendrimer G[n] is M(G[n];x,y) = (56*2^n - 48)*x^2*y^2 + (48*2^n - 44)*x^2*y^3 +(36* 2^n - 35)*x^3*y^3. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 E.
