COMMENTS
a(n) is the second Zagreb index of the polyphenylene dendrimer G[n], defined pictorially in the Arif et al. reference (see Fig. 1, where G[2] is shown).
The second Zagreb index of a simple connected graph is the sum of the degree products d(i)d(j) over all edges ij of the graph.
The M-polynomial of the polyphenylene dendrimer G[n] is M(G[n]; x, y) = (56*2^n - 40)*x^2*y^2 + (48*2^n - 40)*x^2*y^3 +(36* 2^n - 36)*x^3*y^3 + 4*x^3 *y^4.

FORMULA
From Colin Barker, May 31 2018: (Start)
G.f.: 4*(40 + 129*x) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)).
a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) for n>1.
