1 Preliminaries.
2 Distance in graphs and the Wiener index.
3 Vertex degrees and the Randic index.
4 Independent sets: Merrifield-Simmons index and Hosoya index.
5 Graph spectra and the graph energy. aIntroduction to Chemical Graph Theory is a concise introduction to the main topics and techniques in chemical graph theory, specifically the theory of topological indices. These include distance-based, degree-based, and counting-based indices. The book covers some of the most commonly used mathematical approaches in the subject. It is also written with the knowledge that chemical graph theory has many connections to different branches of graph theory (such as extremal graph theory, spectral graph theory). The authors wrote the book in an appealing way that attracts people to chemical graph theory. In doing so, the book is an excellent playground and general reference text on the subject, especially for young mathematicians with a special interest in graph theory. Key Features:
A concise introduction to topological indices of graph theory
Appealing to specialists and non-specialists alike
Provides many techniques from current research
