- Provides a systematic survey of a number of graph-theoretical matrices and highlights their possible uses
- Provides the latest developments in the overlapping fields of applied graph theory and theoretical chemistry
- Draws on the expertise of the best theoretical chemists in applied graph-theoretical methods in quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) and drug design
- Appeals to a broad audience from chemistry and mathematics to pharmacology and biology

**Graph-Theoretical Matrices in Chemistry** presents a systematic survey of graph-theoretical matrices and highlights their potential uses. This comprehensive volume is an updated, extended version of a former bestseller featuring a series of mathematical chemistry monographs. In this edition, nearly 200 graph-theoretical matrices are included.

This second edition is organized like the previous one—after an introduction, graph-theoretical matrices are presented in five chapters: *The Adjacency Matrix and Related Matrices, Incidence Matrices, The Distance Matrix and Related Matrices, Special Matrices, *and *Graphical Matrices*. Each of these chapters is followed by a list of references.

Among the matrices presented several are novel and some are known only to a few. The properties and potential usefulness of many of the presented graph-theoretical matrices in chemistry have yet to be investigated.

Most of the graph-theoretical matrices presented have been used as sources of molecular descriptors usually referred to as topological indices. They are particularly concerned with a special class of graphs that represents chemical structures involving molecules. Due to its multidisciplinary scope, this book will appeal to a broad audience ranging from chemistry and mathematics to pharmacology.
