Highly Discriminating Distance-based Topological Index

  title={Highly Discriminating Distance-based Topological Index},
  author={Alexandru T. Balaban},
A new topological index J (based on distance sums s i as graph invariants) is proposed. For unsaturated or aromatic compounds, fractional bond orders are used in calculating s i. The degeneracy of J is lowest among all single topological indices described so far. The asymptotic behaviour of J is discussed, e.g. when n ~ ~ in CnH2n+2, J ~ ~r for linear alkanes, and J ~ ** for highly branched ones.
