The PI index of phenylenes
- 87 Downloads
The Padmakar–Ivan (PI) index is a graph invariant defined as the summation of the sums of n eu (e|G) and n ev (e|G) over all the edges e = uv of a connected graph G, i.e., PI(G) = ∑ e∈E(G)[n eu (e|G) + n ev (e|G)], where n eu (e|G) is the number of edges of G lying closer to u than to v and n ev (e|G) is the number of edges of G lying closer to v than to u. An efficient formula for calculating the PI index of phenylenes is given, and a simple relation is established between the PI index of a phenylene and of the corresponding hexagonal squeeze.
