- Elsevier Science
The considerable benefits offered by topological indices in the investigation of chemical problems in science, medicine, and industry are highlighted. The volume records proceedings of the Harry Wiener Memorial Conference on the Role of Topology in Chemistry, held at the University of Georgia in March 2001, and serves as a fitting tribute to the chemical contributions of the late Harry Wiener.
- Focuses on the role played by topological indices in the description and characterisation of molecular species
- Records the proceedings of the Harry Weiner Memorial Conference on the Role of Topology in Chemistry, held at the University of Georgia in March 2001
- Along with a variety of other major topological indices, the Wiener index is discussed with particular reference to the powerful and much-used connectivity indices
