Note on Estrada and $L$Estrada indices of graphsG. H. Fath–Tabar, A. R. Ashrafi and I. GutmanDepartment of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, University of Kashan, Kashan 87317–51167, I. R.

Let $\lambda_1,\lambda_2,\ldots,\lambda_n$ be its eigenvalues and $\mu_1,\mu_2,\ldots,\mu_n$ its Laplacian eigenvalues. The Estrada index $EE$ of the graph $G$ is defined as the sum of the terms $e^{\lambda_i} , i=1,2,\ldots,n$ . In this paper the notion of Laplacian–Estrada index ($L$Estrada index, $LEE$) of a graph is introduced. It is defined as the sum of the terms $e^{\mu_i} , i=1,2,\ldots,n$ . The basic properties of $LEE$ are established, and compared with the analogous properties of $EE$ . In addition, the Estrada and $L$Estrada indices of some important classes of graphs are computed. Keywords: Spectrum (of graph), Laplacian spectrum (of graph), Estrada index, Laplacian–Estrada index Classification (MSC2000): 05C50 Full text of the article: (for faster download, first choose a mirror)
