Relations between Kirchhoff index and Laplacianûenergyûlike invariantA. Arsic, I. Gutman, K. CH. Das and K. XuFaculty of Science, University of Kragujevac, P. O.

R. China Abstract: The Kirchhoff index Kf and the Laplacian.energy. like invariant LEL are two graph invariants defined in terms of the Laplacian eigenvalues. If $\mu_1\geq \mu_2 \geq \cdots \geq \mu_{n1}>\mu_n = 0$ are the Laplacian eigenvalues of a connected nvertex graph, then $K f=n\sum_{i=1}^{n1} 1/\mu_i$ and $LEL=\sum_{i=1}^{n1}\sqrt{\mu_i}.$ We examine the conditions under which $Kf > LEL.$ Among other results we show that $Kf > LEL$ holds for all trees, unicyclic, bicyclic, tricyclic, and tetracyclic connected graphs, except for a finite number of graphs. These exceptional graphs are determined.
