On the Acharya Index for Characterization of Chemical Graphs
Recently Shirkol et. al , have put forward a novel topological descriptor namely the Acharya Index of a molecular graph G in honor of Late. Prof. B. D. Acharya. In this paper, we carry out quantitative structure property analysis of 74 alkanes using the Acharya index. Further, we compare these results with the Wiener and terminal Wiener indices. Our study reveals some interesting results based on the predicting power of these topological descriptors.
