Using a majorization technique that identifies the maximal and minimal vectors of a variety of subsets of ℝ, we find upper and lower bounds for the Kirchhoff index K(G) of an arbitrary simple connected graph G that improve those existing in the literature. Specifically we show that, where d1 is the largest degree among all vertices in G, and R-1(G) is the general Randić index of G for α =-1. Also we show that, where dn is the smallest degree, λ2 is the second eigenvalue of the transition probability of the random walk on G,.

Abstract

Using a majorization technique that identifies the maximal and minimal vectors of a variety of subsets of ℝ, we find upper and lower bounds for the Kirchhoff index K(G) of an arbitrary simple connected graph G that improve those existing in the literature. Specifically we show that, where d1 is the largest degree among all vertices in G, and R-1(G) is the general Randić index of G for α =-1. Also we show that, where dn is the smallest degree, λ2 is the second eigenvalue of the transition probability of the random walk on G,.
