Mathematics and Topology of Fullerenes presents a comprehensive overview of scientific and technical innovations in theoretical and experimental studies.
Topics included in this multi-author volume include: Clar structures for conjugated nanostructures, counting polynomials of fullerenes, topological indices of fullerenes, the wiener index of nanotubes, toroidal fullerenes and nanostars, C60 Structural relatives: a topological study, local combinatorial characterization of fullerenes, computation of selected topological indices of C60 and C80 Fullerenes via the Gap Program, 4valent- analogues of fullerenes, a detailed atlas of Kekule structures of C60.
This multi-author volume is targeted at advanced graduates and researchers working in carbon materials, chemistry and physics.
