The book describes a large class of molecular-graph-based structure descriptors
("topological indices") and a large number of their chemical applications. As the
authors say, their primary aim was "writing this book to present Topology as is it is
today" and "to make chemists familiar with the fascinating mathematical theory as
well as make mathematicians to understand chemical applications of Graph Theory".
Under "topology" (both in the title of the book and in this quotation) is meant
that part of molecular structure that is represented by means of molecular graphs.
The book is mainly concerned with matrices and matrix invariants associated with
molecular graphs and, of course, their chemical applications.
