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.
