Abstract

Let G be a simple graph. The Hosoya polynomial of G is ( , ) , ( , ) = { , } ( ) xd u v H G x  u v V G where d(u,v) denotes the distance between vertices u and v . The dendrimer nanostar is a part of a new group of macromolecules. In this paper we compute the Hosoya polynomial for an infinite family of dendrimer nanostar. As a consequence we obtain the Wiener index and the hyper-Wiener index of this dendrimer.
