Abstract

The m-order connectivity index (G) m of a graph G is     1 2 1 1 2 1 ... ... 1 ( ) i i im m v v v i i i m d d d  G where 1 2 1 ... i i im d d d  runs over all paths of length m in G and i d denotes the degree of vertex i v . Also,        1 2 1 1 2 1 ... ... 1 ( ) i i im m v v v i i i ms d d d X G is its m-sum connectivity index. A dendrimer is an artificially manufactured or synthesized molecule built up from branched units called monomers. In this paper, the 4-order connectivity and 4-sum connectivity indices of tetrathiafulvalene dendrimers are computed.
