Abstract

Let G be a simple connected graph. The first and second Zagreb indices have been introduced as  vV(G) (v)2 M1(G) degG and M2(G)  uvE(G)degG(u)degG(v) , respectively, where degG v(degG u) is the degree of vertex v (u) . In this paper, we define a new distance-based named HyperZagreb as e uv E(G) . (v))2 HM(G)     (degG(u)  degG In this paper, the HyperZagreb index of the Cartesian product, composition, join and disjunction of graphs are computed.
