2 R B Bapat et al A Simple Method for Computing Resistance Distance 495 where d i is the degree = number of first neighbors of the vertex v i n Because L ij = n L ij = 0 for any graph G, i= j= detlg=0, i e, LG is singular The submatrix obtained from the Laplacian matrix L by deleting its ith row the ith column will be denoted by Li The submatrix obtained from the Laplacian matrix L by deleting its ith jth rows the ith jth columns will be denoted by Li, j, assuming that i j According to the famous matrixtree theorem see for instance [26 29] for any graph G for any i =,2,,n, detli=tg, 3 where tg is the number of spanning trees of G The eigenvalues of the Laplacian matrix are referred to as the Laplacian eigenvalues form the Laplacian spectrum of the respective graph The Laplacian spectral theory is a well elaborated part of algebraic graph theory its details can be found in numerous reviews, for instance in [27, 30, 3] Concerning chemical applications of Laplacian spectra see [32, 33] We label the Laplacian eigenvalues of the graph G by i, i =, 2,,n, so that 2 n Then, n is always equal to zero, whereas n differs from zero if only if the underlying graph G is connected We are interested in molecular graphs, which necessarily are connected Therefore in what follows it will be understood that n 0 Of the many known relations between the structure of a graph its Laplacian spectrum [26 28, 30 33] we mention here only two: n i= i = ntg 4 n Kf = n 5 i i= 3 A Determinantal Formula for r ij Theorem Let G be a connected graph on n vertices, n 3, i j n Let Li Li, j be the above defined submatrices of the Laplacian matrix of the graph G Then detli, j r ij = detli 6 In view of 3, formula 6 can be written also as detli, j r ij = tg This remarkably simple expression for the resistance distance was discovered by one of the present authors [25] Here we demonstrate its validity in a manner different from that in [25] In order to prove Theorem we need some preparations To each vertex v i of the graph G associate a variable x i consider the auxiliary function f x,x 2,,x n =x k x l 2 k,l with the summation going over all pairs of adjacent vertices v k, v l Then for i j, { r ij = sup f x,x 2,,x n x i =,x j = 0, 0 x k, } k =,2,,n 7 Formula 7 is a result known in the theory of electrical networks cf Corollary 5 on p 30 in Chapt 9 of the book [24] Its immediate consequences are the following equations which hold for k i, j: f x k = 2 l Γ k x k x l =0, 8 where Γ k denotes the set of first neighbors of the vertex v k Because the vertices of the graph G are labeled in an arbitrary manner, without loss of generality we may restrict our considerations to the special case i = n j = n Then, however, the mathematical formalism of our analysis will become significantly simpler For the sake of simplicity, denote the submatrix Ln,n by L write the Laplacian matrix of G as L B LG= C D
3 496 R B Bapat et al A Simple Method for Computing Resistance Distance Then 8 can be written as L x t = b t, 9 where x =x,x 2,,x b =b,b 2,,b Because x n = x n = 0, if the vertices v n v k are adjacent then b k =, whereas otherwise b k = 0, k =,2,,n 2 Let A = a ij be the adjacency matrix of the graph G Then, in view of x n =, x n = 0, in addition to 9 we have xbx n,x n t =x n,x n C x t = a n,i x i 0 i= x n,x n Dx n,x n t = d n By combining 9 we obtain f x,x 2,,x n Because =x,x n,x n LGx,x n,x n t = xl x t +x n,x n C x t + xbx n,x n t +x n,x n Dx n,x n t = xb t 2 xb t = i= i= a n,i x i + d n a n,i x i = we finally arrive at the relation k Γ n f x,x 2,,x n =d n x k, k Γ n x k, 2 which holds under the extreme value condition x n =,x n =0 The matrix LG is positive semidefinite If the graph G is connected, then the matrix L is positive definite Thus its inverse L exists Let the i, jentry of L be denoted by t ij Then, x t =L b t, implying x k = l Γ n t kl 3 Proof of Theorem As already explained, it is sufficient to demonstrate the validity of Theorem for i = n j = n By 2 3 we have under the extreme value condition f x,x 2,,x n =d n k Γ n t kl 4 l Γ n Let L k,l be the submatrix obtained by removing from L n the kth row the lth column Then, t kl = k+l detl k,l detl Thus by 4 f x,x 2,,x n 5 = d n k Γ n l Γ n k+l detl k,l detl By exping detln with respect to its last column we get detln=d n detl k+n detlnk,n, k Γ n where the submatrix Lnk,n is obtained by removing the kth row the n th column of Ln Further, exping detlnk,n with respect its last row, det Lnk, n = This yields d n detl = detln, l Γ n k Γ n l Γ n which substituted back into 5 becomes l+n detl k,l k+l detl k,l f x,x 2,,x n = detln detl 6 Theorem follows when 6 is substituted back into 7
4 R B Bapat et al A Simple Method for Computing Resistance Distance Applications The most obvious probably the most useful application of formula 6 is in a simple procedure for computing resistance distances If, 2,, n, 2,, are the eigenvalues of the submatrices Li Li, j, respectively, then n det Li= r= detli, j= r, 7 r= r, 8 r ij is readily obtained As far as algorithm complexity is concerned, the usage of 7 8 is not the most efficient way to compute resistance distances However, the method is extremely simple for writing a computer program provided, of course, that a software for matrix diagonalization is available Corollary For any connected nvertex graph, n 2, the Kirchhoff index, is expressed in terms of Laplacian eigenvalues as 5 Proof Suppose that the Laplacian characteristic polynomial of G, defined as ψg,λ =detλ I n LG, where I n is the unit matrix of order n, is written as ψg,λ = n k=0 k c k λ n k Then all the coefficients c k are nonnegative integers, inparticular [24, 26] c n = 0, c n = ntg, c f 4, c = n j= j n i= i n = ntg i= i The Kirchhoff index is defined via Then by Theorem, detli, j Kf = r ij = = c i< j i< j tg tg n = n i i= Formula 5 was reported earlier for details further references see [7, 33], but was deduced by a completely different way of reasoning Since r ij is a distance function [25], we obtain by Theorem : Corollary 2 If i, j,k are distinct to each other, then detli,k detli, j+detl j,k If i, j are distinct, then by the wellknown HadamardFisher inequality detli d i detli, j Thus from Theorem immediately follows Corollary 3 { r ij max, } d i d j In the below Theorem 2 we deduce a better lower, also an upper bound for the resistance distance From 9 we get bl b t = bx t = Then by 2, k= b k x k = k Γ n x k f x,x 2,,x n =d n bl b t 9 Evidently, if the vertices v n v n are adjacent then d n = bb t +, otherwise d n = bb t Let I be the unit matrix of order n 2 Then by 9 we obtain f x,x 2,,x n =b[i L ]b t 20 if the vertices v n v n are not adjacent Otherwise [ ] dn f x,x 2,,x n =b d n I L b t 2 As before, the eigenvalues of the matrix Li, j are denoted by 2 > 0 Then, of course, / i, i =,2,,n 2, are the eigenvalues of L Then from 20 2 by taking into account 7 follows: Theorem 2 Let i j If the vertices v i v j are not adjacent, then d i d i r ij
