On topology versus geometry in molecules
Presented by Prof. Ante GRAOVAC
Type: Keynote Lecture
Graphs can be drawn in an infinite number of ways. However, by analysis of eigenvectors of adjacency and Laplacian matrices of molecular graphs one is able to get drawings which reproduce rather well geometries in some classes of molecules like fullerenes, nanotubes and their junctions. The results obtained up to now will be discussed and possible new routes to generalize graph drawing techniques will be discussed. This presentation is a result of collaboration with Istvan Laszlo (Budapest) and Tomaž Pisanski (Ljubljana).
