Type: Oral presentation
The concepts of assortative and dissortative mixing in complex networks are important concepts that gives us an insight in the network robustness, infection spreading on networks, its temporal and other properties. In this paper, we define descriptors that enable us to refine these concepts thus giving us a better insight in network properties. Moreover, we transfer the knowledge obtained from this study to other scientific areas. We solve a purely mathematical problem proposed by Nikiforov and series of related problems. We define new molecular descriptors that supersede all benchmark descriptors proposed by the International Academy of mathematical Chemistry in prediction of heat capacity at P constant, enthalpy of vaporization, and standard enthalpy of vaporization. In this way we give a unified approach that connects complex network, structural graph theory and mathematical chemistry.
