Ordering signed graphs with large index

Maurizio Brunetti, Zoran Stanić

Abstract


The index of a signed graph is the largest eigenvalue of its adjacency matrix. We establish the first few signed graphs ordered decreasingly by the index in classes of connected signed graphs, connected unbalanced signed graphs and complete signed graphs with a fixed number of vertices.


Keywords


Adjacency matrix, largest eigenvalue, edge relocation, unbalanced signed graph, complete signed graph
