Adjacency and Incidence Matrix of a Soft Graph
Keywords:Soft set, Soft graph, Adjacency matrix, Incidence matrix
In the present paper we define the notion of adjacency matrix and incidence matrix of a soft graph and derive some results regarding these matrices. We show that some of the classical results of graph theory does not hold for soft graphs.
