Calculating Some Topological Indices of SiO\(_2\) Layer Structure

Fatima Farrukh, Sabeel- e- Hafi, Rashid Farooq, Mohammad R. Farahani


Topological indices are closely related to the toxicological, physicochemical, pharmacological etc. properties of a chemical compound. This paper focuses on calculating topological indices namely Randić index, sum-connectivity index, reciprocal Randić index, reduced second Zagreb index and reduced reciprocal Randić index of SiO\(_2\) layer structure for all values of \(p\) and \(q\).
