Abstract:

The mathematical properties of the topological distance matrix are briefly surveyed and the numerous applications of this matrix to various branches of chemistry are then described. A detailed discussion is devoted to the Wiener index, defined as one half the sum of the entries in the distance matrix. This index has proved to be one of the most valuable topological indices in several different chemical contexts.
