Abstract

The eccentricity of a vertex is the maximum distance from it to any other vertex and the average eccentricity avec(G) of a graph G is the mean value of eccentricities of all vertices of G. In this paper we present some lower and upper bounds for the average eccentricity of a connected (molecular) graph in terms of its structural parameters such as number of vertices, diameter, clique number, independence number and the first Zagreb index. Also, we obtain a relation between average eccentricity and first Zagreb index. Moreover, we compare average eccentricity with graph energy, ABC index and index.
