Abstract

The variable sum exdeg index of a graph G is defined as $SEI_a(G)=sum_{uin V(G)}d_G(u)a^{d_G(u)}$, where $aneq 1$ is a positive real number,  du(u) is the degree of a vertex u ∈ V (G). In this paper, we characterize the graphs with the extremum variable sum exdeg index among all the graphs having a fixed number of vertices and cut edges, for every a>1.
