  • The inverse degree index, also called inverse index, first attracted attention through numerous conjectures generated by the computer programme Graffiti. Since then, its relationship with other graph invariants has been studied by several authors. In this paper, we obtain new inequalities involving the inverse degree index, and we characterize graphs which are extremal with respect to them.
