On a Conjecture About the Randic Index


A conjecture of Delorme, Favaron and Rautenbach [DM 257 (2002) 29-38] about the Randic index of a graph, in relation to its order and minimum degree, is refuted by the AutoGraphiX 2 system. Moreover, a modified conjecture is derived from presumably extremal graphs obtained with that system.
