Title




Mathematical results on Randić's Hindex and Hsequence


Author






Abstract




Mathematical formulae for Randić's Hsequence and Hindex in a Lotkaian framework are presented. We also present a variant of Randić's Hindex. We prove that the following assertions are equivalent: given two persons with the same Hirsch hindex: the Randić Hindex H1 of the first person is larger than H2, that of the second person, if and only if the Hsequence of the first person dominates that of the second person. These properties are equivalent with α1 < α2 (where αi ( i = 1,2) are the Lotka exponents of the two persons) and also equivalent with μ1 > μ2 (where μi ( i = 1,2) is the average number of citations per article of the two persons).
