#### Abstract

A topological index is a numerical measure that characterises the whole structure of a graph. Based on vertex degrees, the idea of an atom-bond connectivity index was introduced in chemical graph theory. Later, different versions of the ABC index were created, and some of these indices were recently designed. In this paper, we present the edge version of the atom-bond connectivity index, edge version of the multiplicative atom-bond connectivity index, and atom-bond connectivity temperature () index for the line graph of subdivision graph of tadpole graph , ladder graph , and wheel graph . Numerical simulation has also been shown for some novel families of atom-bond connectivity index comparing the three types of indices which can be useful for QSAR and QSPR studies.

#### 1. Introduction

In this article, we have considered simple graphs, which are unweighted, undirected graphs that have no loops and multiple edges attached. Let be a simple graph, with vertex set and edge set . Suppose is an edge of , which connects the vertices and , then we denote and state that “ and are adjacent.” The degree of a vertex is the number of edges that are incident to it. Topological indices are the mathematical measures that correspond to the structure of any simple finite graph. They are invariant under the graph isomorphism. There are some famous degree-based topological indices, which are introduced and applied in chemical engineering, for instance, the Randic index (refer to Ali & Du [1], Li & Shi [2], and Shi [3] for more details). These indices are also significant in quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) and quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) (see [4, 5]).

The subdivision graph [6, 7] is the graph obtained from by replacing each of its edge by a path of length 2. In graph , if the corresponding edges share a vertex in , the line graph of a graph is considered as a graph with vertices of the edges in . Two vertices and are incident if and only if they have a common end vertex in . Estrada et al. [8] put forward a topological index named atom-bond connectivity index (briefly, ) aswhere and represent the degrees of the vertices and , respectively. Recent advances on index can be referred to in Das et al. [9], Lin et al. [10], Gao & Shao [11], and Bianchi et al. [12]. Referring to the end vertex degree and of edges and in a line graph of , Farahani [13] proposed the edge version of atom-bond connectivity, index. This idea is described in the following:where and are the degree of the edge and , respectively. The reader can find more information about index in References [14–18].

The multiplicative atom-bond connectivity index was introduced by Kulli in 2016 [19]. More information regarding the multiplicative atom-bond connectivity index may be found in references [20, 21]. Later, the edge version of the multiplicative atom-bond connectivity index [22] of a graph was introduced, and it is defined aswhere is the degree of the edge in .

The temperature of a vertex of a connected graph is defined by Fajtlowicz [23] aswhere is the degree of a vertex and is the size of a graph . Recently, Kahasy et al. [24] introduced a new index, known as the atom-bond connectivity temperature index. This index is defined as follows:where and are the temperature of the vertex and , respectively.

#### 2. Main Results

In 2011, Ranjini et al. calculated the explicit expression for the Shultz indices of the subdivision graphs of the tadpole, wheel, helm, and ladder graphs [25]. They also studied the Zagreb indices of line graphs of tadpole, wheel, and ladder graphs with subdivision in [26]. In 2015, Su & Xu calculated the general sum-connectivity indices and coindices of line graphs of tadpole, wheel, and ladder graphs with subdivision in [27]. In [28], Nadeem et al. computed and indices of the line graphs of these graphs by using the notion of subdivision. They also studied the and of these graphs [28]. Other studies on these include Rajasekar & Nagarajan [29] research on the location domination number of the line graph. Recently, Li &. Taylor [30] also studied the first Zagreb index and some Hamilton properties of the line graph.

A tadpole graph is the graph obtained by joining a cycle of vertices with a path of length . A ladder is obtained by taking the Cartesian product of two paths . A wheel graph or order composed of a vertex is called the hub, adjacent to all vertices of a cycle of the order .
