##### Abstract:

Research on the topological indices based on eccentricity of vertices of a molecular graph has been intensively rising recently. The eccentric connectivity index and the connective eccentricity index are belonging to this class of indices. In this paper we computed the exact value of the eccentric connectivity and the connective eccentricity indices of generalized Petersen graphs.

##### Keywords:

Connective eccentric index, Eccentric connectivity index, Generalized Petersen graphs
