## Mathematical chemistry
## Additional recommended knowledgeMajor areas of research in mathematical chemistry include chemical graph theory, which deals with topics such as the mathematical study of isomerism and the development of topological descriptors or indices which find application in quantitative structure-property relationships; chemical aspects of group theory, which finds applications in stereochemistry and quantum chemistry; and topological aspects of chemistry. The term was coined in 1970s, although the history of the approach may be traced back into 18th century. Some of the early periodical publications specializing in the field are MATCH Communications in Mathematical and in Computer Chemistry, first published in 1975, and the Journal of Mathematical Chemistry, first published in 1987. The basic models for mathematical chemistry are molecular graph and topological index. ## See also
