Abstract

In $1994,$ degree distance  of a graph was introduced by Dobrynin
, Kochetova and Gutman. And Gutman proposed the Gutman index of a graph in $1994.$ In this paper, we introduce the concepts of  multiplicative version of degree distance and the multiplicative version of Gutman index of a graph. We find the sharp upper bound for the  multiplicative version of degree distance and multiplicative version of  Gutman index of cartesian product of two connected graphs. And we compute the exact value for the cartesian product of two complete graphs. Using this result, we prove that our bound is tight. Also, we obtain the sharp upper bound for the multiplicative version of degree distance and the multiplicative version of Gutman index of strong product of connected and complete graphs. And we observe the exact value for the strong product of two complete graphs. From this,  we prove that our bound is tight.
