Adjacency matrices of zero-divisor graphs of integers modulo $n$

Matthew Young

Vol. 8 (2015), No. 5, 753–761
Abstract

We study adjacency matrices of zero-divisor graphs of n for various n. We find their determinant and rank for all n, develop a method for finding nonzero eigenvalues, and use it to find all eigenvalues for the case n = p3, where p is a prime number. We also find upper and lower bounds for the largest eigenvalue for all n.
