### Adjacency matrix and eigenvalues of the zero divisor graph Γ(Zn)

#### Abstract

Let R be a commutative ring with non-zero identity and Z^∗(R) be the set of non-zero zero-divisors of R. The zero-divisor graph of R, denoted by Γ(R), is a simple undirected graph with all non-zero zero-divisors as vertices and two distinct vertices x, y ∈ Z^∗(R) are adjacent if and only if xy = 0. In this paper, the eigenvalues of Γ(Zn) for n = p^2q^2, where p and q are distinct primes, are investigated. Also, the girth, diameter, clique number and stability number of this graph are found.
