In this paper, for a connected graph G and a real alpha (not equal to) 0, we define a new graph invariant sigma_alpha (G)-as the sum of the alphath powers of the normalized signless Laplacian eigenvalues of G. Note that sigma_1/2 (G) is equal to Randic (normalized) incidence energy which have been recently studied in the literature [5, 15]. We present some bounds on sigma_alpha(G) (alpha (not equal to) 0, 1) and also consider the special case alpha = 1/2.
