abstract="Let $G$ be a simple graph with an orientation $\sigma$, which assigns to each edge a direction so that $G^\sigma$ becomes a directed graph. $G$ is said to be the underlying graph of the directed graph $G^\sigma$. In this paper, we define a weighted skew adjacency matrix with Rand\'c weight, the skew Randi\'c matrix ${\bf R_S}(G^\sigma)$, of $G^\sigma$ as the real skew symmetric matrix $[(r_s)_{ij}]$ where $(r_s)_{ij} = (d_id_j)^{-\frac{1}{2}}$ and $(r_s)_{ji} = -(d_id_j)^{-\frac{1}{2}}$ if $v_i \rightarrow v_j$ is an arc of $G^\sigma$, otherwise $(r_s)_{ij} = (r_s)_{ji} = 0$. We derive some properties of the skew Randi\'c energy of an oriented graph. Most properties are similar to those for the skew energy of oriented graphs. But, surprisingly, the extremal oriented graphs with maximum or minimum skew Randi\'c energy are completely different, no longer being some kinds of oriented regular graphs.",

abstract="Let $D$ be a digraph with skew-adjacency matrix $S(D)$. The skew energy of $D$ is defined as the sum of the norms of all eigenvalues of $S(D)$. Two digraphs are said to be skew equienergetic if their skew energies are equal. We establish an expression for the characteristic polynomial of the skew adjacency matrix of the join of two digraphs, and for the respective skew energy, and thereby construct non-cospectral, skew equienergetic digraphs on $n$ vertices, for all $n \geq 6$. Thus we arrive at the solution of some open problems proposed in [X. Li, H. Lian, A survey on the skew energy of oriented graphs, arXiv:1304.5707]. ",

abstract="A signed graph (or, in short, sigraph) $S=(S^u,\sigma)$ consists of an underlying graph $S^u :=G=(V,E)$ and a function $\sigma:E(S^u)\longrightarrow \{+,-\}$, called the signature of $S$. A marking of $S$ is a function $\mu:V(S)\longrightarrow \{+,-\}$. The canonical marking of a signed graph $S$, denoted $\mu_\sigma$, is given as $$\mu_\sigma(v) := \prod_{vw\in E(S)}\sigma(vw).$$ The line graph of a graph $G$, denoted $L(G)$, is the graph in which edges of $G$ are represented as vertices, two of these vertices are adjacent if the corresponding edges are adjacent in $G$. There are three notions of a line signed graph of a signed graph $S=(S^u,\sigma)$ in the literature, viz., $L(S)$, $L_\times(S)$ and $L_\bullet(S)$, all of which have $L(S^u)$ as their underlying graph; only the rule to assign signs to the edges of $L(S^u)$ differ. Every edge $ee'$ in $L(S)$ is negative whenever both the adjacent edges $e$ and $e'$ in S are negative, an edge $ee'$ in $L_\times(S)$ has the product $\sigma(e)\sigma(e')$ as its sign and an edge $ee'$ in $L_\bullet(S)$ has $\mu_\sigma(v)$ as its sign, where $v\in V(S)$ is a common vertex of edges $e$ and $e'$. The line-cut graph (or, in short, lict graph) of a graph $G=(V,E)$, denoted by $L_c(G)$, is the graph with vertex set $E(G)\cup C(G)$, where $C(G)$ is the set of cut-vertices of $G$, in which two vertices are adjacent if and only if they correspond to adjacent edges of $G$ or one vertex corresponds to an edge $e$ of $G$ and the other vertex corresponds to a cut-vertex $c$ of $G$ such that $e$ is incident with $c$. In this paper, we introduce dot-lict signed graph (or $\bullet$-lict signed graph} $L_{\bullet_c}(S)$, which has $L_c(S^u)$ as its underlying graph. Every edge $uv$ in $L_{\bullet_c}(S)$ has the sign $\mu_\sigma(p)$, if $u, v \in E(S)$ and $p\in V(S)$ is a common vertex of these edges, and it has the sign $\mu_\sigma(v)$, if $u\in E(S)$ and $v\in C(S)$. we characterize signed graphs on $K_p$, $p\geq2$, on cycle $C_n$ and on $K_{m,n}$ which are $\bullet$-lict signed graphs or $\bullet$-line signed graphs, characterize signed graphs $S$ so that $L_{\bullet_c}(S)$ and $L_\bullet(S)$ are balanced. We also establish the characterization of signed graphs $S$ for which $S\sim L_{\bullet_c}(S)$, $S\sim L_\bullet(S)$, $\eta(S)\sim L_{\bullet_c}(S)$ and $\eta(S)\sim L_\bullet(S)$, here $\eta(S)$ is negation of $S$ and $\sim$ stands for switching equivalence.",
