The definition of the hyper-Wiener index R (a graph invariant) proposed by Randic for acyclic graphs, has been extended to simple cycles. The extended version of R is consistent with the definition given by Randic for trees. Quantitative structure-property relationships were derived between boiling points and values of R in a series of cyclic and acyclic alkanes.
