# Re: [Rdkit-discuss] edge matrix

```I am a novice when it comes to graph theory, but it seems like what is
wanted here is the adjacency matrix of the corresponding line graph (
http://mathworld.wolfram.com/LineGraph.html).```
```
I don't know how to do this in python, but if I use mathematica, it goes
like this

adjacencyMatrix = {{0, 1, 0, 0, 0}, {1, 0, 1, 1, 0}, {0, 1, 0, 0,
0}, {0, 1, 0, 0, 1}, {0, 0, 0, 1, 0}};

lineGraph = LineGraph[graph];
