Abstract: By using the concept of Perron vector, this paper
characterized the extremal graphs of all 2-trees with $n$ vertices
($n$ fixed) which have the second and the third largest spectral
radius, respectively. Particularly, for $n=6$, five 2-trees with 6
vertices were found whose spectral radii are strictly descent.

Key words: spectral radius, Perron vector, 2-trees, spectral radius, Perron vector
