Abstract: This paper studied the relation between the Lapacian energy with the singular values of the Laplacian matrix and obtain some results on the bound of the Laplacian energy on a graph. Changes of the energy caused by deletion of edges and vertices of a graph were also studied. The results may help to have a better understanding of pi-electron energy in a molecule in theoretical chemistry.

Key words: Laplacian energy, singular values, Laplacian eigenvalues, Laplacian energy, singular values
