His article, "Algebraic Connectivity of Graphs", published in the Czechoslovak Math Journal in 1973, established the use of the eigenvalues of the Laplacian matrix of a graph to create tools for measuring algebraic connectivity in algebraic graph theory. Since then, this structure has become essential to large areas of research in flocking, distributed control, clustering, multi-robot applications and image segmentation.
