In the present paper we show that the topology of the underlying graph determines the domain and deficiency indices of a certain associated minimal symmetric operator. We obtaine a criterion of simplicity for the minimal operator associated with the graph.

In the present work we consider the Schrödinger operator $\mathrm{H_{X,\alpha}}=-\mathrm{\frac{d^2}{dx^2}}+\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\alpha_n\delta(x-x_n)$ acting in $L^2(\mathbb{R}_+)$. We investigate and complete the conditions of self-adjointness and nontriviality of deficiency indices for $\mathrm{H_{X,\alpha}}$ obtained in [13]. We generalize the conditions found earlier in the special case $d_n:=x_{n}-x_{n-1}=1/n$, $n\in \mathbb{N}$, to a wider class of sequences $\{x_n\}_{n=1}^\infty$. Namely, for $x_n=\frac{1}{n^{\gamma}\ln^\eta n}$ with $\langle\gamma,\eta \rangle\in(1/2,\,1)\!\times\!(-\infty,+\infty)\:\cup\:\{1\}\!\times\!(-\infty,1]$, the description of asymptotic behavior of the sequence $\{\alpha_n\}_{n=1}^{\infty}$ is obtained for $\mathrm{H_{X,\alpha}}$ either to be self-adjoint or to have nontrivial deficiency indices.
