A Continuous Analogue of the Girth Problem

Alon Amit, Shlomo Hoory, Nathan Linial
2002 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series B (Print)  
The best known bound for this problem is due to Biggs [2] . In Section 5 we establish a bound on the distributional analogue of the same problem.  ...  Since D=W(log n), the best known lower bound on L as a function of n and d is therefore: L \ 2`d − 1 1 1 − O 1 1 log n 2 22 . (17) GIRTH PROBLEM Here, we consider a distributional analogue (called L D  ...

The advantage of this transformation of the problem is that the rank-sum maximization problem for ideals of fixed size in Limon has a continuous analogue solvable by variational means.  ...  , the continuous analogue of the transformed Kleitman-West problem is to maximize r(S) = f, r(x) dx over all lower ideals S C L, having volume /’, where r(x) = >> x;.  ...

Walk-powers and homomorphism bound of planar graphs [article]

Reza Naserasr, Sagnik Sen, Qiang Sun
2015 arXiv   pre-print
As an extension of the Four-Color Theorem it is conjectured that every planar graph of odd-girth at least 2k+1 admits a homomorphism to PC_2k=(Z_2^2k, {e_1, e_2, ...  ...  Noting that PC_2k itself is of odd-girth 2k+1, in this work we show that if the conjecture is true, then PC_2k is an optimal such a graph both with respect to number of vertices and number of edges.  ...  This conjecture, for odd values of d was introduced in [N07] in relation to a question of J.  ...

Notes on Cops and Robber game on graphs [article]

Bojan Mohar
2017 arXiv   pre-print
These are some personal notes about the pursuit game of Cops and Robbers that I made starting in 2007. More old and new problems (and some solutions) will be added in future versions of these notes.  ...  This strategy works well in the continuous and in the discrete version. Lemma 3 . 3 If girth(G) ≥ 5, then c(G) ≥ δ(G).  ...  The natural question arises what is the largest d = d(g) for which there is a graph of genus at most g and girth at least 5.  ...

Girth of pancake graphs

2011 Discrete Applied Mathematics  
We find that the girth of each family of pancake graphs remains constant after some small threshold value of n.  ...  We consider four families of pancake graphs, which are Cayley graphs, whose vertex sets are either the symmetric group on n objects or the hyperoctahedral group on n objects and whose generating sets are  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank Dr. Laurie Heyer for her guidance, the referees for insightful comments, and the Davidson Research Initiative for its support.  ...

Mixed Cages [article]

G. Araujo-Pardo, C. Hernández-Cruz, J.J. Montellano-Ballesteros
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce the notion of a [z, r; g]-mixed cage. A [z, r; g]-mixed cage is a mixed graph G, z-regular by arcs, r-regular by edges, with girth g and minimum order.  ...  In this paper we prove the existence of [z, r ;g]-mixed cages and exhibit families of mixed cages for some specific values. We also give lower and upper bounds for some choices of z, r and g.  ...  Acknowledgment The authors wish to thank the anonymous referees of this paper.  ...

A device for 24 hour ambulatory monitoring of abdominal girth using inductive plethysmography

B P Reilly, M P Bolton, M J Lewis, L A Houghton, P J Whorwell
2002 Physiological Measurement  
We conclude that IP promises to be a useful and quantitative tool suitable for ambulatory monitoring of abdominal girth, a hitherto relatively unexplored symptom of IBS.  ...  The system was separately calibrated by placing the belts around a variable rectangular phantom and measuring the frequency of oscillation.  ...  IP therefore promised to be a solution, possibly without some of the problems encountered with the respiration work.  ...

The Distance-t Chromatic Index of Graphs

2013 Combinatorics, probability & computing  
The other is a bound of O(Δ^t/Δ) (as Δ→∞) for graphs of maximum degree at most Δ and girth at least 2t+1. The first bound is an analogue of Molloy and Reed's bound on the strong chromatic index.  ...  The second bound is tight up to a constant multiplicative factor, as certified by a class of graphs of girth at least g, for every fixed g > 3, of arbitrarily large maximum degree Δ, with distance-t chromatic  ...  Thus, it remains to prove the inequality (5). i:x i ≥a/2 x i > an 2 .

Symptoms of a distinct episode of acute pancreatitis are seldom elicited, and patients usually have symptoms of increasing abdominal girth, weight loss, and muscle wast- ing.  ...  PANCREATIC ASCITES Ascites may occur when pancreatic secre- tions collect within the abdomen after disrup- tion of the pancreatic duct or when a pseudocyst continuously leaks into the abdomen.  ... 

Lower Bounds on the Distortion of Embedding Finite Metric Spaces in Graphs

Y. Rabinovich, R. Raz
1998 Discrete & Computational Geometry  
The main technical lemma claims that the metric space induced by an unweighted graph H of girth g cannot be embedded in a graph G (even if it is weighted) of smaller Euler characteristic, with distortion  ...  In addition, we discuss the case χ(G) < χ(H) − 1, as well as some interesting higher-dimensional analogues. The proofs employ basic techniques of algebraic topology. 80 Y.
