All wheels with two missing consecutive spokes are chromatically unique

F.M. Dong, Y.P. Liu
1998 Discrete Mathematics  
This paper shows that every wheel of order n, n >~ 6, with two missing consecutive spokes is chromatically unique. (~)  ...  Let W~ be the wheel of order n and let W(n,k) be the graph obtained from W~ by deleting all but k consecutive spokes, where n >/4 and 1 ~<k ~<n-1.  ...  Two graphs G and H are called chromatically equivalent if P(G, 2) = P(H, 2) , and a graph G is called chromatically unique if P(H,2)=-P(G, 2) implies that H is isomorphic to G for any graph H.  ...

The chromaticity of wheels with a missing spoke

G.L. Chia
1990 Discrete Mathematics  
Note also that those wheels with n -3 and n -4 consecutive missing spokes have been shown to be chromatically unique for IZ 2 5 and n Z= 6 respectively (see [2, Theorems 2, 31).  ...  Here we shall show that the graph U"" obtained by deleting a spoke from Wn+I is chromatically unique if 12 2 3 is odd. Note that U" U, and U, are all chromatically unique while U, is not (see [2] ).  ...  In proving the theorem, we are making use of the facts that U,,, is uniquely 3-colorable if n 3 3 is odd, and that the subgraph induced by any two color classes of the unique 3-coloring is a tree.  ...

The search for chromatically unique graphs — II

K.M. Koh, K.L. Teo
1997 Discrete Mathematics  
Special techniques and ideas used to produce new chromatically unique graphs or chromatically equivalence classes are highlighted.  ...  Some of the new and relevant results on chromatically equivalence class are also included.  ...  Let W(n, k) denote the graph (a broken wheel) obtained from W~ by deleting all but k consecutive spokes. Recall that for k ~< 5 the chromaticities have been decided (see [34] ).  ...

The thickness and chromatic number of r-inflated graphs

Michael O. Albertson, Debra L. Boutin, Ellen Gethner
2010 Discrete Mathematics  
In some instances the best possible bounds on both the chromatic number and thickness are achieved. We end with several open problems.  ...  Two plane drawings of the clone of P 3 are given in Figure 1 .  ...  Let T be a tree with at least two vertices and assume that all trees on fewer vertices than T are planar when cloned. Let w be a leaf of T with neighbor v.  ...

Finite dualities and map-critical graphs on a fixed surface

Jaroslav Nešetřil, Yared Nigussie
2012 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series B (Print)  
We prove that the class of planar graphs has no finite duality except for two trivial cases.  ...  Equivalently, our first result shows that for every planar core graph H (except K 1 and K 4 ) there are infinitely many minimal planar obstructions for H-coloring, whereas our later result gives a converse  ...  The edge between two consecutive rims is called a rim-edge. An edge connecting a hub to its rim is called a spoke.  ...

On preserving full orientability of graphs

Let d min (G) (d max (G)) denote the minimum (maximum) of the number of dependent arcs over all acyclic orientations of G.  ...  We call G fully orientable if G has an acyclic orientation with exactly k dependent arcs for every k satisfying d min (G) k d max (G).  ...  If we attach a cycle C of type (l 1 ), l 1 = n 3, to a single vertex graph G, then G C , denoted W n , is commonly known as the wheel with n spokes. Theorem 12. The wheel W n is fully orientable.  ...

Combinatorial and computational aspects of graph packing and graph decomposition

Raphael Yuster
2007 Computer Science Review  
In addition to being among the most fascinating purely combinatorial problems, they are often motivated by algorithmic applications.  ...  There are a considerable number of intriguing fundamental problems and results in this area, and the goal of this paper is to survey the state of the art. *  ...  A wheel on n ≥ 6 vertices and n − 1 spokes is chromatically 2-connected although it is not complete r-partite for any r. Bipartite graphs are only chromatically 1-connected.  ...
