Sharp bounds for decompositions of graphs into completer-partite subgraphs

David A. Gregory, Kevin N. Vander Meulen
1996 Journal of Graph Theory  
If G is a graph on n vertices and r 2 2, w e let m,(G) denote the minimum number of complete multipartite subgraphs, with r or fewer parts, needed to partition the edge set, f(G).  ...  In determining m,(G), w e may assume that no two vertices of G have the same neighbor set. For such reduced graphs G, w e prove that m,(G) 2 log,(n + rl)/r.  ...  COVERS BY COMPLETE r-PARTITE SUBGRAPHS A graph G is determined by the n X k incidence matrix D of any of its covers (or decompositions) by complete r-partite subgraphs: two vertices of G are adjacent if  ...

Finding Bipartite Partitions on Co-Chordal Graphs [article]

Bochuan Lyu, Illya V. Hicks
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we show that the biclique partition number (bp) of a co-chordal (complementary graph of chordal) graph G = (V, E) is less than the number of maximal cliques (mc) of its complementary graph  ...  Then, an O[|V|(|V|+|E^c|)]-time heuristic is proposed by applying lexicographic breadth-first search. Either heuristic gives us a biclique partition of G with a size of mc(G^c)-1.  ...  Introduction The biclique partition number (bp) of a graph G is referred to as the least number of complete bipartite (biclique) subgraphs that are required to cover the edges of the graph exactly once  ...

Partitioning 3-edge-coloured complete bipartite graphs into monochromatic cycles

Richard Lang, Oliver Schaudt, Maya Stein
2015 Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics  
We show that any colouring with three colours of the edges of the complete bipartite graph K n,n contains 18 vertex-disjoint monochromatic cycles which together cover all vertices.  ...  The minimum number of cycles needed for such a covering is five, and we show that this lower bound is asymptotically true. This extends known results for complete graphs.  ...  Introduction Cycle partitioning complete graphs Given an arbitrary colouring of the edges of a graph G with r colours, we are interested in determining the smallest number of monochromatic cycles that  ...

The r-th iterated line graph L^r(G) of a graph G is defined by: (i) L^0(G) = G and (ii) L^r(G) = L(L^(r- 1)(G)) for r > 0, where L(G) denotes the line graph of G.  ...  The NP-hard Eulerian Steiner Subgraph problem takes as input a graph G and a specified subset K of terminal vertices of G and asks if G has an Eulerian (that is: connected, and with all vertices of even  ...  Moreover, from Lemma 11 we get that P1 t P2 is the partition of X defined by the subgraph Gt0 . 3. v? ∈ V(Gt0 ) holds, and V(Gt0 ) is a vertex cover of graph Gt . 4.  ...

The achromatic number of a graph

Frnak Harary, Stephen Hedetniemi
1970 Journal of Combinatorial Theory  
The concept of coloring a graph has been shown to be subsumed by that of an homomorphism.  ...  This led in [3] to the definition of a complete n-coloring of a graph G and suggested therefore a new invariant, which we now call the "achromatic number" 4,(G).  ...  V,,} of the set of points V of a graph G is a K-partition of order m if every induced subgraph (Vi> is complete.  ...
