On a question by Erdős about edge-magic graphs

David Craft, Esther Hunt Tesar
1999 Discrete Mathematics  
We give some general results about edge-magic graphs and show precisely which complete graphs are edge-magic.  ...  A (p; q) graph is edge-magic if the vertices and edges can be labeled with distinct elements from the set 1; 2; : : : ; p + q in such a way that the sum is the same along any edge.  ...  We will begin to answer Erdős' question by determining precisely which complete graphs are edge-magic.  ...

Dense edge-magic graphs and thin additive bases

Oleg Pikhurko
2006 Discrete Mathematics  
So, we also study s(k, n), motivated by the above connections to edge-magic graphs and by the fact that a few known functions from additive number theory can be expressed via s(k, n).  ...  For example, our estimate implies a new bound on the maximum size of quasi-Sidon sets, a problem posed by Erdős and Freud [On sums of a Sidon-sequence, J. Number Theory 38 (1991) 196-205].  ...  We construct an edge-magic graph G on [n] with m − n edges. Label i ∈ [n] by l(i) := a i . The magic sum will be s := k + m.  ...

Dense Edge-Magic Graphs and Thin Additive Bases [article]

Oleg Pikhurko
2003 arXiv   pre-print
Also, applications to so-called edge-magic labellings of graphs are given.  ...  For example, our estimates of s(k,n) imply new bounds on the maximum size of quasi-Sidon sets, a problem posed by Erdos and Freud [J. Number Th.38 (1991) 196-205].  ...  If a n ≤ m, then M(n) ≥ m − n. Proof. We will construct an edge-magic graph G on [n] with m − n edges. Label i ∈ [n] by l(i) := a i . The magic sum will be s : = k + m.  ...

Eighty Years of RamseyR(3, k)…and Counting! [chapter]

Joel Spencer
2011 Ramsey Theory  
Decades go by without a hint of progress. What a delight when a problem is worked on over many many years with progress occurring incrementally until it finally succumbs.  ...  We deal throughout with graphs that are undirected and have neither loops nor multiple edges. We write G D .V; E/ where V; E are the sets of vertices and edges of G, respectively.  ...  By Erdős Magic there therefore existed such a triangle-free graph. Setting k D c 1 p n ln n this yielded R.3; k/ > n D c 2 k 2 ln 2 k, giving yet another new proof of Erdős 1961 gem.  ...

Expand and Contract: Sampling graphs with given degrees and other combinatorial families [article]

James Y. Zhao
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The utility of the method is demonstrated via several examples, with particular emphasis on sampling labelled graphs with given degree sequence, a well-studied problem for which existing algorithms leave  ...  For graphs with given degrees, with maximum degree O(m^1/4) where m is the number of edges, we obtain an asymptotically uniform sample in O(m) steps, which substantially improves upon existing algorithms  ...  a multigraph and obtain a simple graph by removing loops and multiple edges.  ...

Magic and antimagic H-decompositions

N. Inayah, A. Lladó, J. Moragas
2012 Discrete Mathematics  
By using the results on the sumset partition problem, we show that the complete graph K 2m+1 admits T -magic decompositions by any graceful tree with m edges.  ...  A decomposition of a graph G into isomorphic copies of a graph H is such that the sum of labels of edges and vertices of each copy of H in the decomposition is constant.  ...  This work was supported by the Spanish Research Council under project MTM2008-06620-C03-01 and the Catalan Research Council under project 2009SGR01387.  ...

Folk-Tale Networks: A Statistical Approach to Combinations of Tale Types

Julien D'Huy
2019 Journal of Ethnology and Folkloristics  
The centrality of each type also seems to depend more on its age than on how widespread it is.  ...  The network of tale types seems to take the form of a 'small world' with a few types serving as bridges between highly connected sets of tale types.  ...  The result shows that a lot of distinct ATU tale types in the complete graph are adjacent, i.e. are connected by an edge.  ...

2013 Proceedings of the 16th ACM international conference on Modeling, analysis & simulation of wireless and mobile systems - MSWiM '13  
We model the problem of channel assignment in mobile networks as one of temporal coloring (T-coloring), that is, coloring a timevarying graph.  ...  We begin by analyzing two simple algorithms called SNAP and SMASH that take diametrically opposite positions on colors vs re-assignments, and provide theoretical results on the ranges of α in which one  ...  A open question is to find the best K for a given α.  ...
