On line graphs and the hamiltonian index

Ronald J. Gould
1981 Discrete Mathematics  
An extension of CI theorem of Chamhnd and Wall is obtained and, with it, a bound on the lamiltoniau index h(G) of a connected graph G (other than a path) is determined.  ...  With every nonempty graph G there AS associated a graph L(G), called the line graph of G, ha+ng the property thar *&ere exists a one-to-one correspondence between E(G) and V(L(G)) such that two vertices  ...  The graph (a) in Fig. 3 is such an example. We next note that Theorem 1 allows us to bound the hamiltonian index of any homogeneously traceable graph. @rm 3.  ...

A sharp lower bound on the signless Laplacian index of graphs with (κ,τ)-regular sets

Milica Andeelić, Domingos M. Cardoso, António Pereira
2018 Special Matrices  
A new lower bound on the largest eigenvalue of the signless Laplacian spectra for graphs with at least one (κ,τ)regular set is introduced and applied to the recognition of non-Hamiltonian graphs or graphs  ...  The paper also gives sufficient condition for a graph to be non Hamiltonian (or without a perfect matching).  ...  In this section we deduce lower bounds on the signless Laplacian index of the line graph of a graph with a Hamiltonian cycle or a graph with a perfect matching.  ...

Asymptotically sharpening the s-Hamiltonian index bound [article]

Sulin Song, Lan Lei, Yehong Shao, Hong-Jian Lai
2021 arXiv   pre-print
For a non-negative integer s≤ |V(G)|-3, a graph G is s-Hamiltonian if the removal of any k≤ s vertices results in a Hamiltonian graph.  ...  Consequently, when s ≥ 5, this new upper bound for the s-hamiltonian index implies that h_s(G) = o(ℓ(G)+s+1) as s →∞.  ...  Chartrand [9] showed that for every graph G ∈ G, the Hamiltonian index exists as a finite number, and the characterization of Hamiltonian line graphs (Theorem 1.1) by Harary and Nash-Williams implies  ...

On hamiltonian line-graphs

Gary Chartrand
1968 Transactions of the American Mathematical Society  
Let xtl and xi2 be lines of £p-*(G) which join «¿ to the distinct endpoints of a line y¡ of Lp~i(Gl).
