The eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix of a graph form the spectrum of the graph. The multiplicity of the eigenvalue zero in the spectrum of a graph is called nullity of the graph. Fan and Qian (2009) obtained the nullity set of n-vertex bipartite graphs and characterized the bipartite graphs with nullity n − 4 and the regular n-vertex bipartite graphs with nullity n − 6. In this paper, we study similar problem for a class of tripartite graphs. As observed the nullity problem in tripartite

In this direction, we obtain the nullity set of a class of n-vertex tripartite graphs and characterize these tripartite graphs with nullity n − 4. We also characterize some tripartite graphs with nullity n − 6 in this class.
