  • Edge coloring of graphs of signed class 1 and 2


    Recently, Behr (2020) introduced a notion of the chromatic index of signed graphs and proved that for every signed graph (G, σ) it holds that ∆(G) ≤ χ′(G,σ) ≤ ∆(G) + 1, where ∆(G) is the maximum degree of G and χ′ denotes its chromatic index. In general, the chromatic index of (G, σ) depends on both the underlying graph G and the signature σ. In the paper we study graphs G for which χ′(G, σ) does not depend on σ. To this aim we...

  • Infinite chromatic games

    In the paper we introduce a new variant of the graph coloring game and a new graph parameter being the result of the new game. We study their properties and get some lower and upper bounds, exact values for complete multipartite graphs and optimal, often polynomial-time strategies for both players provided that the game is played on a graph with an odd number of vertices. At the end we show that both games, the new and the classic...

  • Equitable coloring of hypergraphs


    A hypergraph is equitablyk-colorable if its vertices can be partitioned into k sets/colorclasses in such a way that monochromatic edges are avoided and the number of verticesin any two color classes differs by at most one. We prove that the problem of equitable 2-coloring of hypergraphs is NP-complete even for 3-uniform hyperstars. Finally, we apply the method of dynamic programming for designing a polynomial-time algorithm to...

  • Global edge alliances in graphs

    In the paper we introduce and study a new problem of finding a minimum global edge alliance in a graph which is related to the global defensive alliance (Haynes et al., 2013; Hedetniemi, 2004) and the global defensive set (Lewoń et al., 2016). We proved the NP-completeness of the global edge alliance problem for subcubic graphs and we constructed polynomial time algorithms for trees. We found the exact values of the size of the...

    The neighbourhood of a vertexvof a graphGis the setN(v) of all verticesadjacent tovinG. ForD⊆V(G) we defineD=V(G)\D. A setD⊆V(G) is called a super dominating set if for every vertexu∈D, there existsv∈Dsuch thatN(v)∩D={u}. The super domination number ofGis theminimum cardinality among all super dominating sets inG. In this article weobtain closed formulas and tight bounds for the super dominating number oflexicographic product...

  • Weakly connected Roman domination in graphs

    A Roman dominating function on a graph G=(V,E) is defined to be a function f :V → {0,1,2} satisfying the condition that every vertex u for which f(u) = 0 is adjacent to at least one vertex v for which f(v)=2. A dominating set D⊆V is a weakly connected dominating set of G if the graph (V,E∩(D×V)) is connected. We define a weakly connected Roman dominating function on a graph G to be a Roman dominating function such that the set...

  • Interval incidence graph coloring

    In this paper we introduce a concept of interval incidence coloring of graphs and survey its general properties including lower and upper bounds on the number of colors. Our main focus is to determine the exact value of the interval incidence coloring number χii for selected classes of graphs, i.e. paths, cycles, stars, wheels, fans, necklaces, complete graphs and complete k-partite graphs. We also study the complexity of the...

  • New potential functions for greedy independence and coloring


    A potential function $f_G$ of a finite, simple and undirected graph $G=(V,E)$ is an arbitrary function $f_G : V(G) \rightarrow \mathbb{N}_0$ that assigns a nonnegative integer to every vertex of a graph $G$. In this paper we define the iterative process of computing the step potential function $q_G$ such that $q_G(v)\leq d_G(v)$ for all $v\in V(G)$. We use this function in the development of new Caro-Wei-type and Brooks-type...

  • The computational complexity of the backbone coloring problem for planar graphs with connected backbones

    In the paper we study the computational complexity of the backbone coloring problem for planar graphs with connected backbones. For every possible value of integer parameters λ≥2 and k≥1 we show that the following problem: Instance: A simple planar graph GG, its connected spanning subgraph (backbone) HH. Question: Is there a λ-backbone coloring c of G with backbone H such that maxc(V(G))≤k? is either NP-complete or polynomially...

  • Bondage number of grid graphs

    The bondage number b(G) of a nonempty graph G is the cardinality of a smallest set of edges whose removal from G results in a graph with domination number greater than the domination number of G. Here we study the bondage number of some grid-like graphs. In this sense, we obtain some bounds or exact values of the bondage number of some strong product and direct product of two paths.

  • Interval incidence coloring of bipartite graphs

    In this paper we study the problem of interval incidence coloring of bipartite graphs. We show the upper bound for interval incidence coloring number (χii) for bipartite graphs χii≤2Δ, and we prove that χii=2Δ holds for regular bipartite graphs. We solve this problem for subcubic bipartite graphs, i.e. we fully characterize the subcubic graphs that admit 4, 5 or 6 coloring, and we construct a linear time exact algorithm for subcubic...

  • On the partition dimension of trees


    Given an ordered partition Π={P1,P2,…,Pt} of the vertex set V of a connected graph G=(V,E), the partition representation of a vertex v∈V with respect to the partition Π is the vector r(v|Π)=(d(v,P1),d(v,P2),…,d(v,Pt)), where d(v,Pi) represents the distance between the vertex vv and the set Pi. A partition Π of V is a resolving partition of G if different vertices of G have different partition representations, i.e., for every...

  • Three-fast-searchable graphs


    In the edge searching problem, searchers move from vertex to vertex in a graph to capture an invisible, fast intruder that may occupy either vertices or edges. Fast searching is a monotonic internal model in which, at every move, a new edge of the graph G must be guaranteed to be free of the intruder. That is, once all searchers are placed the graph G is cleared in exactly |E(G)| moves. Such a restriction obviously necessitates...

  • On the size of identifying codes in triangle-free graphs


    In an undirected graph G, a subset C⊆V(G) such that C is a dominating set of G, and each vertex in V(G) is dominated by a distinct subset of vertices from C, is called an identifying code of G. The concept of identifying codes was introduced by Karpovsky, Chakrabarty and Levitin in 1998. For a given identifiable graph G, let gammaID(G) be the minimum cardinality of an identifying code in G. In this paper, we show that for any connected...

  • A graph coloring approach to scheduling of multiprocessor tasks on dedicated machines with availability constraints

    We address a generalization of the classical 1- and 2-processor unit execution time scheduling problem on dedicated machines. In our chromatic model of scheduling machines have non-simultaneous availability times and tasks have arbitrary release times and due dates. Also, the versatility of our approach makes it possible to generalize all known classical criteria of optimality. Under these stipulations we show that the problem...

  • A note on the strength and minimum color sum of bipartite graphs

    Siłą grafu G nazywamy najmniejszą liczbę całkowitą s, taką że istniej pokolorowanie grafu G, o minimalnej sumie przy użyciu kolorów {1,...,s}. W pracy pokazano, że w grafach dwudzielnych stopnia D zachodzi oszacowanie s <= ceil(D/2) + 1. Z obserwacji tej wynika algorytm wielomianowy do obliczania siły i sumy chromatycznej w grafach dwudzielnych stopnia co najwyżej 4.

  • Approximating the maximum 2- and 3-edge-colorable subgraph problems

    Dla ustalonej wartości parametru k>=2, problem maksymalnego podgrafu krawędziowo k-kolorowalnego polega na wskazaniu k rozłącznych skojarzeń w grafie prostym, a kryterium optymalizacji jest maksymalizacja całkowitej liczby użytych krawędzi. W pracy podano algorytmy 5/6- i 4/5-przybliżone odpowiednio dla przypadków k=2 i k=3, poprawiając wyniki znane z literatury.

  • Forwarding and optical indices of a graph

    W pracy rozstrzygnięto dwa problemy dotyczące komunikacji wszyscy-do-wszystkich w grafach. Stwierdzono, że dla wersji skierowanej problemu parametry ''pi'' (maksymalne obciążenie krawędzi) i ''w'' (parametr chromatyczny) nie muszą być w ogólności sobie równe. Dla wersji nieskierowanej problemu pokazano, że wyznaczenie wartości zarówno ''pi'', jak i ''w'', jest w ogólności problemem NP-trudnym.

  • Total outer-connected domination numbers of trees

    Niech G=(V,E) będzie grafem bez wierzchołków izolowanych. Zbiór wierzchołków D nazywamy zbiorem dominującym totalnym zewnętrznie spójnym jeżli każdy wierzchołek grafu ma sąsiada w D oraz podgraf indukowany przez V-D jest grafem spójnym. Moc najmniejszego zbioru D o takich własnościach nazywamy liczbą dominowania totalnego zewnątrznie spójnego. Praca m.in. zawiera dolne ograniczenie na liczbę dominowania totalnego zewnętrznie spójnego...

  • Easy and hard instances of arc ranking in directed graphs

    Artykuł dotyczy uporządkowanego kolorowania łuków grafów skierowanych. Problem polega na takim przyporządkowaniu liczb łukom digrafu, aby każda skierowana ścieżka łącząca dwa łuki o tej samej liczbie (kolorze) zawierała łuk o kolorze wyższym. Praca podaje liniowy optymalny algorytm dla pewnego szczególnego przypadku, oraz zawiera dowód, iż problem ten jest obliczeniowo trudny dla 3-dzielnych acyklicznych digrafów i stałej liczby...
