In the paper, we show that the incidence chromatic number of a complete k-partite graph is at most ∆+2 (i.e., proving the incidence coloring conjecture for these graphs) and it is equal to ∆+1 if and only if the smallest part has only one vertex.
In this paper we study the problem of interval incidence coloring of subcubic graphs. In  the authors proved that the interval incidence 4-coloring problem is polynomially solvable and the interval incidence 5-coloring problem is N P-complete, and they asked if χii(G) ≤ 2∆(G) holds for an arbitrary graph G. In this paper, we prove that an interval incidence 6-coloring always exists for any subcubic graph G with ∆(G) = 3.
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...
