This paper studies two variants of defective acyclic coloring of planar graphs. For a graph $G$ and a coloring $\varphi$ of $G$, a 2CC transversal is a subset $E'$ of $E(G)$ that intersects every 2-colored cycle. Let $k$ be a positive integer. We denote by $m_k(G)$ the minimum integer $m$ such that $G$ has a proper $k$-coloring which has a 2CC tran...

We fully disprove a conjecture of Haythorpe on the minimum number of hamiltonian cycles in regular hamiltonian graphs, thereby extending a result of Zamfirescu, as well as correct and complement Haythorpe's computational enumerative results from [Experim. Math. 27 (2018) 426-430]. Thereafter, we use the Lov\'asz Local Lemma to extend Thomassen's in...

Recently, a conjecture due to Hendry was disproved which stated that every Hamiltonian chordal graph is cycle extendible. Here we further explore the conjecture, showing that it fails to hold even when a number of extra conditions are imposed. In particular, we show that Hendry's Conjecture fails for strongly chordal graphs, graphs with high connec...

The edge clique cover number ecc ( G ) of a graph G is the size of the smallest collection of complete subgraphs whose union covers all edges of G . Chen, Jacobson, Kézdy, Lehel, Scheinerman, and Wang conjectured in 2000 that if G is claw‐free, then ecc ( G ) is bounded above by its order (denoted n ). Recently, Javadi and Hajebi verified this conj...

We show that there is a constant C such that for any b < n/ln n − Cn/(ln n)3/2, Maker can win the Maker-Breaker Hamilton cycle game in n + Cn/√ln n steps.

We show Maker wins the Maker-Breaker perfect matching game in n/2 + o(n) turns when the bias is at least n/ln n − f(n)n/(ln n)5/4, for any f going to infinity with n and n sufficiently large (in terms of f).

We show that Maker wins the Maker-Breaker perfect matching game in $\frac{n}{2}+o(n)$ turns when the bias is at least $\frac{n}{\log{n}}-\frac{f(n)n}{(\log{n})^{5/4}}$, for any $f$ going to infinity with $n$ and $n$ sufficiently large (in terms of $f$).

We show that there is a constant C such that for any $b<\frac{n}{\ln{n}}-\frac{Cn}{(\ln{n})^{3/2}}$, Maker wins the Maker-Breaker Hamilton cycle game in $n+\frac{Cn}{\sqrt{\ln{n}}}$ steps.

In the eternal domination game, an attacker attacks a vertex at each turn and a team of guards must move a guard to the attacked vertex to defend it. The guards may only move to adjacent vertices and no more than one guard may occupy a vertex. The goal is to determine the eternal domination number of a graph which is the minimum number of guards re...

An eternal dominating set of a graph G is a set of vertices (or “guards”) which dominates G and which can defend any infinite series of vertex attacks, where an attack is defended by moving one guard along an edge from its current position to the attacked vertex. The size of the smallest eternal dominating set is denoted γ∞(G) and is called the ete...

An eternal dominating set of a graph $G$ is a set of vertices (or "guards") which dominates $G$ and which can defend any infinite series of vertex attacks, where an attack is defended by moving one guard along an edge from its current position to the attacked vertex. The size of the smallest eternal dominating set is denoted $\gamma^\infty(G)$ and...

We consider the well-studied cops and robbers game in the context of oriented graphs, which has received surprisingly little attention to date. We examine the relationship between the cop numbers of an oriented graph and its underlying undirected graph, giving a surprising result that there exists at least one graph $G$ for which every strongly con...

We study a variation of the classical pursuit-evasion game of Cops and Robbers in which agents are required to move to an adjacent vertex on every turn. We explore how the minimum number of cops needed to catch the robber can change when this condition is added to the rules of the game. We study this `Fully Active Cops and Robbers' game for a numbe...

A graph is uniquely Hamiltonian if it contains exactly one Hamiltonian cycle. In this note, we prove that claw-free graphs with minimum degree at least 3 are not uniquely Hamiltonian. We also show that this is best possible by exhibiting uniquely Hamiltonian claw-free graphs with minimum degree 2 and arbitrary maximum degree. Finally, we show that...

Let G = (V,E) be a graph. For each e ∈E(G) and v ∈V(G), let Le and Lv, respectively, be a list of real numbers. Let w be a function on V(G) ∪E(G) such that w(e) ∈Le for each e ∈E(G) and w(v) ∈Lv for each v ∈V(G), and let cw be the vertex colouring obtained by cw(v) = w(v) + ∑ₑ ∋vw(e). A graph is (k,l)-weight choo...

In 1990, Hendry conjectured that every Hamiltonian chordal graph is cycle
extendible; that is, the vertices of any non-Hamiltonian cycle are contained in
a cycle of length one greater. We disprove this conjecture by constructing
counterexamples on $n$ vertices for any $n \geq 15$. Furthermore, we show that
there exist counterexamples where the rati...

The 1-2-3 Conjecture, posed in 2004 by Karonski, Luczak, and Thomason, is as
follows: "If G is a graph with no connected component having exactly 2
vertices, then the edges of G may be assigned weights from the set {1,2,3} so
that, for any adjacent vertices u and v, the sum of weights of edges incident
to u differs from the sum of weights of edges...

Karonski, Luczak, and Thomason (2004) conjectured that, for any connected
graph G on at least three vertices, there exists an edge weighting from {1,2,3}
such that adjacent vertices receive different sums of incident edge weights.
Bartnicki, Grytczuk, and Niwcyk (2009) made a stronger conjecture, that each
edge's weight may be chosen from an arbitr...

In 2004, Karonski, Luczak, and Thomason conjectured that the edges of any
connected graph on at least 3 vertices may be weighted from the set {1,2,3} so
that the vertices are properly coloured by the sums of their incident edge
weights. A subsequent conjecture by Przybylo and Wozniak (2010) states that
weights from {1,2} suffice if one also weights...

If G is a finite group of order n, we denote by KG the complete Cayley graph on G. Let L be a multiset of group elements of G. If KG contains a subgraph whose edge labels are precisely L then we say that L is realizable as a G-subgraph. For an arbitrary finite group G, we present necessary and sufficient conditions for a multiset L to be realizable...

An edge-weighting vertex colouring of a graph is an edge-weight assignment such that the accumulated weights at the vertices yields a proper vertex colouring. If such an assignment from a set S exists, we say the graph is S-weight colourable. It is conjectured that every graph with no isolated edge is \1...

An edge-weighting vertex colouring of a graph is an edge-weight assignment such that the accumulated weights at the vertices yield a proper vertex colouring. If such an assignment from a set S exists, we say the graph is S-weight colourable. We consider the S-weight colourability of digraphs by defining the accumulated weight at a vertex to be the...

4 in the L
2 metric is a spanner with stretch factor 8Ö2(29+23Ö2)8\sqrt{2}(29+23\sqrt{2}).

We show that the Yao graph Y4 in the L2 metric is a spanner with stretch
factor 8(29+23sqrt(2)). Enroute to this, we also show that the Yao graph Y4 in
the Linf metric is a planar spanner with stretch factor 8.

Abstract A graph is uniquely hamiltonian if it contains exactly one hamiltonian cycle. In this note we prove that there are no r-regular uniquely hamiltonian graphs when r > 22. This improves upon earlier results of Thomassen. Key words: C-independent set, Lov¶asz Local Lemma, Uniquely hamiltonian
