ABSTRACT
The subgraph of a 5-connected graph G induced by the set of degree 5 vertices is said to be the 5-subgraph of G. An edge of a 5-connected graph is said to be 5-contractible if the contraction of the edge results in a 5-connected graph. A 5-connected graph with no 5-contractible edge is said to be contraction-critically 5-connected. We show that there are exact two graphs with order 5 which can be a component of the 5-subgraph of a contraction-critically 5-connected graph.

The n-dimensional hypercube Qn is bipancyclic; that is, it contains a cycle of every even length from 4 to 2n. In this paper, we prove that Qnâ€‰â€‰(nâ‰¥3) contains a 3-regular, 3-connected, bipancyclic subgraph with l vertices for every even l from 8 to 2n except 10.

Let G = (V, E) be a graph the atom-bond connectivity (ABC) index is defined as the sum of weights ((du + dv - 2 ) /dudv)1/2 over all edges uv of G, where du denotes the degree of a vertex u of G. In this paper, we determined a few structural features of the trees with minimal ABC index also we...

In a graph G = (V;E), a set D âŠ† V (G) is said to be a monopoly set of G if every vertex v 2 V âˆŠD has at least d(v)/2 neighbors in D. The monopoly size of G, denoted mo(G), is the minimum cardinality of a monopoly set among all monopoly sets in G. The set D âŠ† V (G) is an...

A graph G is called a fractional (k; n ' ;m)-critical deleted graph if any n ' vertices are removed from G the resulting graph is a fractional (k;m)-deleted graph. In this paper, we prove that for integers for each pair of non-adjacent vertices x, y of G, then G is a fractional (k; n '...

The set of all non-increasing non-negative integer sequences Ï€ = (d1, d2,...,dn) is denoted by NSn. A sequence Ï€ Îµ NSn is said to be graphic if it is the degree sequence of a simple graph G on n vertices, and such a graph G is called a realization of Ï€. The set of all graphic...

For an integer $$\ell$$ at least three, we prove that every Hamiltonian $$P_\ell$$ -free graph $$G$$ on $$n>\ell$$ vertices has cycles of at least $$\frac{2}{\ell }n-1$$ different lengths. For small values of $$\ell$$ , we can improve the bound as follows. If $$4\le \ell \le 7$$ , then $$G$$...

A graph G is said to be even if all vertices of G have even degree. Given a k-edge-coloring of a graph G, for each color iâˆˆZk={0,1,â€¦,k-1} let G(i) denote the spanning subgraph of G in which the edge-set contains precisely the edges colored i. A k-edge-coloring of G is said to be an...

Let G be a graph on n vertices and let H be a given graph. We say that G is pancyclic, if it contains cycles of all lengths from 3 up to n, and that it is H-f1-heavy, if for every induced subgraph K of G isomorphic to H and every two vertices u, v âˆˆ V ( K), dK( u, v) = 2 implies . In this...

Given a graph G and a function f : V(G) â†’ {0,1,2, ...}, a subset D of V(G) is called an f -dominating set of G if every vertex x outside D is adjacent to at least f (x) vertices in D. In this article we study a few graphical invariants relating to this concept.
