Sample Test 1 1 Are the two graphs shown in the picture isomorphic Iustify your claim G1 has 11 edges while G2 has 12 edges gt G1 and G2 are NOT isomorphic 2 State and prove the degree sum formula Sum of degrees 2 times the edges in G 2 do 2eG v E G Proof Summing degrees counts each edge twice since each edge has 2 endpoints and each edge connects 2 vertices W Explain how the degreesum formula may be used to prove that a mountain climber puzzlequot always has a solution If starting positions are vertices x1 and X2 then they have an odd degree Based on the sum of degree theorem one other vertex with an odd degree exists In the graph the only other odd degree vector is the peak 2 so a path from x1 x2 to z Z w 4 What is the number of edges in the ndimensional hypercube Edges in n hypercube 271

m n 6 Give a necessary and suf cient condition for a graph to be bipartite and outline the proof of your claim Bipartite graphs do not contain any oddlength cycles and the vertices can be split into 2 disjoint sets Proof Let G v e and v A U B such that A n B at 0 and that all edges 8 E E are such that e is of the form 1 b where a E E and b E E 7 State and outline the proof of Euler39s formula for

it mean that every map can be colored using four colors 4color theorem any map in plane can be colored using 4 colors in such a way that regions sharing a common boundary do not share the same color Yes every map can be colored using 4 colors 13 At least how many times do you need to lift your hand to draw the graph shown below Iustify your answer H l If more than 2 odd vertices in graph then more than 1 stroke is necessary Since the graph has 4 odd vertices which is greater than 2 more than 1 stroke will be needed Give a necessary and suf cient condition for the existence of an Eulerian cycle in a graph Outline the proof All vertices must have an even degree For which values of n does the complete graph Kquot have an Eulerian cycle For odd values of n each vertex of Kn has an even degree The maximum degree in a graph is d What can you say about its edge chromatic number Edge chromatic number fewest number of colors needed to color each edge of G e d or d 1 Based on Vizing39s theorem Grinberg39s theorem states that a planar graph that has a Hamilton circuit satis es the formula 2039 2w r5 0 Here riresp no is the number of regions that have i sides and lay inside resp

both of the edges incident to X must be part of any Hamilton circuit Rule 2 No proper sub circuit that is a circuit not containing all vertices can be formed when building a Hamilton circuit Rule 3 Once the Hamilton circuit is required to use two edges at a vertex X all other unused edges incident at X must be removed from consideration No Hamilton circuit because of sub circuits present 19 What is the chromatic number of a wheel graph with n vertices Based on parity of n vertices chromatic number 3 or 4 Ifn is even then 4 colors Ifn is odd then 3 colors 20 What is the chromatic polynomial of
