A technique for counting a set 3/3 3.10: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 78 A technique for counting a set 3/3 3.10 It is shown that each claw H in G arises exactly once in this way. Let S be the set of vertices with degree 1 in H ; S is an independent set. The central vertex of H is already a common neighbor, so the six other edges from S reach distinct vertices. Thus G-V(H) is 2-regular. Since G has girth 5, G-V(H) must be a 6-cycle. This 6-cycle yields H when its vertices are deleted.

Fundamental Concept 79 Proposition: The minimum number of edges in a connected graph with n vertices is n- 1 . 3.13 Proof: By proposition 1.2.11, every graph with n vertices and k edges has at least n-k components. Hence every n -vertex graph with fewer than n -1 edges has at least two components and is disconnected. The contrapositive of this is that every connected n -vertex graph has at least n -1 edges. This lower bound is achieved by the path P n .

Theorem: Every loopless graph G has a bipartite subgraph with at least e(G)/2 edges. 1.3.19: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 82 Theorem: Every loopless graph G has a bipartite subgraph with at least e ( G )/2 edges. 1.3.19 Proof: Partition V ( G ) into two sets X , Y . Using the edges having one endpoint in each set yields a bipartite subgraph H with bipartition X , Y . If H contains fewer than half the edges of G incident to a vertex v , then v has more edges to vertices in its own class than in the other class, as illustrated bellow.
PowerPoint Presentation: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 83 Proof: 2/2 Moving v to the other class gains more edges of G than it loses . Using Iterative improvement approach When it terminates, we have d H ( v ) d G ( v )/2 for every v V ( G ) . Summing this and applying the degree-sum formula yields e ( H ) e ( G )/2 . Theorem: Every loopless graph G has a bipartite subgraph with at least e ( G )/2 edges. 1.3.19
Example1 1.3.20: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 84 Example 1 1.3.20 The algorithm in Theorem 1.3.19 need not produce a bipartite subgraph with the most edges, merely one with at least half the edges Local Maximum
Example2 1.3.20: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 85 Example 2 1.3.20 Consider the graph in the next page. It is 5-regular with 8 vertices and hence has 20 edges. The bipartition X ={ a,b,c,d } and Y ={ e,f,g,h } yields a 3-regular bipartite subgraph with 12 edges. The algorithm terminates here: switching one vertex would pick up two edges but lose three .

Example 1.3.20: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 87 Example 1.3.20 Nevertheless, the bipartition X ={ a,b,g,h } and Y ={ c,d , e,f } yields a 4-regular bipartite subgraph with 16 edges.

PowerPoint Presentation: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 92 Proof: 5/6 Moving a vertex of K n - k , k from the set of size k to the set of size n-k gains k-1 edges and loses n-k edges. The net gain is 2k-1-n , which is positive for 2 k>n+ 1 and negative for 2 k<n+ 1. Thus e ( K n-k , k ) is maximized when k is n / 2 or n / 2 . Theorem: The maximum number of edges in an n -vertex triangle free simple graph is n 2 / 4 1. 3.23 n-k k
PowerPoint Presentation: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 93 Proof: 6/6 The product is then n 2 /4 for even n and ( n 2 - 1 )/4 for odd n . Thus e ( G ) n 2 /4 . The bound is best possible . It is seen that a triangle-free graph with n 2 /4 edges is: K n /2 , n /2 . Theorem: The maximum number of edges in an n -vertex triangle free simple graph is n 2 / 4 1. 3.23

Adding a new vertex adjacent to vertices of degrees 1 and 0 yields a graph with degree sequence 2, 2, 1, 1, as shown below. Conversely, if a graph realizing 2, 2, 1, 1 has a vertex w with neighbors of degrees 2 and 1, then deleting w yields a graph with degrees 1, 0, 1. K 2 K 1 1 1 0 1 1 2 2

The only 1-element graphic sequence is d 1 =0. 1.3.31 Proof: 1/6 For n =1, the statement is trivial. For n >1, we first prove that the condition is sufficient . Give d with d 1 ….. d n and a simple graph G’ with degree sequence d’ For Example: We have: 1) d = 3 333 3221 2) G’ with d’ = 2223221 We show : d is graphic G’
Theorem. For n>1, an integer list d of size n is graphic if and only if d’ is graphic, where d’ is obtained from d by deleting its largest element and subtracting 1 from its next largest elements. The only 1-element graphic sequence is d1=0. 1.3.31: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 103 Theorem. For n >1, an integer list d of size n is graphic if and only if d’ is graphic, where d’ is obtained from d by deleting its largest element and subtracting 1 from its next largest elements. The only 1-element graphic sequence is d 1 =0. 1.3.31 Proof: 2/6 We add a new vertex adjacent to vertices in G’ with degrees d 2 -1,….., d +1 -1 . These d i are the largest elements of d after (one copy of ) itself , Note : d 2 -1,….., d +1 -1 need not be the largest numbers in d’ (see example in previous page ) G’ New added vertex d : d 1, d 2, … d n d’ : d 2 -1,….., d +1 -1 , … d n May not be the largest numbers

Fundamental Concept 104 Theorem 1.3.31 continue To prove necessity , 3/6 Given a simple graph G realizing d , we produce a simple graph G’ realizing d’ Let w be a vertex of degree in G , and let S be a set of vertices in G having the “desired degrees ” d 2 ,….., d +1 d : d 1, d 2, … d , d +1 , … d n S: vertices d 1 = w
Theorem 1.3.31: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 105 Theorem 1.3.31 Proof: continue 4/6 If N ( w )= S , then we delete w to obtain G’ . d : d 1, d 2, … d , d +1 , … d n Vertices, N ( w )= S i.e. They are connected to w d 1 = w Delete w than we have d’ : d 2 -1,….., d +1 -1 , … d n
Theorem 1.3.31: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 106 Theorem 1.3.31 Proof: continue 5/6 Otherwise, Some vertex of S is missing from N ( w ). In this case, we modify G to increase | N ( w ) S | without changing any vertex degree. Since | N ( w ) S | can increase at most times, repeating this converts G into another graph G* that realizes d and has S as the neighborhood of w . From G* we then delete w to obtain the desired graph G’ realizing d’ . d : d 1, d 2, … d , d +1 , … d n Vertices, N ( w ) S i.e. Some vertices are not connected to w. - We make them become connected to w without changing their degree. d 1 = w
Theorem 1.3.31: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept Theorem 1.3.31 Proof: continue 6/6 To find the modification when N ( w ) S , we choose x S and z S so that w z are connected and w x are not . We want to add wx and delete wz , but we must preserve vertex degrees. Since d ( x )> d ( z ) and already w is a neighbor of z but not x , there must be a vertex y adjacent to x but not to z . Now we delete { wz,xy } and add { wx,yz } to increase | N ( w ) S | . w z x y This y must exist. w z x y It becomes connected w

Theorem: If G and H are two simple graphs with vertex set V, then dG(v)=dH(v) for every vV if and only if there is a sequence of 2-switches that transforms G into H. 1.3.33: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 109 Theorem: If G and H are two simple graphs with vertex set V , then d G (v)=d H (v) for every v V if and only if there is a sequence of 2-switches that transforms G into H . 1.3.33 Proof: Every 2-switch preserves vertex degrees, so the condition is sufficient. Conversely, when d G (v)=d H (v) for all v V , we obtain an appropriate sequence of 2-switches by induction on the number of vertices , n . If n <3 , then for each d 1 ,…..,d n there is at most one simple graph with d(v i )=d i . Hence we can use n =3 as the basis step .
Theorem. 1.3.33 (Continue): Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 110 Theorem . 1.3.33 ( Continue ) Consider n 4 , and let w be a vertex of maximum degree , Let S ={ v 1 ,….., v } be a fixed set of vertices with the highest degrees other than w As in the proof of Theorem 1.3.31, some sequence of 2-switches transforms G to a graph G* such that N G* ( w ) =S , and some such sequence transforms H to a graph H* such that N H* ( w ) =S Since N G* ( w ) =N H* ( w ) , deleting w leaves simple graphs G’=G*-w and H’=H*-w with d G’ ( v ) =d H’ ( v ) for every vertex v
Theorem. 1.3.33 Continue: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 111 Theorem . 1.3.33 Continue By the induction hypothesis, some sequence of 2-switches transforms G’ to H’ . Since these do not involve w , and w has the same neighbors in G* and H* , applying this sequence transforms G* to H* . Hence we can transform G to H by transforming G to G* , then G* to H* , then (in reverse order) the transformation of H to H* .
Directed Graph and Its edges 1.4.2: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 112 Directed Graph and Its edges 1.4.2 A directed graph or digraph G is a triple : A vertex set V ( G ) , An edge set E ( G ) , and A function assigning each edge an ordered pair of vertices. The first vertex of the ordered pair is the tail of the edge The second is the head Together, they are the endpoints . An edge is said to be from its tail to its head . The terms “head” and “tail” come from the arrows used to draw digraphs.

Directed Graph and its edges 1.4.2: Graph Theory Ch. 1. Fundamental Concept 114 Directed Graph and its edges 1.4.2 When a digraph models a relation, each ordered pair is the (head, tail) pair for at most one edge. In this setting as with simple graphs, we ignore the technicality of a function assigning endpoints to edges and simply treat an edge as an ordered pair of vertices.
