1 page 1 of Section 2.1 HPTR 2 GRPHS STION 1 INTROUTION basic terminology graph is a set of finitely many points called vertices which may be connected by edges. igs 1 3 show three assorted graphs. v1 v2 v3 v4 v5 v6 v7 v8 G H Z X Y IG 1 IG 2 IG 3 If there is more than one edge between two vertices (ig 4) then the graph is said to have multiple edges or parallel edges. n edge drawn from a vertex back to the same vertex is called a loop. See ig 5 and also vertex X in ig 3. IG 4 IG 5 IG 6 multiple edges loop The number of edges connected to a vertex is called the degree of the vertex. In ig 1, all vertices have degree 3; in ig 3, Y has degree 1, Z has degree 0 (it's an isolated vertex). loop is considered to contribute 2 to the degree of a vertex since the edge leaves the vertex and also returns. In ig 3, X has degree 3. If the number of edges is then the sum of the degrees of the vertices is 2. This holds because each edge contributes 2 to the total degree count. path is a sequence of connected edges (along which you can take a walk through the graph). y convention, a path can repeat a vertex (i.e., a path can cross itself) but can't repeat an edge (no backtracking). In ig 6, is a path between and ; other paths between and are., etc. Some paths between and are,, (which crosses itself at ). connected graph is one in which there is a path between any two different vertices (i.e., it's always possible to get from here to there). igs 1,4,5,6 are connected. ig 2 is not connected since it's impossible to get from any of,,, to any of,,g,h. ig 3 is not connected because it's impossible to get to Z from X and Y. The graph in ig 2 has two components, i.e., the graph is split into two connected pieces with no edges between the pieces. ig 3 also has two components. path that ends up where it started is called a cycle or a circuit. In ig 6, is a cycle; so is the figure eight. cycle can repeat a vertex (in fact it must repeat the first and last vertex) but not an edge. graph with no cycles is acyclic.

2 page 2 of Section 2.1 the adjacency matrix graph can be represented by an adjacency matrix where each entry indicates how many edges there are between vertices. ig 7 shows a graph and the corresponding adjacency matrix. The entry in row 3, col 4 is 1 because vertices v3 and v4 are connected by one edge. The entries along the diagonal are 0 because no vertex in the graph has a loop. The entry in row 1, col 3 is 2 because there are two edges between v and v v2 v4 v1 v3 v diagonal v6 IG 7 The adjacency matrix of a graph is symmetric, i.e., the entry in row i, col j is the same as the entry in row j, col i since both entries describe the number of edges between vertices v and v ; equivalently, row i and col i are identical. i j isomorphic graphs Given an adjacency matrix, there are many ways in which the corresponding graph can be drawn. or example, the adjacency matrix goes with all the graphs in ig 9. The graphs in ig 9 are called isomorphic since they have the same adjacency matrix. IG 9 six isomorphic graphs More generally, graphs don't have to be lettered in the same way to be called isomorphic.

In general: two graphs are isomorphic if you can match up the letters so that the two adjacency matrices are the same. PROLMS OR STION ind the adjacency matrix for this graph Z X Y 2. How can an isolated vertex (degree 0) be identified by looking at the adjacency matrix. 3. (a) Let S be the sum of the degrees of all the vertices in a graph. Show that S is always even. Suggestion. Look at the connection between S and the number of edges. (b) Use part (a) (among other things) to show that in any graph, there must be an even number of vertices of odd degree. Suggestion: Start like this. Let V,..., V be the vertices of even degree. 1 k Let Q,..., Q be the vertices of odd degree. (You want to show that n is even.) 1 n Let S be the sum of the degrees as in part (a). (c) Use part (a) to show that in a group of 25 quarrelsome people it isn't possible for each person to get along with exactly 5 others (assuming that getting along is a 2 way street so that if gets along with then gets along with ).

4 page 4 of Section (a good counting problem) To warm up, look at graphs with vertices,, and with no loops or multiple edges. There are 8 of them: (Yes the graph with 3 vertices and no edges counts.) (The second, third and fourth graphs are isomorphic but for this problem I'll count them as different.) Now consider graphs with ten vertices,..., (a) How many are there with no loops and no multiple edges. (b) How many are there with no loops but now allowing as many as 2 edges between each pair of vertices (c) How many are there with no multiple edges but now allowing loops, no more than one loop per vertex. 5. or each pair of graphs, decide if they are isomorphic or not.

5 page 1 of Section 2.2 STION 2.2 ULR YLS N ULR PTHS uler cycles cycle which includes every edge of the graph (exactly once) is called an uler cycle. In other words, with an uler cycle you can walk through the graph hitting every edge exactly once and end up back where you started. criterion for the existence of an uler cycle onsider a connected graph (there's no hope for a non connected graph). It has an uler cycle iff only if the degree of each vertex is even. In other words (1) If one or more vertex has odd degree then there is no uler cycle. (2) If all the vertices have even degree then there is an uler cycle. To see why (1) holds consider the graph in ig 1 where vertex Z has degree 3. To get an uler cycle you'd have to include edges e1, e2 and e3. If you arrive at Z say on e1, leave on say e2, and eventually arrive again on e3 then you can't leave Z; there are no more exits so you're stuck and can't continue the cycle. So a vertex of degree 3, or, more generally a vertex of odd degree, prevents uler cycles. rest of the graph e2 e3 e1 Z IG 1 The next algorithm will show that (2) holds since it actually finds an uler cycle if all the vertices have even degree. breakout algorithm Suppose a graph is connected and all vertices have even degree. I'll illustrate how to find an uler cycle using the graph in ig 2. Pick any vertex to start. egin traveling along successive edges, never repeating an edge. Whenever a choice is available, pick the alphabetically or numerically first vertex to be systematic. With this procedure, starting from vertex in ig 2 you get stuck You're stuck because all the edges at have been used; there are no more exits available. Note that you're stuck back at the initial vertex again. You can't get stuck anywhere else because every vertex has even degree so there is an exit for every entrance. So far you have the cycle (ig 3) but it doesn't include all edges yet and there is no place to go from. In this case, backtrack from the exit less until you find a vertex that does have exits, in this case, and break out (there must be a way to break out to the edges not included yet since the graph is connected). rom you have the side excursion which starts at and gets stuck back at so you can pick up where you left off: stuck

6 page 2 of Section 2.2 Note that when you break out, the "remaining" degree at each vertex is even so on the side trips you always get stuck back where you broke out. This is what makes the algorithm work. So far you have the cycle in ig 4 but not all edges are included yet so backtrack from the latest stuck position at and find a place from which to break out, namely from. stuck Now there's nowhere to break out meaning that you have traversed all the edges and you're finished. n uler cycle is (ig 5) IG 2 IG 3 IG 4 IG 5 example 1 You might get different uler cycles by starting at different vertices. In ig 2, starting from you get warning when you get back to here, do not back up and break out because you are not stuck at. There are still exits available from. You only break out when you are back where you started and stuck. This can be written neatly as Starting from you get, no breakout necessary. The cycles starting from and respectively happen to be the same but the one you get from is different. graph can have many uler cycles. warning To follow the spirit of this algorithm, remember to pick the first alphabetically of all vertices available. uler paths n uler path is a path which includes all edges (once each) but isn't a cycle (i.e., different starting and stopping points). Let G be a connected graph. Then G has an uler path iff G has precisely two vertices of odd degree (one to serve as the initial point with one more exit than entrance and one to serve as the end point with one more entrance than exit).

7 page 3 of Section 2.2 The breakout algorithm can be used to find an uler path if you start at one of the vertices of odd degree. or example, look at the graph in ig 6 where and have odd degree and the other vertices have even degree. If you begin say with you get I H G H G H I so an uler path is I H G H. IG 6 Note that when you start from one of the odd degree vertices you'll always get stuck at the other one: you can't get stuck at the initial vertex since it always has one more exit than entrance and you can't get stuck at one of the even degree vertices since they always have as many exits as entrances. nd when you break out, the remaining degree at each vertex is even so on the side trips you always get stuck back where you broke out. This makes the algorithm work. example 2 The graph in ig 7 has four vertices of odd degree (,,,). So it doesn't have an uler cycle or an uler path. warning IG 7 or small graphs it may be easy to find an uler cycle by inspection. ut the problems and the exams want you to use the breakout algorithm because it works automatically, even in large graphs that defy inspection.

Suggestion: Represent each room by a vertex, let the great outdoors (the "outside" room) be another vertex, Q, and draw an edge for each door between rooms. 3.

9 page 1 of Section 2.3 STION 2.3 SPNNING TRS definition of a tree graph which is connected and acyclic (no cycles) is called a tree. ig 1 shows some trees and ig 2 shows some non trees. IG 1 Three trees Not connected Has a cycle Not connected and has a cycle IG 2 Three non trees spanning trees Let G be a connected graph. spanning tree for G is a tree, built with edges from G and connecting all the vertices of G. Think of it as a skeleton for G, containing all of G's vertices but usually with fewer edges (since G may have cycles but a skeleton doesn't). very connected graph has a spanning tree (usually more than one). If G is already a tree then G is its own spanning tree; otherwise a spanning tree for G has fewer edges than G. ig 3 shows a connected graph (which is not a tree) along with several of its spanning trees. graph that isn't connected doesn't have a spanning tree. graph G some spanning trees for G IG 3 a spanning tree algorithm There are two popular ways to construct a spanning tree for a connected graph starting from an arbitrary initial vertex. breadth first dd all the vertices directly connected by an edge to the initial vertex. Then for each of those newly added vertices in (alphabetical) turn, add all vertices directly connected that are not yet in the tree. nd so on. depth first dd one vertex directly connected by an edge to the initial vertex. If there is more than one possibility, choose the first alphabetically to be systematic. Then to that newly added vertex add one vertex (the first alphabetically) directly connected that is not yet in the tree. nd so on. If there is no way to grow the tree from the last vertex added, backtrack to the next to last and grow again. If necessary backtrack all the way to the initial vertex.

10 page 2 of Section 2.3 The breadth first search grows a spanning tree by sending as many tentacles as possible out through the graph simultaneously. The depth first search grows a spanning tree by sending one tentacle out through the graph. I'll illustrate the algorithm by constructing some spanning trees for the graph in ig 4. example 1 Here's a breadth first search starting from in ig 4. round 1 egin with. ach of,, is connected to so add them to the tree (ig 5 shows two versions of the spanning tree). round 2 Look at. Vertex isn't in the tree yet and is connected to so add. Look at. Vertex G is not yet in the tree and is connected to so add G. Look at. Vertices and H are not yet in the tree and are connected to so add them. Now that all the vertices are in the tree, stop. ig 5 shows two versions of the spanning tree. G H G round 1 H round 2 G H Spanning tree for graph in ig 4 ig 4 IG 5 example 2 ig 6 shows the breadth first tree (two versions) starting from in ig 4. ig 7 shows the breadth first search starting from in ig 4 G H H G H G IG 6 IG 7

11 page 3 of Section 2.3 example 3 Here's a depth first search starting from in ig 4 (repeated below). round 1 Start at. ach of,, is connected to. Pick one of them, say, the first alphabetically, and add it to the tree (ig 8). Now start at and look at all the vertices, and, connected to but not in the tree yet. Pick one of them, say, the first alphabetically, and add it to the tree. Now start at. None of the remaining vertices is connected to so backtrack to and look again. warning My version of the algorithm backtracks to the latest pick, in this case, not. o it that way so that we'll all get the same answer. round 2 rom add, then and then G. You're stuck at G now so backtrack to round 3 rom add and then H and you're finished (ig 8). G H round 1 G round 2 H round 3 IG 4 again IG 8 example 4 ig 9 shows the depth first search starting from in ig 4. ig 10 shows the depth first search starting from G in ig 4. G H G H IG 9 IG 10 connection between the number of vertices and number of edges in a tree tree has one more vertex than edge, i.e., (1) V = + 1 It follows that in a graph, if V +1 then the graph can't be a tree. On the other hand, non trees can have this property too so if a graph does have V = + 1 the graph is not necessarily a tree. See problem 7(b).

12 page 4 of Section 2.3 why (1) holds Look at the tree in ig 11. Imagine growing it (ig 12) with the depth first spanning tree algorithm. IG 11 2 vertices 3 vertices 4 vertices 1 edge 2 edges 3 edges STP 1 STP 2 STP 3 etc Growing the tree in ig 11 IG 12 You start (ig 12, step 1) with one less edge then vertex, namely with V = 2, = 1. s the tree grows, at each stage, you join a new vertex to the growing tree, i.e., you add one more edge and one more vertex. So you continue to have one less edge than vertex. So that's what you have when the tree is fully grown. example 5 Suppose a graph has 12 vertices and 15 edges. Then it can't be a tree because V +1. Suppose a graph has 12 vertices and 11 edges. It may or may not be a tree. PROLMS OR STION y inspection (forget fancy algorithms) decide how many spanning trees each graph has. (a) (b) 2.

14 page 1 of Section 2.4 STION 2.4 PLNR GRPHS definition of a planar graph ig 1 shows two edges crossing as opposed to ig 2 where four edges have common endpoint T and no edges cross. planar graph is one which can be drawn (redrawn if necessary) to not have crossing edges. The graph in ig 2 is planar. The graph in ig 1 is also planar because it can be redrawn (ig 3) to avoid edges crossing. The graph in ig 4 is planar because it can be redrawn so that no edges cross (ig 4). P Q S R P Q T S R P Q S R IG 1 IG 2 IG 3 IG 4 IG 4 showing that a graph is non-planar I'll show that the graph in ig 5 is not planar by showing (in a systematic fashion) that it can't be redrawn without edges crossing. egin by drawing the largest circuit possible; ig 6 shows one which includes all the vertices. I still have to put in edges,,. Suppose is drawn inside (ig 7). Then must go outside to avoid crossing (ig 7). ut now can't be drawn without either crossing inside or outside. So ig 5 is nonplanar. warning IG 5 IG 6 IG 7 IG 7 It is not convincing (especially on an exam) to try to show that a graph is nonplanar by poking at its edges and simply declaring that they can't be redrawn without crossing. If you try to redraw, it must be with this systematic approach. n ad hoc approach may not be convincing to the reader. faces of a planar graph planar graph divides the plane into disjoint regions called faces. One of them is the "outside" of the graph called the unbounded face or exterior face. The other faces are interior or bounded faces. ig 8 shows a planar graph with 4 faces; face IV is the unbounded face. ig 9 has 2 faces; II is the unbounded face. If edge is added to ig 9 as shown in ig 10, the new graph still has 2 faces. IV I II II II I I III IG 8 IG 9 IG 10 uler's theorem (1) In any planar connected graph, V - + = 2. In other words, number of vertices - number of edges + number of faces = 2.

15 page 2 of Section 2.4 Note that the in (1) includes the external face. or the particular instance in ig 11, V = 5, = 7, = 4 (3 interior faces, 1 exterior face) V - + = = 2 why (1) holds IG 11 Let G be a planar connected graph with V vertices (ig 12 gives an example). onsider a spanning tree for G (ig 13). The tree has V vertices, V - 1 edges and one face (the unbounded face). So (1) holds for the spanning tree since in the tree, V - + = V - (V-1) + 1 = 2 Now add edges to the tree to get G back again. ach time you add an edge (ig 14) the number of vertices stays the same, the number of edges goes up by 1 and the number of faces goes up by 1. So during the growth process, (1) continues to be true and so it holds at the end of the process for G itself. IG 12 IG 13 IG 14 Going from tree to G complete graphs graph which contains one edge between each pair of vertices is called complete. The complete graph with n vertices is called K (ig 15). n K 3 K 4 K 5 ig 15 Some complete graphs bipartite and complete bipartite graphs graph consisting of two sets of vertices so that edges go only from one set to the other, with no edges within each set, is called bipartite (ig 16). IG 16 Two bipartite graphs graph is complete bipartite if every vertex in one set is joined by one edge to every vertex in the other set. In that case, if one set contains m vertices and the other set contains n vertices, the graph is called K (same as K ) (ig 17). m,n n,m

16 page 3 of Section 2.4 K 2,2 K 4,1 (alias K 1,4 ) K 3,2 (alias K 2,3 ) K 3,3 IG 17 Some complete bipartite graphs the famous nonplanar graphs K 3,3, K 5 and beyond The graphs K and K are nonplanar. urthermore each is a dividing line 5 3,3 between planar and nonplanar in the following sense: K, K, K are planar; K, K,... are non planar K is planar if m < 3 or n < 3 and nonplanar if m,n both are 3. or example, K 2,2, K 2,3, K 2,100 are planar. K 3,3, K 3,4, K 4,4, K 4,100 are nonplanar. why this holds I already showed that K 3,3 is nonplanar (go back to ig 5 and the paragraph above it). Similarly (see problem 8) it can be shown that K 5 is nonplanar. The "earlier" versions are planar: ig 18 shows K m,2 redrawn without edges crossing. ig 18 shows K 4 redrawn without edges crossing... IG 18 K redrawn IG 18 K redrawn m,2 4 The later complete bipartite graphs, like K 4,3, K 5,3,..., and the later complete graphs, like K, K,..., are nonplanar because they contain K and K 6 7 3,3 5 respectively as a subgraph and any graph which contains a nonplanar subgraph must itself be nonplanar. graphs homeomorphic to K 5 and K 3,3 Look at the graph in ig 19. It is not K because the "extra" vertex Q was added 5 which splits edge into Q and Q. ut ig 19 is called homeomorphic to K. If Q 5 is removed and edges Q and Q merged into the single edge then it becomes K. 5 Similarly, ig 20 is not K but it is homeomorphic to K because if the extra 3,3 3,3 vertices P, S, R are removed and edges merged, it would become K. 3,3

17 page 4 of Section 2.4 Q S P R homeomorphic to K 5 homeomorphic to K 3,3 IG 19 IG 20 More generally, graphs G 1 and G 2 are called homeomorphic if one of them can be turned into the other by removing one or more vertices of degree 2 (like P, S, R in ig 20)) and merging edges. ny graph homeomorphic to K 5 or K 3,3 is also non planar. footnote Why does the definition of homeomorphic insist that the extra vertices be of degree 2? If we allow higher degree extras the new graph can become planar.or example, the graph in ig 21 is K with extra vertices of degree 4 5 (see P, Q, R, S, T). ut the ig 21 graph is planar and K is not planar. 5 We don't want a planar graph to be homeomorphic to a non-planar graph. This never happens if you stick to extra vertices of degree 2. So we make the definition accordingly. The definition is designed to make the following theorem hold. P T Q S R IG 21 Kuratowski's theorem (characterizing nonplanar graphs) graph is nonplanar if and only if it contains as a subgraph either K or K or something homeomorphic to one of them. 5 3,3 Part of the proof of Kuratowski's theorem is easy. ny graph which contains K 5 or K or something homeomorphic to one of them is nonplanar because any graph 3,3 which contains a nonplanar subgraph must itself be nonplanar. The other half of the proof is very long and is omitted. warning K's theorem does not say that every non planar graph contains K 3,3 or K 5. (fter all, the graph in ig 19 is non planar and contains neither K 3,3 nor K 5.) It says that every non planar graph contains K 3,3 or K 5 or a homeomorphic copy of one of them. example 1 The graph in ig 22 is not K 5 (because of the multiple edges between and Q). ut it contains K 5 as a subgraph so it's nonplanar.

18 page 5 of Section 2.4 ig 23 is not K (because of Z). It doesn't contain K as a subgraph. ut it is 5 5 homeomorphic to K so it's nonplanar. 5 ig 24 is not K and does not contain K as a subgraph. ut it does contain a 5 5 subgraph (the one in ig 23) which is homeomorphic to K so it's nonplanar. 5 Q Z IG 22 IG 23 IG 24 ontains K Homeomorphic to K ontains a graph homeomorphic to K example 2 Show that the graph in ig 25 is nonplanar by finding a subgraph homeomorphic to K 3,3 or K. 5 The graph can't contain K 5 or something homeomorphic to K 5 since it doesn't have five vertices of degree 4 or more. So look for a buried K. 3,3 Vertex is connected to,,. So I'll look for two more vertices connected to,,. Vertex can be connected to via, to via I, and directly to (ig 26). Vertex H can be connected to via J and G, directly to, and to through J (ig 26). ut using J twice makes it an extra vertex whose degree is more than 2 so ig 26 is not homeomorphic to K. 3,3 The degree 2 requirement in the definition of homeomorphism means that in this search process a vertex can't be used as an extra more than once. I tried re routing H to via instead of J and G, leaving J for the H to part. ut then is used twice. No good. Then I gave up on H and tried J instead. Vertex J is connected to via G, to via H, and directly to. ig 27 is homeomorphic to K 3,3 and it's a subgraph of ig 25. J G I H J H G I I G H J IG 25 IG 26 IG 27 Not homeomorphic to K homeomorphic to K 3,3 3,3 Note that ig 27 is a subgraph of ig 25 and with respect to the subgraph, the extra vertices G, H, I, have degree 2 so the subgraph is homeomorphic to K 3,3. It's irrelevant that with respect to the original graph, G, H, I, have degree 3.

19 page 6 of Section 2.4 the dual graph If G is a planar connected graph then G has a dual graph G* constructed as follows. (1) In every face of G, including the unbounded face, place a vertex of G*. If the face is named P then it's convenient to name the vertex P also. (2) If edge e in G is on the boundary between faces P and Q, draw edge e* in G* joining vertices P and Q. In other words, faces in G correspond to vertices in G*, and vertices in G* are joined by an edge if the corresponding faces in G have a common boundary. It's easier to understand with an example. ig 28 shows a planar connected graph; ig 29 is its dual. original graph faces P, Q, R dual vertices P, Q, R edge 4 on boundary between faces P, Q edge 4* joining vertices P, Q edge 1 on boundary between faces P, R edge 1* joining vertices P, R edge 5 on boundary between faces Q, R etc. 2 3 P 1 4 R 6 Q 5 3* edge 5* joining vertices Q, R 2* 1* P 4* R Q 5* 6* IG 28 Graph G IG 29 Graph G* warning In ig 28, edge 2 is a boundary between face P and the unbounded face R. on't forget edge 2* in the dual. The dual should have an edge for each edge in the original. urthermore if you find the dual of G* the result will be the dotted graph in ig 29, namely G. So G** = G. In general, if G is a planar connected graph, then G and G* are duals of each other, i.e., G** = G. igs 30 and 31 show another graph and its dual. dge 3 in ig 30 is considered to be a boundary between face Q and itself and gives rise in G* to an edge 3* from vertex Q to itself, i.e., to a loop. 3* 1 3 P 2* Q P 2 Q 1* IG 30 Graph G IG 31 Graph G*
