Edge-graceful labeling

S.P. Lo (1985) introduced edge-graceful labeling.

A graph G of order p and size q is edge-graceful if the edges can be labeled by 1, 2, … , q such that the vertex sums are distinct (mod p).

Edge-graceful labeling

p=4 So vertex labels are 0, 1, 2, 3

q=5 So edge labels are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Theorem: (Lo 1985)

A necessary condition for a graph of order p and size q to be edge-graceful is that p divides

(q2+q-(p(p-1)/2)).

That is, q(q +1) ≡ p(p-1)/2 (mod p).

6

Corollary: No cycle of even order is edge-graceful.

Proof: In a cycle of order p we have q=p. By the Theorem, p divides q2+q-(p(p-1)/2)=p2+p-(p(p-1)/2). Therefore,

p(p-1)/2=kp for some positive integer k. This implies

p=2k+1.

7

Corollary: There is no edge-graceful tree of even order.

Proof: Let p=2k, then q=2k-1.

So(2k-1)(2k)-2k(2k-1)/2=2km.

Corollary: A complete graphs on p vertices is not edge-graceful, if p≡ 2 (mod 4).

Corollary: A complete bipartite graph Km,m

is not edge-graceful.

Corollary: Petersen graph is not edge-graceful.

Theorem: Lee, Lee and Murty (1988)

If G is a graph of order p≡ 2 (mod 4), then G is not

edge-graceful.

Conjecture:Kuan, Lee, Mitchem and Wang (1988)

Every odd order unicyclic graph is edge-graceful.

Conjecture: Sin-Min Lee (1989)

Every tree of odd order is edge-graceful.

Super edge-graceful labeling

J. Mitchem and A. Simoson (1994):

Consider a graph G with p vertices and q edges.

We label the edges with

±1, ±2,…,±q/2if q is even and with

0, ±1, ±2,…,±(q-1)/2if q is odd.

If the vertex sums are

±1, ±2,…,±p/2when p is even and

0, ±1, ±2,…,±(p-1)/2when p is odd,

then G is super edge-graceful.

J. Mitchem and A. Simoson (1994): If G is

super edge-graceful and

p | q, if q is odd, or

p | q+1, if q is even,

then G is edge-graceful.

Theorem: Super edge-graceful trees of odd order

are edge-graceful.

S.-M. Lee and Y.-S. Ho (2007): All trees of odd

order with three even vertices are

super edge-graceful.

S. Cichacz, D. Froncek, W. Xu and A. Khodkar (2008):

All paths Pnexcept P2and P4and all cycles

except C4and C6are super edge-graceful.

A. Khodkar, R. Rasi and S.M. Sheikholeslami (2008):

The complete graph Kn issuper edge-gracefulfor

all n ≥ 3, n ≠ 4.

A. Khodkar, S. Nolen and J. Perconti (2009):

All complete bipartite graphs Km,n are super edge-graceful

except for K2,2, K2,3, and K1,n if n is odd.

A. Khodkar (2009):

All complete tripartite graphs are super edge-graceful

except for K1,1,2.

A. Khodkar and Kurt Vinhage (2011):

Total stars and total cycles are super edge-graceful.

Lee, Seah and Tong (2011):

Total cycles (T(Cn)) are edge-graceful if and only if n is even.

The union of vertex disjoint 3-cycles is super edge-graceful.

Example: The union of fifteen vertex disjoint 3-cycles is

Super edge graceful.
