### A Study of IC-coloring of Graphs

Sum-saturable

Let G = (V, E) be an undirected graph with p vertices and let K = p(p+1)/2. Let f be a bijective function from V to {1,2,...,p}. Then f is said to be a saturating labelling of G if, given any k (1 k K), there exists a connected subgraph H of G such that .

If a saturating labelling of G exists, then G is said to be sum-saturable.

IC-coloring

let G=(V, E) be an undirected graph and let f be a function from V to N. For each subgraph H of G, we define fs(H) = .Then f is said to be a IC-coloring of G if, given any k ( 1 k fs(G)) there exists a connected subgraph H of G such that fs(H)=k.

The IC-index of G is defined to be M(G) = max{fs(G) | f is an IC-coloring of G}

A T-graph be an undirected graph with p vertices consistingof vertex set V(T) = {V1, V2, … , Vp} and edge setE(T) = {V1V2, V2V3, V3V4, … , Vp-2Vp-1,VpV2}.

Theorem 2.1.1. The T-graph with order p=6 is not Sum-saturable.

proof.

• Assume T-graph with order p=6 is sum-saturable, then there is a saturating labeling f of T-graph.
• Given any k (1 k 21=K), there exists a connected subgraph H of T such that .
• Because K-1 and K-2 exists a connected subgraph H of T. So, number 1 and number 2 are labeling in end-vertex.
• Hence we have following three cases :

Theorem 2.1.2. The T-graph with order p=7 is not Sum-saturable.

proof.

• Assume T-graph with order p=7 is sum-saturable, then there is a saturating labeling f of T-graph.
• we given any k (1 k 28=K), there exists a connected subgraph H of T such that .
• Because K-1 and K-2 exists a connected subgraph H of T. So, number 1 and number 2 are labeling in end-vertex.
• Hence we have following three cases :

Theorem 2.1.3. The T-graph with order p=8 is not Sum-saturable.

proof.

• Assume T-graph with order p=8 is sum-saturable, then there is a saturating labeling f of T-graph.
• we given any k (1 k 36=K), there exists a connected subgraph H of T such that .
• Because K-1 and K-2 exists a connected subgraph H of T. So, number 1 and number 2 are labeling in end-vertex.
• Hence we have following three cases :

Remark.

We use the same way in Theorem 2.1.3, and we got the T-graph of order p 9 is not sum-saturable.

Conjecture 2.1.4.

Suppose that T is a tree of order p. If Δ(T) >

,then T is sum-saturable.

A rooted tree T is a complete n-ary tree, if each vertex in T except the leaves has exactly n children.

For each vertex v in T, if the length of the path from the root to v is L, then we say that v is on the level L.

If all leaves are on the same level h, then we call T a perfect complete n-ary tree with the hight h.

Theorem 2.2.1.

A perfect complete binary tree T is sum-saturable.

Proof.

Let h be the hight of T.

If h 2

Hence perfect complete binary trees with height h 2 are sum-saturable.

m(h+1) = 1 + n．m(h) < 2．n． m(h) log2m(h+1) < log2n+ log2m(h)+1,i.e. log2m(h+1)- log2m(h) < log2n +1< n

Theorem 3.1.1.

For every integer n 4, we have 2n-8 M(Kn-L) 2n-3, where L is a matching consisting of two edges.

Proof.

• Let V(Kn-L)={V1, V2, … , Vn}.
• We assign the vertexV1 is non-adjacent to the vertex Vn-1 and the vertex V2 is non-adjacent to the vertex Vn.
• We define f:V(Kn-L) N by f(Vi)=2i-1, for all i=1, 2, … ,n-2, f(Vn-1)=2n-2-2 and f(Vn)=2n-1-5.
• We claim that f is an IC-coloring of V(Kn-L), with

fs(Kn-L)= +(2n-2-2)+(2n-1-5)=2n-8.

• For any integer k [1, 2n-8], and consider the following three cases:

(i) k [1, 2n-2-1]

(ii) k [2n-2, 2n-1-3]

Let a=k-(2n-2-2), then 2 a 2n-2 -1.

(iii) k [2n-1-2, 2n-8]

Let b=k-(2n-1 -5), then 3 b 2n-1 -3.

We get 2n-8 M(Kn-L) 2n-3.

Theorem 3.1.2.

For every integer n 4, we have 2n-5 M(Kn-P3) 2n-4.

Proof.

• Let V(Kn-P3)={V1, V2, … , Vn}.
• We assign the vertexV1 is non-adjacent to the vertex Vn and the vertex V2 is non-adjacent to the vertex Vn.
• We define f:V(Kn-P3) N by f(Vi)=2i-1, for all i=1, 2, … ,n-1, and f(Vn)=2n-1-4.
• We claim that f is an IC-coloring of V(Kn-P3), with

fs(Kn-P3)= +(2n-1-4)=2n-5.

• For any integer k [1, 2n-5], and consider the following two cases:

(i) k [1, 2n-1 -1]

(ii) k [2n-1, 2n-5]

Let a=k-(2n-1-4), then 4 a 2n-1 -1.

We get 2n-5 M(Kn-P3) 2n-4.
