Questions about properties of and problems on graphs, discrete data structures that have the form of nodes connected by edges, that is networks.

Let $d_G(x,y)$ be the distance between the vertices $x,y \in V(G)$ for a connected graph $G.$ The characteristic path length is then defined as \frac{\sum_{x,y \in V(G)} d_G(x,y)}{n(n-1)} = \frac{\s …

I am not sure what bothers you but as I see it you are confused about the following two facts If a graph is connected then $e \geq n-1.$ If a graph has more than $e > \frac{(n-1)(n-2)}{2}$ then it …

Isomorphism formalizes the notion of equal graphs. For example on this figure you see three isomorphic graphs More formally, an isomorphism of graphs $G_1$ and $G_2$ is a bijection $f:V(G_1) \mapsto … answered Jan 2 '13 by Jernej The best way (in terms of laziness) is to use the freely available tool Sage which has the best support for graph theory. Example sage: G = graphs.PetersenGraph() sage: G.has_homomorphism_to(graphs … answered Oct 25 '13 by Jernej The answer is no. A counterexample is given by the following two graphs both having$(-1, -1, -1, -1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 …

Suppose you wish to compute the random graph $G(n,p)$ that is the graph with $n$ vertices where each edge is added with probability $p.$ Suppose you have a coin that gives tails with probability $p$ …

Let $R(s,t)$ be the least integer $k$ such that every graph on $k$ or more vertices contains either a $s$-clique or independent set of size $t.$ It turns out that this number is well defined (called …

There are no general algorithms for your problem but what one usually does (for graphs of small orders) is Use nauty to generate graphs satisfying some rough constraints (you can make nauty generat …

The short answer is no. No quick algorithm for this problem is known. A big open problem (for at least 50 years) in algebraic graph theory asks about the existence a regular graph of degree 57 orde …

Your thinking is correct. To verify your claim you can check this lecture notes on the probabilistic method by Matousek and Vondrak. More specifically check the proof of Theorem 3.3.1 stating that any …
