A vertex-magic total labeling is a bijection λ from V∪E to the set of consecutive integers {1,2,...,n+e} with the property that for every v∈V, λ(v)+∑w∈N(v)λ(vw)=h for some constant h. Such a labeling is strong if λ(V)={1,2,...,n}. In this paper, we prove first that the minimum degree of a strongly vertex-magic graph is at least two. Next, we show that if 2e≥10n2-6n+1, then the minimum degree of a strongly vertex-magic graph is at least three. Further, we obtain upper and lower bounds of any vertex degree in terms of n and e. As a consequence we show that a strongly vertex-magic graph is maximally edge-connected and hamiltonian if the number of edges is large enough. Finally, we prove that semi-regular bipartite graphs are not strongly vertex-magic graphs, and we provide strongly vertex-magic total labeling of certain families of circulant graphs. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.

A vertex-magic total labeling is an assignment of the integers 1, 2, ..., n + e to the vertices and the edges of G, so that at each vertex, the vertex label and the labels on the edges incident at that vertex, add to a fixed constant, called the magic number of G. Such a labeling is a-vertex consecutive magic if the set of the labels of the vertices is { a + 1, a + 2, ..., a + n }, and is b-edge consecutive magic if the set of labels of the edges is { b + 1, b + 2, ..., b + e }.

From theoretical point of view, an interconnection network can be modelled by a graph, where the vertices of the graph represent the nodes of the network and the edges of the graph represent connections between the nodes in the network. Fault tolerance is an important performance feature when designing a network, and the connectivity of the underlying graph is one of the measures of fault tolerance for a network. A graph is connected if there is a path between any two vertices of G. We say that G is t-connected if the deletion of at least t vertices of G is required to disconnect the graph. A graph with minimum degree delta is maximally connected if it is delta-connected. A graph is superconnected if its only minimum disconnecting sets are those induced by the neighbors of a vertex; a graph is said to be tightly superconnected if (i) any minimum disconnecting set is the set of neighbors of a single vertex; and (ii) the deletion of a minimum disconnecting set results in a graph with two components (one of which has only one vertex, another component is a connected graph). A (delta; g) - cage is a delta-regular graph with girth g and with the least possible number of vertices.

### Calculating the extremal number ex (v ; {C3, C4, ..., Cn})

(2006), p. 101-102**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**This paper introduces and analyzes a parallel method of simulated annealing. Borrowing from genetic algorithms, an effective combination of simulated annealing and genetic algorithms, called parallel recombinative simulated annealing, is developed. This new algorithm strives to retain the desirable asymptotic convergence properties of simulated annealing, while adding the populations approach and recombinative power of genetic algorithms. The algorithm iterates a population of solutions rather than a single solution, employing a binary recombination operator as well as a unary neighborhood operator. Proofs of global convergence are given for two variations of the algorithm. Convergence behavior is examined, and empirical distributions are compared to Boltzmann distributions. Parallel recombinative simulated annealing is amenable to straightforward implementation on SIMD, MIMD, or shared-memory machines. The algorithm, implemented on the CM-5, is run repeatedly on two deceptive problems to demonstrate the added implicit parallelism and faster convergence which can result from larger population sizes.**Description:**C1
