In this paper, we investigate circular chromatic number of Mycielski construction of graphs. It was shown in [20] that t th Mycielskian of the Kneser graph KG(m, n) has the same circular chromatic number and chromatic number provided that m + t is an even integer. We prove that if m is large enough, then χ(M t (KG(m, n))) = χ c (M t (KG(m, n))) where M t is(More)
A dynamic coloring of a graph G is a proper coloring such that for every vertex v ∈ V (G) of degree at least 2, the neighbors of v receive at least 2 colors. In this paper we present some upper bounds for the dynamic chromatic number of graphs. In this regard, we shall show that there is a constant c such that for every k-regular graph G, χ d (G) ≤ χ(G) + c(More)
It was conjectured in [S. Akbari, F. Khaghanpoor, and S. Moazzeni. Colorful paths in vertex coloring of graphs. Preprint] that, if G is a connected graph distinct from C 7 , then there is a χ(G)-coloring of G in which every vertex v ∈ V (G) is an initial vertex of a path P with χ(G) vertices whose colors are different. In [S. Akbari, V. Liaghat, and A.(More)
In an earlier paper, the present authors (2013) [1] introduced the alternating chromatic number for hypergraphs and used Tucker's Lemma, an equivalent combinatorial version of the Borsuk-Ulam Theorem, to show that the alternating chromatic number is a lower bound for the chromatic number. In this paper, we determine the chromatic number of some families of(More)
