Let G be a graph and S ⊆ V (G). For each vertex u ∈ S and for each v ∈ V (G) − S, we define d(u, v) = d(v, u) to be the length of a shortest path in 〈V (G)−(S−{u})〉 if such a path exists, and∞ otherwise. Let v ∈ V (G). We define wS(v) = ∑ u∈S 1 2d(u,v)−1 if v 6∈ S, and wS(v) = 2 if v ∈ S. If, for each v ∈ V (G), we have wS(v) ≥ 1, then S is an exponential(More)
The eccentricity of a vertex is the maximum distance from it to another vertex and the average eccentricity of a graph is the mean eccentricity of a vertex. In this paper we establish bounds on the mean eccentricity of a graph. We then examine the change in the average eccentricity when a graph is replaced by a spanning subgraph, in particular the two(More)

If G is a connected graph, then the distance between two edges is, by definition, the distance between the corresponding vertices of the line graph of G. The edge-Wiener index We of G is then equal to the sum of distances between all pairs of edges of G. We give bounds on We in terms of order and size. In particular we prove the asymptotically sharp upper(More)

The domatic number of a graph G is the maximum number of dominating sets into which the vertex set of G can be partitioned. We show that the domatic number of a random r-regular graph is almost surely at most r, and that for 3-regular random graphs, the domatic number is almost surely equal to 3. We also give a lower bound on the domatic number of a graph(More)

For a graph G with weight function w on the vertices, the total distance of G is the sum over all unordered pairs of vertices x and y of w(x)w(y) times the distance between x and y. A MAD tree of G is a spanning tree with minimum total distance. We develop a linear-time algorithm to find a MAD tree of a distancehereditary graph; that is, those graphs where(More)

If G is a connected graph with vertex set V , then the degree distance of G, D′(G), is defined as ∑ {u,v}⊆V (deg u + deg v) d(u, v), where degw is the degree of vertex w, and d(u, v) denotes the distance between u and v. We prove the asymptotically sharp upper bound D′(G) ≤ 14 nd(n− d) 2 +O(n7/2) for graphs of order n and diameter d. As a corollary we(More)
