The set S of distinct scores (outdegrees) of the vertices of a k-partite tournament T(X1, X2, · · · , X k) is called its score set. In this paper, we prove that every set of n non-negative integers, except {0} and {0, 1}, is a score set of some 3-partite tournament. We also prove that every set of n non-negative integers is a score set of some k-partite(More)
Graph theory is becoming increasingly significant as it is applied to other areas of mathematics, science and technology. It is being actively used in fields as varied as biochemistry (genomics), electrical engineering (communication networks and coding theory), computer science (algorithms and computation) and operations research (scheduling). The powerful(More)
The score of a vertex v in an oriented graph D is av = n−1+d + v −d − v , where d + v and d − v are the outdegree and indegree respectively of v and n is the number of vertices in D. The set of distinct scores of the vertices in an oriented graph D is called its score set. If a > 0 and d > 1 are positive integers, we show there exists an oriented graph with(More)
A k-digraph is an orientation of a multi-graph that is without loops and contains at most k edges between any pair of distinct vertices. We obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for a sequence of non-negative integers in non-decreasing order to be a sequence of numbers, called marks (k-scores), attached to vertices of a k-digraph. We characterize(More)
The set D of distinct signed degrees of the vertices in a signed graph G is called its signed degree set. In this paper, we prove that every non-empty set of positive (negative) integers is the signed degree set of some connected signed graph and determine the smallest possible order for such a signed graph. We also prove that every non-empty set of(More)
The imbalance of a vertex v in a digraph D is defined as a(v) = d + (v)−d − (v), where d + (v) and d − (v) respectively denote the out-degree and indegree of vertex v. The imbalance sequence of D is formed by listing vertex imbalances in nondecreasing order. We define a minimally cyclic digraph as a connected digraph which is either acyclic or has exactly(More)
