Motivated by a recent result of Walter [Electron. J. Combin. 16 (2009), R94] concerning the chromatic polynomials of some hypergraphs, we present the chromatic polynomials of several (non-uniform) mixed hypergraphs. We use a recursive process for generating explicit formulae for linear mixed hypercacti and multi-bridge mixed hypergraphs using a decomposition of the underlying hypergraph into blocks, defined via chains. Further, using an algebra software package such as Maple, one can use the… CONTINUE READING
