Difference Necklaces

  title={Difference Necklaces},
  author={E. P. White and Richard K. Guy and Renate Scheidler},
  journal={arXiv: Combinatorics},
An $(a,b)$-difference necklace of length $n$ is a circular arrangement of the integers $0, 1, 2, \ldots , n-1$ such that any two neighbours have absolute difference $a$ or $b$. We prove that, subject to certain conditions on $a$ and $b$, such arrangements exist, and provide recurrence relations for the number of $(a,b)$-difference necklaces for $( a, b ) = ( 1, 2 )$, $( 1, 3 )$, $( 2, 3 )$ and $( 1, 4 )$. Using techniques similar to those employed for enumerating Hamiltonian cycles in certain… 



The Diophantine Frobenius Problem

Let X ⊂ N be a finite subset such that gcd(X) = 1. The Frobenius number of X (denoted by G(X)) is the greatest integer without an expression as a sum of elements of X. We write f(n,M) = max{G(X);

Counting Structures in Grid Graphs, Cylinders and Tori Using Transfer Matrices: Survey and New Results

The goal of this paper is to demonstrate that, with some minor modifications, the transfer matrix technique can also be easily used to count structures in fixed height grid-cylinders and tori.

Fibonacci Plays Billiards

A chain is an ordering of the integers 1 to n such that adjacent pairs have sums of a particular form, such as squares, cubes, triangular numbers, pentagonal numbers, or Fibonacci numbers. For

Enumeration of Hamiltonian Circuits in Rectangular Grids

We describe an algorithm for computing the number hm,n of Hamiltonian circuits in a rectangular grid graph consisting of m × n squares. For any fixed m, the set of Hamiltonian circuits on such graphs

The theory of binomial posets developed in the previous chapter sheds considerable light on the “meaning” of generating functions and reduces certain types of enumerative problems to a routine

Enumerating Hamiltonian Cycles

A dynamic programming method for enumerating hamiltonian cycles in arbitrary graphs is presented, and results are obtained for larger cases than previously published.

A Matrix Method for Counting Hamiltonian Cycles on Grid Graphs

The matrix method is used to determine the number of Hamiltonian cycles and its more generalized version, transfer-matrix method, may give easier solution to cases in which m ⩾ 6.
