Abstract.In this paper, we prove that a cubic line graph G on n vertices rather than the complete graph K4 has vertex-disjoint triangles and the vertex independence number . Moreover, the equitable chromatic number, acyclic chromatic number and bipartite density of G are respectively. 

Planarization and Acyclic Colorings of Subcubic Claw-Free Graphs

The largest known subclass of subcubic graphs such that an optimal acyclic vertex coloring can be found in polynomial-time is presented, and it is shown that this bound is tight by proving that the problem is NP-hard for cubic line graphs (and therefore, claw-free graphs) of maximum degree d≥4.

A Complexity Picture for H-Free Graphs

18 A k-colouring c of a graph G is a mapping V (G)→ {1, 2, . . . k} such that c(u) 6= c(v) whenever u 19 and v are adjacent. The corresponding decision problem is Colouring. A colouring is acyclic,

Acyclic, Star and Injective Colouring: A Complexity Picture for H-Free Graphs

This study gives almost complete classifications for the computational complexity of Acyclic Colouring, Star Colouring and Injective Colouring for H-free graphs and concludes that for fixed k the three problems behave in the same way, but this is no longer true if k is part of the input.

Counting Edge-injective Homomorphisms and Matchings on Restricted Graph Classes

It is shown that edge-injective homomorphisms from a pattern graph £H$ can be counted in polynomial time if $H$ has bounded vertex-cover number after removing isolated edges and if the graphs in $\mathcal{H}$ have unbounded vertex- cover number even after deleting isolated edges.



Extremal bipartite subgraphs of cubic triangle-free graphs

A cubic triangle-free graph has a bipartite subgraph with at least 4/5 of the original edges with a best possible result.

A note on cycles in 2-factors of line graphs

We provide a generalization to the well-known result of Harary and Nash-Williams characterizing graphs with Hamiltonian line graphs. Our generalization allows us to characterize those graphs whose

Nonhamiltonian 3-Connected Cubic Planar Graphs

It is established that every cyclically 4-connected cubic planar graph of order at most 40 is hamiltonian and this bound is determined to be sharp, and all nonhamiltonian examples of order 42 are presented.
