The Class of Q-Cliqued Graphs: Eigen-bi-Balanced Characteristic, Designs and an Entomological Experiment

Authors: Paul August Winter, Carol Lynne Jessop, Costas Zachariades

Much research has involved the consideration of graphs which have sub-graphs of a particular kind, such as cliques. Known classes of graphs which are eigen-bi-balanced, i.e. they have a pair a,b of non-zero distinct eigenvalues, whose sum and product are integral, have been investigated. In this paper we will define ta new class of graphs, called q-cliqued graphs, on vertices, which contain q cliques each of order q connected to a central vertex, and then prove that these q-cliqued graphs are eigen-bi-balanced with respect to a conjugate pair whose sum is -1 and product 1-q. These graphs can be regarded as design graphs, and we use a specific example in an entomological experiment. AMS Classification: 05C50 Key words: cliques, eigen-bi-balanced graphs, conjugate pair, designs.
