The complete graph is often used to verify certain graph theoretical definitions and applications. Regarding the adjacency matrix, associated with the complete graph, as a circulant matrix, we find its eigenvalues, and use this result to generate a trigonometrical unit-equations involving the sum of terms of the form , where a is odd. This gives rise to t-complete-eigen sequences and diagrams, similar to the famous Farey sequence and diagram. We show that the ratio, involving sum of the terms of the t-complete eigen sequence, converges to ½ , and use this ratio to find the t-complete eigen area. To find the eigenvalues, associated with the characteristic polynomial of complete graph, using induction, we create a general determinant equation involving the minor of the matrix associated with this characteristic polynomial.

The study of the chromatic number and vertex coverings of graphs has opened many avenues of research. In this paper we combine these two concepts in a ratio, to investigate the domination effect of the chromatic number, of the subgaph induced by a vertex covering of a graph G (called the cover graph of G), on the original chromatic number of G, where large number of vertices are involved. This is referred to as the chromatic-cover domination. If this chromatic-cover ratio is a function of n, the order of graphs belonging to a class of graph, then we discuss its horizontal asymptotic behavior and attach the graphs average degree to the Riemann integral of this ratio, thus associating chromatic-cover area with classes of graphs. We found that the chromatic-cover domination had a strongest effect on complete graph, while this chromatic-cover domination had zero effect on star graphs. We show that the chromatic-cover asymptote of all classes of graphs belong to the interval [0,1], and conjecture that complete graphs are the only class of graphs having chromatic-cover asymptote of 1 and that they also have the largest area . We construct a class of graphs, using known classes of graph where vertices are replaced with cliques on q vertices, thus generating sequences which converges to the chromatic-cover asymptote of known classes of graphs. We use a particular sequence to construct a Farey chromatic-cover sequence which is a subsequence of the famous Farey sequence.

Best news. After over 30 years of debating, the debate is over. Yes, P is equal to NP.
For the first time, NP problems have been solved in this paper. Techniques and formulas were developed and used to solve these problems as well as produce simple equations to help programmers apply the techniques. The techniques and formulas are based on an extended Ashanti fairness wisdom as exemplified below. If two people A and B are to divide items of different sizes which are arranged from the largest size to the smallest size, the procedure will be as follows. In the first round, A chooses the largest size, followed by B choosing the next largest size. In the second round, B chooses first, followed by A. In the third round, A chooses first, followed by B and the process continues up to the last item. To abbreviate the sequence in the above choices, one obtains the sequence "A, BB, AA, BB, AA". Let A and B divide the sum of the whole numbers, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 as equally as possible, by merely always choosing the largest number. Then A chooses 10, B chooses 9 and 8, followed by A choosing 7 and 6; followed by B choosing 5 and 4; followed by A choosing 3 an 2; and finally, B chooses 1. The sum of A's choices is 10 +7+ 6 + 3 + 2 = 28; and the sum of B's choices is 9 + 8 + 5 + 4 + 1 = 27, with error, plus or minus 0.5 . Observe the sequence "A, BB, AA, BB, AA". Observe also that the sequence is not "AB, AB, AB, AB, AB as one might think. If one were to use AB, AB, AB, AB, AB, the sum for A would be 10 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 30 and the sum for B would be 9 +7 + 5 +3 + 1 = 25, with error, plus or minus 2.5. The reason why the sequence is "A, BB, AA, BB, AA", and not "AB, AB, AB, AB, AB" is as follows. In the first round, when A chooses first, followed by B, A has the advantage of choosing the larger number and B has the disadvantage of choosing the smaller number. In the second round, if A were to choose first, A would have had two consecutive advantages, and therefore, in the second round, B will choose first to produce the sequence AB, B or ABB. In the third round, A chooses first, because B chose first in the second round. After three rounds, the sequence would be A, BB, AA. When this technique was applied to 100 items of different values or masses, by mere combinations, the total value or mass of A's items was equal to the total value or mass of B's items. Similar results were obtained for 1000 items.
By hand, the techniques can be used to prepare final exam schedules for 100 or 1000 courses. Confirmed is the notion that a method that solves one of these problems can also solve other NP problems. Since six problems have been solved, all NP problems can be solved. If all NP problems can be solved, then all NP problems are P problems and therefore, P is equal to NP.
The CMI Millennium Prize requirements have been satisfied.

The point of inside closed curve could not directly connect to the point of outside. If a point of outside closed curve directly connect to points on closed curve then the maximum number of color of map is 4 under only 3 conditions, and the end point of closed curve is located inside newly created closed curve. If another outside point is added then we could prevent maximum color from exceeding 4 by using to rearrange colors of existing points.

Pascal’s Triangle, originally Mount Meru of Vedic Physics, provides the perfect format for a combinatorial Universe, with its binomial coefficients, as well as its ease of determining Fibonacci Numbers. Matrix and Clifford algebras, in the form of the chart above, can be shaped into a form identical with Pascal’s Triangle. At the same time, a Romanian researcher has devised an algorithm for determining a Fibonacci Number as a quarternion. This paper poses the question as to whether the Clifford Pyramid contains properties similar to Pascal's Triangle.

Reconstruction conjecture asks whether it is possible to reconstruct a unique (up to isomorphism) graph from set of its one vertex deleted subgraphs. We show here the validity of reconstruction conjecture for every connected graph which is uniquely reconstructible from the set of all its spanning trees. We make use of a well known result, namely, the reconstruction of a tree from the deck of its pendant point deleted subtrees.

A contact border of two adjacent figures can only be two adjacent borderlines. Let us consider the plane of any uncolored planar map as which consists of two kinds’ parallel straight linear segments according to a strip of a kind alternating a strip of another, and every straight linear segment of each kind consists of two kinds of colored points according to a colored point of a kind alternating a colored point of another, either kind of colored points at a straight linear segment is not alike to either kind of colored points at either adjacent straight linear segment of the straight linear segment. Anyhow the plane has altogether four kinds of colored points.
At the outset, we need transform and classify figures at an uncolored planar map. First merge orderly each figure which adjoins at most three figures and an adjacent figure which adjoins at least four figures into a figure. Secondly merge each tract of figures which adjoin at most three figures and an adjacent figure into a figure. After that, transform every borderline closed curve of figures which compose directly the merging figure into the frame of a rectangle which has only longitudinal and transversal sides, according to the sequence from outside merging figure to inside merging figure. Finally color each figure with a color according to either a color of some particular points of a rectangular borderlines closed curve of the figure, or a color unlike colors of its adjacent figures.

The Innovation Game Theory (IGT) is designed to help businesses, organizations and communities in formulating an approach to their innovation activities in the form of scientific game. As such, leaders, growth managers, theorists, inventors, innovators and consumers visualize the process of overcoming challenges their businesses or communities face (known or unknown) as though it is a game where all strategic actions and resources involved in tackling the challenges are expressed in terms of quantifiable values which are ultimately tied to certain competitive reward mechanisms.

We establish the existence of graceful labeling for any unlabeled tree by proposing actual construction procedure for such labeling. We define so called lattice and lattice paths sitting inside it. A lattice path is produced by starting with bottom (or top) row of the lattice and choosing one lattice point per row in the lattice in succession and joining these lattice points. With these lattice points we associate vertex pairs representing edges in a complete graph. It obviously follows that each of so called lattice path represents a graceful graph and further it easily follows that there exist in all n! graceful graphs (among which some are trees) in a complete graph on n vertices. In this paper we propose an algorithm to construct graceful labeling for any given unlabeled tree through construction of appropriate lattice path for this tree under consideration.

Suppose $G$ is a simple graph. The eigenvalues $\delta_1,
\delta_2,\ldots, \delta_n$ of $G$ are the eigenvalues of its
adjacency matrix $A$. The Estrada index of the graph $G$ is defined
as $EE = EE(G) = \Sigma_{i=1}^{n} e^{\delta_i}$. In this paper the
basic properties of $EE$ are investigated. Moreover, some lower and
upper bounds for the Estrada index in terms of the number of
vertices, edges and the Randic index are obtained. In addition, some
relations between $EE$ and graph energy $E(G)$ are presented.

In Vedic Physics, the combinatorial process by which counts are counted closely resembles the binomial triangle, or Pascal's Triangle, which was known to Ancient India and China as Mount Meru or Zhang's triangle. This is not accidental, but instead reflects the numerical structure of the universe, as the pattern repeats itself in many types of numbers, including Clifford Algebras, Octonions, the Exceptional Lie Algebras, the Magic Triangle, and Barnes - Wall Lattices. Previous papers have discussed details of the counts; this paper focuses on the triangular relationships between numbers, especially those noted by Tony "Frank" Smith.

Matter may exist in one of three states in the universe. The interactions between these states of matter add up to fifty types of change. Causes of change include: the spectrum of inter-changed states, due to imbalance, failure to synchronize, balance and coherent synchronization, caused by the interplay of three modes of matter, which sum up to 50 (order of powers). This paper describes the three states of matter and how their interactions combine to create fifty types of change.

Decoding of Vedic literature reveals three states of matter, and the basic count of matter as modulated by the Golden Section. Thus, all forms of nature follow the contours of the Golden Section in their growth and development. Provided here is a basic explanation of how the counts occur within the three separate states of matter, and a new formation of Time. These concepts form the basis of the Qi Men Dun Jia Model, with its incorporation of the icosahedron and its 60 stellated permutations.

The classic wit problem, the “Nine Dots Puzzle” is widely used in courses on creativity and appears in a lot of games magazines. One of the earliest appearances is in “Cyclopedia of Puzzles” by Sam Loyd’s in 1914. Here is a review of the generic solution of the problem of the 9 points spread to n2 points. Basing on a specific pattern, we show that any nxn (for n ≥ 5) points puzzle can be also solved Inside the Box, using only 2n−2 straight lines (connected at their end-points), through the square spiral method. The same pattern is also useful to “bound above” the minimal number of straight lines we need to connect nk points in a k-dimensional space, while to “bound below” the solution of the nxnx…xn puzzle we start from a very basic consideration.

The association of integers, conjugate pairs and tightness with the eigenvalues of graphs provide the motivation for the following definitions. A class of graphs, with the property, that for each graph (member) of the class, there exists a pair a,b of non-zero, distinct, eigenvalues, whose sum (or product) yields the same integer, either as a fixed constant, or a function of an inherent aspect of the graph (such as its size), is said to be sum-eigen*(a+b)*pair balanced (or product-eigen*(a.b)*pair balanced, respectively). For example, complete graphs on n vertices, are eigen-bi-balanced with sum-eigen*(n-2)*pair balanced and product-eigen*(1-n)*pair balanced, and since a,b are non-zero their reciprocals (which affect the tightness of a graph ) are defined, so that this class has the eigen-balanced ratio of 1/a+1/b=(a+b)/(a.b)= (n-2)/(1-n) =f(n) which is asymptotic to the constant value of -1. The absolute value of the integral of f(n) multiplied by the average degree yields the area (n-1)(n-ln(n-1)) – we show that this is the maximum area for most known classes of eigen-bi-balanced graphs. We investigate the effect of this asymptotic ratio on the energy of the molecular representation of graphs. Cycles are generally neither sum-eigen-pair, nor product-eigen-pair balanced, while paths are only sum- eigen-pair balanced. In this paper, we introduce a class of graphs, involving q cliques each of size q, and show that this class is eigen-bi-balanced with respect to the sum -1 and product 1-q so that it has ratio 1/(q-1) asymptotic to 0, and has area q(2q+2ln(q-1)), and discuss its eigen-bi-balanced criticality.

A self-avoiding walk (SAW) is a path on a lattice that does not pass through the same point more than once. We develop a method for enumerating self-avoiding walks in a lattice by decomposing them into smaller pieces called tiles, solving particular cases on the square, triangular and cubic lattices. We also show that enumeration of SAWs in a lattice is related to enumeration of edge-connected shapes, for example polyominoes.

In computational complexity, the Decision version of the Directed Hamiltonian Path Problem is known to be NP-complete (Nondeterministic-Polynomial complete). There are no known efficient algorithms for its resolution in Polynomial time. In three papers, the author shows that this problem can be resolved in Polynomial time under two special conditions relating to the determinant of a matrix: the absence of zero rows (columns) and similar rows (columns). In this paper, the author gives a brief overview of the proposed solution and the P vs NP problem.

The problem of finding shortest Hamiltonian path in a weighted complete graph belongs to the class of NP-Complete problems [1]. In this paper we will show that we can obtain shortest Hamiltonian path in a given weighted complete graph in polynomial time! We will be discussing a very simple but useful idea of applying certain chosen sequence of permutations (actually transpositions) on given weighted adjacency matrix corresponding to the complete graph, on p points say, under consideration. This simple and novel algorithm essentially consists of applying certain transpositions that will transform the weighted adjacency matrix in such a way that its vertices are now relabeled and in this relabeled weighted complete graph the algorithm terminates decisively in producing the shortest Hamiltonian path, and this shortest Hamiltonian path will be
1->2->3->....->(p-1)->p

Let G and H be two cographs.
We show that the
problem to determine whether H is a retract of G
is NP-complete.
We show that this problem is fixed-parameter tractable when
parameterized by the size of H.
When restricted to the class of threshold graphs or
to the class of
trivially perfect graphs, the problem becomes tractable
in polynomial time. The problem is also
solvable in linear time
when one cograph is given as an induced subgraph
of the other. We characterize absolute retracts
for the class of cographs. Foldings generalize retractions.
We show that the problem to fold a
trivially perfect graph onto a largest possible clique is
NP-complete. For a threshold graph this folding number equals
its chromatic number and achromatic number.

The paper deals with the problems of characterization of simple graphical partitions belonging to the solid graphs, i.e. graphs, in which there are no four of vertices such that it is possible some shift of edges incidental to them and with characterization of the one class of steady graphs too. The necessary and sufficient
conditions for the partition belonging to the solid graph have been established.

Different from the system in classical mathematics, a
Smarandache system is a contradictory system in which an axiom behaves in at least
two different ways within the same system, i.e., validated and invalided, or
only invalided but in multiple distinct ways. Such systems exist extensively
in the world, particularly, in our daily life. In this paper, we discuss such a
kind of Smarandache system, i.e., non-solvable ordinary differential equation
systems by a combinatorial approach, classify these systems and characterize
their behaviors, particularly, the sum-stability and prod-stability of such
linear and non-linear differential equations. Some applications of such systems
to other sciences, such as those of globally controlling of infectious diseases,
establishing dynamical equations of instable structure, particularly, the
n-body problem and understanding global stability of matters with multilateral
properties can be also found.

Let GG be a class of graphs. A graph G is a probe graph of GG if its vertex set can be partitioned into a set P of `probes' and an independent set N of `nonprobes' such that G can be embedded into a graph of GG by adding edges between certain nonprobes.
In this book we investigate probe graphs of various classes of graphs.

The decision version of Directed Hamiltonian path problem is an NP-complete problem which asks, given a directed graph G, does G contain a directed Hamiltonian path? In two separate papers, the author expresses the graph problem as an adjacency matrix and a proof given to show that under two special conditions relating to theorems on the determinant of a square matrix, a non-zero determinant value certifies the existence of a directed Hamiltonian path. Here, a brief note is added to repair a flaw in the proof. The result, as expressed in the paper title is a more defensible proposition

In earlier work, the author conjectured that under two special conditions relating to theorems on the determinant of a matrix: the absence of a zero row (column) and the absence of similar rows (columns), a non-zero determinant value certifies the existence of a Directed Hamiltonian Path in an arbitrary adjacency matrix. Here, a formal proof is provided by means of deductive logic to establish that in an arbitrary adjacency matrix of size n (n rows and n columns), a non-zero determinant value verifies the existence of a Directed Hamiltonian Path in the adjacency matrix.

In this paper we obtain a new polynomial time algorithm for testing isomorphism of graphs. This algorithm is based on the idea of associating a rooted, unordered, pseudo tree with given graphs and thus reducing the isomorphism problem for graphs to isomorphism problems for associated rooted, unordered, pseudo trees. We show that isomorphism of the rooted, unordered, pseudo trees associated with graphs and so in effect isomorphism of given two graphs can be tested in polynomial (quadratic) time.

An edge-colored graph G is rainbow edge-connected if any two vertices are connected
by a path whose edges have distinct colors. The rainbow connection of a connected
graph G, denoted by rc(G), is the smallest number of colors that are needed in
order to make G rainbow connected. Similarly, a vertex-colored graph G is rainbow
vertex-connected if any two vertices are connected by a path whose internal vertices
have distinct colors. The rainbow vertex-connection of a connected graph G, denoted
by rvc(G), is the smallest number of colors that are needed in order to make G rainbow
vertex-connected. We prove that both rc(G) and rvc(G) have sharp concentration in
classical random graph model G(n, p).

We consider combinatorial maps with fixed combinatorial knot numbered with
augmenting numeration called normalized knot. We show that knot's normalization
doesn't affect combinatorial map what concerns its generality. Knot's normalization
leads to more concise numeration of corners in maps, e.g., odd or even corners allow
easy to follow distinguished cycles in map caused by the fixation of the knot.
Knot's normalization may be applied to edge structuring knot too. If both are
normalized then one is fully and other partially normalized mutually.

Basically, it constitutes of a re-casting of the classical "shortest route" problem within a strictly
Euclidean space. We have only presented a heuristic solution process with the hope that a formal
proof will eventually emerge as the problem receives wider exposure within mathematical circles.

Best news. After over 30 years of debating, the debate is over. Yes, P is equal to NP.
For the first time, NP problems have been solved in this paper. Techniques and formulas were developed and used to solve these problems as well as produce simple equations to help programmers apply the techniques. The techniques and formulas are based on an extended Ashanti fairness wisdom as exemplified below. If two people A and B are to divide items of different sizes which are arranged from the largest size to the smallest size, the procedure will be as follows. In the first round, A chooses the largest size, followed by B choosing the next largest size. In the second round, B chooses first, followed by A. In the third round, A chooses first, followed by B and the process continues up to the last item. To abbreviate the sequence in the above choices, one obtains the sequence "AB, BA AB". Let A and B divide the sum of the whole numbers, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 as equally as possible, by merely always choosing the largest number. Then A chooses 10, B chooses 9 and 8, followed by A choosing 7 and 6; followed by B choosing 5 and 4; followed by A choosing 3 an 2; and finally, B chooses 1.
The sum of A's choices is 10 +7+ 6 + 3 + 2 = 28; and the sum of B's choices is 9 + 8 + 5 + 4 + 1 = 27, with error, plus or minus 0.5 . Observe the sequence "AB, BA, AB, BA, AB". Observe also that the sequence is not "AB, AB, AB, AB, AB as one might think. If one were to use AB, AB, AB, AB, AB, the sum for A would be 10 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 30 and the sum for B would be 9 +7 + 5 +3 + 1 = 25, with error, plus or minus 2.5. The reason why the sequence is "AB, BA AB, BA, AB", and not "AB, AB, AB, AB, AB" is as follows. In the first round, when A chooses first, followed by B, A has the advantage of choosing the larger number and B has the disadvantage of choosing the smaller number. In the second round, if A were to choose first, A would have had two consecutive advantages, and therefore, in the second round, B will choose first to produce the sequence AB, BA. In the third round, A chooses first, because B chose first in the second round. After three rounds, the sequence would be AB, BA, AB. When this technique was applied to 100 items of different values or masses, by mere combinations, the total value or mass of A's items was equal to the total value or mass of B's items. Similar results were obtained for 1000 items.
By hand, the techniques can be used to prepare final exam schedules for 100 or 1000 courses. Confirmed is the notion that a method that solves one of these problems can also solve other NP problems. Since six problems have been solved, all NP problems can be solved. If all NP problems can be solved, then all NP problems are P problems and therefore, P is equal to NP.
The CMI Millennium Prize requirements have been satisfied.

We define so called n-delta lattice containing (n-1) lattice points in first (topmost) row, (n-2) lattice points in second row, and so on. Each time the count of lattice points decreases by unity as we move down by one row till we reach the last (bottommost) row containing single lattice point. We label these lattice points in two different ways and obtain two different labeled lattices. In the first kind of labeling we associate vertex pairs in a particular way as labels for points of the lattice and so call it edge-labeled n-delta lattice. In the second kind of labeling we associate integers as labels with lattice points in each row to indicate the position of that lattice point in the row and so call it position-labeled n-delta lattice. This defining of position-labeled n-delta lattice enables us to associate a lexicographic ordering with lattice paths. We define distinct as well as different lattice paths and further see that for proving graceful tree conjecture one needs to show that the count of distinct lattice paths corresponding to trees in the edge-labeled n-delta lattice is same as the count of nonisomorphic trees with n vertices. We verify this for some (small) values of n. We further see that existence of graceful labeling for an unlabeled tree with n vertices follows from the existence of a lattice path representing this same tree in the edge-labeled n-delta lattice. It is possible to generate all (n, n-1)-trees from all (n-1, n-2)-trees by attaching an edge that emerges from each of the inequivalent vertices of (n-1, n-2)-trees and entering in the new vertex taken outside. We show that extending all lattice paths by adding a lattice point in the paths sitting in the sub-lattice of n-delta lattice in all possible ways is same as the above mentioned generation of trees from lower trees.

The classic thinking problem, the “Nine Dots Puzzle”, is widely used in courses on creativity and appears in a lot of games magazines. One of the earliest appearances is in “Cyclopedia of Puzzles” by Sam Loyd in 1914. Here is a review of the generic solution of the problem of the 9 points spread to n^2 points. Basing it on a specific pattern, we show that any nxn (for n ≥ 5) points puzzle can also be solved ‘Inside the Box’, using only 2∙n − 2 straight lines (connected at their end-points), through the square spiral method. The same pattern is also useful to “bound above” the minimal number of straight lines we need to connect n^k points in a k-dimensional space, while to “bound below” the solution of the nxnx…xn puzzle we start from a very basic consideration.

The problem of finding shortest Hamiltonian path and shortest Hamiltonian circuit in a weighted complete graph belongs to the class of NP-Complete problems [1]. This well known problem asks for a method or algorithm to locate such path or circuit that passes through every vertex only once in the given weighted complete graph. In this paper we begin with proposing two approximation algorithms for shortest Hamiltonian graphs which essentially consists of applying certain chosen permutations (transpositions or product of transpositions) on the adjacency matrix of given weighted complete graph causing reshuffling of the labels of its vertices. We change the labels of vertices through proper choice of permutations in such a way that in this relabeled graph the Hamiltonian path 123….k(k+1)…p becomes approximation to shortest path in the given weighted complete graph under consideration. We then define so called ordered weighted adjacency list for given weighted complete graph and proceed to the main result of the paper, namely, the exact algorithm based on utilization of ordered weighted adjacency list and the simple properties that any path or circuit must satisfy. This algorithm performs checking of sub-lists, containing (n-1) entries (edge pairs) for paths and n entries (edge pairs) for circuits, chosen from ordered adjacency list in a well defined sequence to determine exactly the shortest Hamiltonian path and shortest Hamiltonian circuit. The procedure has intrinsic advantage of landing on the desired solution in quickest possible time and even in worst case in polynomial time.

In earlier work, the author conjectured that under two special conditions relating to theorems on the determinant of a matrix: the absence of a zero row (column) and the absence of similar rows (columns), a non-zero determinant value certifies the existence of a Directed Hamiltonian Path in an arbitrary adjacency matrix. Here, a formal proof is provided by means of deductive logic to establish that in an arbitrary adjacency matrix of size n (n rows and n columns), a non-zero determinant value verifies the existence of a Directed Hamiltonian Path in the adjacency matrix

Automorphism groups survey similarities on mathematical systems, which appear nearly
in all mathematical branches, such as those of algebra, combinatorics, geometry, ... and
theoretical physics, theoretical chemistry, etc. In geometry, configurations with high
symmetry born symmetrical patterns, a kind of beautiful pictures in aesthetics. Naturally,
automorphism groups enable one to distinguish systems by similarity. More automorphisms
imply more symmetries of that system. This fact has established the fundamental
role of automorphism groups in modern sciences. So it is important for graduate students
knowing automorphism groups with applications.

Accompanied with humanity into the 21st century, a highlight trend for developing
a science is its overlap and hybrid, and harmoniously with other sciences, which
enables one to handle complex systems in the WORLD. This is also for developing
mathematics. As a powerful tool for dealing with relations among objectives,
combinatorics, including combinatorial theory and graph theory mushroomed in last
century. Its related with algebra, probability theory and geometry has made it to an
important subject in mathematics and interesting results emerged in large number
without metrics. Today, the time is come for applying combinatorial technique to
other mathematics and other sciences besides just to find combinatorial behavior
for objectives. That is the motivation of this book, i.e., to survey mathematics and
fields by combinatorial principle.
