exactly once, except for the starting and ending

– Equivalently, when does an n-cube contain a
– The n-cube has a Hamiltonian cycle if and only if n

each si is a string of n-bits, satisfying:
• Every n-bit string appears somewhere in the sequence.
• si and si+1 differ in exactly one bit, i = 1, ., 2n-1.
• s2n and s1 differ in exactly one bit.
– The sequence above is called a Gray code.
– When n 2, a Gray code corresponds to the
Hamiltonian cycle s1, s2, ., s2n, s1.
– Let G1 denote the sequence 0, 1. We define Gn in

• A knight’s tour of an n x n board begins at some square,
visits each square exactly once making legal moves, and

length of a shortest path from a to z.

connected, weighted graph, Dijkstra’s algorithm has

– Label the rows and columns of a matrix with the
– The entry in this matrix in row i, column j, i j, is
the number of edges incident on i and j. If i = j, the
entry is twice the number of loops incident on i.
– The degree of a vertex v in a graph G is obtained
by summing row v or column v in G’s adjacency
– If A is the adjacency matrix of a simple graph, the
ijth entry of An is equal to the number of paths of
length n from vertex i to vertex j, n = 1, 2, . .

with the edges (in some arbitrary order).
– The entry for row v and column e is 1 if e is incident on
– Find the incidence matrix for the graph of Figure 8.5.4.
– In a graph without loops, each column has two 1’s and
the sum of a row gives the degree of the vertex
– Graphs G1 and G2 are isomorphic if there is a one-
to-one, onto function f from the vertices of G1 to
the vertices of G2 and a one-to-one, onto function
g from the edges of G1 to the edges of G2, so that
an edge e is incident on v and w in G1 if and only if
the edge g(e) is incident on f(v) and f(w) in G2.
