Math 412 HW4 Due Friday, February 26, 2016 Students in the three credit hour course must solve five of the six problems. Students in the four credit hour course must solve all six problems. 1 . Let T, T 0 be spanning trees of a connected graph G . For any e E ( T ) - E ( T 0 ) prove that there exists e 0 E ( T 0 ) - E ( T ) such that both T 0 + e - e 0 and T - e + e 0 are spanning trees of G . 2 . Let T be a tree on with an even number of vertices. Prove that T has exactly one spanning subgraph such that every vertex has odd degree. 3 . Given x V ( G ), let s ( x ) = v V ( G ) d ( x, v ). The barycenter of G is the set its vertices at which s ( x ) is minimized. a) Prove that the barycenter of a tree is a single vertex or two adjacent vertices. (Hint: Study s ( u ) - s ( v ) when uv E ( G ).) b) Give an example of a tree in which the distance between the center and the barycenter is at least 3. 4 . Using the Pr¨ufer correspondence, for n 6, count the number of trees with vertex set [ n ] that have maximum degree 3 and exactly four leaves. 5 . Let x be a vertex in a graph G , and suppose that

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
