1. An automorphism of a graph G is an isomorphism of G with itself, i.e., a 1-to-1 function ϕ : V ( G ) V ( G ) such that { u, v } is an edge of G iF { ϕ ( u ) , ϕ ( v ) } is an edge of G . Let aut( G ) be the number of automorphisms of G . Show that aut( G ) 1 for every graph G . ±ind a graph with at least two vertices for that aut( G ) = 1. Let G be a 4-cycle, i.e., a graph with 4 vertices a , b , c and d and 4 edges { a, b } , { b, c } , { c, d } and { a, d } . Determine aut( G ) and list all automorphisms of G . Let Graphs n be the set of all mutually non-isomorphic graphs with
