1. An
automorphism
of a graph
G
is an isomorphism of
G
with itself,
i.e., a 1to1 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 4cycle, 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
.
