(25 points) Let ( s 1 ,s 2 ,...,s n ) be an arbitrarily distributed sequence of the numbers 1 , 2 ,...,n 1 ,n (i.e., a permutation). For instance, for n = 5, one arbitrary sequence could be (5 , 3 , 4 , 2 , 1). Define the graph G = ( V,E ) as follows: 1. V = { v 1 ,v 2 ,...,v n } 2. { v i ,v j } ∈ E if either: • j = i + 1, for 1 ≤ i ≤ n 1 • i = s k , and j = s k +1 for 1 ≤ k ≤ n 1 (a) Prove that this graph is 4colorable for any ( s 1 ,s 2 ,...,s n ). 1 (b) Suppose ( s 1 ,s 2 ,...,s n ) = (1 ,a 1 , 3 ,a 2 , 5 ,a 3 ,... ) where a 1 ,a 2 .... is an arbitrary dis tributed sequence of the even numbers in 1 ,...,n . Prove that the resulting graph is 2colorable. 2. (25 points) An open Eulerian walk in a graph is a walk that traverses each edge exactly once and returns to a different vertex than it started from. Prove that a connected graph has an open Eulerian walk if and only if it has exactly two vertices of odd degree.has an open Eulerian walk if and only if it has exactly two vertices of odd degree....
