This publication addresses a brand new interdisciplinary quarter rising at the border among quite a few components of arithmetic, physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, and computing device technological know-how. the focal point here's on difficulties and methods regarding graphs, quantum graphs, and fractals that parallel these from differential equations, differential geometry, or geometric research. additionally integrated are such various subject matters as quantity thought, geometric staff concept, waveguide thought, quantum chaos, quantum cord structures, carbon nano-structures, metal-insulator transition, laptop imaginative and prescient, and communique networks. This quantity features a distinct choice of specialist stories at the major instructions in research on graphs (e.g., on discrete geometric research, zeta-functions on graphs, lately rising connections among the geometric workforce idea and fractals, quantum graphs, quantum chaos on graphs, modeling waveguide platforms and modeling quantum graph platforms with waveguides, keep an eye on concept on graphs), in addition to examine articles.

Fig. 11 A path Fig. 4 Paths 31 Fig. 1. For a non-empty subset A ⊂ V , if x ∈ A ⇒ t(e) ∈ A holds for every e ∈ Ex , then A = V . An undirected edge is said to separate X if the graph obtained by removing the edge (and by leaving the vertices unchanged) is disconnected. Such an edge is called a separating edge (Fig. 13). Obviously loop edges and parallel edges are not separating edges. If X has no separating edges, then deg x ≥ 2 for every vertex x. Given two paths c1 = (e1 , e2 , . . , en ) and c2 = (e1 , e2 , .

The graph Y obtained by gathering all edges in E1 is a forest (a disjoint union of trees). (d) By contracting each connected component of the complement of Y to one point, we get a tree. The proof goes as follows. (a) Suppose that an edge e separates X into more than two components, say X1 , X2 , X3 . Let xi be a vertex of Xi and let c be a path joining x1 and x2 . The edge e is contained in c. A path joining x1 and x3 must also go through the edge e so that the vertex x3 is joined with x1 or x2 by a path in the complement of e.

E) Let t(es ) = t(et ). Then (e1 , . . , et , es , . . , e1 ) is a circuit, and hence (ge1 , . . , get , ges , . . , ge1 ) is obtained by a cyclic permutation of (e1 , . . , et , es , . . , e1 ). This is a contradiction. This completes the proof of our assertion. 6 Notes (I) As a “dual” of homology, one can introduce the notion of cohomology group. For an additive group A, put C0 (X, A) = { f : V −→ A}, C1 (X, A) = {ω : E −→ A| ω (e) = −ω (e) (e ∈ E)} which we call the group of 0-cochains and the group of 1-cochains, respectively.
