Radio Labeling of Ladder Graphs Josefina Flores Kathleen Lewis From: California State University Channel Islands Advisors: Dr. Tomova and Dr.Wyels Funding: NSF, NSA, and Moody’s, via the SUMMA program.

Distance: d(u,v) Length of shortest path between two vertices u and v Ex: d(v 1,v 6 )=2 Diameter: diam(G) Maximum distance in a graph over all vertices. Ex: diam(G)=3 Graph Terminology V1V1 V2V2 V3V3 V4V4 V5V5 V6V6 G

Radio Labeling A function c that assigns positive integer values to each vertex so as to satisfy the radio conditionA function c that assigns positive integer values to each vertex so as to satisfy the radio condition d(u,v) + |c(u)-c(v)| ≥ diam(G) + 1. d(u,v) + |c(u)-c(v)| ≥ diam(G) + 1. diam (G) - diameter of graph d(u,v) - distance between vertices u and v c(u),c(v) – label assigned to vertices c(u),c(v) – label assigned to vertices

Span(c) – Maximum label value assigned to a vertex in a graph. diam(G)=3 Can we get a lower span? Span(c)=10 Yes we can! d(u,v) + |c(u) – c(v)| ≥ diam(G) + 1

Lower Bound

Proof: List the vertices of L n as {x 1, x 2, …, x 2n } in increasing label order: The radio condition implies Rewrite this as

Expansion of the Inequality

Key Idea c(x 2n ) is the span of the labeling c. The smallest possible value of c(x 2n ) corresponds to the largest possible value of
