Title: The P3 Intersection Graph
Author: .Menon, Manju.K; Vijayakumar, A.
Abstract: We define a new graph operator called the P3 intersection graph, P3(G)- the intersection graph of all induced 3-paths in G. A characterization of graphs G for which P-3 (G) is bipartite is given . Forbidden subgraph characterization for P3 (G) having properties of being chordal , H-free, complete are also obtained . For integers a and b with a > 1 and b > a - 1, it is shown that there exists a graph G such that X(G) = a, X(P3( G)) = b, where X is the chromatic number of G. For the domination number -y(G), we construct graphs G such that -y(G) = a and -y (P3(G)) = b for any two positive numbers a > 1 and b. Similar construction for the independence number and radius, diameter relations are also discussed.
