    Let S be a subset of the units in Zn. Let Γ be a circulant graph of order n (a Cayley graph of Zn) such that if ij ∈ E(Γ), then i − j (mod n) ∈ S. Toida conjectured that if Γ0 is another circulant graph of order n, then Γ ...

    The development of effective problem gambling prevention programs is in its infancy. The present paper discusses results of randomized control trials of two programs that have been implemented in Alberta, Canada. The first ...
  • Williams, Robert J.; Connolly, Dennis (American Psychological AssociationSchool of Health SciencesArts and ScienceMathematics and Computer Science, 2006-03)
    The present research examined the influence of improved knowledge of odds and mathematical expectation on the gambling behavior of university students. A group of 198 Introductory Statistics students received instruction ...

    University students from southern Alberta (n = 585) were administered a questionnaire to assess their gambling behaviour. Seventy-two percent reported gambling in the past 6 months, with the most common types being lotteries ...

    We generalize a classical result of Sabidussi that was improved by Hemminger, to the case of directed color graphs. The original results give a necessary and sufficient condition on two graphs, C and D, for the automorphsim ...

    In this paper, we examine the structure of vertex- and edge-transitive strongly regular graphs,using normal quotient reduction. We show that their reducible graphs in this family have quasi primitive automorphism groups, ...

    We prove that if Cay(G;S) is a connected Cayley graph with n vertices,and the prime factorization of n is very small, then Cay(G;S) has a hamiltonian cycle. More precisely, if p, q, and r are distinct primes, then n can ...

    Suppose G is a finite group, such that |G| = 16p, where p is prime. We show that if S is any generating set of G, then there is a hamiltonian cycle in the corresponding Cayley graph Cay(G;S).

    We characterise connected cubic graphs admitting a vertex-transitive group of automorphisms with an abelian normal subgroup that is not semiregular. We illustrate the utility of this result by using it to prove that the ...

    A finite group G is a DCI-group if, whenever S and S0 are subsets of G with the Cayley graphs Cay(G,S) and Cay(G,S0) isomorphic, there exists an automorphism ϕ of G with ϕ(S) = S0. It is a CI-group if this condition holds ...
  • Morris, Joy (University of Calgary, Department of Mathematics & StatisticsArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer ScienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    In this paper, we begin by partitioning the edge (or arc) set of a circulant (di)graph according to which generator in the connection set leads to each edge. We then further refine the partition by subdividing any part that ...

    We study the automorphisms of a Cayley graph that preserve its natural edge-colouring. More precisely, we are interested in groups G, such that every such automorphism of every connected Cayley graph on G has a very simple ...

    Software development projects receive many change requests each day and each report must be examined to decide how the request will be handled by the project. One decision that is frequently made is to which software ...

    In this paper, we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a cyclic m-cycle system of Kn −I when m and n are even and m | n.

    In a Cayley digraph on a group G, if a distinct colour is assigned to each arc-orbit under the left-regular action of G, it is not hard to show that the elements of the left-regular action of G are the only digraph ...

    A Cayley graph on a group G has a natural edge-colouring. We say that such a graph is CCA if every automorphism of the graph that preserves this edge-colouring is an element of the normaliser of the regular representation ...

    We attempt to determine the structure of the automorphism group of a generic circulant graph. We first show that almost all circulant graphs have automorphism groups as small as possible. The second author has conjectured ...
