- ItemAutomorphisms of circulants that respect partitions(University of Calgary, Department of Mathematics & Statistics, 2016) Morris, JoyIn 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 corresponds to an element of order less than n, according to which of the cycles generated by that element the edge is in. It is known that if the (di)graph is connected and has no multiple edges, then any automorphism that respects the ﬁrst partition and ﬁxes the vertex corresponding to the group identity must be an automorphism of the group (this is in fact true in the more general context of Cayley graphs). We show that automorphisms that respect the second partition and ﬁx 0 must also respect the ﬁrst partition, and so are again precisely the group automorphisms of Zn.
- ItemCaley graphs of order 16p are hamiltonian(Drustvo Matematikov, Fizikov in Astronomov, 2012) Curran, Stephen J.; Morris, Dave Witte; Morris, JoySuppose 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).
- ItemHamiltonian cycles in Caley graphs whose order has few prime factors(Drustvo Matematikov, Fizikov in Astronomov, 2012) Kutnar, Klavdija; Marusic, Dragan; Morris, Dave Witte; Morris, Joy; Sparl, PrimozWe 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 be of the form kp with 24 6= k < 32, or of the form kpq with k ≤ 5,or of the form pqr,or of the form kp2 with k ≤ 4,or of the form kp3 with k ≤ 2.
- ItemOn colour-preserving automorphisms of Caley graphs(Drustvo Matematikov, Fizikov in Astronomov, 2016) Hujdurovic, Ademir; Kutnar, Klavdija; Morris, Dave Witte; Morris, JoyWe 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 form: the composition of a left-translation and a group automorphism. We ﬁnd classes of groups that have the property, and we determine the orders of all groups that do not have the property. We also have analogous results for automorphisms that permute the colours, rather than preserving them.
- ItemOn the automorphism groups of almost all circulant graphs and digraphs(Drustvo Matematikov, Fizikov in Astronomov, 2018) Bhoumik, Soumya; Dobson, Edward; Morris, JoyWe 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 that almost all of the remaining circulant (di)graphs (those whose automorphism group is not as small as possible) are normal circulant (di)graphs. We show this conjecture is not true in general, but is true if we consider only those circulant (di)graphs whose order is in a “large” subset of integers. We note that all non-normal circulant (di)graphs can be classiﬁed into two natural classes (generalized wreath products, and deleted wreath type), and show that neither of these classes contains almost every non-normal circulant digraph.
