### Is the 3-coloring problem NP-hard on graphs of maximal degree 3?

The answer is no: the 3-coloring problem can be solved in linear time on graphs of maximal degree 3 or less, by application of Brooks' theorem. I wasted some time figuring this out, so I thought I'd ...

### Is there a planar 4-regular graph that is 3-acyclic colourable?

I can prove that no 4-regular graphs are 3-acyclic colorable. Consider a 4-regular graph with a 3-coloring. If we call the colors $a, b, c$, then one of the three subgraphs generated by restricting ...

### NP-hardness of coloring uniform hypergraphs

$2$-coloring $s$-uniform hypergraphs is also called Set Splitting, problem [SP4] in Garey-Johnson book. The hardness proof is due to Lovasz in this paper.

### Computing the edge orbits of a graph (and discussing definitions)

It turns out that yes, indeed, there are two possible definitions for edge-automorphisms... but it turns out that they almost always coincide so that it seems that people often get away with not ...

### Complexity of graph isomorphism with properly colored edges (ref. request)

In general, if the number of adjacent edges, which have the same color, is bounded by a constant, say d. Then, the isomorphism problem for n-vertex graphs can be solved in n^(cd) for some constant c. ...

### Deciding $\omega(G)>k$ when $\alpha(G)$ and $\chi(G)$ have bounds and are known

The NP-hardness proof for CLIQUE in the book by Garey and Johnson shows that the following problem is NP-complete: Instance: An integer $k$; a $k$-partite graph $G=(V,E)$ Question: Does $G$ ...
