http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13631_2227.html
Circular programming problems are a new class of convex optimization problems that include second-order cone programming problems as a special case. Alizadeh and Goldfarb [Math. Program. Ser. A 95 (2003) 3-51] introduced primal-dual path-following algorithms for solving second-order cone programming problems. In this paper, we generalize their work by using the machinery of Euclidean Jordan algebras associated with the circular cones to derive primal-dual path-following interior point algorithms for circular programming problems. We prove polynomial convergence of the proposed algorithms by showing that the circular logarithmic barrier is a strongly self-concordant barrier. The numerical examples show the path-following algorithms are simple and efficient.Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:30:00 +0100Roman domination excellent graphs: trees
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13654_0.html
A Roman dominating function (RDF) on a graph $G = (V, E)$ is a labeling $f : V rightarrow {0, 1, 2}$ suchthat every vertex with label $0$ has a neighbor with label $2$. The weight of $f$ is the value $f(V) = Sigma_{vin V} f(v)$The Roman domination number, $gamma_R(G)$, of $G$ is theminimum weight of an RDF on $G$.An RDF of minimum weight is called a $gamma_R$-function.A graph G is said to be $gamma_R$-excellent if for each vertex $x in V$there is a $gamma_R$-function $h_x$ on $G$ with $h_x(x) not = 0$. We present a constructive characterization of $gamma_R$-excellent trees using labelings. A graph $G$ is said to be in class $UVR$ if $gamma(G-v) = gamma (G)$ for each $v in V$, where $gamma(G)$ is the domination number of $G$. We show that each tree in $UVR$ is $gamma_R$-excellent.Mon, 23 Oct 2017 20:30:00 +0100Reformulated F-index of graph operations
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13630_2227.html
The first general Zagreb index is defined as $M_1^lambda(G)=sum_{vin V(G)}d_{G}(v)^lambda$. The case $lambda=3$, is called F-index. Similarly, reformulated first general Zagreb index is defined in terms of edge-drees as $EM_1^lambda(G)=sum_{ein E(G)}d_{G}(e)^lambda$ and the reformulated F-index is $RF(G)=sum_{ein E(G)}d_{G}(e)^3$. In this paper, we compute the reformulated F-index for some graph operations.Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:30:00 +0100Product version of reciprocal degree distance of composite graphs
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13655_0.html
A {it topological index} of a graph is a real number related to the graph; it does not depend on labeling or pictorial representation of a graph. In this paper, we present the upper bounds for the product version of reciprocal degree distance of the tensor product, join and strong product of two graphs in terms of other graph invariants including the Harary index and Zagreb indices.Tue, 24 Oct 2017 20:30:00 +0100On leap Zagreb indices of graphs
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13643_2227.html
The first and second Zagreb indices of a graph are equal, respectively, to the sum of squares of the vertex degrees, and the sum of the products of the degrees of pairs of adjacent vertices. We now consider analogous graph invariants, based on the second degrees of vertices (number of their second neighbors), called leap Zagreb indices. A number of their basic properties is established.Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:30:00 +0100Total $k$-Rainbow domination numbers in graphs
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13683_0.html
Let $kgeq 1$ be an integer, and let $G$ be a graph. A {it$k$-rainbow dominating function} (or a {it $k$-RDF}) of $G$ is afunction $f$ from the vertex set $V(G)$ to the family of all subsetsof ${1,2,ldots ,k}$ such that for every $vin V(G)$ with$f(v)=emptyset $, the condition $bigcup_{uinN_{G}(v)}f(u)={1,2,ldots,k}$ is fulfilled, where $N_{G}(v)$ isthe open neighborhood of $v$. The {it weight} of a $k$-RDF $f$ of$G$ is the value $omega (f)=sum _{vin V(G)}|f(v)|$. A $k$-rainbowdominating function $f$ in a graph with no isolated vertex is calleda {em total $k$-rainbow dominating function} if the subgraph of $G$induced by the set ${v in V(G) mid f (v) not = {color{blue}emptyset}}$ has no isolated vertices. The {em total $k$-rainbow domination number} of $G$, denoted by$gamma_{trk}(G)$, is the minimum weight of a total $k$-rainbowdominating function on $G$. The total $1$-rainbow domination is thesame as the total domination. In this paper we initiate thestudy of total $k$-rainbow domination number and we investigate itsbasic properties. In particular, we present some sharp bounds on thetotal $k$-rainbow domination number and we determine {color{blue}the} total$k$-rainbow domination number of some classes of graphs.

http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13644_2227.html
The rings considered in this article are commutative with identity which are not fields. Let R be a ring. A. Alilou, J. Amjadi and Sheikholeslami introduced and investigated a graph whose vertex set is the set of all nontrivial ideals of R and distinct vertices I, J are joined by an edge in this graph if and only if either ann(I)J = (0) or ann(J)I = (0). They called this graph as a new graph associated to a commutative ring.Their above mentioned work appeared in the Journal, Discrete Mathematics Algorithms and Applications. The aim of this article is to investigate the interplay between some graph- theoretic properties of the complement of a new graph associated to a commutative ring R and the ring -theoretic-properties of R.Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:30:00 +0100An infeasible interior-point method for the $P_*$-matrix linear complementarity problem based ...
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13693_0.html
An infeasible interior-point algorithm for solving the$P_*$-matrix linear complementarity problem based on a kernelfunction with trigonometric barrier term is analyzed. Each (main)iteration of the algorithm consists of a feasibility step andseveral centrality steps, whose feasibility step is induced by atrigonometric kernel function. The complexity result coincides withthe best result for infeasible interior-point methods for$P_*$-matrix linear complementarity problem.Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:30:00 +0100Approximation Solutions for Time-Varying Shortest Path Problem
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13645_2227.html
Abstract. Time-varying network optimization problems have tradition-ally been solved by specialized algorithms. These algorithms have NP-complement time complexity. This paper considers the time-varying short-est path problem, in which can be optimally solved in O(T(m + n)) time,where T is a given integer. For this problem with arbitrary waiting times,we propose an approximation algorithm, which can solve the problem withO(T(m+n)/ k ) time complexity such that evaluates only a subset of the valuesfor t = {0, 1, . . . , T}.Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:30:00 +0100Graceful labelings of the generalized Petersen graphs
http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13646_2227.html
A graceful labeling of a graph $G=(V,E)$ with $m$ edges is aninjection $f: V(G) rightarrow {0,1,ldots,m}$ such that the resulting edge labelsobtained by $|f(u)-f(v)|$ on every edge $uv$ are pairwise distinct. For natural numbers $n$ and $k$, where $n > 2k$, a generalized Petersengraph $P(n, k)$ is the graph whose vertex set is ${u_1, u_2, cdots, u_n} cup {v_1, v_2, cdots, v_n}$ and its edge set is ${u_iu_{i+1}, u_iv_i, v_iv_{i+k} : 1 leq i leq n }$, where subscript arithmetic is done modulo $n$. We propose a backtracking algorithm with a specific static variable ordering and dynamic value ordering to find graceful labelings for generalized Petersen graphs.Experimental results show that the presented approach strongly outperforms the standard backtracking algorithm. The proposed algorithm is able to find graceful labelings for all generalized Petersen graphs $P(n, k)$ with $n le 75$ within only several seconds.Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:30:00 +0100
