Publication# Some graph products and their expansion properties

Abstract

We introduce "derandomized" versions of the tensor product and the zig-zag product, extending the ideas in the derandomized squaring operation of Rozenman and Vadhan. These enable us to obtain graphs with smaller degrees than those obtained using their non-derandomized counterparts, though at the cost of slightly worse expansion. In this paper we give bounds on these expansions (measured by their second eigenvalues), and also obtain an improved bound on the expansion of the derandomized square.

Planar graph

In graph theory, a planar graph is a graph that can be embedded in the plane, i.e., it can be drawn on the plane in such a way that its edges intersect only at their endpoints. In other words, it can be drawn in such a way that no edges cross each other. Such a drawing is called a plane graph or planar embedding of the graph. A plane graph can be defined as a planar graph with a mapping from every node to a point on a plane, and from every edge to a plane curve on that plane, such that the extreme points of each curve are the points mapped from its end nodes, and all curves are disjoint except on their extreme points.

Tensor product of graphs

In graph theory, the tensor product G × H of graphs G and H is a graph such that the vertex set of G × H is the Cartesian product V(G) × V(H); and vertices (g,h) and math|(''g,h' ) are adjacent in G × H if and only if g is adjacent to g' in G, and h is adjacent to h' in H. The tensor product is also called the direct product, Kronecker product, categorical product, cardinal product, relational product, weak direct product, or conjunction'''.

Line graph

In the mathematical discipline of graph theory, the line graph of an undirected graph G is another graph L(G) that represents the adjacencies between edges of G. L(G) is constructed in the following way: for each edge in G, make a vertex in L(G); for every two edges in G that have a vertex in common, make an edge between their corresponding vertices in L(G). The name line graph comes from a paper by although both and used the construction before this.

We examine the connection of two graph parameters, the size of a minimum feedback arcs set and the acyclic disconnection. A feedback arc set of a directed graph is a subset of arcs such that after deletion the graph becomes acyclic. The acyclic disconnecti ...

When can a unimodular random planar graph be drawn in the Euclidean or the hyperbolic plane in a way that the distribution of the random drawing is isometry-invariant? This question was answered for one-ended unimodular graphs in Benjamini and Timar, using ...

Spectral algorithms are some of the main tools in optimization and inference problems on graphs. Typically, the graph is encoded as a matrix and eigenvectors and eigenvalues of the matrix are then used to solve the given graph problem. Spectral algorithms ...
