The Moore bound for a directed graph of maximum out-degree d and diameter k is Md,k=1+d+d2++dk. It is known that digraphs of order Md,k (Moore digraphs) do not exist for d>1 and k>1. Similarly, the Moore bound for an undirected graph of maximum degree d and diameter k is . Undirected Moore graphs only exist in a small number of cases. Mixed (or partially directed) Moore graphs generalize both undirected and directed Moore graphs. In this paper, we shall show that all known mixed Moore graphs of diameter k=2 are unique and that mixed Moore graphs of diameter k3 do not exist.
The girth pair of a graph gives the length of a shortest odd and a shortest even cycle. The existence of regular graphs with given degree and girth pair was proved by Harary and Kovács [Regular graphs with given girth pair, J Graph Theory 7 (1983), 209-218]. A (
