On large bipartite graphs of diameter 3

- Feria-Purón, Ramiro, Miller, Mirka, Pineda-Villavicencio, Guillermo

**Authors:**Feria-Purón, Ramiro , Miller, Mirka , Pineda-Villavicencio, Guillermo**Date:**2013**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Discrete Mathematics Vol. 313, no. 4 (2013), p. 381-390**Relation:**http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP110102011**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**We consider the bipartite version of the degree/diameter problem, namely, given natural numbers dâ‰¥2 and Dâ‰¥2, find the maximum number N b(d,D) of vertices in a bipartite graph of maximum degree d and diameter D. In this context, the bipartite Moore bound Mb(d,D) represents a general upper bound for Nb(d,D). Bipartite graphs of order Mb(d,D) are very rare, and determining Nb(d,D) still remains an open problem for most (d,D) pairs. This paper is a follow-up of our earlier paper (Feria-PurÃ³n and Pineda-Villavicencio, 2012 [5]), where a study on bipartite (d,D,-4)-graphs (that is, bipartite graphs of order M b(d,D)-4) was carried out. Here we first present some structural properties of bipartite (d,3,-4)-graphs, and later prove that there are no bipartite (7,3,-4)-graphs. This result implies that the known bipartite (7,3,-6)-graph is optimal, and therefore Nb(7,3)=80. We dub this graph the Hafner-Loz graph after its first discoverers Paul Hafner and Eyal Loz. The approach here presented also provides a proof of the uniqueness of the known bipartite (5,3,-4)-graph, and the non-existence of bipartite (6,3,-4)-graphs. In addition, we discover at least one new largest known bipartite-and also vertex-transitive-graph of degree 11, diameter 3 and order 190, a result which improves by four vertices the previous lower bound for Nb(11,3). © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

**Authors:**Delorme, Charles , Jorgensen, Leif , Miller, Mirka , Pineda-Villavicencio, Guillermo**Date:**2009**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Journal of Graph Theory Vol. 61, no. 4 (2009), p. 271-288**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**We consider bipartite graphs of degree A<2, diameter D = 3, and defect 2 (having 2 vertices less than the bipartite Moore bound). Such graphs are called bipartite (â–³,3, -2) -graphs. We prove the uniqueness of the known bipartite (3, 3, -2) -graph and bipartite (4, 3, -2)-graph. We also prove several necessary conditions for the existence of bipartite (â–³,3, -2) - graphs. The most general of these conditions is that either â–³ or â–³-2 must be a perfect square. Furthermore, in some cases for which the condition holds, in particular, when â–³ = 6 and â–³ = 9, we prove the non-existence of the corresponding bipartite (â–³,3,-2)-graphs, thus establishing that there are no bipartite (â–³,3, -2)-graphs, for 5
