Introduction to Magic Labelings of Graphs I

Talk on the DiMaS seminar.


Magic type labeling are an analogue to magic squares well known from recreational mathematics. First we introduce various magic type graph labelings:

  • a vertex magic total (VMT) labeling of a graph G(V,E),
  • an (s,d)-vertex antimagic total (VAMT) labeling,
  • a supermagic (SPM) labeling (also known as vertex magic edge labeling).
This talk should be a brief introduction to the topic of "magic graph labelings". We give definitions, examples and a summary of known results.

J. MacDougall conjectured that any regular graph with the exception of K2 and 2K3 has a VMT labeling.

In the talk we present recent results on VMT and VAMT labelings of certain regular graphs and post some research problems.
