On the sandpile group of Eulerian series-parallel graphs

Kyle Weishaar and James Seibert

Vol. 13 (2020), No. 3, 381–398
Abstract

A sandpile configuration is a representation of the current layout of theoretical sand on a graph in which every vertex is assigned a nonnegative integer value. The Abelian sandpile group is a finite group composed of the recurrent sandpile configurations of a graph. We investigate the sandpile group of graphs constructed using the composition rules of series-parallel graphs, and determine the sandpile groups of parallel compositions of path-graphs.
