Total difference chromatic numbers of regular infinite graphs

Noam Benson-Tilsen, Samuel Brock, Brandon Faunce, Monish Kumar, Noah Dokko Stein and Joshua Zelinsky

Vol. 16 (2023), No. 5, 765–781
Abstract

Given a graph G, a k-total difference labeling of the graph is a total labeling f from the set of edges and vertices to the set {1,2,,k} satisfying f({u,v}) = |f(u) f(v)| for any edge {u,v}. If G is a graph, then χtd (G) is the minimum k such that there is a k-total difference labeling of G in which no two adjacent labels are identical. We extend prior work on total difference labeling by improving the upper bound on χtd (Kn) and also by proving results concerning infinite regular graphs.
