GENUS DISTRIBUTIONS OF M¨OBIUS LADDERSA WEBSITE SUPPLEMENT
YICHAO CHEN, JONATHAN L. GROSS, AND TOUFIK MANSOUR
Abstract.
The genus distribution of the M¨obius ladder
ML
n
is re-derived here, using overlapmatrices and Chebyshev polynomials. This website document in intended as a supplementto [4].
1.
Some sets of overlap matrices for ladders
The genus distribution, as well as the total embedding distribution, of a graph can be calculatedfrom the rank distribution of its overlap matrices. We deﬁne for the obius ladder
ML
n
+1
some sets of overlap matrices:(1)
M
n
+2
as the set of all matrices over
Z

of the form
c,x,y,X,Y,Zn

.In a matrix of the form
c,x,y,X,Y,Zn
+2
as in display (1) of [4], suppose that we ﬁrst add the secondrow to the ﬁrst row and next add the second column to the ﬁrst column. Without changing therank of the matrix, these operations produce a matrix of the following form:(1)

As described by [1] and [3], every overlap matrix of the closed-end ladder
L
n

has the form
X,Y n

, and every overlap matrix of the Ringel ladder
R
n

has the form
X,Y,Zn

. (Note thatthe subscripts of
R
n

and
X,Y,Zn

diﬀer by two.) Now we further deﬁne(1)
P

as the set of all matrices over
Z

of the form

;(2)
n
(

Lemma 2.2.
The polynomial
00

(
z
) (
n

equals
00

(

) =
P

) + 2

O
n

.

where
O
n
1
(
z
)
is the rank-distribution polynomial of the closed-end ladder
L
n
2
, and where
P
On
(
z
)
is the rank distribution polynomial over the set
O,Y,Z
odd
n
.Proof.
Note that this case must have
x
=
z
1
and
y
=
z
n
, so the matrix has the following form.
c,x
+
z
1
,y
+
z
n
,
0
,Y,Zn
+2
=
0
c
0 0
···

.
If
c
= 0, then it contributes
P
On
+1
(
z
) to
00
n
+2
(
z
). Otherwise
c
= 1, since there are 2
n
1
choicesof
z
1
,z
2
,
···
,z
n
such that the number of variables in
{
z
1
,z
2
,
···
,z
n
}
equals to 1 is even, itcontributes 2
n
1
z
2
O
n
(
z
) to
00
n
+2
(
z
). Note that
P
En
(
z
) +
P
On
(
z
) =
P
n
(
z
), and the rest followsimmediately by Proposition 2.1.
