Abstract— In this paper we plan to contribute an even harmonious labeling of some well known graphs. Let G(V,E) be a graph with p vertices and q edges. A graph G(p,q) is said to be even harmonious if there exists an injection f : V → { 0,1,…,2q} such that the induced mapping f*(uv) = (f(u)+f(v)) (mod 2q) is a bijection from E onto { 0,2,4,…,2(q-1)}. Keywords- Harmonious labeling, Path, Cycle, Complete bipartite graph, Bistar.

A function f is called the even harmonious labeling of a graph G(V, E) if f : V → {0, 1, 2, ……., 2q} is injective and the induced function f * : E → {0, 2,…,2(q– 1)} is defined as f*(uv) = (f(u) + f(v)) (mod 2q ) is bijective, the resulting edge labels should be distinct. A graph which admits even harmonious labeling is called an even harmonious graph. Theorem 1.1. If a graph G (p,q) is even harmonious graph then 2q and 0 are the maximal label and the minimal label of vertices respectively . Theorem 1.2. In even harmonious labeling two consecutive integers cannot be the labels of any two vertices in G. II. MAIN RESULTS Theorem 2.1. Proof. Case (i): The number of vertices is even. Let m = 2n Let Pm be the path with vertices vi, 1 ≤ i ≤ m Define f(vi) = 2( i – 1 ), 1 ≤ i ≤ m . Then f is an even harmonious labeling of Pm. Case (ii): The number of vertices is odd. Let m = 2n + 1 Let Pm be the path with vertices vi, 1 ≤ i ≤ m Define f(v2i - 1) = 2( i – 1 ), i = 1,2,…, m/2. f(v2i) = m+ ( 2i – 1 ), i = 1,2,…, m/2 Then f is an even harmonious labeling of Pm. Theorem 2.2. harmonious. The complete bipartite graph Km,n is even A path Pn (n ≥ 2 ) is even harmonious.

I.INTRODUCTION

Throughout this paper, by a graph we mean a finite, undirected, simple graph. For notations and terminology we follow Bondy and Murthy [ 1 ]. Graph labeling where the vertices are assigned values subject to certain conditions have been motivated by practical problems. Labeled graphs serves as models in a wide range of applications such as Coding theory, the x-ray crystallography , to design a communication network addressing system etc. We denoted the path on n vertices by Pn, the cycle on n vertices by Cn, the complete bipartite graph by Km,n and the star graph by K1,n. In [ 3 ] Graham and Sloane have introduced the harmonious labeling of a graph. Zhi – He Liang, Zhan – LiBai [ 4 ] have introduced the odd harmonious labeling of a graph. For a detailed survey on graph labeling we refer to Gallian [2 ]. We refer [ 5] also. Let G(V,E) be a graph with p vertices and q edges. A graph G with q edges is harmonious if there is an injection ‘f’ from the vertices of G to the group of integers modulo q such that when each edge xy is assigned the label (f(x) + f(y)) (mod q), the resulting edge labels should be distinct. A graph G(p,q) is said to be odd harmonious if there exists an injection f : V → {0, 1, 2, …., 2q – 1 } such that induced mapping f*(uv) = (f(u) + f(v)) is bijection from E on to {1, 3, 5, …., 2q - 1}. Then f is said to become an odd harmonious labeling of G. The floor function assigns to the real number x the largest integer that is less than or equal x. The value of the floor function at x is denoted by x . The ceiling function assigns to the real number x the smallest integer that is greater than or equal x. The value of the ceiling function at x is denoted by x .

Proof. Let the vertices sets U and V be the bipartition of Km,n, where U = { uj, 1 ≤ j ≤ m} and V = { vi, 1 ≤ i ≤ n}. Define f(uj) = 2( j – 1 ), 1 ≤ j ≤ m and f(vi) = 2mi, 1 ≤ i ≤ n. Then f is an even harmonious labeling of Km,n.

Proof. Let C2n+1 ( n ≥ 1) be the cycle of odd length with vertices v1,v2, …,v2n+1. Define f(vi) = 2( i – 1 ), 1 ≤ i ≤ 2n+ 1. Then f is an even harmonious labeling of odd cycles. Definition 2.5. The Bistar graph Bm,n is the graph obtained from K2 by joining m pendant edges to one end of K2 and n pendant edges to the other end of K2. Theorem 2.6. The Bistar graph Bm,n is an even harmonious. Proof . Let u, v be the vertices of K2 in Bistar graph Bm,n and U = { uj, 1 ≤ j ≤ m} and V = { v i, 1 ≤ i ≤ n} be the vertices adjacent to u and v respectively. Define f(u) = 0, f(v) = 2q, f(uj) = 2n+2j, 1 ≤ j ≤ m and f(vi) = 2i, 1 ≤ i ≤ n. Then f becomes an even harmonious labeling of Bistar graph For example, even harmonious labeling of the Bistar graph B3,4 is shown in Figure 1. Theorem 2.7. Proof. Let V(K2) = {u1,u2} and V(Knc) = { v1, v2,…, vn} . Define f(u1) = 2(n + 1) , f(u2) = 0 and f(vi) = 2i, 1 ≤ i ≤ n Then f becomes an even harmonious labeling of K2 + Knc. For example, even harmonious labeling of the graph K2 + Knc. is shown in Figure 2. The graph K2 + Knc is even harmonious.

Pn , the kth power of Pn, is the graph Definition 2.8. obtained from the path Pn by adding edges that join all vertices u and v with distance (u,v) = k.

Theorem 2.9. Proof.

2 Let v1,v2,…,vn be the vertices of Pn . Define f(vi) = 2( i – 1), 1 ≤ i ≤ n. Then f is even harmonious. 2 For example, Figure 3 is an even harmonious graph of Pn . 2 The graph Pn is an even harmonious.

Definition 2.10. [3] The friendship graph Fn ( n ≥ 1 ) consists of n triangles with a common vertex. Theorem 2.11. harmonious. Proof. The friendship graph F 2n+1 consists of 2n + 1 triangle with 4n + 3 vertices and 6n + 3 edges. Let v 1 be the common vertex and v1,vi,vi+1 , i= 2,4,…,2(2n+1) be the vertices of each triangle. Define f(v1) = 0, f( v2i +2) = 2(3i +1), i = 0, 1,…, 2n and f(v2j+1) = 2(3j -1), j = 1, 2,…, 2n + 1. Then f becomes an even harmonious graph.
