Note on Nordhaus-Gaddum Problems for Colin de Verdière type Parameters
Hall, H. Tracy
We establish the bounds 4 3 6 b 6 b 6 p 2, where b and b are the Nordhaus-Gaddum sum upper bound multipliers, i.e., (G)+(G) 6 bjGj and (G)+(G) 6 bjGj for all graphs G, and and are Colin de Verdiere type graph parameters. The Nordhaus-Gaddum sum lower bound for and is conjectured to be jGj 2, and if these parameters are replaced by the maximum nullity M(G), this bound is called the Graph Complement Conjecture in the study of minimum rank/maximum nullity problems.
