5. 6. 8. 9. Restate the Map Coloring problem from Student Activity Sheet 9 in terms of a Graph Coloring problem. You are the publisher of a new edition of the world atlas. As you prepare the different maps for printing, you need to make sure that countries adjacent to each other (sharing a common border) are given different colors. Cases 7, 10, and 3, in that order.7 In the spring of Youngs conducted a seminar on the subject, and his colleague W. Gustin8 became interested in what are called the regular cases, namely, those in which (n - 3)(n - 4) = 0 mod He introduced the very powerful weapon of current graphs and announced solutions to Cases 3, 4, and.

So the number of possibilities is 3 x 2 = 6. • As the state T is not connected, it can be mapped with any of the 3 colors. There will be 3 possibilities to color this state. • So, there can be 6 x 3 = 18 solutions that can be obtained by coloring each of the six possibilities with 3 times with 3 colors to the state TA. In some cases, like the first example, we could use fewer than four. In many cases we could use a lot more colors if we wanted to, but a maximum of four colors is enough! This result has become one of the most famous theorems of mathematics and is known as The Four Color Theorem.

Heffter's complete map with 9 regions on the surface of genus 3. The map has 23 vertices (22 tri-valent and one of valence 6). Its 9 octagonal faces are numbered $1, \dots, 9$. For each one, the table lists the cyclic order of the other faces encountered along its border. Corners marked with an arc are those that belong to the valence-6 vertex.

Precise formulation of the theorem. In graph-theoretic terms, the theorem states that for loopless planar, the chromatic number of its dual graph is (∗) ≤.

The intuitive statement of the four color theorem, i.e. "given any separation of a plane into contiguous regions, the regions can be colored using at most four colors so that no two adjacent regions have the same color", needs to be.

Heawood studied the problem further and came to a number of fascinating conclusions: I Kempe’s proof, particularly his device of “Kempe chains” (a sequence of countries that alternates between just two colors), does suﬃce to show that any map whatever can be colored with at most 5 (not 4) colors.

We say that the. This result was proved by Dirac [3] [5] for the torus and ε ≥ 4 and by Albertson and Hutchinson [1] for ε = 1, 3. Franklin [7] proved that the coloring problem for the Klein bottle has not the. Map-Coloring Problems.

As indicated in sectionthe map coloring problem can be turned into a graph coloring problem. Figure 5. Pop v off S 5, delete it from the graph, and let v 1, v 2, v 3, v 4, v 5 be the former neighbors of v in clockwise planar order, where v 1 is the neighbor of degree at most 6.

We check if v 1 is adjacent to v 3 (which we can do in constant time due to the degree of v 1). There are two cases: If v 1 is not adjacent to v 3, we can merge these two. The four-color conjecture for a sphere is a famous unsolved problem, and the only information available today is that the chromatic number of a sphere is either four or five.

On the other hand, it has been known for three-quarters of a century that the chromatic number of a torus is seven. Orientable Special Cases -- Outline for General Cases -- 6.

Heawood noticed Kempe's mistake and also observed that if one was satisfied with proving only five colors are needed, one could run through the above argument (changing only that the minimal counterexample requires 6 colors) and use Kempe chains in the degree 5.

Map Coloring and Graph Theory. It turns out that this problem has a fairly long history. Wikipedia informs us that British cartographer Francis Guthrie described the issue in when mapping English counties, and proposed what is known as the Four-Color-Theorem. Essentially, the latter states that (under certain conditions, discussed below.
