We have a regular graph $G$ of degree $m$ on $n$ vertices and we label each of its vertices with the number $1$ through $n$. What can we say about the maximum difference between the numbers of two adjacent vertices. What is the maximum and minimum, what is the minimum for a specific graph?

If I understand your question correctly, I believe the quantity you are asking about is known as graph bandwidth. Perhaps the references on that wiki page will be helpful? –  mhum May 19 '14 at 23:18
