(How) does the spectral gap of the $n\times n$ Rubik's cube close with $n$?

Consider the spectrum of the adjacency matrix $A$ of the Cayley graph of the standard, 3x3x3 Rubik's cube generated with the usual quarter-turn and half-turn twists of each face (the Singmaster ...

Solution to the sum of k-step path lengths between node pairs in directed weighted graphs

In a non weighted graph, the adjacency matrix ($A$) raised to the power $k$ will return the number of k-step paths between nodes $i$ and $j$ at the entry $a_{ij}$. Is there an equivalent for weighted ...

Formulas to determine the value of graph energy with addition or deletion of edges

If $G$ is a graph, then the graph energy of $G$ denoted by $E(G)$ is defined as the sum of absolute values of eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix of $G$. It is known that $E(G)\geq E(G-v)$, where $ ...

Computing adjacency matrix eigenvalues by counting closed walks

Let $G$ be a finite undirected graph. A closed walk in $G$ is a walk from any vertex of $G$ to itself. It is relatively straightforward to show that the total number of closed walks of length $k$ in $...

Traces and closed walks that do not close before their time

Let $A$ be the adjacency matrix of a graph. Then, as is well-known and trivial to show, $\mathrm{Tr} A^k$ equals the number of closed walks of length $k$. Is there a similar way to express (a) the ...
