### Two cospectral (normal) digraphs which are not orthogonal similar

Preliminaries A complex matrix $A$ is normal when $A$ and $A^*$ commute. A real matrix $A$ is normal when $A$ and $A^t$ commute. Two complex matrices $A$ and $B$ are said to be unitary similar if ...

### Significance of the Eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix of a weighted di-graph

I'm currently running a simulation on a bunch of randomly generated points, each with two randomly selected 'partners' from the set of points. In the simulation the points try to move such that they ...

### The properties of almost all directed graphs

A mathematician on the forum previously requested a reference on human brains modelled as directed graphs. This makes sense as neurons are mostly unidirectional and I have been thinking about similar ...

### Frobenius normal form of a doubly stochastic matrix

If $A \in M_n(\mathbb{C})$, then $A$ is called reducible if there is a permuation matrix $P$ such that $$P^\top A P = \begin{bmatrix} A_{11} & A_{12} \\ 0 & A_{22} \end{bmatrix},$$ in ...

### Proof of the asymptotic expression for the number of self-converse digraphs?

The following expression was mentioned in the master thesis of Alastair Farrugia on Page 199 of his thesis Self-complementary graphs and generalisations: a comprehensive reference manual, M.Sc. Thesis,...

### Groups that can occur as graph automorphisms of a fixed size graph

From theorem $4$ and corollary $1$ in this book we have that graph isomorphism has to do with automorphism group of a graph. We also know every group is the automorphism group of a graph by Frucht's ...

### Algorithms for rooted directed acyclic graph isomorphism

Given two directed acyclic graphs $G_1$ and $G_2$, and their roots $r_1$ and $r_2$, is there a polynomial algorithm to determine if $G_1$ and $G_2$ are isomorphic?

### Does every directed graph have a directed coloring with $4$ colors?

Every finite directed graph has a majority coloring with $4$ colors. (The notion of majority coloring is defined below.) Question. Can every infinite directed graph be majority-colored with $4$ ...

### Decreasing the directed chromatic number of a digraph by adding an edge

The chromatic number of an undirected graph can never be decreased by adding an edge. However, things are not that clear when we deal with coloring directed graphs - but first, the definition of this ...

### Name for Directed Edges in Digraphs

Graph theory originated in German speaking countries and there directed edges are called "Pfeil" which translates to "arrow", which makes sense, because arrows have distinguishable front end and rear ...

### Generalized digraph homomorphisms and graph cores

Given any digraphs $G$ and $H$ we say a surjection $f:V(G)\to V(H)$ reduces $G$ to $H$ if and only if it satisfies $(u,v)\in E(G)\iff (f(u),f(v))\in E(H)$. Where if there exists at least one ...

### Orientability of $\mathbb{Z}^n$

For any set $X$ set $[X]^2 = \{\{x,y\}: x,y\in X, x\neq y\}$. If $n\geq 2$ is an integer, we endow $\mathbb{Z}$ with a graph structure in the following way. If $x,y\in \mathbb{Z}^n$ we say $x,y$ are ...

### an inverse semigroup (and perhaps a $C^*\!$-algebra) associated with a directed graph

The following inverse semigroup associated to a directed graph came up in my research. I've read that from an inverse semigroup one may derive a $C^*\!$-algebra whose generators are partial isometries ...

### Tournaments with exactly one directed Hamiltonian path

Every tournament contains a directed Hamiltonian path (a path visiting every vertex exactly once). Suppose that $T$ is a tournament on $[n]:=\{1,\ldots,n\}$ for some integer $n\geq 2$ with exactly ...
