### Is this graph Hamiltonian?

Let $G$ be a simple $2$-connected graph with $m+n$ vertices ($n>m \geq 3$) with degree sequence $(m-1)^m$, $(n-1)^n$; that is, $G$ is degree-equivalent to two disjoint cliques $K_m$, $K_n$ of ...

### Hamiltonian path in divisibility graph

Let $\mathbb{N}$ denote the set of positive integers, and consider the graph $(\mathbb{N}, E)$ where a set $\{a,b\}$ of two distinct positive integers belongs to $E$ if there is an integer $k>1$ ...

### Hamiltonian path in bike-lock graph with $1$ known digit

Motivation. My youngest son has a bike lock with dials, and he forgot the unlocking combination completely, except that he remembered that digit $0$ appeared somewhere in the combination. So it was my ...

### Path of length $n$ but no Hamilton cycle [closed]

What is an example of a simple graph $G = (\{1,\ldots,n\}, E)$, where $n\in\mathbb{N}$ is a positive integer, with the following properties? There is a path in $G$ of length $n$, every vertex has at ...

### Hamilton cycles in $\{0,1\}^n$ with fixed Hamming distance

Let $n>1$ be an integer. For $a,b\in \{0,1\}^n$ let $d_h(a, b)$ denote the Hamming distance of $a$ and $b$. For $k\in \{1,\ldots,n-1\}$ let $H(n,k)$ be the graph on $\{0,1\}^n$ given by the edge ...

### Maximum number of Hamilton paths in a tournament on $n$ vertices

Recall that a tournament is a directed graph $T$ such that for every pair of distinct vertices $\{v,w\}$, exactly one of the ordered pairs $(v,w)$, $(w,v)$ is an arc of $T$. A tournament is strongly ...

### Heuristics for minimum path cover of undirected graph

Suppose you would like to find a set of paths on an undirected connected graph that ensures every vertex is visited exactly once while minimising the number of paths used. In this case, a "path&...

### Generalisation of this circular arrangement of numbers from $1$ to $32$ with two adjacent numbers being perfect squares

I posted this question on MSE, and failed to get the type of answer I wanted. That's why I would like to post it here and wait for the experts to reply. Here's the link to the MSE post, which I ...

### Number of open tours by a biased rook on a specific $f(n)\times 1$ board which end on a $k$-th cell from the right

We have a simple structure - biased rook of the two types. Biased rook of the first kind which make open tours on a specific $f(n)\times 1$ board where $f(n) = \left\lfloor\log_2{2n}\right\rfloor + 1$ ...

### How to construct a hamilton-connected cubic graph? Is it possible?

If we are given a large integer $k$, can we construct a hamiltonian-connected $n$-vertex graph for every even $n\geq k$ such that all its vertices are of degree 3? Is there any reference concerning ...

### Hamiltonian paths on the space of graphs

Disclaimer: I am not a professional graph theorist. Motivation: Let's consider the set $G_N$ of graphs with $N$ vertices where the vertices are assumed to be distinguishable. This set may ...
