Optimal Monohedral Tilings Of Hyperbolic Surfaces, 2023 Rice University

#### Optimal Monohedral Tilings Of Hyperbolic Surfaces, Leonardo Digiosia, Jahangir Habib, Jack Hirsch, Lea Kenigsberg, Kevin Li, Dylanger Pittman, Jackson Petty, Christopher Xue, Weitao Zhu

*Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal*

The hexagon is the least-perimeter tile in the Euclidean plane for any given area. On hyperbolic surfaces, this "isoperimetric" problem differs for every given area, as solutions do not scale. Cox conjectured that a regular k-gonal tile with 120-degree angles is isoperimetric. For area π/3, the regular heptagon has 120-degree angles and therefore tiles many hyperbolic surfaces. For other areas, we show the existence of many tiles but provide no conjectured optima. On closed hyperbolic surfaces, we verify via a reduction argument using cutting and pasting transformations and convex hulls that the regular 7-gon is the optimal n-gonal tile of …

The Determining Number And Cost Of 2-Distinguishing Of Select Kneser Graphs, 2023 Hampden-Sydney College

#### The Determining Number And Cost Of 2-Distinguishing Of Select Kneser Graphs, James E. Garrison

*Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal*

A graph $G$ is said to be \emph{d-distinguishable} if there exists a not-necessarily proper coloring with $d$ colors such that only the trivial automorphism preserves the color classes. For a 2-distinguishing labeling, the \emph{ cost of $2$-distinguishing}, denoted $\rho(G),$ is defined as the minimum size of a color class over all $2$-distinguishing colorings of $G$. Our work also utilizes \emph{determining sets} of $G, $ sets of vertices $S \subseteq G$ such that every automorphism of $G$ is uniquely determined by its action on $S.$ The \emph{determining number} of a graph is the size of a smallest determining set. We investigate …

Iterated Jump Graphs, 2023 University of Washington, Seattle

#### Iterated Jump Graphs, Fran Herr, Legrand Jones Ii

*Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal*

The jump graph J(G) of a simple graph G has vertices which represent edges in G where two vertices in J(G) are adjacent if and only if the corresponding edges in G do not share an endpoint. In this paper, we examine sequences of graphs generated by iterating the jump graph operation and characterize the behavior of this sequence for all initial graphs. We build on work by Chartrand et al. who showed that a handful of jump graph sequences terminate and two sequences converge. We extend these results by showing that there are no non-trivial repeating sequences of jump …

The Chromatic Index Of Ring Graphs, 2023 Georgia State University

#### The Chromatic Index Of Ring Graphs, Lilian Shaffer

*Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal*

The goal of graph edge coloring is to color a graph *G* with as few colors as possible such that each edge receives a color and that adjacent edges, that is, different edges incident to a common vertex, receive different colors. The chromatic index, denoted *χ′(G)*, is the minimum number of colors required for such a coloring to be possible. There are two important lower bounds for *χ′(G)* on every graph: maximum degree, denoted *∆(G)*, and density, denoted *ω(G)*. Combining these two lower bounds, we know that every graph’s chromatic index must be at least *∆(G)* or …

Outer Independent Double Italian Domination Of Some Graph Products, 2023 Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematical Sciences, University of Mazandaran, Babolsar, Iran

#### Outer Independent Double Italian Domination Of Some Graph Products, Rouhollah Jalaei, Doost Ali Mojdeh

*Theory and Applications of Graphs*

An outer independent double Italian dominating function on a graph $G$ is a function $f:V(G)\rightarrow\{0,1,2,3\}$ for which each vertex $x\in V(G)$ with $\color{red}{f(x)\in \{0,1\}}$ then $\sum_{y\in N[x]}f(y)\geqslant 3$ and vertices assigned $0$ under $f$ are independent. The outer independent double Italian domination number $\gamma_{oidI}(G)$ is the minimum weight of an outer independent double Italian dominating function of graph $G$. In this work, we present some contributions to the study of outer independent double Italian domination of three graph products. We characterize the Cartesian product, lexicographic product and direct product of custom graphs in terms of this parameter. We also provide …

Bangladesh is blessed with abundant solar resources. Solar power is considered the most desirable energy source to mitigate the high energy demand of this densely populated country. Although various articles deal with solar energy applications in Bangladesh, no detailed review can be found in the literature. Therefore, in this study, we report on the current scenario of renewable energy in Bangladesh and the most significant potential of solar energy’s contribution among multiple renewable energy resources in mitigating energy demand. One main objective of this analysis was to outline the overall view of solar energy applications in Bangladesh to date, as …

The Babelogic Of Mathematics, 2023 Aravali Asset Management, Singapore

*Journal of Humanistic Mathematics*

How would the Bible written about a Mathematical God start, describing the Creation of Mathematics and Logic? How would Rigveda's "Nasadiya sukta" read if it were describing the Void before mathematics was "born"? Here is an attempt at a partial answer, one which takes the original Genesis chapter and the Nasadiya sukta and makes suitable changes to create a fairly consistent, if somewhat anachronistic narrative (with the slight mixing up of Bertrand Russell and Lobachevsky / Bolyai attributable to "Babelogic"), along with a new ending to the Beginning...

Locked In Functions: A Short Poem For Robert Langlands, 2023 Polytechnic University of the Philippine and University of Santo Tomas

#### Locked In Functions: A Short Poem For Robert Langlands, Virgilio A. Rivas

*Journal of Humanistic Mathematics*

This short poem is inspired by Robert Langlands, recipient of the 2018 Abel Prize. The poem tries to sum up in poetic language, as brief but substantial as it can be, the philosophical and rhetorical connotation of his contributions to mathematics, from automorphic forms to number theory, and the famous Langlands programme, among others. Also partly inspired by Edward Frenkel's tribute to Langlands, the book *Love and Mathematics, *the poem seeks to capture the philosophical beauty of mathematics that privileges the importance of 'functions' over 'passions', consistent with Langlands' purely mathematical side.
