Henceevery connected graph with at least one cut-vertex contains at least two end-blocks. In this context, another result that is often useful is presented.

Its proof will become evident in the next chapter. Theorem 2. Then G contains a cut-vertex v with the property that, with at most one exception, all blocks of G containing v are end-blocks. Another interesting property of blocks of graphs was pointed out by Hararyand Norman [HN2]. Proof Suppose that G is a connected graph whose center Cen G does not lie within a single block of G.

Thus Cen G lies in a single block of G. Hence Cl block G is noncritical if and only if there exists a vertex v of G such that G- v is also a block.

There is an 38 Cut-vertices, bridges and blocks Structure and symmetry of graphs Proof Figure 2. A graph G is a minimal block if G is a block and for every edge e, the graph G - e is not a block. The block GI of Figure 2.

In each of the graphs of Figure 2. All minimal and critical blocks have this property, as we shall see.

Suppose that G is a minimal block of order at least 4, but that G contains no vertices of degree 2. Thus, G contains a vertex W such that G - W is a block.

Let e be an edge of G incident with w. Since G is a minimal block, G - e is not a block, and therefore G - e contains a cut-vertex u iow.

Therefore, W has degree 1 in G - u and degree 2 in G. This is a contradiction.

Proof For each vertex x of G, there exists a vertex y of G - x such that G - x - y is disconnected. Among all such pairs x, y of vertices of G, let u, v be a pair such that G - U - v is disconnected and contains a component GI of minimum order k.

Let Gz denote the union of the components of G - u - v that are different from G1.

We now consider two cases. Case 1.

Graphs & Digraphs – Gary Chartrand

Assume that Wz E V H. Case 2. Assume that Wz E V G z.

If either H u or H v is trivial, then G has a vertex namely u or v of degree 2; so we may assume that H u and H v are nontrivial. However, G - WI - U is then disconnected and has,a component of order less than k, again producing a contradiction. If P is a given u-v path of G, does there always exist jl u-v path Q such that P and Q are internally disjoint u-v paths? Characterize those graphs G which H is complete. Prove that H is bipartite.Corollary 2.

Corollary 2.

Hence P and C have a vertex in common different from u.

Prove that a graph G of order at least 3 is nonseparable if and only if every pair of elements of G lie on a common cycle of G.

Then among the blocks of G, there are at least two which contain exactly one cut-vertex of G.
