Total Induced Vertex Stress in Barbell-Like Graphs

Joseph Shiny, Johan Kok, V. Ajitha


This paper introduces new parameters called induced vertex stress and total induced vertex stress in G, respectively. For graphs G and H, aspects of the maximum and minimum total induced vertex stress that can be obtained by 1-edge addition and 2-vertex merging are discussed.


Induced vertex stress, total induced vertex stress, barbell-like graphs.
