The Chromatic Number of Graph Powers

  • NOGA ALON (a1) and BOJAN MOHAR (a2)

It is shown that the maximum possible chromatic number of the square of a graph with maximum degree d and girth g is (1 +o(1))d2 if g = 3, 4, 5 or 6, and is Θ(d2 / log d) if g [ges ] 7. Extensions to higher powers are considered as well.
