Within the spectrum of arithmetic, graph thought which reports a mathe matical constitution on a suite of components with a binary relation, as a well-known self-discipline, is a relative newcomer. In fresh 3 a long time the intriguing and swiftly becoming quarter of the topic abounds with new mathematical devel opments and important functions to real-world difficulties.

Since each edge lies in two faces, we have 2e = 3 /, and H<> by Euler's formula, e = 3n - 6. A planar graph on n vertices with 3n - 6 edges is necesarily maximal; such graphs are called planar triangulations . 10 are planar triangulations. A planar graph can be embedded into the plane in infinitely many ways. The two embeddings of Figure 1 . 1 1 are easily sen to be combinatorially different : the first has faces of length 3 , 3, 4, a nd 6 while the second has faces of lengths 3, 3, 5, and 5. It is an important result of topological graph 14 1 .

Therefore, Hence we IAI = 1 or k, when it is in all cases. o Vertex Connectivity verlex cutset A ioA i 2: k 39 IAI). 4 Connectivity X in a graph is a set of vertices whose deletion increases the number of connected components of X . The connectivity) of a connected graph X in a vertex cutset, and will be denoted by say that X is k-connected.
Therefore, g E H, and because B is an orbit of H we have B = B9 . 6. Primitivity and Connectivity 29 and because H < G, it does not consist of the whole of V , and hence it is 0 a nontrivial block of imprimitivity. 6 Primitivity and Connectivity Our second characterization of primitive permutation groups uses the orbits of G on V x V, and requires some preparation. A path in a directed graph D is a sequence uo , . . , Ur of distinct vertices such that ( Ui l , Ui) is an arc of D for i = 1 , . .
