How does one store a graph in the database? Typically the vertices are labelled by a set {1, 2, …, n}. The edges can be denoted in many different ways: adjacency matrix, incidence matrix, adjacency list, to name a few. But what if the vertices are labelled in a more creative way, such that the labels of the vertices themselves denote their adjacencies? This eliminates the need for storing the edges! This topic is part of a heavily researched field called graph labelling, with connections to coding theory and information theory. In this talk, we will explore a type of graph labelling known as sum labelling. This is joint work with Henning Fernau
