Zeynep Ors Yorgancioglu* , Pinar Dundar, Mehmet Umit Gursoy

DOI: 10.28978/nesciences.379317


In this paper, center coloring and center coloring number are defined, some bounds are established for the center coloring number of a graph in terms of other graphical coloring parameters, and a polynomial time algorithm is proposed in order to calculate the center coloring of a graph.
