Degree Associated Reconstruction Parameters of Total Graphs

P. Anusha Devi, S. Monikandan


A card (ecard) of a graph G is a subgraph formed by deleting a vertex (an edge). A dacard (da-ecard) specifies the degree of the deleted vertex (edge) along with the card (ecard). The degree associated reconstruction number (degree associated edge reconstruction number ) of a graph G, drn(G) (dern(G)), is the minimum number of dacards (da-ecards) that uniquely determines G. In this paper, we investigate these two parameters for the total graph of certain standard graphs.
