Let G be a connected graph. For any two vertices u and v, let d(u, v) denote the distance between u and v in G. The maximum distance between any pair of vertices is called the diameter of G and denoted by diam(G). A radio labeling (or multi-level distance labeling) of a connected graph G is a function f : V(G) → {0, 1, 2, 3,…} with the property that |f(u) – f(v)| ≥ diam(G) – d(u, v) + 1 for every two distinct vertices u and v of G. The span of f is defined as max u,v∈ V(G) {|f(u) – f(v)|}. The radio number of G is the minimum span over all radiolabeling of G. In this presentation we will discuss the progress we made towards finding the radio number for cycle graphs during a 2012 summer research program, which is a part of the NSF PRISM grant DMS-1035120 (Proactive Recruitment in Introductory Science and Mathematics).
