On betweennessuniform graphs
Gago Alvarez, Silvia; Coronicová Hurajová, Jana; Madaras, Tomas
Czechoslovak mathematical journal
Date of publication: 201309
Journal article
Read the abstract View Share Reference managersThe betweenness centrality of a vertex of a graph is the fraction of shortest paths between all pairs of vertices passing through that vertex. In this paper, we study properties and constructions of graphs whose vertices have the same value of betweenness centrality (betweennessuniform graphs); we show that this property holds for distanceregular graphs (which include strongly regular graphs) and various graphs obtained by graph cloning and local join operation. In addition, we show that, for sufficiently large $n$, there are superpolynomially many betweennessuniform graphs on $n$ vertices, and explore the structure of betweennessuniform graphs having a universal or subuniversal vertex.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersMetrics in graphs provide measures of proximity between vertices. The classical shortpath distances can be replaced for more general metrics, as the adjusted forest metric introduced by Chebotarev et al. in [2]. Other related distance is the one provided for the resistance distance of a network [3]. The objective of our work is to generalize the adjusted forest metric related to Laplacian operators to the adjusted forest metric related to Schr¨odinger operators, under the functional analysis framework. Furthermore, we show that it can be computed in terms ofthe effective resistances of the network.

Electronic journal of linear algebra
Date of publication: 201211
Journal article
Read the abstract View Share Reference managersRegular boundary value problems on a distanceregular graph associated with Schrodinger operators are analyzed. These problems include the cases in which the boundary has one or two vertices. In each case, the Green matrices are given in terms of two families of orthogonal polynomials, one of them corresponding with the distance polynomials of the distanceregular graphs.

A simple proof of the spectral excess theorem for distanceregular graphs
Fiol Mora, Miquel Àngel; Gago Alvarez, Silvia; Garriga Valle, Ernest
Linear algebra and its applications
Date of publication: 20100415
Journal article
Read the abstract View Share Reference managersThe spectral excess theorem provides a quasispectral characterization for a (regular) graph Γ with d+1 distinct eigenvalues to be distanceregular graph, in terms of the excess (number of vertices at distance d) of each of its vertices. The original approach, due to Fiol and Garriga in 1997, was obtained by using a local approach, so giving a characterization of the socalled pseudodistanceregularity around a vertex. In this paper we present a new simple projection method based in a global point of view, and where the mean excess plays an essential role. 
Design of highly synchronizable and robust networks
Estrada Roger, Ernesto; Gago Alvarez, Silvia; Caporossi, Gilles
Automatica
Date of publication: 201011
Journal article
Read the abstract View Share Reference managersIn this paper, the design of highly synchronizable, sparse and robust dynamical networks is addressed. Better synchronizability means faster synchronization of the oscillators, sparsity means a low ratio of links per nodes and robustness refers to the resilience of a network to the random failures or intentional removal of some of the nodes/links. Golden spectral dynamical networks (graphs) are those for which the spectral spread (the difference between the largest and smallest eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix) is equal to the spectral gap (the difference between the two largest eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix) multiplied by the square of the golden ratio. These networks display the property of ‘‘smallworldness’’, are very homogeneous and have large isoperimetric (expansion) constant, together with a very high synchronizability and robustness to failures of individual oscillators. In particular, the regular bipartite dynamical networks, reported here by the first time, have the best possible expansion and consequently are the most robust ones against node/link failures or intentional attacks.

On golden spectral graphs

Date: 20090326
Report
Read the abstract Access to the full text Share Reference managersThe concept of golden spectral graphs is introduced and some of their general properties reported. Golden spectral graphs are those having a golden proportion for the spectral ratios defined on the basis of the spectral gap, spectral spread and the difference between the second largest and the smallest eigenvalue of the adjacency matrix. They are good expanders and display excellent synchronizability. Here we report some new construction methods as well as several of their topological parameters.

The betweenness centrality of a graph
Gago Alvarez, Silvia
Date: 200705
Report
Read the abstract Access to the full text Share Reference managersA measure of the centrality of a vertex of a graph is the portion of shortest paths crossing through it between other vertices of the graph. This is called betweenness centrality and here we study some of its general properties, relations with distance parameters (diameter, mean distance), local parameters, symmetries, etc. Some bounds for this parameter are obtained, using them to improve known bounds for the mean distance of the graph. 
Eigenvalue distribution in scale free graphs
Gago Alvarez, Silvia
Date: 200708
Report
Read the abstract Access to the full text Share Reference managersScale free graphs can be found very often as models of real networks and are characterized by a power law degree distribution, that is, for a constant $\gamma\geq 1$ the number of vertices of degree $d$ is proportional to $d^{\gamma}$. Experimental studies show that the eigenvalue distribution also follows a power law for the highest eigenvalues. Hence it has been conjectured that the power law of the degrees determines the power law of the eigenvalues. In this paper we show that we can construct a scale free graph with non highest eigenvalue power law distribution. For $\gamma=1$ we can construct a scale free graph with small spectrum and a regular graph with eigenvalue power law distribution.
