An antimagic labeling of a connected graph G is a bijection from the set of edges E(G) to {1, 2, . . . , |E(G)|} such that all vertex sums are pairwise distinct, where the vertex sum at vertex v is the sum of the labels assigned to edges incident to v. A graph is called antimagic if it has an antimagic labeling. In 1990, Hartsfield and Ringel conjectured that every simple connected graph other than K2 is antimagic; however, the conjecture remains open, even for trees. In this note we prove that ...
An antimagic labeling of a connected graph G is a bijection from the set of edges E(G) to {1, 2, . . . , |E(G)|} such that all vertex sums are pairwise distinct, where the vertex sum at vertex v is the sum of the labels assigned to edges incident to v. A graph is called antimagic if it has an antimagic labeling. In 1990, Hartsfield and Ringel conjectured that every simple connected graph other than K2 is antimagic; however, the conjecture remains open, even for trees. In this note we prove that trees whose vertices of even degree induce a path are antimagic, extending a result given by Liang, Wong, and Zhu [Discrete Math. 331 (2014) 9–14].
