a graph G, p and q denote the number of vertices and edges respectively. If the vertices or edges

or both of the graphs are assigned values subject to certain conditions, it is known as graph

labeling. A detailed study on variety of applications on graph labeling is carried out in Bloom and

Golomb. Cordial graphs were first introduced by Cahit as a weaker version of both graceful

and harmonious graphs.

The product cordial labeling and k-product cordial labeling of graphs was introduced by

Ponraj.R, Sivakumar.M and Sundaram.M [4,6], in which they proved that some standard and

special graphs admit k-product cordial labeling. The concept of sum cordial labeling was

introduced by J.Shiama  in which she proved that some graphs like path

n, cycle

n, star

n

1, ,etc., are sum cordial graphs. Motivated by these papers, we define edge 3-sum and at most

edge 3-sum cordial labeling of G.

An edge 3-sum cordial graph which admits an edge sum cordial labeling is called at most

edge 3-sum cordial labeling. A graph having at most edge 3-sum cordial labeling is called at most

edge 3-sum cordial graph.

Note:

Every at most edge 3-sum cordial graph is edge 3-sum cordial graph. But the converse need

not be true. For example, consider the 5-pan graph.

It is an edge 3-sum cordial graph. But it is not at most edge 3-sum cordial graph, as it does not

admit edge sum cordial labeling.
