Vertex **coloring**: When used without any qualification, a **coloring** of a **graph** is almost always a proper vertex **coloring**, namely a labeling of the graph’s vertices with colors such that no two vertices sharing the same edge have the same color. Since a vertex with a loop could never be properly colored, it is understood that graphs in this context are loopless. The terminology of using colors for vertex labels goes back to map **coloring**. Labels like red and blue are only used when the number of is small, and normally it is understood that

Let G be a **graph** with vertex set V(G) and let C be a set of colors. A **coloring** of G is an assignment of colors to the vertices of G such that adjacent vertices have distinct colors. The set of vertices with any one color is called a color class of G. Each color class forms an independent set of vertices. A k-**coloring** of G is a **coloring** of G using k colors. The minimum cardinal k for which G has a k-**coloring** is called the chromatic number of the **graph** G and is denoted by X(G). If ( ) = , then G is called a k-chromatic **graph**. A **graph** G is called a k-colorable **graph**, if G has a **coloring** using at most k colors. An edge **coloring** of a **graph** G is an assignment of colors to the edges of a **graph** .G such that adjacent edges have distinct colors. A k-edge **coloring** of G is an edge **coloring** of G using k colors. The minimum cardinal k for which G has a kedge **coloring** is called the edge chromatic number of the **graph** G and is denoted by Vizing [96, 97] obtained the best bound for the edge chromatic number of a **graph** as follows: Δ(G) ≤ χ (G) ≤ ∆(G) + 1. The inequalities of these types are known as Vizing-type results.

The vertex **coloring** of a **graph** is **coloring** the vertices of the **graph** in such a way that adjacent vertices have different colors. Motivated by the problem of frequency assignments in cellular networks, Even et.al [3] and Smorodinsky [6] introduced the concept of conflict-free **coloring**. Pach and Tarados [5] instituted the idea of conflict **coloring** through graphs and hyper graphs. Glebov et.al [4] further brought forwarded the concept of conflict-free **coloring** through simple graphs. The Extended Duplicate **Graph** of Twig graphs was introduced by Thirusanguetal [7]. Other kind of labelling are studied in [8-13].

Fuzzy graphs were introduced by Rosenfeld [2], ten years after Zadeh’s landmark paper‘‘Fuzzy Sets” [8]. Fuzzy **graph** theory is now finding numerous applications in modern science and technology especially in the fields of information theory, neural network, expert systems, cluster analysis, medical diagnosis, control theory, etc. Rosenfeld has obtained the fuzzy analogues of several basic **graph**-theoretic concepts like bridges, paths, cycles, trees and connectedness and established some of their properties [8]. Bhattacharya [11] has established some connectivity concepts regarding fuzzy cut nodes and fuzzy bridges. Arindam Dey and Anita Pal 170 In **graph** theory, arc analysis is not very important as all arcs are strong in the sense of [4]. But in fuzzy graphs it is very important to identify the nature of arcs and no such analysis on arcs is available in the literature except the division of arcs as strong and non strong in [12]. Depending on the strength of an arc, the authors Sunil Mathew and Sunitha[13] classify strong arcs into two types namely α -strong and β-strong and introduce two other types of arcs in fuzzy graphs which are not strong and are termed as δ and δ* arcs. **Graph** **coloring** is one of the most important concepts in **graph** theory and is used in many real time applications like job scheduling, aircraft scheduling, computer network security, map **coloring** and GSM mobile phone networks, automatic channel allocation for small wireless local area networks. The proper **coloring** of a **graph** is the **coloring** of the vertices with minimal number of colors such that no two adjacent vertices should have the same color. The minimum number of colors is called as the chromatic number and the **graph** is called properly colored **graph**. The fuzzy **coloring** of a fuzzy **graph** was defined by the authors in Eslahchi and Onagh [9]. Then Pourpasha [10] also introduced different approaches to color the fuzzy **graph**.

Let G = ( V E , ) be a **graph**, where V is a set of vertices and E is a set of edges of G. A vertex **coloring** of a **graph** G is a **coloring** to all the vertices of G with p colors so that no two adjacent vertices have the same color. Such the **graph** is called p -**coloring**. The minimal number p is called the chromatic number of G, and is de- noted by χ ( ) G . The so-called Four Color Problem is that for any plane **graph** G, χ ( ) G ≤ 4 [1].

condition ||𝑉 | − |𝑉 || ≤ 1 holds for every pair of (𝑖, 𝑗), then G is said to be equitably k-colorable. The smallest integer k for which G is equitably k-colorable is known as Equitable chromatic number of G and it is denoted by 𝜒 (𝐺) [7, 5, 10, 1]. Since Equitable **coloring** is a proper **coloring** with additional constraints, we have 𝜒(𝐺) ≤ 𝜒 (𝐺) for any **graph** G [3]. In some discrete industrial systems one can encounter the problem of equitable partitioning of a system with binary conflicting relations into conflict-free sub systems. Such situations can be modelled by means of a equitable **graph** **coloring**.

Hence the family ^ = V & , V ' satisfies our definition of vertex **coloring** of strong hesitancy fuzzy **graph**. We find that any family of hesitancy fuzzy sets having less than two members could not satisfy our definition. Hence in this case the chromatic number F is 2.

The stepwise procedure described in the previous section is easily modified to give a backtracking algorithm, which for any input **graph** will produce the correct answer to the question of whether a 3- **coloring** exists. Whenever STEP 3(ii) fails to reduce the current matrix, the algorithm could branch into two possibilities; for some two rows either to replace them both by their sum, or to replace then both by their difference. Then STEP 1 would be replaced by a backtracking step in case no **coloring** can be found, unless no further backtracking is possible and the algorithm halts with a negative answer.

We color the nodes of a finite simple **graph** G V,E using colors. We assume that the **coloring** satisfies the following conditions: 1) Each node of receives ex- actly one color; 2) Adjacent nodes in never receive the same color. We will call this an type **coloring** of the nodes of with

A method of **coloring** graphs to assist the manufacturing cells project was presented and discussed in the present article. The method is grounded on a procedure that un- derstands computing dissimilarities among parts and the **coloring** of a threshold **graph**, which aims at grouping the parts in families and the machines in subsets, so that a single subset of machines corresponds to each family of parts and vice versa.

Any other remarkable work from the sector of allotted algorithms designed for **graph** **coloring** is the distributed largest First(DLF) set of rules introduced in Kubale and Kuszner (2002). DLF is an development over an set of rules for randomly ordering the nodes and the usage of this order to allow nodes to choose colours below the constraint that shades which have been previously assigned to neighbors cannot be used. DLF differs from the authentic set of rules version inside the order of the nodes. In DLF, the higher degree of a node the sooner the node will be able to pick out a coloration. The random order is most effective used to break ties among nodes that have the equal degree. DLF carried out higher results than the original set of rules on random graphs.

Abstract —A synchronizing of a deterministic au- tomaton is a word in the alphabet of colors ( consid- ered as letters ) of its edges that maps the automaton to a single state. A **coloring** of edges of a directed **graph** is synchronizing if the **coloring** turns the **graph** into a deterministic ﬁnite automaton possessing a syn- chronizing word.
