A note on chromatic uniqueness of graphs. (English) Zbl 0616.05035
There is shown that if simple graph G is chromatically unique, then G has at most two blocks. Furthermore, in the case that G has two blocks, they are both vertex transitive and chromatically unique. Let G be a graph consisting of two blocks H and \(K_ 2\). Then G is chromatically unique iff H is chromatically unique and vertex transitive. This answers of Whitehead and Zhao’s conjecture in the affirmative.
