An upper bound for the total chromatic number of dense graphs. (English) Zbl 0767.05048
Let \(\chi''(G)\) be the total chromatic number, \(\Delta(G)\) be the maximum degree, and \(n\) the order of a graph \(G\). This paper shows that \(\chi''(G)\leq\Delta(G)+2k+1\) when \(\Delta(G)\geq n/k\), where \(k\) is a (small) positive integer.
