Weighted-1-antimagic graphs of prime power order. (English) Zbl 1244.05186
Summary: Suppose \(G\) is a graph, \(k\) is a non-negative integer. We say \(G\) is weighted-\(k\)-antimagic if for any vertex weight function \(w:V\to \mathbb N\), there is an injection \(f:E\to \{1,2,\dots ,\mid E\mid +k\}\) such that for any two distinct vertices \(u\) and \(v\),
\[ \sum _{e\in E(v)}f(e)+w(v)\neq \sum _{e\in E(u)}f(e)+w(u). \] There are connected graphs \(G\neq K_{2}\) which are not weighted-1-antimagic.
It was asked in T. Wong and X. Zhu [J. Graph Theory 70, No. 3, 348–350 (2012; Zbl 1244.05192)] whether every connected graph other than \(K_{2}\) is weighted-2-antimagic, and whether every connected graph on an odd number of vertices is weighted-1-antimagic. It was proved in T. Wong and X. Zhu [loc. cit] that if a connected graph \(G\) has a universal vertex, then \(G\) is weighted-2-antimagic, and moreover if \(G\) has an odd number of vertices, then \(G\) is weighted-1-antimagic.
In this paper, by restricting to graphs of odd prime power order, we improve this result in two directions: if \(G\) has odd prime power order \(p^{z}\) and has total domination number 2 with the degree of one vertex in the total dominating set not a multiple of \(p\), then \(G\) is weighted-1-antimagic. If \(G\) has odd prime power order \(p^{z}\), \(p \neq 3\) and has maximum degree at least \(|V(G)| - 3\), then \(G\) is weighted-1-antimagic.
