On twin edge colorings of graphs. (English) Zbl 1305.05068
Summary: A twin edge \(k\)-coloring of a graph \(G\) is a proper edge coloring of \(G\) with the elements of \(Z_{k}\) so that the induced vertex coloring in which the color of a vertex \(v\) in \(G\) is the sum (in \(Z_{k}\)) of the colors of the edges incident with \(v\) is a proper vertex coloring. The minimum \(k\) for which \(G\) has a twin edge \(k\)-coloring is called the twin chromatic index of \(G\). Among the results presented are formulas for the twin chromatic index of each complete graph and each complete bipartite graph.
