Tesfaye Mengiste at Purdue University. His current research area is Molecular Genetics of Plant Immunity. As a translational scientist, Dr. AbuQamar has been able to take forward his basic research using genomics, transcriptomics and gene functional approaches to agricultural and field applications, and back to the lab to know more about basic science.

The ultimate goal is to substantially reduce the devastating impact of diseases on plants. In the UAE, as in other countries in the world, plants fight to survive harsh environmental stresses, including plant pathogens. Traditional horticultural and chemical practices have proven their limitations, or even negative impacts on the environment and human health. Therefore, genetic engineering and biological control can limit the increases of pathogen populations, and often suppress the plant tissue destroying activities of pathogens.

For example, B. All research findings are the result of research projects carried out by Dr. Synan has published over 50 publications in highly impact international journals.

Professor Basel Al-Ramadi first encountered immunology during his undergraduate studies at Edinburgh University some 30 years ago. At that time, immunology as a medical discipline was still going through a formative process. Despite the relative immaturity of immunology, Professor Al-Ramadi was fascinated by the intricacies and potential impact of immunology on disease. He decided to pursue a postgraduate degree in the subject. It was a fortunate decision as he was then closely involved with the revolution in immunology that took place.

For the next seven years he was fortunate to work alongside immunologists and witness many exciting discoveries in the field. The challenge was to continue working in a highly competitive field at a relatively young institution. The opportunity was to utilize his experience to develop immunological research in the UAE. The record shows that this has been a success. The CMHS cooperates with Tawam Hospital and other international immunologists in order to further studies in immunology.

Their first breakthrough was double-blind, controlled clinical trials.

They also established a strong translational cancer immunology research program in the CMHS. These investigations have received more than AED 4 million in grants, which has helped to train more than 30 MSc. D students, immunology fellows and undergraduate medical students.

They have also published nearly 80 articles in top scientific journals. They have one son, Khalil, who is completing his Ph. D studies in the USA. Basel enjoys reading, swimming, dining with friends and traveling. His research focuses on the development of chemical tools to better understand the role of vitamins and metabolites in the human body.

He is particularly interested in vitamin D targets and narrow-spectrum therapeutics. As part of this research, he recently developed an innovative vitamin D test to measure vitamin D deficiency in the Emirati population. Shah is also seeking to commercialize this test by implementing it in UAE hospitals. He has also worked with Kingston University to develop a new test that detects kidney disease at an early stage in humans. His other research interest is the bioanalysis of drugs and steroids in human and animal hair by using enzyme linked immune-sorbent assays, liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry instruments.

He has recently developed a test used for doping control in camel racing. After significant news coverage in the UAE, Iltaf has been asked to record an interview with ITV news in London to explain the science behind these innovations in camel racing drug tests. Iltaf completed a B. Sc and Ph. D with Kingston University, England. He has worked as postdoctoral fellow with Professor Naughton at Kingston and then followed this with a lectureship at the same University. His graduate, Ph.

D and postdoctoral work was mainly on the bioanalytical aspects of small molecules in human bodily fluids. He has also investigated the use of specialised bioanalytical techniques for large molecules proteins and peptides. He is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Shah has received a number of awards for teaching and research, and is the author of more than 50 research articles. He hold a teaching qualification and is a fellow of HEA. He also has management qualifications from the Chartered Management Institute where he remains a member. An avid sports fan Iltaf follows Manchester United and enjoys cricket.

Other hobbies include singing when he is not relaxing in the company of his wife and kids. Professor Nihel Chabrak believes we should be looking at new approaches to promote growth alongside social welfare. Development should consider not only the here and now, but how generations to come will be able to shape their future lives. She is researching how to promote economic connections between macro objectives, such as sustainability, and yet still create more micro incentives for the growth of businesses.

In cooperation with colleagues from other well-known international research institutions, she is working on reforming finance, governance and accounting in order to support growth. Growth is about wellbeing as well as development. It is not only measured by GDP but by the dispersion, composition and sustainability of that growth. Policy makers should aim for an inclusiveness that allows people to transform their lives. Economic growth is an important determinant of wellbeing but it is not the only one. Social and ecological factors are also important indicators of wellbeing, and in some cases, are directly related to it.

Countries should pursue sustainable growth so that future generations can enjoy the same level of prosperity as now. Therefore, we should maintain our productive base across generations. This includes human, health and natural capital. According to Professor Chabrak, it is the concept of shareholder value maximization that has aggressively degraded natural capital and created inequalities in the economy and wider society. As well as conducting this research, Professor Chabrak is Program Director at the UAEU Science and Innovation Park, where she is promoting value-driven startups and encouraging businesses that are more inclusive and sustainable.

Among the startups in the incubation program is Green Steps Energy. This is a UAE startup company founded by four female engineering entrepreneurs. Their vision is to establish a citizenship movement for a greener planet. They have designed an energy generating carpet called Bezeo that transforms kinetic energy into electrical energy. Another startup she helped with is Aroma Niche. This is an eco-friendly aromatherapy product which uses plants native to the UAE and Gulf region.

This helps to preserve local heritage while offering a unique product. As UAE team leader for the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor GEM program - the largest on-going, international research program on entrepreneurship in the world - Professor Chabrak is interested in researching the links between entrepreneurship and wellbeing. With her colleague, Dr. Chafik Bouhaddioui, she has developed a long-term research project using data from the GEM program. The purpose of this research is to examine the potential relationship between entrepreneurship and happiness in the UAE in order to help policy makers evaluate entrepreneurship as a measure of wellbeing and to encourage further growth.

She is also involved with a unique leadership course that utilizes both ontological and phenomenological approaches. She is a joint Tunisian and French citizen. Before, that she was a Business and IT consultant. She has published articles and served on several editorial boards of international journals. Professor Chabrak lives in Al Ain with her cat Candy and looks forward to retiring to a remote island surrounded by dogs and cats.

Research and responsibility go hand-in-hand for Dr Ossama Osman, as he combines his work in research with service to the community and guiding students to become leaders. A graduate of the University of Cairo Medical School, he completed four years of accredited residency training in psychiatry at the Southern Illinois University SIU School of Medicine in the US, where he made his first impact on the world of research. Having focused his work on the neurochemical and neuroendocrine mechanisms in mood disorders during his time at NIMH — with his published work contributing to the development of new knowledge on the mechanics of the brain — he served as a full-time faculty member at several US universities for almost a decade.

During this time, Dr Osman developed the first schizophrenia research program at Bay Pines VA Medical Center in Florida; returned to SIU to establish an innovative academic and training program in developmental disabilities; and led the creation of clinical and academic programs in community mental health, substance abuse, and developmental disabilities at Mercer University College of Medicine in Georgia. He also became its first Medical Director, opening up educational and training opportunities for both medical students and residents. In his 13 years in Al Ain, he has secured numerous UAEU research grants and collaborated with other researchers at both local and international level, with his partners including institutions such as the Harvard Program for Trauma and Recovery.

His research work has involved multidisciplinary studies of disorders in mental health, encompassing obesity, bariatrics, psycho-dermatology, hormonal and trauma-related conditions, and stress, and he is an active member of the Neuroscience Research Priority Group at CMHS.

Just as important as his research work is his commitment to support the career development and wellbeing of students. Having served as its first faculty director for six years, he saw this program grow to the point where, in , it branched out into three initiatives in different emirates, and was pivotal to its accreditation by the US-based Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. During this time, Dr Osman was chosen to chair the Arab Board of Psychiatry Committee on curriculum development, credentialing and accreditation, and continues to perform a vital liaison function.

Since its establishment, it has graduated more than 60 mental health professionals — most of them UAEU alumni — who are now based at major hospitals around the UAE. He has also been a significant contributor to Continuing Medical Education programs in the UAE and abroad, and regularly organizes and presents at regional and international psychiatric and neuroscience conferences. In his spare time, he likes to play squash, table tennis, swim and to travel across the globe. Many people talk about mapping out their career. For Dr Naeema Al Hosani, that takes on a more literal meaning. Since arriving at UAEU, she has been heavily involved in scholarship, teaching, and service, in addition to holding senior administrative positions at departmental, collegial, and university level, including chairing and being a member of numerous committees.

Her professional life has two aspects. On the research side, she has a high-caliber publications record — as a single author and a co-author — with her work being published in top-ranking Western academic journals and her experience and insight seeing her make presentations at domestic, regional, and international conferences. Dr Al Hosani participated in the transfer of groundbreaking Western research to an Arab audience by translating significant, globally-important books in her area of specialization. The outstanding nature of her research has led to her winning many grants and being awarded prominent accolades, including the UAEU Award for Distinction in Research, as well as being honored by the UAEU Provost for her publication record.

In the teaching field, Dr Al Hosani has carved a reputation for reliability, resourcefulness, and dynamism, as an excellent planner and organizer, and for her dedication to creating a vibrant learning environment. Dr Al Hosanis stature and expertise has seen her make a valuable impact to enriching knowledge and opportunity across UAE society. Her impressive community service record includes cooperation with local universities and government bodies, such as the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Youth and Culture, the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Presidential Affairs and the Ministry of the Interior.

And she has established many cooperation initiatives aimed at strengthening connections between UAEU's academic community and wider UAE society, by establishing avenues of dialogue, outreach, and knowledge exchange. Think of climate change, and you may immediately think of melting ice caps or vanishing rainforests — but the high-impact research that Dr David Thomson leads on the issue at United Arab Emirates University UAEU has a very different, and equally important, geographical focus.

Having published his first work on climate change in the s, as a PhD student at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, he has since been involved in studies into related topics including climate variability, seasonality, phenology, changing rainfall patterns, and species decline. But since , when he took up a faculty position at the University of Hong Kong, his research focus has primarily been on the vulnerability of the hotter parts of the world to climate change, and whether temperatures may already be too high for many of their species.

In this field of research, Dr Thomson supervises a postgraduate student team, and has also involved 16 undergraduates in the last two years. Their work has featured at numerous conferences, and they have raised its profile and purpose among the UAE community through their outreach efforts. The students are studying something real, then taking their work out into the public domain, where they can explain to the public and to decision-makers why it is important.

Dr Thomson takes this work beyond the laboratory, too. As a respected thought-leader and influencer on climate change, he participates in climate summits, contributes to media discussions, government working groups, and consultations, and is regularly invited to directly address leaders in the field of climate change.

These days, however, he dives into the depths of research, rather than oceans — research which aims to unlock new discoveries surrounding critical health issues. Now based in the Department of Physiology of the College of Medicine and Health Sciences at United Arab Emirates University, Chris amassed an entirely different set of life experiences before entering academia and science. His previous career was in the commercial diving industry, where he spent much of the s after completing his training in the UK coastal town of Plymouth, and which gave him his initial taste of life in the Middle East.

Having taken up a role as a manager for a commercial diving company in Abu Dhabi, Chris became well acquainted with life beneath the waves in the offshore oilfields of the Arabian Gulf. However, toward the end of the s, he decided the time was right for a career change, returning to his home country of the UK and obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree, with first-class honors, in physiology and biochemistry, a PhD in Cardiac Physiology supported by a Prize Studentship from the British Heart Foundation , and two postdocs from the University of Bristol and the University of Leeds.

This focus has two strands: the effect of diabetes on the generation and conduction of electrical signals; and the effect of the disease on cardiac muscle function. Over a million diabetes cases were reported in the UAE in , and cardiovascular disease represents the major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with the condition. The research that Chris and his lab have conducted in the field of diabetes has led to collaborations with a string of international universities, including the University of Bristol, the University of Central Lancashire, the University of Dublin, the University of Leeds, and the University of Manchester.

He also enjoys training in the gym and swimming. Since joining UAEU in January the assistant professor of artificial intelligence and robotics in the department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at United Arab Emirates University UAEU has published more than 50 research papers and worked on countless collaborative projects that push the boundaries of science and technology. His specialist areas, meanwhile, range from neural dynamics to motor learning and memory. The robotics enthusiast is currently working with the University of Michigan in the US and Nagoya University in Japan to build a prosthetic arm.

Additionally, he regularly visits the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan to further his research into post-stroke assessment tools and rehabilitation systems and is also partnering with the Faculty of Engineering and IT at the University of Technology in Sydney on the development of a self-rehabilitation tool for stroke patients.

Outside the classroom the UAE-born scientist, who spent a number of years living in Japan before returning to the Emirates, enjoys camping, swimming and aikido. Being married to a triathlon coach helps, of course. Having worked in four countries, all of which have had — and, in the case of the UAE, are having — an influence on the global and multicultural approach he brings to teaching. D in International Marketing at the University of Western Australia, before returning to his homeland to take up his first faculty position.

Along the way, he produced a series of academic papers that delved into the way consumers interact with global brands, and the role that online brand communities play in engaging the public. Now the third phase of the plan he began working on less than two years ago is in operation. And it was this that led him to UAEU. Projects in the lab that Dr Berengueres leads are focused on four areas — art and tech, creativity research, data science research, and robotics research — and activities range from crunching numbers to encouraging recycling to building a camel-sized robot that react to students according to its mood.

The graphic cards developed for 3D gaming have made things like the Tesla autopilot self-driving car possible. All of this shows how, at the IT College, we love to combine art and technology. This approach is also having a big, visible impact on UAEU life. A specific research group has also been formed to tackle the task of making large amounts of data make sense. Another burgeoning global field — robotics — is also a core element of life in the lab, through its research into human-robot interaction. As part of a joint collaboration with Sendai University, we are now building something that has never been built before: a robot with a superhuman sense of touch.

Imagine a robot that can tell if you have fever or malaria just by shaking your hand, for example. Robots can be scary sometimes, but the goal of robotics is to make life better for humans. Outside the lab and into the community, Dr Berengueres is a sharer of knowledge, insight, and experience. For me, this is a particularly rewarding way of giving back. She gained a Ph.

He completed a Ph. D in Management Program. Dr Khan has a keen interest in analyzing employee behavior issues in an organizational context. He is specifically interested in understanding why high performers are abused and in psychological intervention that can reduce non-supportive leadership behavior. Other areas of interest are the role of emotions in the workplace and workplace justice. His recent work on the abuse of high performers appeared in the Journal of Management, the number one peer-reviewed journal in the field of Management Studies.

Khan has published nine research papers and worked on many joint projects with colleagues from around the world. One of his papers won the award for best paper award at Academy of Management Annual Meeting. He first presented a paper there in He has also been invited to a variety of international forums as a keynote or plenary speaker.

Khan also supervises DBA students. He is currently supervising 6 DBA students who are researching topics as diverse as the socialization of new employees, organizational learning, knowledge sharing, issues of organizational justice during mergers, work engagement and creativity. Two of his students have successfully defended their theses in the last two years. Khan and his North American colleagues recently in partnership with EMAAR designed and tested psychological interventions that sought to reduce non-supportive managerial behavior.

This study is nearly finished and promises actionable for both EMAAR and the wider academic community. Outside of the classroom, Dr. Khan enjoys travelling, reading and taking part in professional conferences and other forums. He was born in Kumasi, Ghana.

Show that, for any graph G, there is an ordering of the vertices of G for which the Chromatic Number of a graph: The minimal number of non-degenerate set of colors by which all nodes of a 'undirected' graph is colorable, such that no two adjascent nodes share the same color.

Circuits for the graph on the right have either 4 or 6 vertices. Let G be a graph and e an edge of G. Note that different vertices can have different lists. The labels are called colors; the verti-ces of one color form a color class. For example, consider the above graph. Zhu, Density of the circular chromatic number of series-parallel graphs. The problem to find An edge coloring of a graph is an assignment of colors to d ' edges so that edges incident with a common vertex are as- signed different colors. Compute its chromatic number and polynomial.

Main results In the main section, we determine the exact value of b-chromatic number of prism graph and its central, middle and total graph. The classical Hadwiger-Nelson problem asks for the chromatic number of the plane, or more precisely the chromatic number of the unit distance graph of the Definition of chromatic number, possibly with links to more information and implementations.

A graph is an abstract notation used to represent the connection between pairs of objects. For example, the following can be colored minimum 3 colors. Let Gand G0be isomorphic graphs. Comparing to the simple formula of the chromatic number for Mycielski graphs, the circular chromatic number for Mycielski graphs seems more complicated. For example, let's look at a complete graph on 3 points which looks like a Graph coloring problem is to assign colors to certain elements of a graph subject to certain constraints.

Therefore we see that a graph containing a complete graph of r vertices is at least r-chromatic. Odd cycles and complete graphs are examples for which the chromatic number meets determine quickly the chromatic number of a graph. Dominator chromatic number of some graphs. Here, a subdivision of a graph results from inserting vertices into Abstract.

To ground the induction, consider the graph with one vertex and no edges. The complete graph Kn had n vertices and an edge between any two distinct vertices. In the pages that follow, you will use graphs to model real world situations.

### Submission history

Introducing graph theory with a coloring theme, Chromatic Graph Theory explores connections between major topics in graph theory and graph colorings as well as emerging topics. Hardness: A Hard problem to solve. A fuzzy graph G is F-strong colorable if there exists a strong coloring of G from a set of k colors. Theorem 4. The chromatic number of a graph G is the minimum k for which a k-coloring exists. They introduced him to graph theory, and he comes back to it now and then.

What is the chromatic number of the Petersen graph? What is its edge-chromatic number? The two graphs below have Chromatic Number 2 because of the Theorem above. The bound in part i is simple. Book graph. Algorithms and graph theory: The major role of graph theory in computer applications is the development of graph algorithms. The problem of bounding the list chromatic number, using the structural properties of the graph, becomes an exciting research topic in the Combinatorics: The Fine Art of Counting. We establish the basic properties of this invariant, provide bounds in terms of the chromatic number of the underlying unsigned graph, investigate the chromatic number of signed planar graphs, and prove an extension of the celebrated Brooks theorem to signed graphs.

For example, this graph has chromatic number three. One of the most important invariants of a graphG is its chromatic number. However, if we consider graphs with large chromatic number and small clique number then we can ask what other subgraphs must occur. The chromatic index is the minimal number of colors needed to properly color the edges of the graph. Pushpalatha b, S. The Definition of chromatic number, possibly with links to more information and implementations. In brief, graph theory has its unique impact in various fields and is growing large now a days. Lemma 5.

The subsequent section analyses the applications of graph theory especially in computer science. Now we consider In this paper, bounds of fuzzy dominator chromatic number of fuzzy bipartite graph, fuzzy dominator chromatic number of middle and subdivision fuzzy graph of fuzzy cycle, fuzzy path and fuzzy star are found. The affirmative answers by Tony Huynh and Gjergji Zaimi are correct, but it may be worth noting that both depend on the axiom of choice.

A colouring is proper if adjacent vertices have different colours. Graph::chromaticNumber G returns the chromatic number of the graph G. In 3, D we discuss the G 0-dichotomy of [KST], which gives the exact ob-struction for an analytic graph to have countable Borel chromatic number. The problem of bounding the list chromatic number, using the structural properties of the graph, becomes an exciting research topic in the number of people 2. The circuit for the graph on the left has 4 vertices. In this paper we analyze the asymptotic behavior of this parameter for a random graph Gn,p.

This graph is colored using the colors R;G;B;Y. The degree of a vertex v, denoted by d v , is the number of edges of Gwhich have vas a vertex. The problem of chromatic thresholds of graphs has been well studied, but there have been no previous results about the chromatic thresholds of r-uniform hypergraphs for r 3.

In the present paper we consider random graphs of bounded average degree, i. On the acyclic chromatic number of Hamming graphs 3 To obtain upper bounds on the acyclic chromatic number of a Hamming graph, we turn to distance 2 colorings. Determining the chromatic number of a graph is known to be NP-hard cf.

Chromatic number of a graph must be greater than or equal to its clique number. In this paper, we unify and substantially extend results from a number of previous papers, showing that, for every positive Beginning with the origin of the four color problem in , the field of graph colorings has developed into one of the most popular areas of graph theory. One possibility is to add all Graph coloring problem is to assign colors to certain elements of a graph subject to certain constraints.

This can be proved by going through the list of order types of The bounds on the sum and product of chromatic numbers of a graph and its complement are known as Nordhaus-Gaddum inequal-ities. The graph will have 81 vertices with each grid. Prove that isomorphic graphs have the same chromatic number and the same chromatic poly-nomial.

In , Welyyanti et al. K 5 C C 4 5 C 6 K 4 1 , is a graph corresponding to the skeleton of -prism. C HEN, R. Irving, David F. On the other hand, Finbow and Rall [4] proved that the packing chromatic number of the in nite cubic lattice Z3 is unbounded. Also fuzzy bipartite graphs are classified as three types according to the fuzzy dominator chromatic number. Example The two graphs below have Chromatic Number 2 because of the Theorem above. Recommend Documents. Jothilakshmia, A. We will now prove a theorem of Wilf.

The result is an upper bound on the chromatic number. Chromatic Number: The smallest number of colors needed to color a graph G is called its chromatic number. These are also the only graphs with chromatic number 1; any graph with an edge needs at least two colors to properly color it, as both endpoints of that edge cannot be the same color. Equality holds for a complete graph plus isolated vertices. The chromatic number g G of G is the smallest integer k such that there is a k-coloring of G. Specially for tree, in , Asmiati et al.

It follows that each neighborhood of a vertex of Hspans less than d2 2 number? Of course, one way for a graph to have large chromatic number is if it contains a large complete subgraph. The maximum degree of a graph is denoted by G and the minimum degree of a graph is denoted by G. The locating-chromatic number was introduced by Chartrand et al.

This number is called the chromatic number and the graph is called a properly colored graph. Chromatic number The chromatic number of a graph is the least number of colors needed for a coloring of this graph. Index Terms— Key Words: b-colouring,b-chromatic number, chromatic number,Line graph,proper coloring,wheel graph. The packing chromatic number Formula presented. The strong chromatic index of a graph G, denoted sq G , is the minimum number of parts needed to partition the edges of G into induced matchings. Theorem Thomasen, The list chromatic number of a planar graph is at most 5. It is also a generalization of the four-color theorem and is considered one of the most challenging open problems in the field.
