A note on M2-edge colorings of graphs

Abstract. An edge coloring \(\varphi\) of a graph \(G\) is called an \(M_2\)-edge coloring if \(|\varphi(v)|\le2 \) for every vertex \(v\) of \(G\), where \(\varphi(v)\) is the set of colors of edges incident with \(v\). Let \(K_2(G)\) denote the maximum number of colors used in an \(M_2\)-edge coloring of \(G\). Let \(G_1\), \(G_2\) and \(G_3\) be graphs such that \(G_1\subseteq G_2\subseteq G_3\). In this paper we deal with the following question: Assuming that \(K_2(G_1)=K_2(G_3)\), does it hold \(K_2(G_1)=K_2(G_2)=K_2(G_3)\)?
Keywords: edge coloring, graph.
