Let G(V,E) be A function f is called the even harmonious labeling of a graph with p vertices and q edges. A graph G(p,q) is said to be a graph G(V, E) if f : V → {0, 1, 2, ……., 2q} is injective and even harmonious if there exists an injection f : V → { 0,1,…,2q} the induced function f * : E → {0, 2,…,2(q– 1)} is defined as such that the induced mapping f*(uv) = (f(u)+f(v)) (mod 2q) is a bijection from E onto { 0,2,4,…,2(q-1)}. f*(uv) = (f(u) + f(v)) (mod 2q ) is bijective, the resulting edge labels should be distinct.

If a graph G (p,q) is even harmonious graph I.INTRODUCTION then 2q and 0 are the maximal label and the minimal label of vertices respectively . Throughout this paper, by a graph we mean a finite, undirected, simple graph. For notations and terminology we Theorem 1.2. In even harmonious labeling two follow Bondy and Murthy [ 1 ]. Graph labeling where the consecutive integers cannot be the labels of any two vertices vertices are assigned values subject to certain conditions have in G. been motivated by practical problems. Labeled graphs serves as models in a wide range of applications such as Coding II. MAIN RESULTS theory, the x-ray crystallography , to design a communication network addressing system etc. Theorem 2.1. A path Pn (n ≥ 2 ) is even harmonious. We denoted the path on n vertices by Pn, the cycle on Proof. n vertices by Cn, the complete bipartite graph by Km,n and the star graph by K1,n. In [ 3 ] Graham and Sloane have introduced Case (i): The number of vertices is even. the harmonious labeling of a graph. Zhi – He Liang, Zhan – Let m = 2n LiBai [ 4 ] have introduced the odd harmonious labeling of a graph. For a detailed survey on graph labeling we refer to Let Pm be the path with vertices vi, 1 ≤ i ≤ m Gallian [2 ]. We refer [ 5] also. Define f(vi) = 2( i – 1 ), 1 ≤ i ≤ m . Let G(V,E) be a graph with p vertices and q edges. Then f is an even harmonious labeling of Pm. A graph G with q edges is harmonious if there is an injection ‘f’ from the vertices of G to the group of integers Case (ii): The number of vertices is odd. modulo q such that when each edge xy is assigned the label Let m = 2n + 1 (f(x) + f(y)) (mod q), the resulting edge labels should be distinct. Let Pm be the path with vertices vi, 1 ≤ i ≤ m Define f(v2i - 1) = 2( i – 1 ), i = 1,2,…, m/2. A graph G(p,q) is said to be odd harmonious if there exists an injection f : V → {0, 1, 2, …., 2q – 1 } such that f(v2i) = m+ ( 2i – 1 ), i = 1,2,…, m/2 induced mapping f*(uv) = (f(u) + f(v)) is bijection from E on Then f is an even harmonious labeling of Pm. to {1, 3, 5, …., 2q - 1}. Then f is said to become an odd harmonious labeling of G. Theorem 2.2. The complete bipartite graph Km,n is even harmonious. The floor function assigns to the real number x the largest integer that is less than or equal x. The value of the Proof. Let the vertices sets U and V be the bipartition of Km,n, floor function at x is denoted by x . where U = { uj, 1 ≤ j ≤ m} and V = { vi, 1 ≤ i ≤ n}. The ceiling function assigns to the real number x the Define f(uj) = 2( j – 1 ), 1 ≤ j ≤ m and smallest integer that is greater than or equal x. The value of f(vi) = 2mi, 1 ≤ i ≤ n. the ceiling function at x is denoted by x . Then f is an even harmonious labeling of Km,n. 161 http://sites.google.com/site/ijcsis/ ISSN 1947-5500 (IJCSIS) International Journal of Computer Science and Information Security, Vol. 9, No. 7, July 2011 Corollary 2.3.
