Flower snarks and Goldberg snarks are two infinite families of cyclically 5-edge-connected cubic graphs with girth at least five and chromatic index four. For any odd integer k, k>3, there is a Flower snark, say J_k, of order 4k and a Goldberg snark, say B_k, of order 8k. We determine the automorphic groups of J_k and B_k for every k and prove that they are isomorphic to the dihedral group D_4k of order 4k.

Abstract

Flower snarks and Goldberg snarks are two infinite families of cyclically 5-edge-connected cubic graphs with girth at least five and chromatic index four. For any odd integer k, k>3, there is a Flower snark, say J_k, of order 4k and a Goldberg snark, say B_k, of order 8k. We determine the automorphic groups of J_k and B_k for every k and prove that they are isomorphic to the dihedral group D_4k of order 4k.
