Given a graph G, an automorphic edge(vertex)-coloring of G is a proper edge(vertex)-coloring such that each automorphism of the graph preserves the coloring. The automorphic chromatic index (number) is the least integer k for which G admits an automorphic edge(vertex)-coloring with k colors. We show that it is NP-complete to determine the automorphic chromatic index and the automorphic chromatic number of an arbitrary graph.

Abstract

Given a graph G, an automorphic edge(vertex)-coloring of G is a proper edge(vertex)-coloring such that each automorphism of the graph preserves the coloring. The automorphic chromatic index (number) is the least integer k for which G admits an automorphic edge(vertex)-coloring with k colors. We show that it is NP-complete to determine the automorphic chromatic index and the automorphic chromatic number of an arbitrary graph.
