||The Contraction Principle for Multivalued Mappings on a Modular Metric Space with a Graph|
We study the existence of fixed points for contraction multivalued
mappings in modular metric spaces endowed with a graph. The
notion of a modular metric on an arbitrary set and the corresponding
modular spaces, generalizing classical modulars over linear spaces
like Orlicz spaces, were recently introduced. This paper can
be seen as a generalization of Nadler's and Edelstein's fixed
point theorems to modular metric spaces endowed with a graph.
Keywords:fixed point theory, modular metric spaces, multivalued contraction mapping, connected digraph.

||Size, Order, and Connected Domination|
We give a sharp upper bound on the size of a
triangle-free graph of a given order and connected domination. Our
bound, apart from
strengthening an old classical theorem of Mantel and of
TurÃ¡n , improves on a theorem of Sanchis.
Further, as corollaries, we settle a long standing
conjecture of Graffiti on the leaf number and local independence for
triangle-free graphs and answer a question of Griggs, Kleitman and
Shastri on a lower bound of the leaf number in
Keywords:size, connected domination, local independence number, leaf number

||On Countable Dense and $n$-homogeneity|
We prove that a connected, countable dense homogeneous space is
$n$-homogeneous for every $n$, and strongly 2-homogeneous provided it
is locally connected. We also present an example of a connected and
countable dense homogeneous space which is not strongly
2-homogeneous. This answers Problem 136 of Watson in the Open Problems
in Topology Book in the negative.
Keywords:countable dense homogeneous, connected, $n$-homogeneous, strongly $n$-homogeneous, counterexample

||Homogeneous Suslinian Continua|
A continuum is said to be Suslinian if it does not
contain uncountably many
mutually exclusive non-degenerate subcontinua. Fitzpatrick and
Lelek have shown that a metric Suslinian continuum $X$ has the
property that the set of points at which $X$ is connected im
kleinen is dense in $X$. We extend their result to Hausdorff Suslinian continua
and obtain a number of corollaries. In particular, we prove that a homogeneous,
non-degenerate, Suslinian continuum is a simple closed curve and that each separable,
non-degenerate, homogenous, Suslinian continuum is metrizable.
Keywords:connected im kleinen, homogeneity, Suslinian, locally connected continuum

||Hamiltonian Properties of Generalized Halin Graphs |
A Halin graph is a graph $H=T\cup C$, where $T$ is a tree with no
vertex of degree two, and $C$ is a cycle connecting the end-vertices
of $T$ in the cyclic order determined by a plane embedding of $T$.
In this paper, we define classes of generalized Halin graphs, called
$k$-Halin graphs, and investigate their Hamiltonian properties.

||On Suslinian Continua |
A continuum is said to be Suslinian if it does not contain uncountably
many mutually exclusive nondegenerate subcontinua. We prove that
Suslinian continua are perfectly normal and rim-metrizable. Locally
connected Suslinian continua have weight at most $\omega_1$ and under
appropriate set-theoretic conditions are metrizable. Non-separable
locally connected Suslinian continua are rim-finite on some open set.
Keywords:Suslinian continuum, Souslin line, locally connected, rim-metrizable,, perfectly normal, rim-finite
