zero-divisor graphs of commutative rings $R$ with $1$, such that
$R$ is finite or $|Nil(R)|\neq2$.

2-dimensional Convexity Numbers and $P_4$-free Graphs For $S\subseteq\mathbb R^n$ a set
$C\subseteq S$ is an $m$-clique if the convex hull of no $m$-element subset of
$C$ is contained in $S$.
We show that there is essentially just one way to construct
a closed set $S\subseteq\mathbb R^2$ without an uncountable
$3$-clique that is not the union of countably many convex sets.
In particular, all such sets have the same convexity number;
that is, they
require the same number of convex subsets to cover them.
The main result follows from an analysis of the convex structure of closed
sets in $\mathbb R^2$ without uncountable 3-cliques in terms of
clopen, $P_4$-free graphs on Polish spaces.

A Note on Conjectures of F. Galvin and R. Rado In 1968, Galvin conjectured that an uncountable poset $P$ is the
union of countably many chains if and only if this is true for every
subposet $Q \subseteq P$ with size $\aleph_1$. In 1981, Rado
formulated a similar conjecture that an uncountable interval graph $G$ is countably
chromatic if and only if this is true for every induced subgraph $H
\subseteq G$ with size $\aleph_1$. TodorÄeviÄ has shown
that Rado's Conjecture is consistent relative to the existence of a
supercompact cardinal, while the consistency of Galvin's Conjecture
remains open. In this paper, we survey and collect a variety of
results related to these two conjectures. We also show that the
extension of Rado's conjecture to the class of all chordal graphs is
relatively consistent with the existence of a supercompact cardinal.

Embedding Distributions of Generalized Fan Graphs Total embedding distributions have been known for a few classes of graphs.
Chen, Gross, and Rieper
computed it for necklaces, close-end ladders and cobblestone
paths. Kwak and Shim computed it for bouquets of circles and
dipoles. In this paper, a splitting theorem is generalized
and the embedding distributions of
generalized fan graphs are obtained.

On Domination in Zero-Divisor Graphs We first determine the domination number for the zero-divisor
graph of the product of two commutative rings with $1$. We then
calculate the domination number for the zero-divisor graph of any
commutative artinian ring. Finally, we extend some of the results
to non-commutative rings in which an element is a left
zero-divisor if and only if it is a right zero-divisor.

A New Sufficient Condition for a Graph To Be $(g,f,n)$-Critical Let $G$ be a graph of order $p$, let $a$,
$b$, and $n$ be nonnegative integers with $1\leq a\lt b$, and let $g$
and $f$ be two integer-valued functions defined on $V(G)$ such
that $a\leq g(x)\lt f(x)\leq b$ for all $x\in V(G)$. A $(g,f)$-factor
of graph $G$ is a spanning subgraph $F$ of $G$ such
that $g(x)\leq d_F(x)\leq f(x)$ for each $x\in V(F)$. Then a graph
$G$ is called $(g,f,n)$-critical if after deleting any $n$
vertices of $G$ the remaining graph of $G$ has a $(g,f)$-factor.
The binding number $\operatorname{bind}(G)$ of $G$ is the minimum value of
${|N_G(X)|}/{|X|}$ taken over all non-empty subsets $X$ of
$V(G)$ such that $N_G(X)\neq V(G)$. In this paper, it is proved
that $G$ is a $(g,f,n)$-critical graph if
\[
\operatorname{bind}(G)\gt \frac{(a+b-1)(p-1)}{(a+1)p-(a+b)-bn+2}
\quad\text{and}\quad p\geq
\frac{(a+b-1)(a+b-2)}{a+1}+\frac{bn}{a}.
\]
Furthermore, it is
shown that this
result is best possible in some sense.

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.

Essential Surfaces in Graph Link Exteriors An irreducible graph manifold $M$ contains an essential torus if
it is not a special Seifert manifold.
Whether $M$ contains a closed essential surface of
negative Euler characteristic or not
depends on the difference of Seifert fibrations from the two sides
of a torus system which splits $M$ into Seifert manifolds.
However,
it is not easy to characterize geometrically the class of
irreducible graph manifolds which contain such surfaces.
This article studies this problem in the case of graph link exteriors.

On the Simple $\Z_2$-homotopy Types of Graph Complexes and Their Simple $\Z_2$-universality We prove that the neighborhood complex $\N(G)$,
the box complex $\B(G)$, the homomorphism complex
$\Hom(K_2,G)$and the Lov\'{a}sz complex $\L(G)$ have the
same simple $\Z_2$-homotopy type in the sense of
Whitehead. We show that these graph complexes
are simple $\Z_2$-universal.

Asymptotic Existence of Resolvable Graph Designs Let $v \ge k \ge 1$ and $\lam \ge 0$ be integers. A \emph{block
design} $\BD(v,k,\lambda)$ is a collection $\cA$ of $k$-subsets of a
$v$-set $X$ in which every unordered pair of elements from $X$ is
contained in exactly $\lambda$ elements of $\cA$. More generally, for a
fixed simple graph $G$, a \emph{graph design} $\GD(v,G,\lambda)$ is a
collection $\cA$ of graphs isomorphic to $G$ with vertices in $X$ such
that every unordered pair of elements from $X$ is an edge of exactly
$\lambda$ elements of $\cA$. A famous result of Wilson says that for a
fixed $G$ and $\lambda$, there exists a $\GD(v,G,\lambda)$ for all
sufficiently large $v$ satisfying certain necessary conditions. A
block (graph) design as above is \emph{resolvable} if $\cA$ can be
partitioned into partitions of (graphs whose vertex sets partition)
$X$. Lu has shown asymptotic existence in $v$ of resolvable
$\BD(v,k,\lambda)$, yet for over twenty years the analogous problem for
resolvable $\GD(v,G,\lambda)$ has remained open. In this paper, we settle
asymptotic existence of resolvable graph designs.

A Characterization of $ PSU_{11}(q)$ Order components of a finite simple group were introduced in [4].
It was proved that some non-abelian simple groups are uniquely determined
by their order components. As the main result of this paper, we
show that groups $PSU_{11}(q)$ are also uniquely determined by
their order components. As corollaries of this result, the
validity of a conjecture of J. G. Thompson and a conjecture of W.
Shi and J. Bi both on $PSU_{11}(q)$ are obtained.

On Certain Finitely Generated Subgroups of Groups Which Split Define a group $G$ to be in the class $\mathcal{S}$ if for any
finitely generated subgroup $K$ of $G$ having the property that
there is a positive integer $n$ such that $g^n \in K$ for all
$g\in G$, $K$ has finite index in $G$. We show that a free
product with amalgamation $A*_C B$ and an $\HNN$ group $A *_C$ belong
to $\mathcal{S}$, if $C$ is in $\mathcal{S}$ and every subgroup of
$C$ is finitely generated.

Characterizing continua by disconnection properties We study Hausdorff continua in which every set of certain
cardinality contains a subset which disconnects the space. We show
that such continua are rim-finite. We give characterizations of
this class among metric continua. As an application of our
methods, we show that continua in which each countably infinite set
disconnects are generalized graphs. This extends a result of
Nadler for metric continua.
