On the Largest Dynamic Monopolies of Graphs with a Given Average Threshold
Let $G$ be a graph and $\tau$ be an assignment of nonnegative
integer thresholds to the vertices of $G$. A subset of vertices,
$D$ is said to be a $\tau$dynamic monopoly, if $V(G)$ can be
partitioned into subsets $D_0, D_1, \ldots, D_k$ such that $D_0=D$
and for any $i\in \{0, \ldots, k1\}$, each vertex $v$ in $D_{i+1}$
has at least $\tau(v)$ neighbors in $D_0\cup \ldots \cup D_i$.
Denote the size of smallest $\tau$dynamic monopoly by $dyn_{\tau}(G)$
and the average of thresholds in $\tau$ by $\overline{\tau}$.
We show that the values of $dyn_{\tau}(G)$ over all assignments
$\tau$ with the same average threshold is a continuous set of
integers. For any positive number $t$, denote the maximum $dyn_{\tau}(G)$
taken over all threshold assignments $\tau$ with $\overline{\tau}\leq
t$, by $Ldyn_t(G)$. In fact, $Ldyn_t(G)$ shows the worstcase
value of a dynamic monopoly when the average threshold is a given
number $t$. We investigate under what conditions on $t$, there
exists an upper bound for $Ldyn_{t}(G)$ of the form $cG$, where
$c\lt 1$. Next, we show that $Ldyn_t(G)$ is coNPhard for planar
graphs but has polynomialtime solution for forests.

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, closeend 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.

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 rimfinite. 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.
