The Weakly Nilpotent Graph of a Commutative Ring
Let $R$ be a commutative ring with nonzero identity. In this
paper, we introduced the weakly nilpotent graph of a commutative
ring. The weakly nilpotent graph of $R$ is denoted by $\Gamma_w(R)$
is a graph with the vertex set $R^{*}$ and two vertices $x$ and
$y$ are adjacent if and only if $xy\in N(R)^{*}$, where $R^{*}=R\setminus\{0\}$
and $N(R)^{*}$ is the set of all nonzero nilpotent elements
of $R$. In this article, we determine the diameter of weakly
nilpotent graph of an Artinian ring. We prove that if $\Gamma_w(R)$
is a forest, then $\Gamma_w(R)$ is a union of a star and some
isolated vertices. We study the clique number, the chromatic
number and the independence number of $\Gamma_w(R)$. Among other
results, we show that for an Artinian ring $R$, $\Gamma_w(R)$
is not a disjoint union of cycles or a unicyclic graph. For Artinan
ring, we determine $\operatorname{diam}(\overline{\Gamma_w(R)})$. Finally, we
characterize all commutative rings $R$ for which $\overline{\Gamma_w(R)}$
is a cycle, where $\overline{\Gamma_w(R)}$ is the complement
of the weakly nilpotent graph of $R$.

On the Comaximal Graph of a Commutative Ring
Let $R$ be a commutative ring with $1$. In [P. K. Sharma, S. M.
Bhatwadekar, A note on graphical representation of rings, J.
Algebra 176(1995) 124127], Sharma and Bhatwadekar defined a
graph on $R$, $\Gamma(R)$, with vertices as elements of $R$, where
two distinct vertices $a$ and $b$ are adjacent if and only if $Ra
+ Rb = R$. In this paper, we consider a subgraph $\Gamma_2(R)$ of
$\Gamma(R)$ which consists of nonunit elements. We investigate
the behavior of $\Gamma_2(R)$ and $\Gamma_2(R) \setminus \operatorname{J}(R)$,
where $\operatorname{J}(R)$ is the Jacobson radical of $R$. We associate the
ring properties of $R$, the graph properties of $\Gamma_2(R)$ and
the topological properties of $\operatorname{Max}(R)$. Diameter, girth, cycles
and dominating sets are investigated and the algebraic and the
topological characterizations are given for graphical properties
of these graphs.
