Generating functions and regular languages of walks with modular restrictions in graphs

University essay from Linköpings universitet/Matematik och tillämpad matematik

Abstract: This thesis examines the problem of counting and describing walks in graphs, and the problem when such walks have modular restrictions on how many timesit visits each vertex. For the special cases of the path graph, the cycle graph, the grid graph and the cylinder graph, generating functions and regular languages for their walks and walks with modular restrictions are constructed. At the end of the thesis, a theorem is proved that connects the generating function for walks in a graph to the generating function for walks in a covering graph.
