2. The Terwilliger algebra of a distance-regular graph of negative typeŠtefko Miklavič, 2009, original scientific article Abstract: Let ▫$\Gamma$▫ denote a distance-regular graph with diameter ▫$D \ge 3$▫. Assume ▫$\Gamma$▫ has classical parameters ▫$(D,b,\alpha,\beta)▫$ with ▫$b < -1$▫. Let ▫$X$▫ denote the vertex set of ▫$\Gamma$▫ and let ▫$A \in {\mathrm{Mat}}_X(\mathbb{C})$▫ denote the adjacency matrix of ▫$\Gamma$▫. Fix ▫$x \in X$▫ and let $A^\ast \in {\mathrm{Mat}}_X(\mathbb{C})$ denote the corresponding dual adjacency matrix. Let ▫$T$▫ denote the subalgebra of ${\mathrm{Mat}}_X(\mathbb{C})$ generated by ▫$A,A^\ast$▫. We call ▫$T$▫ the Terwilliger algebra of ▫$\Gamma$▫ with respect to ▫$x$▫. We show that up to isomorphism there exist exactly two irreducible ▫$T$▫-modules with endpoint 1; their dimensions are ▫$D$▫ and ▫$2D-2$▫. For these ▫$T$▫-modules we display a basis consisting of eigenvectors for ▫$A^\ast$▫, and for each basis we give the action of ▫$A$▫.

6. Distance-balanced graphs: Symmetry conditionsKlavdija Kutnar, Aleksander Malnič, Dragan Marušič, Štefko Miklavič, 2006, original scientific article Abstract: A graph ▫$X$▫ is said to be distance-balanced if for any edge ▫$uv$▫ of ▫$X$▫, the number of vertices closer to ▫$u$▫ than to ▫$v$▫ is equal to the number of vertices closer to ▫$v$▫ than to ▫$u$▫. A graph ▫$X$▫ is said to be strongly distance-balanced if for any edge ▫$uv$▫ of ▫$X$▫ and any integer ▫$k$▫, the number of vertices at distance ▫$k$▫ from ▫$u$▫ and at distance ▫$k+1$▫ from ▫$v$▫ is equal to the number of vertices at distance ▫$k+1$▫ from ▫$u$▫ and at distance ▫$k$▫ from ▫$v$▫. Exploring the connection between symmetry properties of graphs and the metric property of being (strongly) distance-balanced is the main theme of this article. That a vertex-transitive graph is necessarily strongly distance-balanced and thus also distance-balanced is an easy observation. With only a slight relaxation of the transitivity condition, the situation changes drastically: there are infinite families of semisymmetric graphs (that is, graphs which are edge-transitive, but not vertex-transitive) which are distance-balanced, but there are also infinite families of semisymmetric graphs which are not distance-balanced. Results on the distance-balanced property in product graphs prove helpful in obtaining these constructions. Finally, a complete classification of strongly distance-balanced graphs is given for the following infinite families of generalized Petersen graphs: GP▫$(n,2)$▫, GP▫$(5k+1,k)$▫, GP▫$(3k 3,k)$▫, and GP▫$(2k+2,k)$▫.

8. Q-polynomial distance-regular graphs with a [sub] 1 [equal] 0 and a [sub] 2 [not equal] 0Štefko Miklavič, 2008, original scientific article Abstract: Let ▫$\Gamma$▫ denote a ▫$Q$▫-polynomial distance-regular graph with diameter ▫$D \ge 3$▫ and intersection numbers ▫$a_1=0$▫, ▫$a_2 \ne 0$▫. Let ▫$X$▫ denote the vertex set of ▫$\Gamma$▫ and let ▫$A \in {\mathrm{Mat}}_X ({\mathbb{C}})$▫ denote the adjacency matrix of ▫$\Gamma$▫. Fix ▫$x \in X$▫ and let denote $A^\ast \in {\mathrm{Mat}}_X ({\mathbb{C}})$ the corresponding dual adjacency matrix. Let ▫$T$▫ denote the subalgebra of ▫$A{\mathrm{Mat}}_X ({\mathbb{C}})$▫ generated by ▫$A$▫, ▫$A^\ast$▫. We call ▫$T$▫ the Terwilliger algebra of ▫$\Gamma$▫ with respect to ▫$x$▫. We show that up to isomorphism there exists a unique irreducible ▫$T$▫-module ▫$W$▫ with endpoint 1. We show that ▫$W$▫ has dimension ▫$2D-2$▫. We display a basis for ▫$W$▫ which consists of eigenvectors for ▫$A^\ast$▫. We display the action of ▫$A$▫ on this basis. We show that ▫$W$▫ appears in the standard module of ▫$\Gamma$▫ with multiplicity ▫$k-1$▫, where ▫$k$▫ is the valency of ▫$\Gamma$▫.
