1. On 2-fold covers of graphsYan-Quan Feng, Klavdija Kutnar, Aleksander Malnič, Dragan Marušič, 2008, original scientific article Abstract: A regular covering projection ▫$\wp : \widetilde{X} \to X$▫ of connected graphs is ▫$G$▫-admissible if ▫$G$▫ lifts along ▫$\wp$▫. Denote by ▫$\tilde{G}$▫ the lifted group, and let CT▫$(\wp)$▫ be the group of covering transformations. The projection is called ▫$G$▫-split whenever the extension ▫{$\mathrm{CT}}(\wp) \to \tilde{G} \to G$▫ splits. In this paper, split 2-covers are considered, with a particular emphasis given to cubic symmetric graphs. Supposing that ▫$G$▫ is transitive on ▫$X$▫, a ▫$G$▫-split cover is said to be ▫$G$▫-split-transitive if all complements ▫$\tilde{G} \cong G$▫ of CT▫$(\wp)$▫ within ▫$\tilde{G}$▫ are transitive on ▫$\widetilde{X}$▫; it is said to be ▫$G$▫-split-sectional whenever for each complement ▫$\tilde{G}$▫ there exists a ▫$\tilde{G}$▫-invariant section of ▫$\wp$▫; and it is called ▫$G$▫-split-mixed otherwise. It is shown, when ▫$G$▫ is an arc-transitive group, split-sectional and split-mixed 2-covers lead to canonical double covers. Split-transitive covers, however, are considerably more difficult to analyze. For cubic symmetric graphs split 2-cover are necessarily canonical double covers (that is, no ▫$G$▫-split-transitive 2-covers exist) when ▫$G$▫ is 1-regular or 4-regular. In all other cases, that is, if ▫$G$▫ is ▫$s$▫-regular, ▫$s=2,3$▫ or ▫$5$▫, a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a transitive complement ▫$\tilde{G}$▫ is given, and moreover, an infinite family of split-transitive 2-covers based on the alternating groups of the form ▫$A_{12k+10}$▫ is constructed. Finally, chains of consecutive 2-covers, along which an arc-transitive group ▫$G$▫ has successive lifts, are also considered. It is proved that in such a chain, at most two projections can be split. Further, it is shown that, in the context of cubic symmetric graphs, if exactly two of them are split, then one is split-transitive and the other one is either split-sectional or split-mixed.

4. Semisymmetric elementary abelian covers of the Möbius-Kantor graphAleksander Malnič, Štefko Miklavič, Primož Potočnik, Dragan Marušič, 2007, original scientific article Abstract: Let ▫$\wp_N : \tilde{X} \to X$▫ be a regular covering projection of connected graphs with the group of covering transformations isomorphic to ▫$N$▫. If ▫$N$▫ is an elementary abelian ▫$p$▫-group, then the projection ▫$\wp_N$▫ is called ▫$p$▫-elementary abelian. The projection ▫$\wp_N$▫ is vertex-transitive (edge-transitive) if some vertex-transitive (edge-transitive) subgroup of Aut ▫$X$▫ lifts along ▫$\wp_N$▫, and semisymmetric if it is edge- but not vertex-transitive. The projection ▫$\wp_N$▫ is minimal semisymmetric if ▫$\wp_N$▫ cannot be written as a composition ▫$\wp_N = \wp \circ \wp_M$▫ of two (nontrivial) regular covering projections, where ▫$\pw_M$▫ is semisymmetric. Finding elementary abelian covering projections can be grasped combinatorially via a linear representation of automorphisms acting on the first homology group of the graph. The method essentially reduces to finding invariant subspaces of matrix groups over prime fields (see [A. Malnic, D. Marušic, P. Potocnik, Elementary abelian covers of graphs, J. Algebraic Combin. 20 (2004) 71-97]). In this paper, all pairwise nonisomorphic minimal semisymmetric elementary abelian regular covering projections of the Möbius-Kantor graph, the Generalized Petersen graph GP(8,3), are constructed. No such covers exist for ▫$p=2$▫. Otherwise, the number of such covering projections is equal to ▫$(p-1)/4$▫ and ▫$1+(p-1)/4$▫ in cases ▫$p \equiv 5,9,13,17,21 \pmod{24}$▫ and ▫$p \equiv 1 \pmod{24}$▫, respectively, and to ▫$(p+1)/4$▫ and ▫$1+(p+1)/4$▫ in cases ▫$p \equiv 3,7,11,15,23 \pmod{24}$▫ and ▫$p \equiv 19 \pmod{24}$▫, respectively. For each such covering projection the voltage rules generating the corresponding covers are displayed explicitly.
