Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

P^3_n is the cube of path graph P_n.

Given a graph G where each vertex is initially considered filled or unfilled, we apply the skew color change rule, which states that a vertex v becomes filled if and only if it is the unique empty neighbor of some other vertex in the graph. The failed skew zero forcing number of G, is the maximum cardinality of any subset S of vertices on which repeated application of the skew color change rule will not result in all vertices being filled.
