A Study on Total Coloring and Finding the Total Chromatic Number of Cycle, Butterfly and Web Graph

Authors(2) :-R. Nivetha, H. Haseena Begum

In graph theory total colouring and total chromatic number plays a major role. In this paper, we study the concepts of total colouring and total chromatic number. Hence we obtain the total chromatic number of Cycle graph, Butterfly graph and Web graph using an algorithm.
