Abstract

A (2,1)-total labeling of a graph G is an assignment f from the vertex set V(G) and the edge set E(G) to the set {0,1,...,k} of nonnegative integers such that |f(x) - f(y)| ≥ 2 if x is a vertex and y is an edge incident to x, and |f(x) - f(y)| ≥ 1 if x and y are a pair of adjacent vertices or a pair of adjacent edges, for all x and y in V(G) ∪ E(G). The (2,1)-total labeling number λ2 T(G) of G is defined as the minimum k among all possible assignments. In [D. Chen and W. Wang. (2,1)-Total labelling of outerplanar graphs. Discr. Appl. Math. 155 (2007)], it was conjectured that all outerplanar graphs G satisfy λ2 T(G) < Δ(G) + 2, where Δ(G) is the maximum degree of G, while they also showed that it is true for G with Δ(G) ≥ 5. In this paper, we solve their conjecture completely, by proving that λ2 T(G) ≤ Δ(G) + 2 even in the case of Δ(G) ≤ 4.
