Özet

A vertex cut of a connected graph G is a set of vertices whose deletion disconnects G. A connected graph G is super-connected if the deletion of every minimum vertex cut of G isolates a vertex. The super-connectivity is the size of the smallest vertex cut of G such that each resultant component does not have an isolated vertex. The Kneser graph KG(n, k) is the graph whose vertices are the k-subsets of {1, 2, ..., n} and two vertices are adjacent if the k-subsets are disjoint. We use Baranyai's Theorem on the decompositions of complete hypergraphs to show that the Kneser graph KG(n, 2) are super-connected when n >= 5 and that their super-connectivity is (n 2) - 6 when n >= 6.
