Split Graphs: Combinatorial Species and Asymptotics

  • Justin M. Troyka


A split graph is a graph whose vertices can be partitioned into a clique and a stable set. We investigate the combinatorial species of split graphs, providing species-theoretic generalizations of enumerative results due to Bína and Přibil (2015), Cheng, Collins, and Trenk (2016), and Collins and Trenk (2018). In both the labeled and unlabeled cases, we give asymptotic results on the number of split graphs, of unbalanced split graphs, and of bicolored graphs, including proving the conjecture of Cheng, Collins, and Trenk (2016) that almost all split graphs are balanced.
