On the J-Tightness of Graphs

Document Type : Research Paper



We introduce a new invariant vulnerability parameter named “J-Tightness” or “J(G)” for graphs. As a stability measure, its properties along with comparisons to other parameters of a graph are proposed. We show how it is calculated for complete graphs and cycles. We show that J-Tightness better fits the properties of vulnerability measures and can be used with more confidence to assess the vulnerability of any classes of graphs.
