Abstract

An ordered circular permutation S of u's and v' s is called an ordered circular sequence of u' s and v' s. A kernel of a digraph G=(V,A) is an independent subset of V, say K, such that for any vertex v i in V\K there is an arc from v i to a vertex v j in K. G is said to be kernel-perfect (KP) if every induced subgraph of G has a kernel. G is said to be kernel-perfect-critical (KPC) if G has no kernel but every proper induced subgraph of G has a kernel. The digraph $$G = {\left( {V,A} \right)} = \ifmmode\expandafter\vec\else\expandafter\vecabove\fi{C}_{n} {\left( {j_{1} ,j_{2} , \cdots ,j_{k} } \right)}$$ is defined by: V(G)={0,1,...,n−1}, A(G)={uv | v−u≡j, (mod n) for 1 ≤i≤k}.
