# Some defective parameters in graph theory

## John Gimbel

## University of Alaska Fairbanks

## Abstract

Many of the most studied topics in graph theory can be defined in terms of independent sets. The notion is extended in the following way: for a given integer k, let us say a set of vertices is k-sparse if it induces a graph with maximum degree at most k. So, for example, we can expand the notion of coloring. The k-defective chromatic number is the fewest number of colors we need to color vertices so that each color class is k-sparse. Likewise, we can extend the notion of ramsey numbers, looking for large k-sparse sets in a graph or its compliment. We will discuss these and some related topics.
