ABSTRACT
In this paper, we show that the number of edges for any odd harmonious Eulerian graph is congruent to 0
or 2 (mod 4), and we found a counter example for the inverse of this statement is not true. We also proved
that, the graphs which are constructed by two copies of even cycle Cn sharing a common edge are odd
harmonious. In addition, we obtained an odd harmonious labeling for the graphs which are constructed by
two copies of cycle Cn sharing a common vertex when n is congruent to 0 (mod 4). Moreover, we show
that, the Cartesian product of cycle graph Cm and path Pn for each n ≥ 2, m ≡ 0 (mod 4) are odd
harmonious graphs. Finally many new families of odd harmonious graphs are introduced.

INTRODUCTION
Graph labeling have often been motivated by practical problems is one of fascinating areas of
research. A systematic study of various applications of graph labeling is carried out in Bloom
and Golomb [1]. Labeled graph plays vital role to determine optimal circuit layouts for
computers and for the representation of compressed data structure. Many of the results about
graph labeling are collected and updated regularly in a survey by Gallian [2]. The reader can
We begin simple, finite, connected and undirected graph G = (V(G), E(G)) with p vertices and q
edges. For all other standard terminology and notations we follow Harary [3].
Most graph labeling methods trace their origion to one introduced by Rosa [4] called such a
labeling a β-valuation and Golomb [5] subsequently called graceful labeling, and one introduced
by Graham and Sloane [6] called harmonious labeling. Several infinite families of graceful and
harmonious graphs have been reported. Many illustrious works on graceful graphs brought a tide
to different ways of labeling the elements of graph such as odd graceful.
A graph G of size q is odd-graceful, if there is an injection f from V (G) to {0,1,2,…, 2q -1} such
that, when each edge xy is assigned the label or weight f(x) - f(y) , the resulting edge labels are
{1, 3, 5, . . . , 2q - 1}. This definition was introduced by Gnanajothi [7]. Many researchers have
studied odd graceful labeling. Seoud and Abdel-Aal [8], [9] they give a survey of all connected
graph of order ≤ 6 which are odd graceful, and they also introduce some families of odd graceful
graphs.

A graph G is said to be odd harmonious if there exists an injection f: V(G) → {0, 1, 2, …, 2q-1}
such that the induced function f* : E(G) →{1, 3, . . . , 2q − 1} defined by f*(uv) = f(u) + f(v) is a
bijection. Then f is said to be an odd harmonious labeling of G.
Liang and Bai [10] introduced concept of odd harmonious labeling and they have obtained the
necessary conditions for the existence of odd harmonious labeling of a graph. They proved that
if G is an odd harmonious graph, then G is a bipartite graph. Also they claim that if a ( p, q) −
graph G is odd harmonious, then 2 q ≤ p ≤ 2q − 1 , but this is not always correct. Take the path
P2 as a counter example.
In this paper, we show that the number of edges for any odd harmonious Eulernian graph must be
congruent to 0 or 2 (mod 4), and we found a counter example to prove that, not necessary every
Eulernian graph, with number of edges congruent to 0 or 2 (mod 4), to be an odd harmonious
graph. This result corresponds to the result in case G is graceful and Eulerian, which had been
stated and proved by rosa [4]. Also we show that many new families of graphs are odd
harmonious. For instance, we obtained the odd harmonious labelings for joining two copies of
even cycles with a common edge or with a common vertex and C n × Pm . Brief, new families of
odd harmonious graphs are introduced.
MAIN RESULTS
Theorem 2.1
If G is an odd harmonious Eulerian graph with q edges, then q ≡ 0 or 2 (mod 4).
Proof
Let G be an odd harmonious Eulerian graph, and let f : V(G) → {0, 1, 2, …, 2q-1} be an odd
harmonious labeling for G. Since G is an Eulerian graph then
( f (vi ) + f (v j )) = 2k , k is a
∑
constant. For each vi , vj ∈ V(G),
implies that
∑ f (v ) + f (v ) = 2k , so 1 + 3 + 5 + ... + 2q − 1 = 2k , this
'
i
'
j
q
(1 + 2q − 1) = 2k ' . Hence q ≡ 0 or 2 (mod 4).
2
The inverse of the last result is not true.
Remark 2.2
Not necessary every Eulernian graph with number of edges congruent to 0 or 2 (mod 4) to be an
odd harmonious graph.
Proof
By counter example: let G = C6 where C6 is Eulerian graph with q = 6, q ≡ 2 (mod 4), while C6 is
not odd harmonious follows from, every Cn is odd harmonious if and only if n ≡ 0 (mod 4), [10].

Theorem 2.3
Two copies of even cycle Cn sharing a common edge is an odd harmonious graph.
Proof
Let v1 , v 2 , ... , v n be the vertices of cycle Cn of even order. Consider two copies of cycle Cn. Let
G denotes the graph of two copies with even cycle Cn sharing a common edge, clearly G has

Now, we obtained all the edge labels {1, 3, 5,…, 4n-3} in each case, so f * is injective as
required. Hence G admits odd harmonious labeling.
Example 2.4. An odd harmonious labeling of two copies of cycles C12 sharing a common edge,
and an odd harmonious labeling of two copies of cycles C10 sharing a common edge are shown in
figure(1) and figure (2) respectively:
Figure (1): Two copies of cycle C12 sharing a common edge with its odd harmonious labeling.
Figure (2): Two copies of cycle C10 sharing a common edge with its odd harmonious labeling.
In the following theorems we mention only the vertices labels, the reader can fulfill the proof as
we did in the previous theorems.

Two copies of even cycle Cn sharing a common vertex is an odd harmonious graph when n ≡ 0
(mod 4).
Proof
Let v1 , v 2 , ... , v n be the vertices of cycle Cn , n ≡ 0 (mod 4). Consider G be the graph of two
copies of Cn sharing a common vertex with V (G ) = 2n − 1 and E (G ) = 2n . Without loss of

Remark 2.7
In theorems 2.3, 2.5 when n = 4, these theorems are coincided with corollary 3.12 (2) in [10]
when i = 2,1 respectively.
In 1980 Graham and Sloane [6], proved that Cm × Pn is harmonious when n is odd. We
generalized this result for odd harmonious labeling in the following theorem.

• The vertices v0 and wi , 1 ≤ i ≤ r , induce the edge labels {1, 3, 5, …, 2r - 1}.
• The vertices v0 and vi , 1 ≤ i ≤ n , induce the edge labels {2r +1, 2n + 2r + 3, …, 2(r +n)–1}.
• The vertices u0 and vi , 1 ≤ i ≤ n, induce the edge labels { 2(r + n) +1, 2(r + n) +3, …, 2(2n+r)
- 1}.
• The vertices u0 and ui, 1 ≤ i ≤ s, induce the edge labels {2(2n+r) + 1, 2(2n+r) + 3,…
, 2(2n+r+s) - 1}.
So we obtain the edge labels {1, 3, 5, …, 2(2n + r + s) - 1}. Hence the graph G is odd
harmonious.
Example 2.15. An odd harmonious labeling of the K2,5 (3, 4), is shown in Figure (12).

CONCLUSION
Since labelled graphs serve as practically useful models for wide-ranging applications such as
communications network, circuit design, coding theory, radar, astronomy, X-ray and
crystallography, it is desired to have generalized results or results for a whole class, if possible.
This work has presented several families of odd harmonious graphs. To investigate similar results
for other graph families and in the context of different labeling techniques is open area of
research.
