Rainbow Induced Subgraphs in Replication Graphs

Marek Szykuła, Andrzej Kisielewicz

A graph $G$ is called a replication graph of a graph $H$ if $G$ is obtained from $H$ by replacing vertices of $H$ by arbitrary cliques of vertices and then replacing each edge in $H$ by all the edges between corresponding cligues. For a given graph $H$ the $\rho_R(H)$ is the minimal number of vertices of a replication graph $G$ of $H$ such that every proper vertex coloring of $G$ contains a rainbow induced subgraph isomorphic to $H$ having exactly one vertex in each replication clique of $G$. We prove some bounds for $\rho_R$ for some classes of graphs and compute some exact values. Also some experimental results obtained by a computer search are presented and conjectures based on them are formulated.
