#### Optimal Adjacent Vertex-Distinguishing Edge-Colorings of Circulant Graphs

##### Sylvain Gravier, Hippolyte Signargout, Souad Slimani

A k-proper edge-coloring of a graph G is called adjacent vertex-distinguishing if any two adjacent vertices are distinguished by the set of colors appearing in the edges incident to each vertex. The smallest value k for which G admits such coloring is denoted by $\chi$ a (G). We prove that $\chi$ a (G) = 2R + 1 for most circulant graphs C n ([[1, R]]).
