abstract="The colorful paths and rainbow paths have been considered by several authors. A colorful directed path in a digraph $G$ is a directed path with $\chi(G)$ vertices whose colors are different. A $v$-colorful directed path is such a directed path, starting from $v$. We prove that for a given $3$-regular triangle-free digraph $G$ determining whether there is a proper $\chi(G)$-coloring of $G$ such that for every $v \in V (G)$, there exists a $v$-colorful directed path is $ \mathbf{NP} $-complete.",

abstract="In this paper, we consider a class of column-weight two quasi-cyclic low-density parity check codes in which the girth can be large enough, as an arbitrary multiple of 8. Then we devote a convolutional form to these codes, such that their generator matrix can be obtained by elementary row and column operations on the parity-check matrix. Finally, we show that the free distance of the convolutional codes is equal to the minimum distance of
their block counterparts.",

abstract="The Frobenius complement of a given Frobenius group acts on its kernel. The scheme which is arisen from the orbitals of this action is called Ferrero pair scheme. In this paper, we show that the fibers of a Ferrero pair scheme consist of exactly one singleton fiber and every two fibers with more than one point have the same cardinality. Moreover, it is shown that the restriction of a Ferrero pair scheme on each fiber is isomorphic to a regular scheme. Finally, we prove that for any prime $p$, there exists a Ferrero pair $p$-scheme, and if $p> 2$, then the Ferrero pair $p$-schemes of the same rank are all isomorphic.",

pages="27-33",
abstract="We give a new recursive method to compute the number of cliques and cycles of a graph. This method is related, respectively to the number of disjoint cliques in the complement graph and to the sum of permanent function over all principal minors of the adjacency matrix of the graph. In particular, let $G$ be a graph and let $\overline {G}$ be its complement, then given the chromatic polynomial of $\overline {G}$, we give a recursive method to compute the number of cliques of $G$. Also given the adjacency matrix $A$ of $G$ we give a recursive method to compute the number of cycles by computing the sum of permanent function of the principal minors of $A$. In both cases we confront to a new computable parameter which is defined as the number of disjoint cliques in $G$.",
