ABSTRACT:

The packing chromatic number χ$_{p}$(G) of a graph G = (V,E) is the smallest integer k such that the vertex set V(G) can be partitioned into disjoint classes V1 ,V2 ,…,V, where vertices in Vhave pairwise distance greater than i. In this paper, we compute the packing chromatic number of circulant graphs with different jump sizes.$_{}$
