Nonrepetitive graph colouring

09/04/2020 ∙ by David R. Wood, et al. ∙ 0

A vertex colouring of a graph G is "nonrepetitive" if G contains no path for which the first half of the path is assigned the same sequence of colours as the second half. Thue's famous theorem says that every path is nonrepetitively 3-colourable. This paper surveys results about nonrepetitive colourings of graphs. The goal is to give a unified and comprehensive presentation of the major results and proof methods, as well as to highlight numerous open problems.
