 construct Mycielski graph from graph

 Calling Sequence Mycielski(G)

Parameters

 G - undirected graph

Description

 • Mycielski is a graph construction which, given a graph G on $n$ vertices, returns a graph on $2n+1$ vertices. If G is triangle-free with chromatic number $k$, then the returned graph is triangle-free with chromatic number $k+1$.
