Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

A graph G = (V,E) is word-representable if there exists a word w over the alphabet V such that letters x and y alternate in w if and only if (x,y) is an edge in E . A recent elegant result of Akrobotu et al. [1] states that a triangulation of any convex polyomino is word-representable if and only if it is 3-colourable. In this paper, we generalize a particular case of this result by showing that the result of Akrobotu et al. [1] is true even if we allow a domino tile, instead of having just 1x1 tiles on a rectangular polyomino.
