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.

Abstract

We present families of large undirected and directed Cayley graphs whose construction is related to butterfly networks. One approach yields, for every large k and for values of d taken from a large interval, the largest known Cayley graphs and digraphs of diameter k and degree d. Another method yields, for sufficiently large k and infinitely many values of d, Cayley graphs and digraphs of diameter k and degree d whose order is exponentially larger in k than any previously constructed. In the directed case, these are within a linear factor in k of the Moore bound.
