#### Abstract

Resolving parameters are a fundamental area of combinatorics with applications not only to many branches of combinatorics but also to other sciences. In this study, we construct a class of Toeplitz graphs and will be denoted by so that they are Cayley graphs. First, we review some of the features of this class of graphs. In fact, this class of graphs is vertex transitive, and by calculating the spectrum of the adjacency matrix related with them, we show that this class of graphs cannot be edge transitive. Moreover, we show that this class of graphs cannot be distance regular, and because of the difficulty of the computing resolving parameters of a class of graphs which are not distance regular, we regard this as justification for our focus on some resolving parameters. In particular, we determine the minimal resolving set, doubly resolving set, and strong metric dimension for this class of graphs.

#### 1. Introduction

The graphs in this paper are simple, undirected, and connected. An automorphism of a graph is a permutation of the vertex set of with the property that, for any vertices and , we have is adjacent to in if and only if is adjacent to in . The set of all automorphisms of a graph , with the operation of composition of permutations, is a permutation group on and a subgroup of the symmetric group on . This is the automorphism group of , denoted by . Suppose and are two graphs. If there is a bijection, say , from to so that is adjacent to in if and only if is adjacent to in , then we say that is isomorphic to . If we consider a graph as a network, then the network stability is very important to us, and especially, if graph is vertex transitive, that is, acts transitively on , then the cost of studying the network will be very low, and hence, the network will be more stable. Consider a finite group , and suppose is a subset of so that it is closed under taking inverses and does not contain the identity; then, the Cayley graph has vertex set and edge set . Thus, the studying of Cayley graphs is very useful because every Cayley graph is vertex transitive [1]. The distance between any pair of vertices of is the length of geodesic between and , denoted by or simply . A vertex is said to resolve a pair if . Resolving parameters are a fundamental area of combinatorics with applications not only to many branches of combinatorics but also to other sciences. For an arranged subset of vertices in a connected graph , the metric representation of a vertex in is the -vector relative to . Also, the subset is considered as the resolving set for if any pair of vertices of is distinguished by some vertices of . A resolving set with least number of vertices is referred as metric basis for and the cardinality of such resolving set is known as metric dimension denoted by . The metric dimension of a graph is the least number of vertices in a set with the property that the list of distances from any vertex to those in the set uniquely identifies that vertex. The concept of the metric dimension in algebraic graph theory dates back to the 1970s. It was defined independently by Harary and Melter [2] and by Slater [3]. In recent years, a considerable literature has developed [4]. This concept has different applications in the areas of network discovery and verification [5]. For more details, see [6–9]. An (*n x n*) matrix is called a Toeplitz matrix if for each , see [10]. In fact, a Toeplitz matrix is a square matrix so that entries in every diagonal parallel to the main diagonal are equal, and hence, a Toeplitz matrix is determined by its first row and column. A simple undirected graph with vertex set and its adjacency matrix is called a Toeplitz graph if is the Toeplitz matrix. In this paper, we consider a class of Toeplitz graphs will be denoted by so that they are Cayley graphs as follows.

Let be a fixed even integer is greater than or equal ; also, let and be corresponding sets so that . Hence, we say that if . Now, let and be subsets of the set , and let be a refinement of union of the two sets and so that . We can see that a graph with vertices so that the vertices are labelled by the set and the edge set:which is Toeplitz graph . For more result of the Toeplitz graphs, see [11, 12]. Figure 1 shows the Toeplitz graph .

In particular, we can verify that the Toeplitz graph which is defined already is isomorphic to the Cayley graph , whereis the dihedral group of order , and is an inverse closed subset of . Thus, the Toeplitz graph is a vertex transitive. Also, for convenience, we can use the symbols in the Cayley graph , instead of the symbols in the Toeplitz graph . Some metrics for a class of distance regular graphs is computed in [13, 14]. On the contrary, because of the difficulty of the computing resolving parameters of a class of graphs which are not distance regular, we regard this as justification for our focus on some resolving parameters in the Cayley graph . The important results of this study are presented in Sections 3.1 and 3.2. In Section 3.1, first, we will be determining the automorphism group of the Cayley graph ; also, we will show that the Cayley graph cannot be distance regular. In particular, we will prove that the Cayley graph cannot be edge transitive. Moreover, in Section 3.2, we will be computing some resolving parameters for this class of Cayley graphs.

#### 3. Main Results

##### 3.1. Some of the Features of the Cayley Graph

In this section, we review some of the features of the Cayley graph . It is well known that the spectrum of a graph is the spectrum of the adjacency matrix related with it, that is, its set of eigenvalues together with their multiplicities. If all the eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix of a graph are integers, in this case, the graph related with it is called an integral graph, see [19]. As we shall see, the theory of integral graphs has connections to some parts of graph theory, edge transitivity, and symmetric graph. In the next theorem, we obtain the automorphism group of the Cayley graph by applications of wreath product in graph theory; for more details of the wreath product, see [20].

Proposition 3. *Let**be an even integer greater than or equal**, and**be a Cayley graph on the dihedral group**, where**is defined already. If**, then**, where**and*

*Proof. *We can see that the complement of , denoted by , is isomorphic to the disjoint union of copies of cocktail party graph , and we can show that is isomorphic to the , where is the cyclic group of order and , see Proposition 3.2 of [21]. Hence, given by the above discussion and the theorem in [22], we have . In particular, we have because a simple undirected graph and its complement have the same automorphism group.

Proposition 4. *Let**be an even integer greater than or equal**, and**be a Cayley graph on the dihedral group**, where**is defined already; then,**cannot be a distance regular graph.*

*Proof. *It is not hard to see that the diameter of is and is not a bipartite graph, because . Now, by a similar way, which is done in proof of Proposition 11 in [23], we can show that the adjacency matrix spectrum of is , where the superscripts give the multiplicities of eigenvalues with multiplicity greater than one. Hence, has exactly four distinct eigenvalues. Moreover, based on Proposition 2, we know that if is a distance regular graph with diameter , then has exactly distinct eigenvalues. Thus, cannot be a distance regular graph.

Proposition 5. *Let**be an even integer greater than or equal**and**be a Cayley graph on the dihedral group**, where**is defined already; then,**cannot be an edge transitive graph.*

*Proof. *By contradiction, suppose is an edge transitive graph. It is well known that a connected graph that is edge transitive and vertex transitive need not be 1-transitive. In particular, in p.59, 7.53 of [24], Tutte proved that if a connected graph, regular of odd valency, is both vertex and edge transitive, then it is 1-transitive. Thus, if is a edge transitive graph, then it must be is a 1-transitive graph because it is vertex transitive of odd valency . On the contrary, based on Proposition 1, if is a simple eigenvalue of a 1-transitive graph , then , which is not the case, see Proposition 4. This contradiction shows that cannot be an edge transitive graph.

#### 4. Conclusion

Computing resolving parameters of a graph is an NP-hard problem. In this study, we considered a class of Toeplitz graphs and we denoted by so that they are isomorphic to the Cayley graph , which is defined already. In fact, this class of graphs is vertex transitive, and by calculating the spectrum of the adjacency matrix related with them, we showed that this class of graphs cannot be edge transitive. Also, we proved that this class of graphs cannot be distance regular, and because of the difficulty of the computing resolving parameters of a class of graphs which are not distance regular, we regarded this as justification for our focus on some resolving parameters. In particular, we determined the minimal resolving set, doubly resolving set, and strong metric dimension for this class of graphs.
