Title:  On the bandwidths of a graph and its complement. (In English)
Source:  The theory and applications of graphs; 4th int. Conf., Kalamazoo/Mich. 1980, 243-253 (1981).
Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 459.00006.]
In this paper it is shown that the bandwidth of a graph on m vertices and that of its complement sum to at least n-2 and at most 2n-c log n. Other proofs of the former, or of an equivalent result are also given by Milner and Sauer and by J.Kahn and the reviewer [Discrete Math. 33, 323-325 (1981; Zbl 451.05039)]
