Geometry has been outlined as that a part of arithmetic which makes entice the experience of sight; yet this definition is thrown unsure via the life of significant geometers who have been blind or approximately so, reminiscent of Leonhard Euler. occasionally apparently geometric equipment in research, so-called, consist in having recourse to notions open air these it sounds as if suitable, in order that geometry needs to be the becoming a member of of not like strands; yet then what lets say of the significance of axiomatic programmes in geometry, the place connection with notions outdoor a constrained reper­ tory is banned? no matter what its definition, geometry in actual fact has been greater than the sum of its effects, greater than the implications of a few few axiom units. it's been a huge present in arithmetic, with a particular technique and a distinc­ ti v e spirit. A present, additionally, which has no longer been consistent. within the Thirties, after a interval of pervasive prominence, it in decline, even passe. those related years have been these during which H. S. M. Coxeter used to be starting his medical paintings. Undeterred through the unfashionability of geometry, Coxeter pursued it with devotion and notion. via the Nineteen Fifties he seemed to the wider mathematical international as a consummate practitioner of a unusual, out-of-the-way artwork. this day there's no longer whatever that out-of-the-way approximately it. Coxeter has contributed to, exemplified, lets virtually say presided over an unanticipated and dra­ matic revival of geometry.

We define its complement graph Gc = (V, E c ) so that two distinct vertices v, w ∈ V are adjacent to each other in Gc if and only if they are not adjacent to each other in G. Then GK = (V, E ∪ E c ) is a K¨ahler graph. We call this the complement-filled K¨ ahler graph of G. We can construct many examples of K¨ahler graphs by taking products and by considering Cayley graphs (see [10 ,11 ,12 ,14 ]). Since we have graphs admitting a “structure”, we here introduce objects corresponding to trajectories for magnetic fields.
