8x8 Knight's graph
|Girth||4 (if n≥3, m≥ 5)|
In graph theory, a knight's graph, or a knight's tour graph, is a graph that represents all legal moves of the knight chess piece on a chessboard where each vertex represents a square on a chessboard and each edge is a legal move. More specifically, an knight's tour graph is a knight's tour graph of an chessboard.
For a knight's tour graph the total number of vertices is simply . For a knight's tour graph the total number of vertices is simply and the total number of edges is .
