We describe a new algorithm for the efficient generation of all nonisomorphic connected cubic graphs. Our implementation of this algorithm is more than 4 times faster than previous generators. The generation can also be efficiently restricted to cubic graphs with girth at least 4 or 5.

The largest known 3regular planar graph with diameter 3 has 12 vertices. We consider the problem of determining whether there is a larger graph with these properties. We find all nonisomorphic 3regular, diameter3 planar graphs, thus solving the problem completely. There are none with more than 12 vertices. An Upper Bound A graph with maximum degree \Delta and diameter D is called a (\Delta; D)graph. It is easily seen ([9], p. 171) that the order of a (\Delta,D)graph is bounded above by the Moore bound, which is given by 1+ \Delta + \Delta (\Delta \Gamma 1) + \Delta \Delta \Delta + \Delta(\Delta \Gamma 1) D\Gamma1 = 8 ? ! ? : \Delta(\Delta \Gamma 1) D \Gamma 2 \Delta \Gamma 2 if \Delta 6= 2; 2D + 1 if \Delta = 2: Figure 1: The regular (3,3)graph on 20 vertices (it is unique up to isomorphism) . For D 2 and \Delta 3, this bound is attained only if D = 2 and \Delta = 3; 7, and (perhaps) 57 [3, 14, 23]. Now, except for the case of C 4 (the cycle on four vertices), the num...
