LOCALLY PRIMITIVE GRAPHS AND BIDIRECT PRODUCTS OF GRAPHS

  • CAI HENG LI (a1) (a2) and LI MA (a3)

Abstract

We characterise regular bipartite locally primitive graphs of order 2pe, where p is prime. We show that either p=2 (this case is known by previous work), or the graph is a binormal Cayley graph or a normal cover of one of the basic locally primitive graphs; these are described in detail.
