1 Assume that T is a tree that admits an ˛-valuation f and let A and B be its stable sets. Assume that jAj jBj. Without loss of restriction, we can also assume that the characteristic of f is assigned to jAj. v/ which verifies this condition. 3; 2/-EAV labelings of trees. 3 ([2]) Let T be tree that admits an ˛-valuation with stable sets A and B. 3; 2/-EAV labeling. Proof Let f be an ˛-valuation of a tree T of order p with characteristic k. 1, we can assume that jAj jBj and that the vertex labeled k belongs to A.

V//=2; if v 2 B: Thus, f assigns to the vertices of A the labels Œ0; dp=2e 1 and to the vertices of B the labels Œdp=2e; p 1. y//=2. T/g D Œ1; p 1, which implies that f is a graceful labeling of T. Since the labels of the vertices in A are less than the labels of the vertices in B, f is an ˛-valuation of T. This proves the result. 4. Using the two previous results the following theorem can be proved. 3; 2/-EAV labeling if and only if T admits an ˛-valuation and jjAj jBjj Ä 1, where A and B are the stable sets of T.

So far, this is still an open question and Enomoto et al. proposed the following conjecture, that has become very popular. 1 ([9]) All trees are super edge-magic. 2). From this point on, we will concentrate on the edge-magicness and the super edge-magicness of some specific families of graphs, and about what can be said about them. We already know that the star K1;n is super edge-magic, since it is a particular family of caterpillar. Moreover, we have the following result. 3 ([11]) There are exactly 3 2n distinct edge-magic labelings of the star K1;n , of which only two are super edge-magic, up to isomorphisms.
