EN|RU Volume 16, No 5, 2009, P. 19-25 UDC 519.17 V. E. Alekseev, S. V. Sorochan On the entropy minimal hereditary classes of coloured graphs Abstract: We consider hereditary classes of graphs with coloured edges. The class is called entropy minimal if it does not contain proper hereditary subclasses having the same entropy value (logarithmic density). It is known for simple graphs that, for arbitrary fixed $a$ and $b$, the class consisting of all graphs admitting a partition by $a$ cliques and $b$ independent sets is entropy minimal. We prove a generalization of this statement for coloured graphs. Bibl. 5. Keywords: hereditary class, entropy, entropy minimal class.
