Is an extremal graph found by GraPHedron. See "H. Melot, Facet defining inequalities among graph invariants: the system graphedron. Discrete Applied Mathematics 156 (2008), 1875-1891" for more information.

Line graph of the complete-4. Van Rooij and Wilf show this is one of only three line graphs which contain two even triangles with an edge in common. (The other such line graphs are the wheel-5 by deleting any vertex of the present graph, and the diamond/kite graph by deleting any 2 adjacent vertices of the present graph leaving two triangles and nothing else.)

This graph has 15 minimal dominating sets which is the most of any n=6 vertices. It is the only n=6 with this many.

Fomin et al report Kratsch noted that taking disjoint copies of this graph gives graphs of (15^(1/6))^n = 1.5704^n many minimal dominating sets. (15^(1/6) is OEIS A011350.)

A connected integral graph. A graph is called integral if all of its eigenvalues of its adjacency matrix are integral. See "Krzysztof T. ZwierzyƄski, Generating Integral Graphs Using PRACE Research Infrastructure" for more information.
