Author’s abstract: “Let \(D_ n\) denote the convex hull in \(\mathbb{R}^ n\) of all (ordered) degree sequences of simple \(n\)-vertex graphs. Using the fact that \(D_ n\) is a zonotope, an explicit generating functions is found for the number of these degree sequences. The \(f\)-vector of \(D_ n\) is found using Zaslavsky’s theory of signed graph colorings. Finally we give a generalization based on a result of Fulkerson, Hoffman, and MacAndrew.”.
