### On b-Coloring Parameters of Some Classes of Graphs

#### Abstract

*Abstract*

*Vertex coloring has always been a topic of interest. Motivated by the studies on **-chromatic mean and variance of some standard graphs, in this paper, we obtain few results for **-chromatic and **-chromatic mean and variance of some cycle related graph classes. Here, Vertex coloring of a graph ** is taken to be the random experiment. Discrete random variable ** for this random experiment is the color of randomly chosen vertex of **. *

*Mathematics Subject Classification**: 05C15, 05C75. *

*Keywords**: **-coloring, coloring mean, coloring variance, **-chromatic mean, **-chromatic variance.*
