On the CozeroDivisor Graphs of Commutative Rings and Their Complements
Mojgan Afkhami and Kazem Khashyarmanesh
Abstract.
Let $R$ be a commutative ring with nonzero identity. The cozerodivisor graph of $R$, denoted by $\Gamma'(R)$, is a graph with vertices in $W^*(R)$, which is the set of all nonzero and nonunit elements of $R$, and two distinct vertices $a$ and $b$ in $W^*(R)$ are adjacent if and only if $a\notin bR$ and $b\notin aR$. In this paper, we characterize all commutative rings whose cozerodivisor graphs are forest, star, doublestar or unicyclic.
