A table of small quartic graphs

This page is modeled after the handy wikipedia page Table of simple cubic graphs of “small” connected 3-regular graphs, where by small I mean at most 11 vertices.

These graphs are obtained using the SageMath command graphs(n, [4]*n), where n = 5,6,7,… .

5 vertices: Let V=\{0,1,2,3,4\} denote the vertex set. There is (up to isomorphism) exactly one 4-regular connected graphs on 5 vertices. By Ore’s Theorem, this graph is Hamiltonian. By Euler’s Theorem, it is Eulerian.
4reg5a: The only such 4-regular graph is the complete graph \Gamma = K_5.

Without going into details, it is possible to theoretically prove that there are no harmonic morphisms from any of these graphs to either the cycle graph C_4 or the complete graph K_4.
