## Abstract

For a graph G, its cubicity View the MathML source is the minimum dimension k such that Gis representable as the intersection graph of (axis-parallel) cubes in k-dimensional space. (A k-dimensional cube is a Cartesian product R1×R2×cdots, three dots, centered×Rk, where Ri is a closed interval of the form [ai,ai+1] on the real line.) Chandran et al. [L.S. Chandran, C. Mannino, G. Oriolo, On the cubicity of certain graphs, Information Processing Letters 94 (2005) 113–118] showed that for a d-dimensional hypercube Hd, View the MathML source. In this paper, we use the probabilistic method to show that View the MathML source. The parameter boxicity generalizes cubicity: the boxicity View the MathML source of a graph G is defined as the minimum dimension k such that G is representable as the intersection graph of axis-parallel boxes in k-dimensional space. Since View the MathML source for any graph G, our result implies that View the MathML source. The problem of determining a non-trivial lower bound for View the MathML source is left open.
