**Problem2B: How many trees **** are there on the set of vertices** **in which the vertices** **and** **have degree** **, vertex** **has degree** **, and hence all others have degree** **? Do not just draw pictures but consider the possible Prufer codes of these trees.**

**Solution:** There is a one-to-one correspondence from the labeled trees on vertices and the -dimensional vectors over . It is called Prufer code. The number of times that a vertex appears in the Prufer code, is the degree of vertex in the labeled tree minus one. So vertices and will appear twice, and vertex appears once in the code. There are such codes, so that there are labeled trees of this type.

**Note: **It is not easy to obtain a one-to-one mapping from the objects we study to some other objects easier to study. If there is sth. like this, it will be a big step up with great pleasure. Well, usually, we try building up some mappings for easier research, analyze the properties of the images, and check how much information and how it is revealed from the images. Some other examples?
