In this paper, we consider the intersection graph I Γ(ℤn) of gamma sets in the total graph on ℤn. We characterize the values of n for which I Γ(ℤn) is complete, bipartite, cycle, chordal and planar. Further, we prove that I Γ(ℤn) is an Eulerian, Hamiltonian and as well as a pancyclic graph. Also we obtain the value of the independent number, the clique number, the chromatic number, the connectivity and some domination parameters of I Γ(ℤn).

Keywords: total graph, gamma sets, intersection graph, Hamiltonian, coloring, connectivity, domination number
