Graph Theory Notation Question

    I'm not sure if this warrants a full post, but I am doing my homework and I came across notation I'm not familiar with. Skimming the chapter it's not in there either.

    It says "Draw W6" but W6 has a bar over it, like complex conjugate. What does this mean? I know what W6 looks like.

    Without seeing any context, my best guess is that ##\overline{W_6}## means the complement of ##W_6## -- everything in the graph that isn't in ##W_6##. An image of the page might be helpful.
