# build a graph with smallest diameter, N verteces, each vertex has degree $\ge k$

I need to build a graph with number of vertexes N such that each vertex has degree at least k and the graph has the smallest diameter. I believe that this question should be well studied.

EDIT: yes complete graph is an answer, but not interesting. I am changing the question a little bit: each vertex has degree k.

This is almost a good question. The problem is that it appears you have put almost no effort into the question yourself. May I suggest including (a) necessary conditions on the existence of k-regular n-vertex graphs (b) resolving the 1-regular, 2-regular, (n-1)-regular and n-regular cases. Note, that PhD theses are written about the degree-diameter problem, and this is not far off -- it might be difficult to answer this question just for 3-regular (cubic) graphs. – Douglas S.

The complete graph on $N$ vertices, $K_N$, will be hard to beat. If $k \gt N-1$ are you allowed multiple edges between a given pair of vertices? I hope so.
