Abstract: Several application fields require finding Euclidean coordinates consistent with a set of distances. More precisely, given a simple undirected edge-weighted graph, we wish to find a realization in a Euclidean space so that adjacent vertices are placed at a distance which is equal to the corresponding edge weight. Realizations of a graph can be either flexible or rigid. In certain cases, rigidity can be seen as a property of the graph rather than the realization. In the last decade, several advances have been made in graph rigidity, but most of these, for applicative reasons, focus on graphs having a unique realization. In this paper we consider a particular type of weighted Henneberg graphs that model protein backbones and show that almost all of them give rise to sets of incongruent realizations whose cardinality is a power of two.
