Abstract: Given a graph $ X$, define the presentation $ PX$ to have generators the vertices of $ X$, and a relation $ xy = yx$ for each pair $ x,y$ of adjacent vertices. Let $ GX$ be the group with presentation $ PX$, and given a field $ K$, let $ KX$ denote the $ K$-algebra with presentation $ PX$. Given graphs $ X$ and $ Y$ and a field $ K$, it is known that the algebras $ KX$ and $ KY$ are isomorphic if and only if the graphs $ X$ and $ Y$ are isomorphic. In this paper, we use this fact to prove that if the groups $ GX$ and $ GY$ are isomorphic, then so are the graphs $ X$ and $ Y$.
