In this paper, we introduce the zero divisor graph G _{ I }(P) of a poset P (with 0) with respect to an ideal I. It is shown that G _{ I }(P) is connected with its diameter ≤3, and if G _{ I }(P) contains a cycle, then the core K of G _{ I }(P) is a union of 3cycles and 4cycles. Further, the chromatic number and clique number of G _{ I }(P) are shown to be equal. This proves a form of Beck’s conjecture for posets with 0. The complete bipartite zero divisor graphs are characterized.
Dedicated to Professor N. K. Thakare on his 71st birthday.
