We look at the behavior under state splitting of distinct kinds of
properties regarding monochromatic paths on edge colored digraphs.
These are absorbance and independence as well as the existence of
kernels, semikernels, quasikernels and Grundy functions, all of them
defined in terms of monochromatic paths.
Keywords: absorbance, independence, kernel, semikernel, quasikernel,
Grundy function, monochromatic path, state splitting, duality

There has always been interest in studying properties of digraphs under
different kinds of operations (see , , , ). Results concerning the
line digraph operator have motivated other kind of operations to be studied.
In  the authors look at simple state splitting (a fundamental operation in
symbolic dynamics), and generalize results known for line digraphs. Here we
