For a group G and X a subset of G, the commuting graph of G on X, denoted by C(G,X), is the graph whose vertex set is X with x, y in X joined by an edge if x is not equal to y and x and y commute. If the elements in X are involutions, then C(G,X) is called a commuting involution graph. This thesis studies C(G,X) when G is either a 4-dimensional projective symplectic group; a 3-dimensional unitary group; 4-dimensional unitary group over a field of characteristic 2; a 2-dimensional projective general linear group; or a 4-dimensional affine orthogonal group, and X a G-conjugacy class of involutions. We determine the diameters and structure of the discs of these graphs.
