Cheolwon Heo (허철원), The complexity of the matroid-homomorphism problems

Monday, May 2, 2022 @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM KST

Room B332, IBS (기초과학연구원)


Cheolwon Heo (허철원)
Applied Algebra and Optimization Research Center (AORC), Sungkyunkwan University

In this talk, we introduce homomorphisms between binary matroids that generalize graph homomorphisms. For a binary matroid $N$, we prove a complexity dichotomy for the problem $\rm{Hom}_\mathbb{M}(N)$ of deciding if a binary matroid $M$ admits a homomorphism to $N$. The problem is polynomial-time solvable if $N$ has a loop or has no circuits of odd length, and is otherwise $\rm{NP}$-complete. We also get dichotomies for the list, extension, and retraction versions of the problem.
This is joint work with Hyobin Kim and Mark Siggers at Kyungpook National University.
