Bjarne Schülke, A local version of Katona’s intersection theorem

Tuesday, September 6, 2022 @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM KST

Room B332, IBS (기초과학연구원)

Katona’s intersection theorem states that every intersecting family $\mathcal F\subseteq[n]^{(k)}$ satisfies $\vert\partial\mathcal F\vert\geq\vert\mathcal F\vert$, where $\partial\mathcal F=\{F\setminus x:x\in F\in\mathcal F\}$ is the shadow of $\mathcal F$.
Frankl conjectured that for $n>2k$ and every intersecting family $\mathcal F\subseteq [n]^{(k)}$, there is some $i\in[n]$ such that $\vert \partial \mathcal F(i)\vert\geq \vert\mathcal F(i)\vert$, where $\mathcal F(i)=\{F\setminus i:i\in F\in\mathcal F\}$ is the link of $\mathcal F$ at $i$.

Here, we prove this conjecture in a very strong form for $n> \binom{k+1}{2}$.

In particular, our result implies that for any $j\in[k]$, there is a $j$-set $\{a_1,\dots,a_j\}\in[n]^{(j)}$ such that \[ \vert \partial \mathcal F(a_1,\dots,a_j)\vert\geq \vert\mathcal F(a_1,\dots,a_j)\vert.\]A similar statement is also obtained for cross-intersecting families.
