Dong Yeap Kang (강동엽), A proof of the Erdős-Faber-Lovász conjecture

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

A hypergraph is linear if every pair of two distinct edges shares at most one vertex. A longstanding conjecture by Erdős, Faber, and Lovász in 1972, states that the chromatic index of any linear hypergraph on $n$ vertices is at most $n$. In this talk, I will present the ideas to prove the conjecture for

Ron Aharoni, Colorful KKM and multiple cakes division

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

In the "cake partition" problem n players have each a list of preferred parts for any partition of the interval ("cake") into n sub-intervals. Woodall, Stromquist and Gale proved independently that under mild conditions on the list of preferences (like continuity) there is always a partition and assignment of parts to the players, in which every player gets

David Wood, Tree densities of sparse graph classes

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

This talk considers the following question at the intersection of extremal and structural graph theory: What is the maximum number of copies of a fixed forest $T$ in an $n$-vertex graph in a graph class $\mathcal{G}$ as $n\to \infty$? I will answer this question for a variety of sparse graph classes $\mathcal{G}$. In particular, we show that the answer is


Seymour is Seventy

ENS de Lyon, Lyon, France

A conference honouring the seventieth birthday of Paul Seymour To be held in ENS de Lyon, France, June 15 - 19, 2020. Due to the COVID-19, the organizers decided to postpone the conference “Seymour is Seventy”. We hope to run this event in the summer of 2022 instead. Specific decisions on the dates are to

MATRIX-IBS Workshop: Structural Graph Theory Downunder II

MATRIX, Australia

This program consists of a short intensive workshop, where mathematicians from across the globe will come together to work on open problems in structural graph theory. We will consider the following research themes: graph minors, graph colouring, Hadwiger’s Conjecture, bounded expansion classes, graph product structure theory, generalised colouring numbers, VC dimension, induced subgraphs, Erdös-Hajnal conjecture,
