Huy-Tung Nguyen, The average cut-rank of graphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

The cut-rank of a set X of vertices in a graph G is defined as the rank of the X×(V(G)∖X) matrix over the binary field whose (i,j)-entry is 1 if the vertex i in X is adjacent to the vertex j in V(G)∖X and 0 otherwise. We introduce the graph parameter called the average cut-rank

Jiseung Kim (김지승), Hardness and concrete security in cryptography

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Computationally hard problems have been widely used to construct cryptographic primitives such as encryptions, digital signatures. For example, provably secure primitives are based on a reduction from the hardness problems. However, the concrete instantiation of primitives does not follow the results of hardness problems due to its efficiency. In this talk, we introduce cryptographic hardness

Andreas Holmsen, Fractional Helly and topological complexity

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

The fractional Helly theorem is a simple yet remarkable generalization of Helly's classical theorem on the intersection of convex sets, and it is of considerable interest to extend the fractional Helly theorem beyond the setting of convexity. In this talk I will discuss a recent result which shows that the fractional Helly theorem holds for families

Seog-Jin Kim (김석진), Online DP-coloring of graphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Online list coloring and DP-coloring are generalizations of list coloring that attracted considerable attention recently. Each of the paint number, $\chi_P(G)$, (the minimum number of colors needed for an online coloring of $G$) and the DP-chromatic number, $\chi_{DP}(G)$, (the minimum number of colors needed for a DP-coloring of $G$) is at least the list chromatic

Ilkyoo Choi (최일규), Flexibility of Planar Graphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Oftentimes in chromatic graph theory, precoloring techniques are utilized in order to obtain the desired coloring result. For example, Thomassen's proof for 5-choosability of planar graphs actually shows that two adjacent vertices on the same face can be precolored. In this vein, we investigate a precoloring extension problem formalized by Dvorak, Norin, and Postle named flexibility. Given a
