SUMMARY:Vadim Lozin\, Graph problems and monotone classes
DESCRIPTION:Very little is known about critical properties of graphs in the hierarchy of monotone classes\, i.e. classes closed under taking (not necessarily induced) subgraphs. We distinguish four important levels in this hierarchy and discuss possible new levels by focusing on the Hamiltonian cycle problem. In particular\, we obtain a number of results for this problem on monotone classes.

SUMMARY:Yongho Shin (신용호)\, Three-way online correlated selection
DESCRIPTION:Two-way online correlated selection (two-way OCS) is an online algorithm that\, at each timestep\, takes a pair of elements from the ground set and irrevocably chooses one of the two elements\, while ensuring negative correlation in the algorithm’s choices. OCS was initially invented by Fahrbach\, Huang\, Tao\, and Zadimoghaddam (FOCS 2020\, JACM 2022) to break a natural long-standing barrier in edge-weighted online bipartite matching. They posed two open questions\, one of which was the following: Can we obtain n-way OCS for $n >2$\, in which the algorithm can be given $n >2$ elements to choose from at each timestep? \nIn this talk\, we affirmatively answer this open question by presenting a three-way OCS which is simple to describe: it internally runs two instances of two-way OCS\, one of which is fed with the output of the other. Contrast to its simple construction\, we face a new challenge in analysis that the final output probability distribution of our three-way OCS is highly elusive since it requires the actual output distribution of two-way OCS. We show how we tackle this challenge by approximating the output distribution of two-way OCS by a flatter distribution serving as a safe surrogate. \nThis is joint work with Hyung-Chan An.

SUMMARY:Jane Tan\, Semi-strong colourings of hypergraphs
DESCRIPTION:A vertex colouring of a hypergraph is $c$-strong if every edge $e$ sees at least $\min\{c\, |e|\}$ distinct colours. Let $\chi(t\,c)$ denote the least number of colours needed so that every $t$-intersecting hypergraph has a $c$-strong colouring. In 2012\, Blais\, Weinstein and Yoshida introduced this parameter and initiated study on when $\chi(t\,c)$ is finite: they showed that $\chi(t\,c)$ is finite whenever $t \geq c$ and unbounded when $t\leq c-2$. The boundary case $\chi(c-1\, c)$ has remained elusive for some time: $\chi(1\,2)$ is known to be finite by an easy classical result\, and $\chi(2\,3)$ was shown to be finite by Chung and independently by Colucci and Gyárfás in 2013. In this talk\, we present some recent work with Kevin Hendrey\, Freddie Illingworth and Nina Kamčev in which we fill in this gap by showing that $\chi(c-1\, c)$ is finite in general.

SUMMARY:2024 Summer School on Combinatorics and Algorithms (2024 조합론 및 알고리즘 여름학교)
DESCRIPTION:The 2024 Summer School on Combinatorics and Algorithms is a venue for students and early-career researchers to learn selected topics in theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics. It will be a great opportunity for young and aspiring researchers to study topics which are important but not covered during the lectures in the university classes. This summer\, two lecture series\, combinatorial optimization and grid minor theorem\, will be given by two leading experts on the subjects. There will be exercise sessions where you form a team and solve challenging questions related to the lecture subjects. \nWebsite: https://combialgo.dimag.kr/ \nLecturers and Topics\n\nChien-Chung Huang (ENS Paris\, France): Combinatorial Optimization\n\nThis lecture (12.5h) will cover essential topics in combinatorial optimization including: Berge’s theorem\, Konig’s theorem\, Egervary’s theorem\, Karger’s min-cut algorithm and Gomory-Hu trees\, Edmonds’ blossom algorithm for maximum matching\, matroid 101\, multi-commodity flow and k-coverage problems. \n\nSebastian Wiederrecht (DIMAG-IBS\, Korea): From treewidth to grid minor theorem\n\nThis lecture (6h) will present the notion of tree decomposition\, treewidth and graph minor\, and introduce the grid minor theorem by Robertson and Seymour. Grid minor theory is deemed as one of the most important theory in modern graph theory and has many applications in algorithms design\, data structure\, logic\, etc.

SUMMARY:2024 Workshop on (Mostly) Matroids
DESCRIPTION:The 2024 Workshop on (Mostly) Matroids will be held in-person at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS)\, Daejeon\, South Korea\, from August 19\, 2024 to August 23\, 2024. We expect that most people would arrive on Sunday\, August 18 and leave on Saturday\, August 24. \nOur hope is that this workshop will continue the tradition of previous workshops held in Sittard (2008)\, Maastricht (2010\,2012)\, Princeton (2014)\, Eindhoven(2016)\, Waterloo (2017)\, and Baton Rouge (2019). The focus will be on all aspects of matroid theory\, including its connection to graph theory\, algebraic geometry\, and other areas of mathematics. \n

SUMMARY:Amadeus Reinald\, Oriented trees in $O(k \sqrt{k})$-chromatic digraphs\, a subquadratic bound for Burr's conjecture
DESCRIPTION:In 1980\, Burr conjectured that every directed graph with chromatic number $2k-2$ contains any oriented tree of order $k$ as a subdigraph. Burr showed that chromatic number $(k-1)^2$ suffices\, which was improved in 2013 to $\frac{k^2}{2} – \frac{k}{2} + 1$ by Addario-Berry et al. \nIn this talk\, we give the first subquadratic bound for Burr’s conjecture\, by showing that every directed graph with chromatic number $8\sqrt{\frac{2}{15}} k \sqrt{k} + O(k)$ contains any oriented tree of order $k$. Moreover\, we provide improved bounds of $\sqrt{\frac{4}{3}} k \sqrt{k}+O(k)$ for arborescences\, and $(b-1)(k-3)+3$ for paths on $b$ blocks\, with $b\ge 2$.
