### Cory Palmer, A survey of Turán-type subgraph counting problems

Let $F$ and $H$ be graphs. The subgraph counting function $\operatorname{ex}(n,H,F)$ is defined as the maximum possible number of subgraphs $H$ in an $n$-vertex $F$-free graph. This function is a direct generalization of the Turán function as $\operatorname{ex}(n,F)=\operatorname{ex}(n,K_2,F)$. The systematic study of $\operatorname{ex}(n,H,F)$ was initiated by Alon and Shikhelman in 2016 who generalized several classical results in extremal graph theory to the subgraph counting setting. Prior to their paper, a number of individual cases were investigated; a well-known example is…

### Casey Tompkins, Extremal problems for Berge hypergraphs

Given a graph $G$, there are several natural hypergraph families one can define. Among the least restrictive is the family $BG$ of so-called Berge copies of the graph $G$. In this talk, we discuss Turán problems for families $BG$ in $r$-uniform hypergraphs for various graphs $G$. In particular, we are interested in general results in two settings: the case when $r$ is large and $G$ is any graph where this Turán number is shown to be eventually subquadratic, as well…

A well-known Ramsey-type puzzle for children is to prove that among any 6 people either there are 3 who know each other or there are 3 who do not know each other. More generally, a graph $G$ arrows a graph $H$ if for any coloring of the edges of $G$ with two colors, there is a monochromatic copy of $H$. In these terms, the above puzzle claims that the complete $6$-vertex graph $K_6$ arrows the complete $3$-vertex graph $K_3$. We consider sufficient…

A graph or graph property is $\ell$-reconstructible if it is determined by the multiset of all subgraphs obtained by deleting $\ell$ vertices. Apart from the famous Graph Reconstruction Conjecture, Kelly conjectured in 1957 that for each $\ell\in\mathbb N$, there is an integer $n=n(\ell)$ such that every graph with at least $n$ vertices is $\ell$-reconstructible. We show that for each $n\ge7$ and every $n$-vertex graph $G$, the degree list and connectedness of $G$ are $3$-reconstructible, and the threshold $n\geq 7$ is sharp for both properties. We…
