Mark Siggers, The list switch homomorphism problem for signed graphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

A signed graph is a graph in which each edge has a positive or negative sign. Calling two graphs switch equivalent if one can get from one to the other by the iteration of the local action of switching all signs on edges incident to a given vertex, we say that there is a switch

Johannes Carmesin, A Whitney type theorem for surfaces: characterising graphs with locally planar embeddings

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

Given a graph, how do we construct a surface so that the graph embeds in that surface in an optimal way? Thomassen showed that for minimum genus as optimality criterion, this problem would be NP-hard. Instead of minimum genus, here we use local planarity -- and provide a polynomial algorithm. Our embedding method is based

Benjamin Bumpus, Directed branch-width: A directed analogue of tree-width

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

Many problems that are NP-hard in general become tractable on `structurally recursive’ graph classes. For example, consider classes of bounded tree- or clique-width. Since the 1990s, many directed analogues of tree-width have been proposed. However, many natural problems (e.g. directed HamiltonPath and MaxCut) remain intractable on such digraph classes of `bounded width’. In this talk,

Dimitrios M. Thilikos, Bounding Obstructions sets: the cases of apices of minor closed classes

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

Given a minor-closed graph class ${\cal G}$, the (minor) obstruction of ${\cal G}$ is the set of all minor-minimal graphs not in ${\cal G}$. Given a non-negative integer $k$, we define the $k$-apex of ${\cal A}$ as the class containing every graph $G$ with a set $S$ of vertices whose removal from $G$ gives a graph

Hongseok Yang (양홍석), DAG-symmetries and Symmetry-Preserving Neural Networks

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

The preservation of symmetry is one of the key tools for designing data-efficient neural networks. A representative example is convolutional neural networks (CNNs); they preserve translation symmetries, and this symmetry preservation is often attributed to their success in real-world applications. In the machine-learning community, there is a growing body of work that explores a new

Alan Lew, Representability and boxicity of simplicial complexes

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

An interval graph is the intersection graph of a family of intervals in the real line. Motivated by problems in ecology, Roberts defined the boxicity of a graph G to be the minimal k such that G can be written as the intersection of k interval graphs. A natural higher-dimensional generalization of interval graphs is
