### Eun Jung Kim (김은정), Directed flow-augmentation

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

We show a flow-augmentation algorithm in directed graphs: There exists a polynomial-time algorithm that, given a directed graph G, two integers $s,t\in V(G)$, and an integer $k$, adds (randomly) to $G$ a number of arcs such that for every minimal st-cut $Z$ in $G$ of size at most $k$, with probability $2^{−\operatorname{poly}(k)}$ the set $Z$

### Noleen Köhler, Testing first-order definable properties on bounded degree graphs

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Property testers are probabilistic algorithms aiming to solve a decision problem efficiently in the context of big-data. A property tester for a property P has to decide (with high probability correctly) whether a given input graph has property P or is far from having property P while having local access to the graph. We study

### Raul Lopes, Temporal Menger and related problems

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

A temporal graph is a graph whose edges are available only at specific times. In this scenario, the only valid walks are the ones traversing adjacent edges respecting their availability, i.e. sequence of adjacent edges whose appearing times are non-decreasing. Given a graph G and vertices s and t of G, Menger’s Theorem states that

### Jun Gao, Number of (k-1)-cliques in k-critical graph

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

We prove that for $n>k\geq 3$, if $G$ is an $n$-vertex graph with chromatic number $k$ but any its proper subgraph has smaller chromatic number, then $G$ contains at most $n-k+3$ copies of cliques of size $k-1$. This answers a problem of Abbott and Zhou and provides a tight bound on a conjecture of Gallai.

### Florent Koechlin, Uniform random expressions lack expressivity

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

In computer science, random expressions are commonly used to analyze algorithms, either to study their average complexity, or to generate benchmarks to test them experimentally. In general, these approaches only consider the expressions as purely syntactic trees, and completely ignore their semantics — i.e. the mathematical object represented by the expression. However, two different expressions
