Sang-il Oum (엄상일), What is an isotropic system?

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Bouchet introduced isotropic systems in 1983 unifying some combinatorial features of binary matroids and 4-regular graphs. The concept of isotropic system is a useful tool to study vertex-minors of graphs and yet it is not well  known. I will give an introduction to isotropic systems.

Jungho Ahn (안정호), Well-partitioned chordal graphs with the obstruction set and applications

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

We introduce a new subclass of chordal graphs that generalizes split graphs, which we call well-partitioned chordal graphs. Split graphs are graphs that admit a partition of the vertex set into cliques that can be arranged in a star structure, the leaves of which are of size one. Well-partitioned chordal graphs are a generalization of

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

Pascal Gollin, Enlarging vertex-flames in countable digraphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

A rooted digraph is a vertex-flame if for every vertex v there is a set of internally disjoint directed paths from the root to v whose set of terminal edges covers all ingoing edges of v. It was shown by Lovász that every finite rooted digraph admits a spanning subdigraph which is a vertex-flame and large, where the latter means

Ben Lund, Limit shape of lattice Zonotopes

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

A convex lattice polytope is the convex hull of a set of integral points. Vershik conjectured the existence of a limit shape for random convex lattice polygons, and three proofs of this conjecture were given in the 1990s by Bárány, by Vershik, and by Sinai. To state this old result more precisely, there is a

Doowon Koh (고두원), Mattila-Sjölin type functions: A finite field model

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Let $\mathbb{F}_q$ be a finite field of order $q$ which is a prime power. In the finite field setting, we say that a function $\phi\colon \mathbb{F}_q^d\times \mathbb{F}_q^d\to \mathbb{F}_q$ is a Mattila-Sjölin type function in $\mathbb{F}_q^d$ if for any $E\subset \mathbb{F}_q^d$ with $|E|\gg q^{\frac{d}{2}}$, we have $\phi(E, E)=\mathbb{F}_q$. The main purpose of this talk is to present

O-joung Kwon (권오정), Classes of intersection digraphs with good algorithmic properties

Zoom ID: 875 9395 3555 (relay) [CLOSED]

An intersection digraph is a digraph where every vertex $v$ is represented by an ordered pair $(S_v, T_v)$ of sets such that there is an edge from $v$ to $w$ if and only if $S_v$ and $T_w$ intersect. An intersection digraph is reflexive if $S_v\cap T_v\neq \emptyset$ for every vertex $v$. Compared to well-known undirected

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

Jeong Ok Choi (최정옥), Invertibility of circulant matrices of arbitrary size

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

In this talk, we present sufficient conditions to guarantee the invertibility of rational circulant matrices with any given size. These sufficient conditions consist of linear combinations in terms of the entries in the first row with integer coefficients. Using these conditions we show the invertibility of some family of circulant matrices with particular forms of

Suil O (오수일), Eigenvalues and [a, b]-factors in regular graphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

For positive integers, $r \ge 3, h \ge 1,$ and $k \ge 1$, Bollobás, Saito, and Wormald proved some sufficient conditions for an $h$-edge-connected $r$-regular graph to have a k-factor in 1985. Lu gave an upper bound for the third-largest eigenvalue in a connected $r$-regular graph to have a $k$-factor in 2010. Gu found an upper bound
