Andrzej Grzesik, Rainbow Turán problems

Room S221 IBS (기초과학연구원) Science Culture Center

In a rainbow variant of the Turán problem, we consider $k$ graphs on the same set of vertices and want to determine the smallest possible number of edges in each graph, which guarantees the existence of a copy of a given graph $F$ containing at most one edge from each graph. In other words, we

Dong Yeap Kang (강동엽), Hamilton cycles and optimal matchings in a random subgraph of uniform Dirac hypergraphs

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

A loose cycle is a cyclic ordering of edges such that every two consecutive edges share exactly one vertex. A cycle is Hamilton if it spans all vertices. A codegree of a $k$-uniform hypergraph is the minimum nonnegative integer $t$ such that every subset of vertices of size $k-1$ is contained in $t$ distinct edges.

Daniel Kráľ, High chromatic common graphs

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Ramsey's Theorem guarantees for every graph H that any 2-edge-coloring of a sufficiently large complete graph contains a monochromatic copy of H. As probabilistic constructions often provide good bounds on quantities in extremal combinatorics, we say that a graph H is common if the random 2-edge-coloring asymptotically minimizes the number of monochromatic copies of H.

R. Amzi Jeffs, Intersection patterns of convex sets

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

How can one arrange a collection of convex sets in d-dimensional Euclidean space? This guiding question is fundamental in discrete geometry, and can be made concrete in a variety of ways, for example the study of hyperplane arrangements, embeddability of simplicial complexes, Helly-type theorems, and more. This talk will focus on the classical topic of d-representable

Linda Cook, Orientations of $P_4$ bind the dichromatic number

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

An oriented graph is a digraph that does not contain a directed cycle of length two. An (oriented) graph $D$ is $H$-free if $D$ does not contain $H$ as an induced sub(di)graph. The Gyárfás-Sumner conjecture is a widely-open conjecture on simple graphs, which states that for any forest $F$, there is some function $f$ such

Dabeen Lee (이다빈), From coordinate subspaces over finite fields to ideal multipartite uniform clutters

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Take a prime power $q$, an integer $n\geq 2$, and a coordinate subspace $S\subseteq GF(q)^n$ over the Galois field $GF(q)$. One can associate with $S$ an $n$-partite $n$-uniform clutter $\mathcal{C}$, where every part has size $q$ and there is a bijection between the vectors in $S$ and the members of $\mathcal{C}$. In this paper, we

Sebastian Wiederrecht, Delineating half-integrality of the Erdős-Pósa property for minors

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

In 1986, Robertson and Seymour proved a generalization of the seminal result of Erdős and Pósa on the duality of packing and covering cycles: A graph has the Erdős-Pósa property for minor if and only if it is planar. In particular, for every non-planar graph $H$ they gave examples showing that the Erdős-Pósa property does

Seog-Jin Kim (김석진), The square of every subcubic planar graph of girth at least 6 is 7-choosable

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

The square of a graph $G$, denoted $G^2$, has the same vertex set as $G$ and has an edge between two vertices if the distance between them in $G$ is at most $2$. Wegner's conjecture (1977) states that for a planar graph $G$, the chromatic number $\chi(G^2)$ of $G^2$ is at most 7 if $\Delta(G)

Donggyu Kim (김동규), Orthogonal matroids over tracts

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Even delta-matroids generalize matroids, as they are defined by a certain basis exchange axiom weaker than that of matroids. One natural example of even delta-matroids comes from a skew-symmetric matrix over a given field $K$, and we say such an even delta-matroid is representable over the field $K$. Interestingly, a matroid is representable over $K$

Carl R. Yerger, Solving Problems in Graph Pebbling using Optimization and Structural Techniques

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Graph pebbling is a combinatorial game played on an undirected graph with an initial configuration of pebbles. A pebbling move consists of removing two pebbles from one vertex and placing one pebbling on an adjacent vertex. The pebbling number of a graph is the smallest number of pebbles necessary such that, given any initial configuration
