Tuukka Korhonen, Fast FPT-Approximation of Branchwidth

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

Branchwidth determines how graphs, and more generally, arbitrary connectivity (basically symmetric and submodular) functions could be decomposed into a tree-like structure by specific cuts. We develop a general framework for designing fixed-parameter tractable (FPT) 2-approximation algorithms for branchwidth of connectivity functions. The first ingredient of our framework is combinatorial. We prove a structural theorem establishing

Seonghyuk Im (임성혁), Large clique subdivisions in graphs without small dense subgraphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

What is the largest number $f(d)$ where every graph with average degree at least $d$ contains a subdivision of $K_{f(d)}$? Mader asked this question in 1967 and $f(d) = \Theta(\sqrt{d})$ was proved by Bollobás and Thomason and independently by Komlós and Szemerédi. This is best possible by considering a disjoint union of $K_{d,d}$. However, this

Eun-Kyung Cho (조은경), Independent domination of graphs with bounded maximum degree

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

The independent domination number of a graph $G$, denoted $i(G)$, is the minimum size of an independent dominating set of $G$. In this talk, we prove a series of results regarding independent domination of graphs with bounded maximum degree. Let $G$ be a graph with maximum degree at most $k$ where $k \ge 1$. We prove that

David Munhá Correia, Rainbow matchings

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

I will discuss various results for rainbow matching problems. In particular, I will introduce a ‘sampling trick’ which can be used to obtain short proofs of old results as well as to solve asymptotically some well known conjectures. This is joint work with Alexey Pokrovskiy and Benny Sudakov.

Tuan Tran, Exponential decay of intersection volume with applications on list-decodability and sphere-covering bounds

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

We give some natural sufficient conditions for balls in a metric space to have small intersection. Roughly speaking, this happens when the metric space is (i) expanding and (ii) well-spread, and (iii) certain random variable on the boundary of a ball has a small tail. As applications, we show that the volume of intersection of

Seunghun Lee (이승훈), Transversals and colorings of simplicial spheres

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Motivated from the surrounding property of a point set in $\mathbb{R}^d$ introduced by Holmsen, Pach and Tverberg, we consider the transversal number and chromatic number of a simplicial sphere. As an attempt to give a lower bound for the maximum transversal ratio of simplicial $d$-spheres, we provide two infinite constructions. The first construction gives infinitely

Andreas Holmsen, Some recent results on geometric transversals

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

A geometric transversal to a family of convex sets in $\mathbb R^d$ is an affine flat that intersects the members of the family. While there exists a far-reaching theory concerning 0-dimensional transversals (intersection patterns of convex sets), much less is known when it comes to higher-dimensional transversals. In this talk, I will present some new

Ron Aharoni, A strong version of the Caccetta-Haggkvist conjecture

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

The Caccetta-Haggkvist conjecture, one of the best known in graph theory, is that in a digraph with $n$ vertices in which all outdegrees are at least $n/k$ there is a directed cycle of length at most $k$. This is known for  large values of $k$, relatively to n, and asymptotically for n large. A few

Jaehyeon Seo (서재현), A rainbow Turán problem for color-critical graphs

Room B232 IBS (기초과학연구원)

For given $k$ graphs $G_1,\dots, G_k$ over a common vertex set of size $n$, what conditions on $G_i$ ensures a 'colorful' copy of $H$, i.e. a copy of $H$ containing at most one edge from each $G_i$? Keevash, Saks, Sudakov, and Verstraëte defined $\operatorname{ex}_k(n,H)$ to be the maximum total number of edges of the graphs

Ken-ichi Kawarabayashi (河原林 健一), Toward Directed Graph Minor Theory

Zoom ID: 934 3222 0374 (ibsdimag)

Graph Minor project by Robertson and Seymour is perhaps the deepest theory in Graph Theory. It gives a deep structural characterization of graphs without any graph $H$ as a minor. It also gives many exciting algorithmic consequences. In this work, I would like to talk about our attempt to extend Graph minor project to directed
