Jan Hladký, Invitation to graphons

Zoom ID: 224 221 2686 (ibsecopro)

The first course in graph theory usually covers concepts such as matchings, independent sets, colourings, and forbidden subgraphs. Around 2004, Borgs, Chayes, Lovász, Sós, Szegedy, and Vestergombi introduced a very fruitful limit perspective on graphs. The central objects of this theory, so-called graphons, are suitable measurable counterparts to graphs. In the talk, I will outline

Benjamin Bergougnoux, Tight Lower Bounds for Problems Parameterized by Rank-width

Zoom ID: 869 4632 6610 (ibsdimag)

We show that there is no $2^{o(k^2)} n^{O(1)}$ time algorithm for Independent Set on $n$-vertex graphs with rank-width $k$, unless the Exponential Time Hypothesis (ETH) fails. Our lower bound matches the $2^{O(k^2)} n^{O(1)}$ time algorithm given by Bui-Xuan, Telle, and Vatshelle and it answers the open question of Bergougnoux and Kanté . We also show

Robert Hickingbotham, Treewidth, Circle Graphs and Circular Drawings

Zoom ID: 869 4632 6610 (ibsdimag)

A circle graph is an intersection graph of a set of chords of a circle. In this talk, I will describe the unavoidable induced subgraphs of circle graphs with large treewidth. This includes examples that are far from the `usual suspects'. Our results imply that treewidth and Hadwiger number are linearly tied on the class

Daniel Altman, On an arithmetic Sidorenko conjecture, and a question of Alon

Zoom ID: 224 221 2686 (ibsecopro)

Let $G=\mathbb{F}_p^n$. Which systems of linear equations $\Psi$ have the property that amongst all subsets of $G$ of fixed density, random subsets minimise the number of solutions to $\Psi$? This is an arithmetic analogue of a well-known conjecture of Sidorenko in graph theory, which has remained open and of great interest since the 1980s. We

Marcelo Sales, On Pisier type problems

Zoom ID: 224 221 2686 (ibsecopro)

A subset $A\subseteq \mathbb Z$ of integers is free if for every two distinct subsets $B, B'\subseteq A$ we have \Pisier asked if for every subset $A\subseteq \mathbb Z$ of integers the following two statement are equivalent: (i) $A$ is a union of finitely many free sets. (ii) There exists $\epsilon>0$ such that every finite

Paul Seymour, A loglog step towards the Erdős-Hajnal conjecture

Zoom ID: 869 4632 6610 (ibsdimag)

In 1977, Erdős and Hajnal made the conjecture that, for every graph $H$, there exists $c>0$ such that every $H$-free graph $G$ has a clique or stable set of size at least $|G|^c$; and they proved that this is true with $|G|^c$ replaced by $2^{c\sqrt{\log |G|}}$. There has no improvement on this result (for general

Qizhong Lin, Two classical Ramsey-Turán numbers involving triangles

Zoom ID: 224 221 2686 (ibsecopro)

In 1993, Erdős, Hajnal, Simonovits, Sós and Szemerédi proposed to determine the value of Ramsey-Turán density $\rho(3,q)$ for $q\ge3$. Erdős et al. (1993) and Kim, Kim and Liu (2019) proposed two corresponding conjectures. However, we only know four values of this Ramsey-Turán density by Erdős et al. (1993). There is no progress on this classical

Jie Han, Spanning trees in expanders

Zoom ID: 224 221 2686 (ibsecopro)

We consider the spanning tree embedding problem in dense graphs without bipartite holes and sparse graphs. In 2005, Alon, Krivelevich and Sudakov asked for determining the best possible spectral gap forcing an $(n,d,\lambda)$-graph to be $T(n, \Delta)$-universal. In this talk, we introduce our recent work on this conjecture.

Shin-ichiro Seki, On the extension of the Green-Tao theorem to number fields

Zoom ID: 897 6822 0619 (ibsecopro) [04/19 only]

In 2006, Tao established the Gaussian counterpart of the celebrated Green-Tao theorem on arithmetic progressions of primes. In this talk, I will explain the extension of Tao's theorem and the Green-Tao theorem to the case of general number fields. Our combinatorial tool is the relative hypergraph removal lemma by Conlon-Fox-Zhao. I will discuss the difficulties

Szymon Toruńczyk, Flip-width: Cops and Robber on dense graphs

Zoom ID: 869 4632 6610 (ibsdimag)

We define new graph parameters, called flip-width, that generalize treewidth, degeneracy, and generalized coloring numbers for sparse graphs, and clique-width and twin-width for dense graphs. The flip-width parameters are defined using variants of the Cops and Robber game, in which the robber has speed bounded by a fixed constant r∈N∪{∞}, and the cops perform flips
