### Casey Tompkins, Extremal problems for Berge hypergraphs

Given a graph $G$, there are several natural hypergraph families one can define. Among the least restrictive is the family $BG$ of so-called Berge copies of the graph $G$. In this talk, we discuss Turán problems for families $BG$ in $r$-uniform hypergraphs for various graphs $G$. In particular, we are interested in general results in two settings: the case when $r$ is large and $G$ is any graph where this Turán number is shown to be eventually subquadratic, as well…

A well-known Ramsey-type puzzle for children is to prove that among any 6 people either there are 3 who know each other or there are 3 who do not know each other. More generally, a graph $G$ arrows a graph $H$ if for any coloring of the edges of $G$ with two colors, there is a monochromatic copy of $H$. In these terms, the above puzzle claims that the complete $6$-vertex graph $K_6$ arrows the complete $3$-vertex graph $K_3$. We consider sufficient…

A graph or graph property is $\ell$-reconstructible if it is determined by the multiset of all subgraphs obtained by deleting $\ell$ vertices. Apart from the famous Graph Reconstruction Conjecture, Kelly conjectured in 1957 that for each $\ell\in\mathbb N$, there is an integer $n=n(\ell)$ such that every graph with at least $n$ vertices is $\ell$-reconstructible. We show that for each $n\ge7$ and every $n$-vertex graph $G$, the degree list and connectedness of $G$ are $3$-reconstructible, and the threshold $n\geq 7$ is sharp for both properties. We…

For a graph $H$ and an integer $k\ge1$, the $k$-color Ramsey number $R_k(H)$ is the least integer $N$ such that every $k$-coloring of the edges of the complete graph $K_N$ contains a monochromatic copy of $H$. Let $C_m$ denote the cycle on $m\ge4 $ vertices. For odd cycles, Bondy and Erd\H{o}s in 1973 conjectured that for all $k\ge1$ and $n\ge2$, $R_k(C_{2n+1})=n\cdot 2^k+1$. Recently, this conjecture has been verified to be true for all fixed $k$ and all $n$ sufficiently large…

For a graph $H$, its homomorphism density in graphs naturally extends to the space of two-variable symmetric functions $W$ in $L^p$, $p\geq e(H)$, denoted by $t_H(W)$. One may then define corresponding functionals $\|W\|_{H}:=|t_H(W)|^{1/e(H)}$ and $\|W\|_{r(H)}:=t_H(|W|)^{1/e(H)}$ and say that $H$ is (semi-)norming if $\|.\|_{H}$ is a (semi-)norm and that $H$ is weakly norming if $\|.\|_{r(H)}$ is a norm. We obtain some results that contribute to the theory of (weakly) norming graphs. Firstly, we show that 'twisted' blow-ups of cycles, which include…

Given a cardinal $\lambda$, a $\lambda$-packing of a graph $G$ is a family of $\lambda$ many edge-disjoint spanning trees of $G$, and a $\lambda$-covering of $G$ is a family of spanning trees covering $E(G)$.We show that if a graph admits a $\lambda$-packing and a $\lambda$-covering then the graph also admits a decomposition into $\lambda$ many spanning trees. In this talk, we concentrate on the case of $\lambda$ being an infinite cardinal. Moreover, we will provide a new and simple proof for a theorem…

### Sun Kim (김선), Two identities in Ramanujan’s Lost Notebook with Bessel function series

On page 335 in his lost notebook, Ramanujan recorded without proofs two identities involving finite trigonometric sums and doubly infinite series of Bessel functions. We proved each of these identities under three different interpretations for the double series, and showed that they are intimately connected with the classical circle and divisor problems in number theory. Furthermore, we established many analogues and generalizations of them. This is joint work with Bruce C. Berndt and Alexandru Zaharescu.
