Chong Shangguan (上官冲), On the sparse hypergraph problem of Brown, Erdős and Sós

Zoom ID: 224 221 2686 (ibsecopro)

For fixed integers $r\ge 3, e\ge 3$, and $v\ge r+1$, let $f_r(n,v,e)$ denote the maximum number of edges in an $n$-vertex $r$-uniform hypergraph in which the union of arbitrary $e$ distinct edges contains at least $v+1$ vertices. In 1973, Brown, Erdős and Sós initiated the study of the function $f_r(n,v,e)$ and they proved that $\Omega(n^{\frac{er-v}{e-1}})=f_r(n,v,e)=O(n^{\lceil\frac{er-v}{e-1}\rceil})$.

Chong Shangguan (上官冲), The hat guessing number of graphs

Room B332 IBS (기초과학연구원)

Consider the following hat guessing game: $n$ players are placed on $n$ vertices of a graph, each wearing a hat whose color is arbitrarily chosen from a set of $q$ possible colors. Each player can see the hat colors of his neighbors, but not his own hat color. All of the players are asked to
