On October 8, 2021, Paul Seymour from Princeton University gave an online talk at the Virtual Discrete Math Colloquium on the polynomial 𝜒-boundedness of graph classes. The title of his talk was “Polynomial bounds for chromatic number“.
On December 30, 2020, Paul Seymour from Princeton University was the speaker of the Virtual Discrete Math Colloquium. He presented his recent breakthrough on the Erdős-Hajnal conjecture with Maria Chudnovsky, Alex Scott, and Sophie Spirkl, which in particular proves that the Erdős-Hajnal conjecture holds for the cycle of length 5. The title of his talk was “The Erdős-Hajnal conjecture is true for excluding a five-cycle“.
