A solution to a colouring problem of P. Erdős

Herbert Fleischner, Michael Stiebitz
1992 Discrete Mathematics  
Introduction The purpose of this paper is to prove Theorem 1.1 which provides an affirmative solution to a colouring problem posed by P.  ...  For a given graph G, x(G) is the minimum number of colours needed to colour the vertices of G such that adjacent vertices have distinct colours.  ...

The Erdös-Lovász Tihany conjecture and complete minors

Ken-Ichi Kawarabayashi, Anders Sune Pedersen, Bjarne Toft
2011 Journal of Combinatorics  
In this paper we settle this latter problem for a few small additional values of s and t.  ...  If Hadwiger's Conjecture holds, then this latter problem might be easier to settle than the Erdős-Lovász Tihany Conjecture.  ...  Nevertheless, we expect Problem 3.1 to be very difficult, since a positive solution of Problem 3.1 restricted to 6-chromatic graphs would imply a positive solution to the Double-Critical Graph Conjecture  ...

Embedding graphs into larger graphs: results, methods, and problems [article]

Miklós Simonovits, Endre Szemerédi
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Extremal Graph Theory is a very deep and wide area of modern combinatorics.  ...  Some results discussed here got stronger emphasis, since they are connected to Lov\'asz (and sometimes to us).  ...  We thank above all to József Balogh and András Gyárfás, and also to Zoltán Füredi, János Pach, Jan Hladký, Zoltán L.  ...

On zero-sum turan problems of Bialostocki and Dierker

Y. Caro, Y. Roditty
1992 Journal of the Australian Mathematical Society  
A Z k -colouring of a graph G is a colouring of the edges of G by Z k , the additive group of integers modulo k , avoiding a copy of a given graph H, for which the sum of the values on its edges is 0 (  ...  By the Zero-Sum Turan number, denoted T(n, G, Z k ), k | m , we mean the maximum number of edges in a Z k -colouring of a graph on n vertices that contains no zero-sum (mod k) copy of G .  ...  Acknowledgement We would like to thank the referee for his helpful remarks.

As an answer to this question, I soon published (in the Acta Arithmetica) my first paper based on an Erdős problem.  ...  However, when after a good sleep you awoke next morning your head was full of his problems and ideas, and you were just unable to think about anything else; and in at most two days you were longing again  ...  for the solution of a numbertheoretic problem.  ...

A combinatorial mathematician in Norway: some personal reflections

Helge Tverberg
2001 Discrete Mathematics  
In the paper, I ÿrst try to give some impression of Norwegian contributions to combinatorics in the 20th century. This is followed by some remarks on my own combinatorial experiences.  ...  Later, I was to meet him quite often at conferences. I even checked a solution by David Preiss of one of Erdős' prize problems when we were in Durham, UK, in 1974.  ...  Secondly, he notes that for p ≡ 1 (mod 4) there are solutions of the congru-ence a 2 ≡ −1 (mod p), as follows from the well-known fact-Wilson's theorem-that (p − 1)! ≡ −1 (mod p) for all primes p.  ...

The Erdős–Rothschild problem on edge-colourings with forbidden monochromatic cliques

OLEG PIKHURKO, KATHERINE STADEN, ZELEALEM B. YILMA
2017 Mathematical proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society (Print)  
Our final result is a stability theorem for complete multipartite graphs G, describing the asymptotic structure of such G with F(G; k ) = F(n; k ) · 2 o(n 2) in terms of solutions to the optimisation problem  ...  This problem was first considered by Erdős and Rothschild in 1974, but it has been solved only for a very small number of non-trivial cases.  ...  Erdős and Rothschild also considered the generalisation of the problem, where one forbids a monochromatic graph H (the same for each colour).  ...

Clique Is Hard on Average for Regular Resolution [article]

2020 arXiv   pre-print
We prove that for k ≪√(n) regular resolution requires length n^Ω(k) to establish that an Erdős-Rényi graph with appropriately chosen edge density does not contain a k-clique.  ...  This lower bound is optimal up to the multiplicative constant in the exponent, and also implies unconditional n^Ω(k) lower bounds on running time for several state-of-the-art algorithms for finding maximum  ...  Acknowledgements This work has been a long journey, and different subsets of the authors want to acknowledge fruitful and enlightening discussions with different subsets from the following list of colleagues  ...

Sums and products along sparse graphs [article]

2009 arXiv   pre-print
n^1/2+δ for its sum-product over the integers implies a lower bound of n^1+δ for the original Erdős-Szemerédi problem.  ...  A key element in our proofs is a reduction from the sum-product of a matching to the maximum number of translates of a set of integers into the perfect squares.  ...  This work was initiated while the second and third authors were visiting the Theory Group of Microsoft Research.  ...
