We consider the following problem: for which r is % well characterized by the simplicial decompositions of its members into prime graphs, that is for which 3 is it possible to find a small subset D of  ...  Let % be a class of countable graphs given by a set r of forbidden configurations.  ...  (TX)(%(HX)) has an uncountable base then so does %(TX') (%(HX')), for every X' 1 X with V(X') = V(X).  ...

Towards a Characterization of Universal Categories [article]

J. Nesetril, P. Ossona de Mendez
2016 arXiv   pre-print
The proof of the characterization is based on the sparse--dense dichotomy and its model theoretic equivalent.  ...  In this note we characterize, within the framework of the theory of finite set, those categories of graphs that are algebraic universal in the sense that every concrete category embeds in them.  ...  On sees easily that the class C 1 of all such graphs G i j * ( C 2Ni , a, b) has bounded expansion: for any fixed integer d and any graph H, if the d-th subdivision of H is a subgraph of a graph in C 1  ...

A surprising permanence of old motivations (a not-so-rigid story)

Jaroslav Nešetřil
2009 Discrete Mathematics  
Rather it is a personal statement written for a lifelong friend and collaborator. Still it is an ambition of this article to trace some of the key moments of our development in the past 40 years.  ...  In doing so perhaps some evidence has arisen which otherwise seems to be obscured by the hectic day-to-day academic life. Thus the title. * *  ...  Is then one of the graphs finite? This is formulated in [127] where it is proved that K 1 ,K 2 and K ω are the only maximal antichains of size 1 for the homomorphism order of countable graphs.  ...

The topics include: complexity of subgraph-and homomorphism-problems; model checking problems for first order formulas in special classes; property testing in sparse classes of structures.  ...  Finally we characterize the existence of all restricted dualities in terms of limit objects defined on the homomorphism order of graphs.  ...  (Universality of the homomorphism order) For every countable partial order P there is an embedding of P into (Graph, ≤).  ...

On Low Tree-Depth Decompositions [article]

Jaroslav Nesetril
2014 arXiv   pre-print
In more technical terms we survey some of the properties and applications of low tree depth decomposition of graphs.  ...  The theory of sparse structures usually uses tree like structures as building blocks. In the context of sparse/dense dichotomy this role is played by graphs with bounded tree depth.  ...  More generally, we are interested in the following problem: given a class of graphs C and a connected graph F , find a graph D C (F ) for C (which we shall refer to as a dual of F for C), such that F D  ...

Groups of type FP via graphical small cancellation [article]

Thomas Brown, Ian J Leary
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In contrast to every previous construction of non-finitely presented groups of type FP we do not use Morse theory on cubical complexes; instead we use Gromov's graphical small cancellation theory.  ...  We construct an uncountable family of groups of type FP.  ...  Let Y = Y P be the presentation 2-complex for the small cancellation presentation for H P , and let f : Y → Y be the based cellular map that induces φ : H P → H P on fundamental groups.  ...

Exact and Approximate Pattern Counting in Degenerate Graphs: New Algorithms, Hardness Results, and Complexity Dichotomies [article]

2021 arXiv   pre-print
We study the problems of counting the homomorphisms, counting the copies, and counting the induced copies of a k-vertex graph H in a d-degenerate n-vertex graph G.  ...  Those lower bounds for exact counting are complemented with new algorithms for approximate counting of subgraphs and induced subgraphs in degenerate graphs.  ...  Roth is grateful to Lior Gishboliner for introducing him to pattern counting in degenerate graphs.  ...
