Strict colorings of Steiner triple and quadruple systems: a survey

Lorenzo Milazzo, Zsolt Tuza, Vitaly Voloshin
2003 Discrete Mathematics  
The paper surveys problems, results and methods concerning the coloring of Steiner triple and quadruple systems viewed as mixed hypergraphs.  ...  In a D-hypergraph, the lower chromatic number coincides with the (weak) chromatic number [1, 7] and the upper chromatic number trivially equals n.  ...  The parameters D , C and bi refer to these subsets and indicate those with maximum cardinality, called D-stability, C-stability and bi-stability numbers, respectively.  ...
