  • The 1–2–3 Conjecture almost holds for regular graphs
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2020-03-25
    Jakub Przybyło

    The well-known 1–2–3 Conjecture asserts that the edges of every graph without isolated edges can be weighted with 1, 2 and 3 so that adjacent vertices receive distinct weighted degrees. This is open in general, while it is known to be possible from the weight set {1,2,3,4,5}. We show that for regular graphs it is sufficient to use weights 1, 2, 3, 4. Moreover, we prove the conjecture to hold for every

  • On a perfect matching in a random digraph with average out-degree below two
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2020-03-20
    Michal Karoński; Ed Overman; Boris Pittel

    Existence of a perfect matching in a random bipartite digraph with bipartition (V1,V2), |Vi|=n, is studied. The graph is generated in two rounds of random selections of a potential matching partner such that the average number of selections made by each vertex overall is below 2. More precisely, in the first round each vertex chooses a potential mate uniformly at random, and independently of all vertices

    Extending a recent breakthrough of Shitov, we prove that the chromatic number of the tensor product of two graphs can be a constant factor smaller than the minimum chromatic number of the two graphs. More precisely, we prove that there exists an absolute constant δ>0 such that for all c sufficiently large, there exist graphs G and H with chromatic number at least (1+δ)c for which χ(G×H)≤c.

  • 2-factors with k cycles in Hamiltonian graphs

    A well known generalisation of Dirac's theorem states that if a graph G on n≥4k vertices has minimum degree at least n/2 then G contains a 2-factor consisting of exactly k cycles. This is easily seen to be tight in terms of the bound on the minimum degree. However, if one assumes in addition that G is Hamiltonian it has been conjectured that the bound on the minimum degree may be relaxed. This was

    The Erdős–Hajnal Theorem asserts that non-universal graphs, that is, graphs that do not contain an induced copy of some fixed graph H, have homogeneous sets of size significantly larger than one can generally expect to find in a graph. We obtain two results of this flavor in the setting of r-uniform hypergraphs. A theorem of Rödl asserts that if an n-vertex graph is non-universal then it contains an

    A subgraph of an edge-coloured graph is called rainbow if all its edges have distinct colours. Our main result implies that, given any optimal colouring of a sufficiently large complete graph K2n, there exists a decomposition of K2n into isomorphic rainbow spanning trees. This settles conjectures of Brualdi–Hollingsworth (from 1996) and Constantine (from 2002) for large graphs.

    Jarosław Grytczuk; Xuding Zhu

    This paper proves that every planar graph G contains a matching M such that the Alon-Tarsi number of G−M is at most 4. As a consequence, G−M is 4-paintable, and hence G itself is 1-defective 4-paintable. This improves a result of Cushing and Kierstead (2010) [5], who proved that every planar graph is 1-defective 4-choosable.

    For k≥1 and n≥2k, the Kneser graph KG(n,k) has all k-element subsets of an n-element set as vertices; two such subsets are adjacent if they are disjoint. It was first proved by Lovász that the chromatic number of KG(n,k) is n−2k+2. Schrijver constructed a vertex-critical subgraph SG(n,k) of KG(n,k) with the same chromatic number.

The disjointness graph of a family of curves (continuous arcs in the plane) is the graph whose vertices correspond to the curves and in which two vertices are joined by an edge if and only if the corresponding curves are disjoint.

    It is proved that every connected graph G on n vertices with χ(G)≥4 has at most k(k−1)n−3(k−2)(k−3) k-colourings for every k≥4. Equality holds for some (and then for every) k if and only if the graph is formed from K4 by repeatedly adding leaves.

    Let S be an n-element set and F⊂(Sk) an intersecting family. Improving earlier results it is proved that for n>72k there is an element of S that is contained in all but (n−3k−2) members of F. One of the main ingredients of the proof is the following statement. If G⊂(Sk) is intersecting, |G|≥(n−2k−2) and n≥72k then there is an element of S that is contained in more than half of the members of G.

    Given two k-graphs H and F, a perfect F-packing in H is a collection of vertex-disjoint copies of F in H which together cover all the vertices in H. In the case when F is a single edge, a perfect F-packing is simply a perfect matching. For a given fixed F, it is often the case that the decision problem whether an n-vertex k-graph H contains a perfect F-packing is NP-complete. Indeed, if k≥3, the corresponding

    Ahmad Abdi; Gérard Cornuéjols; Natália Guričanová; Dabeen Lee

    The τ=2 Conjecture, the Replication Conjecture and the f-Flowing Conjecture, and the classification of binary matroids with the sums of circuits property are foundational to Clutter Theory and have far-reaching consequences in Combinatorial Optimization, Matroid Theory and Graph Theory. We prove that these conjectures and result can equivalently be formulated in terms of cuboids, which form a special

  • Ranking tournaments with no errors II: Minimax relation
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-10-24
    Xujin Chen; Guoli Ding; Wenan Zang; Qiulan Zhao

    A tournament T=(V,A) is called cycle Mengerian (CM) if it satisfies the minimax relation on packing and covering cycles, for every nonnegative integral weight function defined on A. The purpose of this series of two papers is to show that a tournament is CM iff it contains none of four Möbius ladders as a subgraph; such a tournament is referred to as Möbius-free. In the first paper we have given a

  • k-regular subgraphs near the k-core threshold of a random graph
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-10-14
    Dieter Mitsche; Michael Molloy; Paweł Prałat

    We prove that Gn,p=c/n w.h.p. has a k-regular subgraph if c is at least e−Θ(k) above the threshold for the appearance of a subgraph with minimum degree at least k; i.e. a non-empty k-core. In particular, this pins down the threshold for the appearance of a k-regular subgraph to a window of size e−Θ(k).

  • Matroid fragility and relaxations of circuit hyperplanes
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-09-26
    Jim Geelen; Florian Hoersch

    We relate two conjectures that play a central role in the reported proof of Rota's Conjecture. Let F be a finite field. The first conjecture states that: the branch-width of any F-representable N-fragile matroid is bounded by a function depending only upon F and N. The second conjecture states that: if a matroid M2 is obtained from a matroid M1 by relaxing a circuit-hyperplane and both M1 and M2 are

  • A large number of m-coloured complete infinite subgraphs
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-09-24
    António Girão

    Given an edge colouring of a graph with a set of m colours, we say that the graph is m-coloured if each of the m colours is used. For an m-colouring Δ of N(2), the complete graph on N, we denote by FΔ the set all values γ for which there exists an infinite subset X⊂N such that X(2) is γ-coloured. Properties of this set were first studied by Erickson in 1994. Here, we are interested in estimating the

  • Simple k-planar graphs are simple (k + 1)-quasiplanar
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-09-09
    Patrizio Angelini; Michael A. Bekos; Franz J. Brandenburg; Giordano Da Lozzo; Giuseppe Di Battista; Walter Didimo; Michael Hoffmann; Giuseppe Liotta; Fabrizio Montecchiani; Ignaz Rutter; Csaba D. Tóth

    A simple topological graph is k-quasiplanar (k≥2) if it contains no k pairwise crossing edges, and k-planar if no edge is crossed more than k times. In this paper, we explore the relationship between k-planarity and k-quasiplanarity to show that, for k≥2, every k-planar simple topological graph can be transformed into a (k+1)-quasiplanar simple topological graph.

  • Towards the linear arboricity conjecture
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-09-09
    Asaf Ferber; Jacob Fox; Vishesh Jain

    The linear arboricity of a graph G, denoted by la(G), is the minimum number of edge-disjoint linear forests (i.e. forests in which every connected component is a path) in G whose union covers all the edges of G. A famous conjecture due to Akiyama, Exoo, and Harary from 1981 asserts that la(G)≤⌈(Δ(G)+1)/2⌉, where Δ(G) denotes the maximum degree of G. This conjectured upper bound would be best possible

  • Induced subgraphs of graphs with large chromatic number. VII. Gyárfás' complementation conjecture
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-09-05
    Alex Scott; Paul Seymour

    A class of graphs is χ-bounded if there is a function f such that χ(G)≤f(ω(G)) for every induced subgraph G of every graph in the class, where χ,ω denote the chromatic number and clique number of G respectively. In 1987, Gyárfás conjectured that for every c, if C is a class of graphs such that χ(G)≤ω(G)+c for every induced subgraph G of every graph in the class, then the class of complements of members

  • The (theta, wheel)-free graphs Part II: Structure theorem
    J. Comb. Theory B (IF 0.892) Pub Date : 2019-08-19
    Marko Radovanović; Nicolas Trotignon; Kristina Vušković

    A hole in a graph is a chordless cycle of length at least 4. A theta is a graph formed by three paths between the same pair of distinct vertices so that the union of any two of the paths induces a hole. A wheel is a graph formed by a hole and a node that has at least 3 neighbors in the hole. In this paper we obtain a decomposition theorem for the class of graphs that do not contain an induced subgraph

    Emilie Diot; Marko Radovanović; Nicolas Trotignon; Kristina Vušković

    Truemper configurations are four types of graphs (namely thetas, wheels, prisms and pyramids) that play an important role in the proof of several decomposition theorems for hereditary graph classes. In this paper, we prove two structure theorems: one for graphs with no thetas, wheels and prisms as induced subgraphs, and one for graphs with no thetas, wheels and pyramids as induced subgraphs.
