  • Maximum Scattered Linear Sets and Complete Caps in Galois Spaces
    • Authors: Daniele Bartoli; Massimo Giulietti; Giuseppe Marino; Olga Polverino
      Pages: 255 - 278
      Abstract: Explicit constructions of infinite families of scattered F q -linear sets in PG(r-1, q t ) of maximal rank rt/2, for t ≥ 4 even, are provided. When q = 2, these linear sets correspond to complete caps in AG(r,2 t ) fixed by a translation group of size 2rt/2. The doubling construction applied to such caps gives complete caps in AG(r+1, 2 t ) of size 2rt/2+1. For Galois spaces of even dimension greater than 2 and even square order, this solves the long-standing problem of establishing whether the theoretical lower bound for the size of a complete cap is substantially sharp.

  • Intervals of Permutation Class Growth Rates
    • Authors: David Bevan
      Pages: 279 - 303
      Abstract: We prove that the set of growth rates of permutation classes includes an infinite sequence of intervals whose infimum is θ B ≈ 2:35526, and that it also contains every value at least θ B ≈ 2:35698. These results improve on a theorem of Vatter, who determined that there are permutation classes of every growth rate at least λ A ≈ 2:48187. Thus, we also refute his conjecture that the set of growth rates below λ A is nowhere dense. Our proof is based upon an analysis of expansions of real numbers in non-integer bases, the study of which was initiated by Rényi in the 1950s. In particular, we prove two generalisations of a result of Pedicini concerning expansions in which the digits are drawn from sets of allowed values.

  • Local Convergence of Random Graph Colorings
    • Authors: Amin Coja-Oghlan; Charilaos Efthymiou; Nor Jaafari
      Pages: 341 - 380
      Abstract: Let G = G(n, m) be a random graph whose average degree d = 2m/n is below the k-colorability threshold. If we sample a k-coloring σ of G uniformly at random, what can we say about the correlations between the colors assigned to vertices that are far apart' According to a prediction from statistical physics, for average degrees below the so-called condensation threshold dk,cond, the colors assigned to far away vertices are asymptotically independent [Krzakala et al.: Proc. National Academy of Sciences 2007]. We prove this conjecture for k exceeding a certain constant k0. More generally, we investigate the joint distribution of the k-colorings that σ induces locally on the bounded-depth neighborhoods of any fixed number of vertices. In addition, we point out an implication on the reconstruction problem.

  • Connected Tree-Width
    • Authors: Reinhard Diestel; Malte Müller
      Pages: 381 - 398
      Abstract: The connected tree-width of a graph is the minimum width of a tree-decomposition whose parts induce connected subgraphs. Long cycles are examples of graphs that have small tree-width but large connected tree-width. We show that a graph has small connected tree-width if and only if it has small tree-width and contains no long geodesic cycle. We further prove a connected analogue of the duality theorem for tree-width: a finite graph has small connected tree-width if and only if it has no bramble whose connected covers are all large. Both these results are qualitative: the bounds are good but not tight. We show that graphs of connected tree-width k are k-hyperbolic, which is tight, and that graphs of tree-width k whose geodesic cycles all have length at most ℓ are ⌊3/2l(k-1)⌋-hyperbolic. The existence of such a function h(k, ℓ) had been conjectured by Sullivan.

  • Conway Groupoids and Completely Transitive Codes
    • Authors: Nick Gill; Neil I. Gillespie; Jason Semeraro
      Pages: 399 - 442
      Abstract: To each supersimple 2-(n,4,λ) design D one associates a ‘Conway groupoid’, which may be thought of as a natural generalisation of Conway’s Mathieu groupoid M13 which is constructed from P3. We show that Sp2m(2) and 22m. Sp2m(2) naturally occur as Conway groupoids associated to certain designs. It is shown that the incidence matrix associated to one of these designs generates a new family of completely transitive F2-linear codes with minimum distance 4 and covering radius 3, whereas the incidence matrix of the other design gives an alternative construction of a previously known family of completely transitive codes. We also give a new characterization of M13 and prove that, for a fixed λ > 0; there are finitely many Conway groupoids for which the set of morphisms does not contain all elements of the full alternating group.

  • Point-Curve Incidences in the Complex Plane
    • Authors: Adam Sheffer; Endre Szabó; Joshua Zahl
      Pages: 487 - 499
      Abstract: We prove an incidence theorem for points and curves in the complex plane. Given a set of m points in ℝ2 and a set of n curves with k degrees of freedom, Pach and Sharir proved that the number of point-curve incidences is \(O\left( {{m^{\frac{k}{{2k - 1}}}}{n^{\frac{{2k - 2}}{{2k - 1}}}} + m + n} \right)\) . We establish the slightly weaker bound \({O_\varepsilon }\left( {{m^{\frac{k}{{2k - 1}} + \varepsilon }}{n^{\frac{{2k - 2}}{{2k - 1}}}} + m + n} \right)\) on the number of incidences between m points and n (complex) algebraic curves in ℂ2 with k degrees of freedom. We combine tools from algebraic geometry and differential geometry to prove a key technical lemma that controls the number of complex curves that can be contained inside a real hypersurface. This lemma may be of independent interest to other researchers proving incidence theorems over ℂ.

  • More Distinct Distances Under Local Conditions
    • Authors: Jacob Fox; János Pach; Andrew Suk
      Pages: 501 - 509
      Abstract: We establish the following result related to Erdős’s problem on distinct distances. Let V be an n-element planar point set such that any p members of V determine at least \(\left( {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} p \\ 2 \end{array}} \right) - p + 6\) distinct distances. Then V determines at least \(n^{\tfrac{8} {7} - o(1)}\) distinct distances, as n tends to infinity.

  • List Supermodular Coloring with Shorter Lists
    • Authors: Yu Yokoi
      Abstract: In 1995, Galvin proved that a bipartite graph G admits a list edge coloring if every edge is assigned a color list of length Δ(G) the maximum degree of the graph. This result was improved by Borodin, Kostochka and Woodall, who proved that G still admits a list edge coloring if every edge e=st is assigned a list of max{d G (s);d G (t)} colors. Recently, Iwata and Yokoi provided the list supermodular coloring theorem that extends Galvin's result to the setting of Schrijver's supermodular coloring. This paper provides a common generalization of these two extensions of Galvin's result.

  • Edge-Partitioning a Graph into Paths: Beyond the Barát-Thomassen
           Conjecture
    • Authors: Julien Bensmail; Ararat Harutyunyan; Tien-Nam Le; Stéphan Thomasse
      Abstract: In 2006, Barát and Thomassen conjectured that there is a function f such that, for every fixed tree T with t edges, every f(t)-edge-connected graph with its number of edges divisible by t has a partition of its edges into copies of T. This conjecture was recently verified by the current authors and Merker [1]. We here further focus on the path case of the Barát-Thomassen conjecture. Before the aforementioned general proof was announced, several successive steps towards the path case of the conjecture were made, notably by Thomassen [11,12,13], until this particular case was totally solved by Botler, Mota, Oshiro andWakabayashi [2]. Our goal in this paper is to propose an alternative proof of the path case with a weaker hypothesis: Namely, we prove that there is a function f such that every 24-edge-connected graph with minimum degree f(t) has an edge-partition into paths of length t whenever t divides the number of edges. We also show that 24 can be dropped to 4 when the graph is eulerian.

  • Long Cycles have the Edge-Erdős-Pósa Property
    • Authors: Henning Bruhn; Matthias Heinlein; Felix Joos
      Abstract: We prove that the set of long cycles has the edge-Erdős-Pósa property: for every fixed integer ℓ ≥ 3 and every k ∈ ℕ, every graph G either contains k edge-disjoint cycles of length at least ℓ (long cycles) or an edge set X of size O(k2 logk+kℓ) such that G—X does not contain any long cycle. This answers a question of Birmelé, Bondy, and Reed (Combinatorica 27 (2007), 135-145).

  • The Sub-Exponential Transition for the Chromatic Generalized Ramsey
           Numbers
    • Authors: Choongbum Lee; Brandon Tran
      Abstract: A simple graph-product type construction shows that for all natural numbers r≥q, there exists an edge-coloring of the complete graph on 2 r vertices using r colors where the graph consisting of the union of any q color classes has chromatic number 2 q . We show that for each fixed natural number q, if there exists an edge-coloring of the complete graph on n vertices using r colors where the graph consisting of the union of any q color classes has chromatic number at most 2 q − 1, then n must be sub-exponential in r. This answers a question of Conlon, Fox, Lee, and Sudakov.

  • Local Algorithms, Regular Graphs of Large Girth, and Random Regular Graphs
    • Authors: Carlos Hoppen; Nicholas Wormald
      Abstract: We introduce a general class of algorithms and analyse their application to regular graphs of large girth. In particular, we can transfer several results proved for random regular graphs into (deterministic) results about all regular graphs with sufficiently large girth. This reverses the usual direction, which is from the deterministic setting to the random one. In particular, this approach enables, for the first time, the achievement of results equivalent to those obtained on random regular graphs by a powerful class of algorithms which contain prioritised actions. As a result, we obtain new upper or lower bounds on the size of maximum independent sets, minimum dominating sets, maximum k-independent sets, minimum k-dominating sets and maximum k-separated matchings in r-regular graphs with large girth.

  • The Probability of Generating the Symmetric Group
    • Authors: Sean Eberhard; Stefan-Christoph Virchow
      Abstract: We consider the probability p(S n ) that a pair of random permutations generates either the alternating group A n or the symmetric group S n . Dixon (1969) proved that p(S n ) approaches 1 as n→∞ and conjectured that p(S n ) = 1 − 1/n+o(1/n). This conjecture was verified by Babai (1989), using the Classification of Finite Simple Groups. We give an elementary proof of this result; specifically we show that p(S n ) = 1 − 1/n+O(n−2+ε).

  • Infinite Graphic Matroids
    • Authors: Nathan Bowler; Johannes Carmesin; Robin Christian
      Abstract: We introduce a class of infinite graphic matroids that contains all the motivating examples and satisfies an extension of Tutte’s excluded minors characterisation of finite graphic matroids.We prove that its members can be represented by certain ‘graph-like’ topological spaces previously considered by Thomassen and Vella.

  • Castelnuovo-Mumford Regularity of Graphs
    • Authors: Türker Bıyıkoğlu; Yusuf Civan
      Abstract: We present new combinatorial results on the calculation of (Castelnuovo-Mumford) regularity of graphs. We introduce the notion of a prime graph over a field k, which we define to be a connected graph with regk(G − x) < regk(G) for any vertex x ∈ V (G). We then exhibit some structural properties of prime graphs. This enables us to provide upper bounds to the regularity involving the induced matching number im(G). We prove that reg(G) ≤ (Γ(G)+1)im(G) holds for any graph G, where Γ(G)=max{ N G [x]\N G [y] : xy ∈ E(G)} is the maximum privacy degree of G and N G [x] is the closed neighbourhood of x in G. In the case of claw-free graphs, we verify that this bound can be strengthened by showing that reg(G)≤2im(G). By analysing the effect of Lozin transformations on graphs, we narrow the search for prime graphs into graphs having maximum degree at most three. We show that the regularity of such graphs G is bounded above by 2im(G)+1. Moreover, we prove that any non-trivial Lozin operation preserves the primeness of a graph. That enables us to generate many new prime graphs from the existing ones. We prove that the inequality reg(G/e)≤reg(G)≤reg(G/e)+1 holds for the contraction of any edge e of a graph G. This implies that reg(H) ≤ reg(G) whenever H is an edge contraction minor of G. Finally, we show that there exist connected graphs satisfying reg(G)=n and im(G)=k for any two integers n ≥ k ≥ 1. The proof is based on a result of Januszkiewicz and Świa̦tkowski on the existence of Gromov hyperbolic right angled Coxeter groups of arbitrarily large virtual cohomological dimension, accompanied with Lozin operations. In an opposite direction, we show that if G is a 2K2-free prime graph, then reg(G)≤(δ(G)+3)/2, where δ(G) is the minimum degree of G.

  • Simultaneous Linear Discrepancy for Unions of Intervals
    • Authors: Ron Holzman; Nitzan Tur
      Abstract: Lovász proved (see [7]) that given real numbers p1,..., p n , one can round them up or down to integers ϵ1,..., ϵ n , in such a way that the total rounding error over every interval (i.e., sum of consecutive p i ’s) is at most 1-1/n+1. Here we show that the rounding can be done so that for all \(d = 1,...,\left\lfloor {\frac{{n + 1}}{2}} \right\rfloor \) , the total rounding error over every union of d intervals is at most (1- d/n+1) d. This answers a question of Bohman and Holzman [1], who showed that such rounding is possible for each value of d separately.

  • Associahedra Via Spines
    • Authors: Carsten Lange; Vincent Pilaud
      Abstract: An associahedron is a polytope whose vertices correspond to triangulations of a convex polygon and whose edges correspond to flips between them. Using labeled polygons, C. Hohlweg and C. Lange constructed various realizations of the associahedron with relevant properties related to the symmetric group and the permutahedron. We introduce the spine of a triangulation as its dual tree together with a labeling and an orientation. This notion extends the classical understanding of the associahedron via binary trees, introduces a new perspective on C. Hohlweg and C. Lange’s construction closer to J.-L. Loday’s original approach, and sheds light upon the combinatorial and geometric properties of the resulting realizations of the associahedron. It also leads to noteworthy proofs which shorten and simplify previous approaches.
