Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - TBA
This talk will be accessible to those with knowledge of basic graph theory. The concept of list coloring was introduced independently by Erdös and Vizing in the 1970s. It is a natural generalization of graph coloring with a restricted list of colors for each vertex. Specifically, one seeks to color... read more

Benjamin Reiniger - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Feb 15, 2017 - 12:45pm to 1:45pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 106
The game of Cops and Robbers involves a team of cops trying to catch a single robber on a graph \(G\). The players alternate turns moving along edges of \(G\). The speaker will first survey some of the major theorems and conjectures concerning the cop number of graphs, i.e., the... read more

Marcin Pitera - Institute of Mathematics, Jagiellonian University
Feb 13, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 104
The estimation of risk measures recently gained a lot of attention, partly because of the backtesting issues of Expected Shortfall related to elicitability. In this talk, the speaker will discuss the optimal estimation procedures in terms of bias and relate them to backtesting. The... read more

Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 119
The Erdős-Gallai Theorem states that for \(k\geq 3\) every graph on \(n\) vertices with more than \((k-1)(n-1)/2\) edges contains a cycle of length at least \(k\). Kopylov proved a strengthening of this result for 2-connected graphs with extremal examples \(H_{n,k,t}\) and \(H_{n,k,2}\). ... read more
