Daniel T. Soukup: Uniformization properties and graph edge colourings

BIU Infinite Combinatorics Seminar Speaker: Daniel T. Soukup (KGRC) Date : 11/02/2019 – 13:00 – 15:00 Title : Uniformization properties and graph edge colourings Abstract: Sierpinski’s now classical result states that there is an edge 2-colouring of the complete graph on aleph1 vertices so that there are no uncountable monochromatic subgraphs. continue reading…

Daniel Soukup: New aspects of ladder system uniformization

Talk held by Daniel Soukup (KGRC) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-11-29. Abstract: Given a tree $T$ of height $\omega_1$, we say that a ladder system colouring $(f_\alpha)_{\alpha\in \lim\omega_1}$ has a $T$-uniformization if there is a function $\varphi$ defined on a subtree $S$ of $T$ so that for any $s\in S_\alpha$ of limit height and almost all $\xi\in dom (f_\alpha)$, $\varphi(s\upharpoonright \xi)=f_\alpha(\xi)$. continue reading…
