We show that there exist convex bodies of constant width in $\mathbb{E}^n$ with illumination number at least $(\cos(\pi/14)+o(1))^{-n}$, answering a question by G. Kalai. Furthermore, we prove the existence of finite sets of diameter $1$ in $\mathbb{E}^n$ which cannot be covered by $(2/\sqrt{3}+o(1))^{n}$ balls of diameter $1$, improving a result b...

In this paper we make a partial progress on the following conjecture: for every $\mu>0$ and large enough $n$, every Steiner triple system $S$ on at least $(1+\mu)n$ vertices contains every hypertree $T$ on $n$ vertices. We prove that the conjecture holds if $T$ is a perfect $d$-ary hypertree.

Erdős, Hajnal and Szemerédi proved that any subset $G$ of vertices of a shift graph $\text{Sh}_{n}^{k}$ has the property that the independence number of the subgraph induced by $G$ satisfies $\alpha(\text{Sh}_{n}^{k}[G])\geq \left(\frac{1}{2}-\varepsilon\right)|G|$, where $\varepsilon\to 0$ as $k\to \infty$. In this note we prove that for $k=2$ and...

Let $\chi(\mathbb{E}^n)$ denote the chromatic number of the Euclidean space $\mathbb{E}^n$, i.e., the smallest number of colors that can be used to color $\mathbb{E}^n$ so that no two points unit distance apart are of the same color. We present explicit constructions of colorings of $\mathbb{E}^n$ based on sublattice coloring schemes that establish...

In this paper we provide an algorithm that generates a graph with given degree sequence uniformly at random. Provided that , where is the maximal degree and m is the number of edges, the algorithm runs in expected time O(m). Our algorithm significantly improves the previously most efficient uniform sampler, which runs in expected time for the same...

In this paper we study variations of an old result by Müller, Reiterman, and the last author stating that a countable graph has a subgraph with infinite degrees if and only if in any labeling of the vertices (or edges) of this graph by positive integers one can always find an infinite increasing path. We study corresponding questions for simple hyp...

We give an algorithm that generates a uniformly random contingency table with specified marginals, i.e. a matrix with non-negative integer values and specified row and column sums. Such algorithms are useful in statistics and combinatorics. When $\Delta^4< M/5$, where $\Delta$ is the maximum of the row and column sums and $M$ is the sum of all entr...

Suppose a committee consisting of three members has to match $n$ candidates to $n$ different positions. Each member of the committee proposes a matching, however the proposed matchings totally disagree, i.e., every candidate is matched to three different positions according to three committee members. All three committee members are very competitiv...

Let F be a family of n-element sets. In 1995, Axenovich, Fon-Der-Flaass and Kostochka established an upper bound on the size of F that does not contain a Δ-system with q=3 sets. Using the ideas of their proof we extend the results to an arbitrary q.

In this paper we provide an algorithm that generates a graph with given degree sequence uniformly at random. Provided that $\Delta^4=O(m)$, where $\Delta$ is the maximal degree and $m$ is the number of edges,the algorithm runs in expected time $O(m)$. Our algorithm significantly improves the previously most efficient uniform sampler, which runs in...

We study corresponding questions for hypergr...

For each positive integer $n$, the Fibonacci-sum graph $G_n$ on vertices $1,2,\ldots,n$ is defined by two vertices forming an edge if and only if they sum to a Fibonacci number. It is known that each $G_n$ is bipartite, and all Hamiltonian paths in each $G_n$ have been classified. In this paper, it is shown that each $G_n$ has at most one non-trivi...

It is proved that for $k\geq 4$, if the points of $k$-dimensional Euclidean space are coloured in red and blue, then there are either two red points distance one apart or $k+3$ blue collinear points with distance one between any two consecutive points. This result is new for $4\leq k\leq 10$.

It is proved that if the points of the three-dimensional Euclidean space are coloured in red and blue, then there exist either two red points unit distance apart, or six collinear blue points with distance one between any two consecutive points.

The main topic considered is maximizing the number of cycles in a graph with given number of edges. In 2009, Kir\'{a}li conjectured that there is constant $c$ such that any graph with $m$ edges has at most $(1.4)^m$ cycles. In this paper, it is shown that for sufficiently large $m$, a graph with $m$ edges has at most $(1.443)^m$ cycles. For suffici...

In this note we consider a Ramsey type result for partially ordered sets. In particular, we give an alternative short proof of a theorem for a posets with multiple linear extensions recently obtained by Solecki and Zhao.

Let $r(k)$ denote the maximum number of edges in a $k$-uniform intersecting family with covering number $k$. Erd\H{o}s and Lov\'asz proved that $ \lfloor k! (e-1) \rfloor \leq r(k) \leq k^k.$ Frankl, Ota, and Tokushige improved the lower bound to $r(k) \geq \left( k/2 \right)^{k-1}$, and Tuza improved the upper bound to $r(k) \leq (1-e^{-1}+o(1))k^...

It is shown that for $n\geq 141$, among all triangle-free graphs on $n$
vertices, the complete equibipartite graph is the unique triangle-free graph
with the greatest number of cycles.
