### Proving Vizing's and Brooks' theorem using the polynomial approach

It is known that the graph polynomial defined by $\prod_{i<j}(x_i-x_j)$ where the vertices $x_k\ \ , \ \ k=\{1,2\ldots,n\}$ are ordered with respect to some order; can be used to verify the proper ...

### Graphs with Hermitian Unitary Edge Weights

Very recently, Hao Huang proved the Sensitivity Conjecture, which had been open for 30 years or so. Huang's proof is surprisingly short and easy. Here is Huang's preprint, a discussion on Scott ...

### Complexity of weighted fractional edge coloring

Given an edge-weighted multigraph $G=(V,E)$ with a positive, rational weight function $(w(e): e \in E)$, the weighted fractional edge coloring problem (WFECP) is to compute ($\min 1^T x$ subject to $...

### Succinct circuits and NEXPTIME-complete problems

I am fascinated by a recent fact I was reading: Succinct Circuits are simple machines used to descibe graphs in exponentially less space, which leads to the downside that solving a problem on that ...

### Representation of Subgraph Counts using Polynomial of Adjacency Matrix

We consider a graph $G$ of size $d$ with adjacency matrix $A$, whose entries take value in $\{0,1\}$. We are interested in the number of a certain connected subgraph $S$ of size $k$ in $G$. For ...

### What is the computationally simplest way to universally index the set of simple graphs?

If given a simple, integer-labeled, but not necessarily connected, graph $G := (V,E)$ consisting of at least one vertex, i.e. $\lvert \rvert V \lvert \rvert \geq 1$, then is there a function to ...

### The complexity on calculation of the Graev metric on the free Boolean group of a metric space

For a set $X$ by $B(X)$ we denote the family of all finite subsets of $X$ endowed with the operation $\oplus$ of symmetric difference. This operation turns $B(X)$ into a Boolean group, which can be ...

### Flat or linkless embeddings of graph with fixed projection

The problem of finding whether a given planar diagram of a graph, with over- and under-crossings, is a linkless embedding or not has unknown complexity (Kawarabayashi et al., 2010). My first question ...

### Is there any solution that currently exists for the graph automorphism problem in the general case?

I was reading the Wikipedia pages on the graph automorphism, but I could not find any solution to the problem (Not even a brute force one). So, is it indeed true that no solutions exist for the ...

### Karp hardness of two cycles which lengths differ by one

Our problem is as follows:
NEARLY-EQUAL-CYCLE-PAIR
Input: An undirected graph $G(V,E)$
Output: YES if there exists $2$ (simple) cycles in $G$ which lengths differ by $1$, otherwise NO
Is ...

### What is the complexity of counting Hamiltonian cycles of a graph?

Since deciding whether a graph contains a Hamiltonian cycle is $NP$-complete, the counting problem which counts the number of such cycles of a graph is $NP$-hard.
Is it also $PP$-hard in the sense ...

### Does the problem of recognizing 3DORG-graphs have polynomial complexity?

A 2DORG is the intersection graph of a finite family of rays directed $\to$ or $\uparrow$ in the plane. Such graphs can be recognized effectively (Felsner et al.). A 3DORG is the intersection graph of ...

### Combinatorial region-halfplane incidence structures

I've seen a bunch of similar MO questions, yet hopefully this is not a complete duplicate.
Consider $n$ halfplanes in $\mathbb{R}^2$ with their borders in general position, that is, no point of $\...
