An Important Graph

Aditya Potukuchi - Rutgers University

Location:  GSL
Date & time: Wednesday, 26 September 2018 at 12:15PM - 1:15PM

Abstract: I will describe the construction of an explicit (family of) graph(s) due to Alon, which has many interesting and seemingly different extremal properties. Two of these that I will try to talk about are:
  1. Triangle free, but has small non-trivial eigenvalues (I will try to justify what "but" means here).
  2. Gives graph with a small Shannon capacity but a large theta value.
The topics that I will cover are strictly contained in this article: are, of course, interesting open problems related to these (I am not too familiar, but I will provide additional references for them) in case people find this interesting.
