GeomTop Seminar: Colin de Verdiere parameter and representations of graphs

Date: Wednesday, December 11, 2019 13:00 - 14:15
Speaker: Vojtech Kaluza
Location: Mondi Seminar Room 3, Central Building
Series: Mathematics and CS Seminar
Host: Uli Wagner
Contact: WAGNER Hubert

The Colin de Verdiere parameter ?(G) is known to capture some of the
embeddability properties of a graph G: For instance, ?(G) ? 3 if and only if
G is planar and ?(G) ? 4 if and only if G is linkless embeddable. In order
to study topological properties of graphs G with ?(G) > 4, van der Holst and
Pendavingh introduced a parameter ?(G). They showed that ?(G) ? k if and
only if ?(G) ? k for k = 1, 2, 3, 4. In addition, they proved that ?(G) ? ?(G)+2
for every G and conjectured that ?(G) ? ?(G) in general. They also showed
that the two parameters may differ.
In this talk, after an introduction on the parameters ? and ?, I plan to

present a proof of the aforementioned conjecture of van der Holst and Pen-
davingh. This is a joint work with Martin Tancer.
