Decomposing the Complete r-Graph
28th February 2020, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Fry Building, LG.22
(NB: This is a special seminar taking place on a Friday, rather than the usual Tuesday.)
The Graham-Pollak theorem states that to decompose the complete graph K_n
into complete bipartite subgraphs we need at least n−1 of them. What
happens for hypergraphs? In other words, suppose that we wish to decompose
the complete r-graph on n vertices into complete r-partite r-graphs; how
many do we need?
In this talk we will report on recent progress on this problem.
This is joint work with Luka Milicevic and Ta Sheng Tan.
