Focus Week # 1: Structural Graph Theory

IMPA, January 8 – 14, 2018

First focus week of the Rio Workshop on Extremal and Structural Combinatorics.

Organizer: Bruce Reed

Invited Participants: Maria Chudnovsky, Alex Scott and Paul Seymour

Topics of interest include:  chi-boundedness, the Erdős-Hajnal conjecture, Yannakakis’ clique versus independent set conjecture,  structural properties of minor-closed classes. The typical structure of graphs in a hereditary family (the latter will also be a focus in Week 2).
