Graph Limits

Apr 6, 2020 - Apr 9, 2020


The workshop will address both the basic theory and the applications of graph limits, focusing on graphons and graphexes, as well as various applications. In the last few years several beautiful and exciting developments have taken place in this area. It is therefore time to bring together researchers from different fields, including probability theory, combinatorics, statistics and algorithmics.

The workshop will run from Monday morning 09.00 am till Thursday afternoon 17.00 pm

Uniqueness of combinatorial limits
We will present several results concerning combinatorial structures that are determined by finitely many density constraints. First, we will show that such graph limits can have arbitrarily complex structure in a strong sense. We use this result to provide a counterexample to a conjecture of Lovasz that optimal solutions to extremal graph theory problems can be made asymptotically unique by introducing finitely many additional constraints.
At the end of the talk, we focus on limits corresponding to quasirandom combinatorial structures. For graphs, it is well-known that quasirandomness is characterized by the edge density and the density of C_4. An analogous result holds for permutation: a permutation is quasirandom if and only if the density of every 4-pattern is 1/24+o(1). We strengthen the results by showing that a permutation is quasirandom if and only if the sum of the densities of eight specific 4-patterns is 1/3+o(1), and we characterize all sets of 4-patterns with this property.
