Reflection on the coloring and chromatic numbers

Joint work with Chris Lambie-Hanson. Abstract.  We prove that reflection of the coloring number of graphs is consistent with non-reflection of the chromatic number.  Moreover, it is proved that incompactness for the chromatic number of graphs (with arbitrarily large gaps) … Continue reading

Same Graph, Different Universe

Abstract. May the same graph admit two different chromatic numbers in two different universes? how about infinitely many different values? and can this be achieved without changing the cardinals structure? In this paper, it is proved that in Godel’s constructible … Continue reading

Hedetniemi’s conjecture for uncountable graphs

Abstract. It is proved that in Godel’s constructible universe, for every successor cardinal $\kappa$, there exist graphs $\mathcal G$ and $\mathcal H$ of size and chromatic number $\kappa$, for which the tensor product graph $\mathcal G\times\mathcal H$ is countably chromatic. … Continue reading

Chromatic numbers of graphs – large gaps

Abstract. We say that a graph $G$ is $(\aleph_0,\kappa)$-chromatic if $\text{Chr}(G)=\kappa$, while $\text{Chr}(G’)\le\aleph_0$ for any subgraph $G’$ of $G$ of size $<|G|$. The main result of this paper reads as follows. If  $\square_\lambda+\text{CH}_\lambda$ holds for a given uncountable cardinal $\lambda$, … Continue reading
