## MFO workshop in Set Theory, February 2017

I gave an invited talk at the Set Theory workshop in Obwerwolfach, February 2017. Talk Title: Coloring vs. Chromatic. Abstract: In a joint work with Chris Lambie-Hanson, we study the interaction between compactness for the chromatic number (of graphs) and … Continue reading

## 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

## 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

## The chromatic numbers of the Erdos-Hajnal graphs

Recall that a coloring $c:G\rightarrow\kappa$ of an (undirected) graph $(G,E)$ is said to be chromatic if $c(v_1)\neq c(v_2)$ whenever $\{v_1,v_2\}\in E$. Then, the chromatic number of a graph $(G,E)$ is the least cardinal $\kappa$ for which there exists a chromatic … Continue reading
