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

Square principles

Since the birth of Jensen’s original Square principle, many variations of the principle were introduced and intensively studied. Asaf Karagila suggested me today to put some order into all of these principles. Here is a trial. Definition. A square principle … 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
