## Algorithmes de partitionnement par comparaison de paires

On cherche à reconstruire une partition d'un ensemble donné en envoyant des paires d'éléments à un oracle qui nous indique s'ils appartiennent à la même partie de la partition. Nous cherchons les algorithmes qui retrouvent la partition en un minimum de questions à l'oracle. Ce problème ...

## Algorithms for the Metric Dimension problem on directed graphs

summary: In graph theory, the Metric Dimension problem is the following: we are looking for a minimum-size set R of vertices, such that for any pair of vertices of the graph, there is a vertex from R whose two distances to the vertices of the pair are distinct. This problem ...

## Complexity of positional games

summary: Positional games are two-player games played on a hypergraph. The players alternate selecting vertices of the hypergraph, and the winning conditions depend solely on the filling of the hyperedges. Tic-tac-toe is a famous example of a positional game, with the rows, columns, and diagonals forming the hyperedges and the ...

## Language-theoretic methods in semigroup theory

Language-theoretic methods in combinatorial group theory go back to the fundamental work by Anisimov in the 1970s. Since then, the area has exploded, including such deep theorems as the Muller-Schupp theorem: a group has context-free word problem if and only if it is virtually free. In this talk, I will ...

## The Domino Snake Problem

summary: Deep within the swamp of undecidability lies the elusive domino snake. This species, first discovered in the 1970s by Myers, was originally introduced as an a priori simpler problem than the now celebrated Domino Problem. In this talk we will take a tour through what is known about this ...

## The fixed-point construction in tilings

summary: Consider a tileset, i.e. a finite set of colors along with some adjacency constraints between them. It defines the set of colorings of the infinite grid that respects these adjacency constraints. Such a coloring is called a tiling. Given a tileset as input, a question naturally arises: does ...

## Lattice properties of acyclic pipe dreams

summary: Pipe dreams were introduced by Bergeron and Billey in order to study Schubert polynomials and encode the algebraic structure of the symmetric group. In particular, with well-chosen parameters, they have the combinatorial structure of the Tamari lattice, a well-known quotient of the weak order on permutations. In this presentation ...

## Séries génératrices et preuves d'intrinsèque ambiguïté

Cet exposé porte sur la connexion entre l'intrinsèque ambiguïté en théorie des langages formels, et les propriétés des séries génératrices des langages associés. Il est bien connu que les langages réguliers ont des séries génératrices rationnelles et que les séries génératrices des langages algébriques non ambigus sont algébriques. Dans ...

## Proper vertex coloring with odd occurrence - Probabilistic approach

summary: In graph theory, a graph coloring is an assignment of colors to elements of a graph subject to certain constraints. A vertex coloring is said to be proper if any pair of two adjacent vertices are assigned distinct colors. For a graph G, the chromatic number χ(G) is ...

## Some results on directed coloring

summary: Proper coloring of undirected graphs lies among the most studied
problems in graph theory. It asks to color vertices while giving
different colors to adjacent ones.

In 1982, Neumann-Lara introduced a generalization of this problem to
directed graphs. When walking in an undirected graph, an undirected edge
between two ...
