Abstract [en]

We consider the problem of extending partial edge colorings of hypercubes. In particular, we obtain an analogue of the positive solution to the famous Evans' conjecture on completing partial Latin squares by proving that every proper partial edge coloring of at most (d-1) edges of the d-dimensional hypercube Qd can be extended to a proper d-edge coloring of Qd. Additionally, we characterize which partial edge colorings of Qd with precisely d precolored edges are extendable to proper d-edge colorings of Qd.

Abstract [en]

These papers are all related to the problem of avoiding and completing an edge precoloring of a graph. In more detail, given a graph G and a partial proper edge precoloring φ of G and a list assignment L for every non-colored edge of G, can we extend the precoloring to a proper edge coloring avoiding any list assignment? In the first paper, G is a d-dimensional hypercube graph Qd, a partial proper edge precoloring φ and every list assignment L must satisfy certain sparsity conditions. The second paper still deals with d-dimensional hypercube graph Qd, but the list assignment L for every edge of Qd is an empty set and φ must be a partial proper edge precoloring of at most (d - 1) edges. For the third paper, G can be seen as a complete 3-uniform 3-partite hypergraph, every list assignment L must satisfy certain sparsity conditions but we do not have a partial proper edge precoloring φ on edges of G.

Abstract [en]

All of my papers are related to the problem of avoiding and completing an edge precoloring of a graph. In more detail, given a graph G and a partial proper edge precoloring φ of G and a list assignment L for every non-colored edge of G, can we extend φ to a proper edge coloring of G which avoids L? 

In Paper I, G is the d-dimensional hypercube graph Qd, a partial proper edge precoloring φ and a list assignment L must satisfy certain sparsity conditions. Paper II still deals with the hypercube graph Qd, but the list assignment L for every edge of Qd is an empty set and φ must be a partial proper edge precoloring of at most d-1 edges. In Paper III, G is a (d,s)-edge colorable graph; that is G has a proper d-edge coloring, where every edge is contained in at least s-1 2-colored 4-cycles, L must satisfy certain sparsity conditions and we do not have a partial proper edge precoloring φ on edges of G. The problem in Paper III is also considered in Paper IV and Paper V, but here G can be seen as the complete 3-uniform 3-partite hypergraph K3n,n,n, where n is a power of two in paper IV and n is an even number in paper V.
