Speaker : Dr. Hongchuan Lei (National Chiao Tung University) The Hamilton-Waterloo Problem: the case of odd cycles factors 2012-12-28 (Fri) 10:30 - 11:30 Seminar Room 609, Institute of Mathematics (NTU Campus) The Hamilton-Waterloo problem is a generalization of the well known Oberwolfach problem, which asks for a 2-factorization of the complete graph $K_n$ in which $r$ of its 2-factors are isomorphic to a given 2-factor $R$ and s of its 2-factors are isomorphic to a given 2-factor $S$ with $2(r+s)=n-1$. In this talk I will introduce our recent work on the Hamilton-Waterloo problem when the given 2-factors $R$ and $S$ are consisted of odd cycles.
