Abstract: |
1. A near-factor of a finite simple graph is a matching that saturates all vertices except one. A graph is said to be near-factor-critical if the deletion of any vertex from results in a subgraph that has a near-factor. We prove that a connected graph is near-factor-critical if and only if it has a perfect matching. We also characterize disconnected near-factor-critical graphs.
2. The entropy compression is a new developed and inspiring method. And it was widely discussed by combinatorists. For example, see [6]. In this talk, I will describe the idea behind the method. Also, I will introduce the results obtained by entropy compression and sketch their proofs in [1],[2],[3],[5]. References: [1] V. Dujmovic, G. Joret, J. Kozik, D. R.
