Redshift in algebraic K-theory

Jeremy Hahn (MIT)

Abstract: I will describe work, joint with Dylan Wilson, about the redshifting properties of algebraic K-theory. I will focus on concrete examples, sketching proofs at the prime 2 that K(ko) has chromatic height 2 and K(tmf) has chromatic height 3.

Acyclic graphs with at least 2L + 1 vertices are L-recognizable

Dara Zirlin (UIUC)

Abstract: The $(n-L)$-deck of an $n$-vertex graph is the multiset of subgraphs obtained from it by deleting $L$ vertices. A family of $n$-vertex graphs is $L$-recognizable if every graph having the same $(n-L)$-deck as a graph in the family is also in the family. We prove that the family of $n$-vertex graphs having no cycles is $L$-recognizable when $n\geq 2L+1$ (except when $(n,L)=(5,2)$). It is already known that this fails when $n=2L$ and when $(n,L)=(5,2)$.

This is joint work with Alexandr V. Kostochka, Mina Nahvi, and Douglas B. West.
