Serge Vlăduţ : Lattices with exponentially large kissing numbers
(I thank Avi Wigderson for telling me about it.) Serge Vlăduţ just arxived a paper with examples of lattices in such that the kissing number is exponential in . The existence of such a lattice is a very old open … Continue reading
Peter Keevash and Eoin Long: Forbidden vectorvalued intersections
Peter Keevash and Eoin Long arxived some time ago a very nice paper: Forbidden vectorvalued intersections, which settled a problem that was first posed here on the blog. Here is the abstract. We solve a generalised form of a conjecture of Kalai … Continue reading
Peter Keevash: More and Easier Designs!
Peter Keevash just posted on the arxiv a couple of new papers on designs. The first is a rewritten version of his original paper The existence of designs with a much simpler proof. The second paper The existence of designs … Continue reading
