Ringel Conjecture, Solved! Congratulations to Richard Montgomery, Alexey Pokrovskiy, and Benny Sudakov
Ringel’s conjecture solved (for sufficiently large n) A couple weeks ago and a few days after I heard an excellent lecture about it by Alexey Pokrovskiy in Oberwolfach, the paper A proof of Ringel’s Conjecture by Richard Montgomery, Alexey Pokrovskiy, … Continue reading
In the community of mamathetitians in a certain country there are mamathetitians in two areas: Anabra (fraction p of the mamathetitians) and Algasis (fraction 1-p of mamathetitians.) There are ten universities with 50 faculty members in each mamathetics department … Continue reading
In this post I advertise my colloquium lecture tomorrow – Thursday 23/1/2020 14:30 – on recent advances in combinatorics, and also mention Wojtek Samotij’s lecture on our combinatorics seminar on The lower tail for triangles in random graphs. Click here … Continue reading
Amazing: Zhengfeng Ji, Anand Natarajan, Thomas Vidick, John Wright, and Henry Yuen proved that MIP* = RE and thus disproved Connes 1976 Embedding Conjecture, and provided a negative answer to Tsirelson’s problem.
A few days ago an historic 160-page paper with a very short title MIP*=RE was uploaded to the arXive by Zhengfeng Ji, Anand Natarajan, Thomas Vidick, John Wright, and Henry Yuen. I am thankful to Dorit Aharonov and Alon Rosen … Continue reading
