Viktor Zamaraev: On factorial classes of bipartite graphs

1:00pm, E360

This talk is devoted to the problem of characterizing the family of factorial classes of graphs, i.e., hereditary classes in which the number of n-vertex graphs grows as a factorial type function. First, we will discuss the background and motivation of the problem. Then we will consider a special case of characterizing the family of factorial classes of bipartite graphs. We will present a result showing that the class of P7-free bipartite graphs is factorial. The result completes the description of monogenic factorial classes of bipartite graphs. The proof is based on a decomposition scheme of bipartite graphs, which is of independent interest. Finally, we will discuss some open problems.

Based on joint work with Vadim Lozin.

Tom Fisher: On families of n-congruent elliptic curves

2:00pm, CM 219

Elliptic curves E and E' are said to be n-congruent if their
n-torsion subgroups are isomorphic as Galois modules. The elliptic curves
n-congruent to a given elliptic curve are parametrised by (the
non-cuspidal points of) certain twists of the modular curve X(n). I will
discuss methods for computing equations for these curves, and also for the
surfaces that parametrise pairs of n-congruent elliptic curves.
