Special Year on Graph Theory and Combinatorial Optimization
Mini-symposium on Triple Systems and their Generalizations
February 28 - March 3, 2000
In 1999, Colbourn
and Rosa published the definitive work "Triple Systems" (Oxford University
Press). Triple systems are the hypergraphs that have been most thoroughly
studied and to which graph theoretical ideas can be extended fruitfully.
They are subject to attack by graph theoretical, geometrical, group theoretical
and universal algebraic methods.
For those involved in any aspect of graph theory such as probabilistic
methods, geometrical approaches, computational problems, etc, triple systems
are a reasonable place to attempt to extend one's results to a tractable
class of hypergraphs.
The purpose of this workshop would be to stimulate graph theorists to
attempt these generalizations.
