### Does high min degree and high odd girth imply near bipartiteness?

Say $G$ has odd girth at least $k$ and min degree $2n/k$. There is a classical result by Andrasfai, Erdos, and Sos that says that $G$ is bipartite. (Odd girth is the length of the shortest odd cycle ...

### Bipartite independence number

Consider a balanced bipartite graph $G=(U,V,E)$, i.e., a bipartite graph with $|U|=|V|$. An independent set $I$ of $G$ is balanced if $|I \cap U| = |I \cap V|$.
The bipartite independence number of ...

### Counting matchings in a bipartite matching-covered graph

A graph is called matching-covered if every edge is containd in a perfect matching. (Such graphs are also sometimes called "elementary", e.g. in Chapter 4 of "Matching Theory" by Lovasz & ...

### Searching for equal subsets in a bipartite graph

Let $(U,V)$ be a finite bipartite graph of two parts $U$ and $V$. For any subset $u\subset U$ define the image $Im(u)$ in $V$ consisting of all vertices of $V$ connected to at least one vertex of $u$.

### Good lower bound on matching in bipartite graph

Suppose a bipartite graph $G=(V_1 \cup V_2, E)$ is given, and one is interested in matching vertices $V_1$ to vertices $V_2$. Assume Hall's condition does not hold, so a perfect matching does not ...

### How many extreme maximal cliques are in an n*m 0-1 matrix?

We can use an n*m 0-1 matrix to denote a bipartite graph. Mining maximal bicliques in such matrix is an open problem.
The extreme maximal clique is a special maximal clique. A clique in such matrix ...
