### Where can I find Gonthier's Coq code proving the four color theorem?

In a 2008 article in the Notices, Georges Gonthier announced a computer-checked proof of the four color theorem using Coq: Gonthier, Georges. Formal proofâ€”the four-color theorem. Notices Amer. ...

### Basis of periodic tiling of Wang tile

Given a set of Wang tile, Given 3 periodic tiling: A, B, C We define 3 vector F[A], F[B], F[C] each vector correspond to the appearing frequency of each type of tiles in the tiling. Now, we ...

We know that any closed cycle of a graph could be decomposed into sum of simple cycles. To translate this theorem into tiling of 1D (Wang tile). We know that any 1D periodic tiling could be ...

### Graph theoretical representation of Wang Tile

We note that for one dimensional tiling problem of Wang Tile could be represented by a graph. Each cycle on the graph represents a periodic solution. However, is there a well established counter-part ...

### Natural constructions (not depending on parameters) [closed]

Consider graph clusterings as a prototypical example of (logical) constructions. Let a clustering of a graph $(V,E)$ be any covering of $V$, i.e. a set $C$ with $\bigcup C = V$. I am looking for a ...

### Algorithm for satisfiability of inequalities.

I am looking for an algorithm for checking the satisfiability (with natural values) of a set of inequalities made of variables and natural numbers, for example: $u < v, u \leq z, 3 \leq v$. In ...

### Composite finite-state machines

A finite state machine, FSM, is a box with C input/output channels, and S states, and a fixed map $f : S\times C \to S\times C\cup {0}$. If a state $(c_i,s_j)$ is mapped to the 0 element it means it ...

### Examples of Graphs with Trivial Definable Closure

If I'm giving a lecture on trivial definable closure (as a property of graphs), what is a good example of a graph that I can easily draw to depict the concept of trivial dcl?

### Characterization of infinite paths in graphs

First an introduction. A directed graph we all know what is, and a graph is serial whenever every vertex has a successor. I do not consider the empty graph. A pair $(\mathcal{G},s)$ is called a ...

### Self-defining structures

The relations $R$ in abstract graphs (with genuinely propertyless vertices) cannot be defined because there is nothing the relations can base on: they have to be presupposed. But consider derived ...

### Graph properties: definability and decidability

[This is a side question to Supervenience in mathematics.] There are graph properties that are not FO-definable, but MSO-, TC-, or LFP-definable. There may be other graph properties that are not ...

### Statistics for Second order properties of Random graphs

Hi! Let G(N) be the number of graphs with vertices {1, 2, ..., N} and GN(F) be the number of those of them which satisfy graph property F. There is a beautiful result by Glebskii and Fagin that limit ...

### Which graphs are elementarily equivalent to their own disjoint sums?

In Stefan Geschke's recent question, one of the solutions observed that the graph consisting of a single infinite beaded chain, a $\mathbb{Z}$-chain where each integer is connected to its nearest ...

### Graph properties and infinite FOL sentences

This question is related to this Question. Above questions revealed that even though FOL is not expressive enough to describe properties such as Connectivity, Bipartite etc. It is possible to ...

### Is non-connectedness of graphs first order axiomatizable?

A recent question asked for graph properties that are first order axiomatizable but not finitely axiomatizable. Connectedness was mentioned in the context. Connectedness can be axiomatized in ...

### Monadic Second Order (MSO) logic on graphs

Given a conflict graph $G = (V, E)$, a man has to transport a set $V$ of items/vertices across the river. Two items are connected by an edge in $E$, if they are conflicting and thus cannot be left ...

### What are other theories of causality besides graphical models and Bayesian networks?

I am trying to find some data structures/mathemetical theories to represent causal relationships which differ from graphical models or Bayesian Networks. Any ideas?

### How many groups of size at most n are there? What is the asymptotic growth rate? And what of rings, fields, graphs, partial orders, etc.?

Question. How many (isomorphism types of) finite groups of size at most n are there? What is the asymptotic growth rate? And the same question for rings, fields, graphs, partial orders, etc. ...

### An ubiquitous pattern of questions

There is an ubiquitous pattern of questions concerning assumedly any kind of mathematical object or structure: groups, graphs, numbers, categories, and so on. It goes like this (informally): Can a ...
Given a partial order $R_{\leq}$ over a set $D$, the set of upper bounds under $R$ of a subset $S$ of $D$ is commonly defined as $\{ y \in D | \ \forall x\in S, x R y \}$. (The set of lower bounds of ...
