### Is every knot unavoidable in the embeddings of some graph?

Is it the case that, for any given knot $K$,
there exists some graph $G$ whose every embedding into $\mathbb{R}^3$
(or into $\mathbb{S}^3$)
contains a cycle that realizes $K$?
I know the ...

### Big binary tree as an induced subgraph

I believe this is true:
Suppose $G$ is a graph. If $G$ has a subdivision of a large binary tree, prove that $G$ has an
induced subgraph which is a subdivision of a large binary tree or the line ...

### Is There a Graph that is Ramsey for $P_{2n}$ but is $C_{2n+1}-$free

Write $F\to G$ to mean that for every two coloring of the edges of $F$, there exists a monochromatic copy of $G$. Nesetril and Rodl proved that for a graph $G$, there exists a graph $F\to G$ with ...

### Distribution of Induced Subgraphs of Extremal Ramsey Graphs

Choose $k$. Let $G = (V,E)$ be a graph on $n = R(k,k)-1$ vertices (that is, $G$ is an extremal example for $R(k,k)$, and $g : E \to \{r, b\}$ be an edge 2-coloring such that there is no monochromatic ...

### A Ramsey-like lower bound?

Does there exist a graph $G$ which cannot be properly vertex-coloured with 3 colours (i.e. $G$ has chromatic number at least 4), such that for every graph $H$, if $H$ contains a triangle but there ...

### Slightly improving bounds on two-color Ramsey numbers by globally pruning edges and counting connected vertices in instances of two-colored complete graphs

The two-color Ramsey number, $R(m, n)$, is the minimum number of vertices, $||V||$, in a complete graph necessary for there to exist a clique of order $m$ or an independent set of order $n$. In terms ...
