Bounding the chromatic number of graphs with no odd hole ★★★

Author(s): Gyarfas

Conjecture   There exists a fixed function $ f : {\mathbb N} \rightarrow {\mathbb N} $ so that $ \chi(G) \le f(\omega(G)) $ for every graph $ G $ with no odd hole.

The Erdös-Hajnal Conjecture ★★★

Author(s): Erdos; Hajnal

Conjecture   For every fixed graph $ H $, there exists a constant $ \delta(H) $, so that every graph $ G $ without an induced subgraph isomorphic to $ H $ contains either a clique or an independent set of size $ |V(G)|^{\delta(H)} $.
