Erdős–Faber–Lovász conjecture ★★★

Author(s): Erdos; Faber; Lovasz

Conjecture   If $ G $ is a simple graph which is the union of $ k $ pairwise edge-disjoint complete graphs, each of which has $ k $ vertices, then the chromatic number of $ G $ is $ k $.

Keywords: chromatic number

Lovász Path Removal Conjecture ★★

Author(s): Lovasz

Conjecture   There is an integer-valued function $ f(k) $ such that if $ G $ is any $ f(k) $-connected graph and $ x $ and $ y $ are any two vertices of $ G $, then there exists an induced path $ P $ with ends $ x $ and $ y $ such that $ G-V(P) $ is $ k $-connected.


Double-critical graph conjecture ★★

Author(s): Erdos; Lovasz

A connected simple graph $ G $ is called double-critical, if removing any pair of adjacent vertexes lowers the chromatic number by two.

Conjecture   $ K_n $ is the only $ n $-chromatic double-critical graph

Keywords: coloring; complete graph

Exponentially many perfect matchings in cubic graphs ★★★

Author(s): Lovasz; Plummer

Conjecture   There exists a fixed constant $ c $ so that every $ n $-vertex cubic graph without a cut-edge has at least $ e^{cn} $ perfect matchings.

Keywords: cubic; perfect matching

Hamiltonian paths and cycles in vertex transitive graphs ★★★

Author(s): Lovasz

Problem   Does every connected vertex-transitive graph have a Hamiltonian path?

Keywords: cycle; hamiltonian; path; vertex-transitive
