Odd-cycle transversal in triangle-free graphs ★★

Author(s): Erdos; Faudree; Pach; Spencer

Conjecture   If $ G $ is a simple triangle-free graph, then there is a set of at most $ n^2/25 $ edges whose deletion destroys every odd cycle.

Separators in string graphs ★★

Author(s): Fox; Pach; Tóth

Conjecture   Every string graph with $ m $ edges has a separator of size $ O(\sqrt{m}) $.

Are different notions of the crossing number the same? ★★★

Author(s): Pach; Tóth

Problem   Does the following equality hold for every graph $ G $? \[ \text{pair-cr}(G) = \text{cr}(G) \]

The crossing number $ \text{cr}(G) $ of a graph $ G $ is the minimum number of edge crossings in any drawing of $ G $ in the plane. In the pairwise crossing number $ \text{pair-cr}(G) $, we minimize the number of pairs of edges that cross.

Keywords: crossing number; pair-crossing number
