Harmonious Coloring of Uniform Hypergraphs

A harmonious coloring of a k-uniform hypergraph H is a vertex coloring such that no two vertices in the same edge share the same color, and each k-element subset of colors appears on at most one edge. The harmonious number h(H) is the least number of colors needed for such a coloring. We prove that k-uniform hypergraphs of bounded maximum degree ∆ satisfy h(H) = O((k!m)^(1/k)), where m is the number of edges in H which is best possible up to a multiplicative constant. Moreover, for every fixed ∆, this constant tends to 1 with k → ∞. We use a novel method, called entropy compression, that emerged from the algorithmic version of the Lovász Local Lemma due to Moser and Tardos.

Abstract in PolishHarmonijne kolorowanie krawędzi hipergrafu to takie kolorowanie jego wierzchołków, że żadna krawędź nie zawiera dwóch wierzchołków tego samego koloru oraz żadne dwie krawędzie nie mają tego samego zbioru kolorów. W pracy dowodzimy górnego ograniczenia na minimalną liczbę kolorów potrzebną w harmonijnym kolorowaniu hipergrafów jednolitych. Jest on asymptotycznie optymalne. W dowodzie stosujemy technikę kompresji entropii.
