For integers k>=1 and n>=2k+1, the Kneser graph K(n,k) has as vertices all k-element subsets of an n-element ground set, and an edge between any two disjoint sets. It has been conjectured since the 1970s that all Kneser graphs admit a Hamilton cycle...

A set of positive integers is called a Diophantine tuple if the product of any two distinct elements in the set is one less than a square. There is a long history and extensive literature on the study of Diophantine tuples and their generalizations...

Classical algorithms are defined on inputs of different sizes. In contrast, data-driven algorithms, that is, algorithms learned from some data, may only be defined on inputs of the same size as the data. What does it mean for an algorithm to be...

Derivative-free algorithms seek the minimum of a given function based only on function values queried at appropriate points. Their performance is known to worsen as the problem dimension increases. Recent advances in developing randomized derivative...
