报告摘要:

 For a graph $H$ and an integer $k\geq1$, the $k$-color Ramsey number $R_{k}(H)$ is the least integer $N$ such that every $k$-coloring of the edges of the complete graph $K_{N}$ contains a monochromatic copy of $H$. Let $C_{m}$ denote the cycle on $m\geq4$ vertices. For odd cycle, Bondy and Erd\H{o}s in 1973 conjectured that for all $k\geq1$ and $n\geq2$, $R_{k}(C_{2n+1})=n2^{k}+1$.Recently, this conjecture has been verified to be true for all fixed $k$ and all $n$ sufficiently large by Jenssen and Skokan; and false for all fixed $n$ and all $k$ sufficiently large by Day and Johnson. Even cycles behave rather differently in this context. Little is known about the behavior of $R_{k}(C_{2n})$ is general. In this talk we will present our recent results on Ramsey numbers of cycles under Gallai coloring, where a Gallai coloring is a coloring of the edges of a complete graph without rainbow triangles. We also completely determine the Ramsey number of even cycles under Gallai coloring.
