Monday Sessions, December 8, 2003 SESSION M-1 8:15 am 9:30 am Unusual Clinical Trial Designs in the Asthma Clinical Research Network Vern Chinchilli, Penn State College of Medicine Moderator: W. Hans Carter, Jr., Virginia Commonwealth University In response to the national health problem with asthma, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) formed theAsthma Clinical Research Network (ACRN)in 1993.The ACRN was designed to evaluate new and existing therapies for asthma treatment and disseminate the results of these evaluations. The ACRN has initiated 11 multi-center clinical trials and, as of February 2003, successfully completed the first six clinical trials, with the published results having appeared in major medical journals. Three ACRN clinical trials invoked unusual designs that resulted in some nonstandard statistical analyses. A particular design that the ACRN developed, called a paired crossover design, is of great interest. In this design, individuals with a different feature (e.g., genotype AA vs. genotype GG, smokers vs. nonsmokers) are matched according to baseline factors and then randomized as a pair to the same crossover sequence. The statistical analysis of the resultant data from a paired crossover design should not assume that the members of a pair are independent. A repeated measurements analysis is described for this design that accounts for the lack of independence between members of a matched pair. 9:30 am 9:45 am Break SESSION M-2 9:45 am 11 am Unusual and Interesting Applications from Three Decades of Biostatistical Consulting Karl Peace, Georgia Southern University Moderator: Janis Grechko, Pfizer Details of several interesting applications from 30 years of biostatistical consulting will be presented. One application involves using a parallel design instead of a crossover design in a bioequivalence trial of several formulations. This trial also incorporated blinded sample size re-estimation. Two other applications, one of a fixed combination drug for treating allergic rhinitis, and the other of a dose comparison trial in duodenal ulcer, reflect using bivariate plots of two primary response measures to illustrate simultaneously drug dose effects. Another application, also from a dose comparison duodenal ulcer trial, reflects logistical aspects of interim analyses procedures aimed initially at dropping the placebo arm, and later dose discrimination. Other applications will be presented as time permits. This talk is consistent with an original aim of BASS: an opportunity for professionals engaged in drug and or health research to share insight to applications. SESSION M-3 11 am-12:15 pm Expanding the Sphere of Influence of the Consulting Statistician John Andersen, Eli Lilly Moderator: Janis Grechko, Pfizer The role of the statistician in the pharmaceutical industry has traditionally been viewed as rather one-dimensional. Typically, fields of application include discovery, manufacturing, clinical trials, and marketing, but usually this is within the context of standard statistical applications. However, a statisticians skill set can be applied to a wider variety of applications. This presentation will give an overview of some of the possibilities, including decision consulting and portfolio management. 12:15 pm 1:15 pm Lunch SESSION M-4 1:15 pm 2:30 pm Normal Mixture Models for Gene Cluster Identification in Two Dimensional Microarray Data Eric Harvey, Constella Group Viswanathan Ramakrishnan, Virginia Commonwealth University Moderator: Jim Nick, McNeil Consumer Healthcare Microarray data in human genetics involve large numbers of observations and generally present as arrays of light intensity values reflecting the degree of activity of the genes. These measurements are often two dimensional in nature since each is associated with an individual sample (cell line) and gene. The usual hierarchical clustering techniques do not easily adapt to this type of problem. These techniques allow only one dimension of the data to be clustered at a time and lose information due to the collapsing of the data in the opposite dimension. A novel clustering technique based on normal mixture distribution models is presented. This method clusters observations that arise from the same normal distribution and allows the data to be simultaneously clustered in two dimensions. The model is fitted using the Expectation Maximization (EM) algorithm. Posterior probabilities are calculated for each observation belonging to a given cluster. These probabilities allow control over the cluster arrangements, including the use of overlapping clusters. 2:30 pm 2:45 pm Break SESSION M-5 2:45 pm 4:30 pm A Heuristic Approach to the Analysis of Survival Data Gordon Lan, Aventis Moderator: J.P. Hsu, Biopharmaceutical Research Consultants, Inc. A heuristic introduction to survival data analysis Several closely related nonparametric tests for survival data analysis are widely used in medical studies. These can be introduced as linear rank statistics, U-statistics, or weighted Mantel-Haenszel statistics. This pedagogical lecture elucidates the connections among different expressions of a test statistic. We will also discuss the sequential monitoring of survival data and the limitations of the proportional hazards model. This presentation is based on Rank tests for survival analysis, Lan, G and Wittes, J., Biometrics 1985 and Martingales without tears, Lan G and Lachin, J., Lifetime Data Analysis 1995. Tuesday Sessions, December 9, 2003 SESSION T-1 8:15 am 9:30 am Phase II III Combination Design to Accelerate Drug Development Qing Liu, Johnson Johnson Moderator: Jim Nick, McNeil Consumer Healthcare For late stage clinical development, we propose combining phase II and III trials via a two-stage adaptive design. In the phase II stage, short-term safety and efficacy are examined. Upon receiving the phase II data, promising doses are selected for further evaluation. In addition, the required sample size and method of analysis are also determined. In the phase III stage, patients, including those enrolled in the phase II stage, are evaluated using a clinical endpoint requiring a longer follow-up. At the end of the trial, data for the clinical endpoint from patients enrolled in both stages are integrated for the final analysis. A noticeable feature is that the decision rule governing dose selection, sample size calculation, and method of analysis does not need to be specified in advance to maintain the validity of the trial. The approach is effective in achieving the ultimate trial success and is also efficient, as fewer patients are needed. In addition, the total development time and costs associated with running separate phase II and III trials are reduced. 9:30 am 9:45 am Break SESSION T-2 9:45 am 11 am New Developments in Population Based Survival Kathy Cronin and Ram Tiwari, National Cancer Institute Moderator: W. Hans Carter, Jr., Virginia Commonwealth University Survival estimates derived from population-based cancer registries are more applicable to the population as a whole than those derived in a clinical trial setting, but they also present some unique challenges. Special issues related to population data, such as the use of relative survival as an estimate of cause-specific survival, will be covered as background. The focus of the talk will be two survival measures of interest. The first is an estimate of survival for patients currently diagnosed with cancer. A number of approaches to address this question will be described and evaluated, including period survival proposed by Brenner and Hakulinen [Am J Epidemiol 2002;156:566-577] and modeling of relative survival trends. The second is the use of cure models to estimate the fraction of cancer patients in a defined cohort that are at risk of dying from their cancer. Difficulties in modeling and interpreting a cure parameter in mixture survival models will be discussed and demonstrated with examples from cancer registry data. SESSION T-3 11 am 12:15 pm Nonparametric Analysis of Covariance and Its Role in Non-Inferiority Clinical Trials Gary Koch, University of North Carolina Catherine Tangen, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Moderator: Tony Segreti, GlaxoSmithKline This presentation discusses the role of nonparametric analysis of covariance in clinical trials to compare test treatment (T), reference control (R), and placebo (P). In these trials, non-inferiority of test treatment to reference control can often be evaluated through whether the lower limit of a confidence interval for (TP) (RP) exceeds K or through a one-sided statistical test for H0:(TP)K(RP) versus HA:(TP) K(RP). Here, K is a pre-specified fraction of the effect of R (relative to P) for the effect of T (relative to P) to have in order to demonstrate non-inferiority; and 0.5K1.0 usually. A further consideration for these trials is that both (TP) and (RP) should significantly exceed 0 in order to support useful estimation of (TP) (RP). Nonparametric covariance analysis strengthens the analysis of these types of clinical trials by providing more precise estimates for linear combinations of (TP) and (RP) than an unadjusted analysis, particularly when covariables are strongly correlated with response variables. It also clarifies interpretation by removing the influence of random imbalances in the covariables. A further advantage is that it requires essentially no assumptions in studies with randomized assignment of treatments. The application of nonparametric analysis of covariance is illustrated for clinical trials for which non-inferiority of T relative to R was of interest. For each of the examples, nonparametric covariance adjustment provided substantial variance reduction and narrower confidence intervals. This presentation is based on the article entitled Non-Parametric Analysis of Covariance and Its Role in Non-Inferiority Clinical Trials by Koch, GG and Tangen, CM, Drug Information Journal 33, pp. 1145-1159, 1999. 12:15 pm 1:15 pm Lunch SESSION T-4 1:15 pm 2:30 pm Some Statistical Strategies for Analyzing Confirmatory Studies Involving One or More Occurrences of One or More Types of Primary Endpoints Gary Koch, University of North Carolina Moderator: Tony Segreti, GlaxoSmithKline This presentation discusses some statistical strategies for analyzing confirmatory studies where patients can have one or more occurrences of one or more types of unfavorable (or favorable) events. Principal attention is given to methods for counts of a recurrent event during inter-visit intervals that comprise an entire follow-up period. Some comments are also provided for situations with multivariate times to event for subsets of the components of a composite time to first event. A major issue for confirmatory studies of this type is how to rank the patterns of events. A second issue is the management of missing data, particularly when patients can withdraw prematurely because of lack of efficacy or a terminating event such as death. Both nonparametric methods and regression models fitted with generalized estimating equations (GEE) are useful for comparisons between treatments for the extent of one or more events for a primary response variable. Results from such methods are illustrated for two principal examples. One is a pair of confirmatory randomized clinical trials for comparing two treatments with respect to skeletal complications in patients with metastatic bone disease. The other is an epidemiologic study concerning the association of lower respiratory illnesses in children during the first year of life with passive smoking in the home. Tuesday Evening Keynote Address 7 pm 8 pm Dilemmas In Monitoring Clinical Trials Nancy Geller, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Moderator: Karl Peace, Georgia Southern University Including statistical stopping rules for the primary and other endpoints of a clinical trial and giving guidance for monitoring toxicity in the trial protocol does not preclude the trial's Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) from considering decisions about the continuation of a trial based on other factors. In the case of a complex trial which appears to be negative and whose outcome might affect a sizable population, the decision to stop or continue becomes quite complex. The DSMB has to weigh protection of trial subjects against the potential of disbelief of the results by the community if the trial stops too early. Examples of protocol guidance and DSMB discussions and action will be given from clinical trials sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. 8 pm 9 pm Reception Wednesday Sessions, December 10, 2003 SESSION W-1 8:00 am 12:15 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) Robert Temple, Robert ONeill, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Karen Midthun, Susan Ellenberg, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research This years special FDA session at BASS X will feature key leaders from both the clinical and biostatistical areas representing the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER). This combined session emphasizes the vital importance of: Close collaboration between medical and biostatistical personnel FDAs active participation in clinical development and improvements to the development process This session will include presentations by Robert Temple, Associate Director for Medical Policy and Robert ONeill, Director of the Office of Biostatistics, both representing CDER as well as Karen Midthun, Director of the Office of Vaccine Research and Review and Susan Ellenberg, Director of the Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, both representing CBER. Topics include: Advances in drug development regulation over the last 10 years, including issues such as ICH guidances, globalization of development, risk assessment and management, multi-national trials, large outcome trials, and circumstances when a single study may be sufficient, etc. Looking to the future the next 10 years Insights into the development of vaccines useful in the prevention of SARS, West Nile virus, and HIV infection Developments in cutting edge therapy areas such as cellular and gene therapies Dealing with the threat of bioterrorism Other topics of importance to pharmaceutical research and development personnel, particularly biostatisticians. Following the presentations, the speakers will serve as a discussion panel and field questions from BASS X participants. SHORT COURSES, DECEMBER 10 - 12, 2003 Wednesday, December 10 1:15 pm 4:30 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) This course concludes on Thursday,December 11 8:15 am - 11:30 am (Includes a 15 minute break) Fundamentals of Data Monitoring Dave DeMets, University of Wisconsin - Madison Nearly all trials, especially Phase III trials, must have a monitoring plan. Those with a mortality or serious morbidity outcome must have an independent data monitoring committee. In this the first session of this course, the history, rationale and scope of responsibilities of a Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) will be reviewed. In addition, the process of appointing a DMC and the DMC meeting format will be discussed. The decision-making process to continue, modify or terminate a trial is complex and involves, among other issues, statistical issues that must be carefully addressed. Examples will be provided from completed trials. In the second session, interim data in an abbreviated format will be presented for a mock DMC to review and discuss before making a recommendation. Results of the trial DMC deliberation will then be revealed. If appropriate, the next interim analysis will be presented. Examples are selected to illustrate various types of decisions. Wednesday, December 10 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) This course continues on Thursday, December 11 8:15 am - 11:30 am (Includes a 15 minute break) and 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) This course concludes on Friday, December 12 8:15 am - 11:30 am (Includes a 15 minute break) A Second Course on Repeated Measures Analysis James Rochon, Duke Clinical Research Institute This course is designed to update knowledge and skills for analyzing longitudinal data in biomedical research. It is intended for Master's and Ph.D. statisticians with a good statistical background and some experience in analyzing longitudinal data using PROC MIXED and PROC GENMOD. We will consider advances that have arisen over the past 10 years, including random-coefficient and mixed-effects models, recent developments with the GEE model, and missing data issues. We will concentrate on ideas and concepts rather than mathematical derivations and proofs. By the end of the course, students should be able to apply these models in their day-to-day research. Key words: Adaptive design; Conditional error function; Conditional power; Confidence intervals; Interim analysis; Type I error rate; Unbiased estimator. Wednesday, December 10 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) This course continues on Thursday, December 11 8:15 am - 11:30 am (Includes a 15 minute break) and 1:15 pm 4:30 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) This course concludes on Friday, December 12 8:15 am - 11:30 am (Includes a 15 minute break) Categorical Data Analysis Gary Koch, University of North Carolina This course presents the conceptual background and computational procedures for statistical methods for categorical data analysis. Attention is given to two complementary strategies: 1) nonparametric (randomization) methods (e.g., Mantel-Haenszel tests) for testing hypotheses of no association under minimal assumptions; 2) regression methods for fitting statistical models to describe multivariate relationships (e.g., logistic regression, Poisson regression, weighted least squares regression, conditional logistic regression, generalized estimating equations). Consideration of these strategies is motivated through examples from clinical trials, observational studies, and sample surveys. For these examples, the roles for alternative methods and aspects of application are discussed from the perspective of the questions which statistical analyses are to address, the posture of inference, the sampling process, and the data structure. The specific topics for the course are as follows: logistic regression; Mantel-Haenszel procedures for sets of 2x2 contingency tables; proportional odds model extension of logistic regression for ordinal data; extensions of Mantel-Haenszel procedures for stratified ordinal data; weighted least squares methods for ordinal data; Poisson (incidence density) regression methods for categorized times to event; methods for studies with repeated measures and or matching including generalized estimating equations and conditional logistic regression; computing procedures for implementing methods. Wednesday, December 10 1:15 pm 4:30 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) This course continues on Thursday, December 11 8:15 am - 11:30 am (Includes a 15 minute break) and 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm (Includes a 15 minute break) This course concludes on Friday, December 12 8:15 am - 11:30 AM (Includes a 15 minute break) Group-Sequential Monitoring of Clinical Trials Michael Proschan, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute This short course provides a unified treatment of group sequential monitoring of many different types of trials (continuous outcome, dichotomous outcome, survival outcome, etc.) using the B-value approach. Different boundaries will be put in their historical perspective, and their underlying ideas will be explained. Conditional power and stochastic curtailment are also covered. Fully Bayesian methods will be discussed, as well as a Bayesian version of conditional power known as predictive power. Estimation and p-values following group sequential monitoring are also considered.

Statistical Modelling - Model Building and Evaluation
Euroworkshop. Schlo Hhenried, Bernried, near Munich Germany; 31 October -- 3 November 2002.
Euroworkshop on Statistical Modelling - Model Buildin and Evaluation Euroworkshop on Statistical Modelling - Model Building and Evaluation 31st October to 3rd November, 2002 Schlo Hhenried, Bernried, near Munich Germany http: www.stat.uni-muenchen.de euroworkshop 2002.html Report General Information: The Euroworkshop on Statistical Modelling was a project fundeded by the European Commission ( CORDIS ) in the programme High Level Scientific Conferences . The project was also connected to the International Workshop on Statistical Modelling . The workshop on Model Building and Evaluation was the third event in a series of three workshops with the topics Mixed Models and Nonparametric Models . To read more about the entire project please follow this link . Coordinator of the project was Gran Kauermann . The event was also supported by the Sonderforschungsbereich 386 at the Institute of Statistics, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. Topic: Generally speaking, every model is plausible as long as it is not falsified. The falsification of models however is the most challenging point in science. This holds in the same for statistical models. To provide valid Statistical Models that fulfil the task of modelling reality, it is of fundamental importance to consider the model building process in more depth and to check and validate fitted models by means of model diagnostics . The workshop intended to consider our "modelling toolbox" critically, rather than considering one particular model critically. This included areas like "Traditional Model Diagnostic Tools", "Graphical Model Diagnostics", "Model validation using smoothing techniques", "Bayesian Models and their validation" as well as "Bootstrapping and its role in model evaluation". Model validation does not only mean to check one particular model at hand (like a typical testing procedure), but also, if not more importantly, to check whether the entire model class being applied is valid. In short the focus was on the question: "Are we modelling the right things with our model and how can we validate and evaluate this" Keynote Speakers : Anthony Davison , Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Switzerland Arnoldo Frigessi , Norwegian Computing Center, Norway Jeffrey Hart , Texas AM University, USA Brian Ripley , University of Oxford, UK Antony Unwin , University of Augsburg, Germany Location: The workshop took place in Schlo Hhenried , Bernried near Munich, Germany.

By the time the conference ended, some 340 delegates from around the World had been involved in presentations, panel sessions and discussions with a good number of the economists and statisticians who lead the world thinking in this area. The conference was a great success, in both the quality of the programme, and the organisation of each day. Len Cook, the National Statistician, said: "I have been to many statistical conferences, and this was one of the best organised, and relevant in content that I have attended". The programme committee, chaired by Tim Holt, managed to bring in leading contributors from North America and Europe, and as far as the Antipodes. There was an excellent mix of delegates, many from the United States, and strong contingents from Asia and Africa. After the conference, both ONS and the Department for International Development, DfID, organised workshops on leadership in statistics and in capacity building for senior statistical office staff.

Developments and Challenges in Bump Hunting, Mixtures and Measurement-error Models

Workshop on Developments and Challenges in Mixture Models, Bump Hunting and Measurement Error Models Workshop on Developments and Challenges in Mixture Models, Bump Hunting and Measurement Error Models Home Invited Speakers Committees Program Schedule Contributed Talk Poster Session Photos Feedback Location Links Accommodations Travel Discounts June 2 to 4, 2002 Dively Center, Case Western Reserve University Cleveland, Ohio Bumps, components, clusters and atypical structures from real data often lead to scientific discoveries or reveal interesting phenomena of a population. They are important in astronomy, biology, data mining, bioinformatics and in applications to virtually all natural and social sciences. The wide interest in such structures has in the last decade led to significant developments in each of these areas: mixture models for component hunting; nonparametric methods for bump or mode hunting; methods for cluster and structure hunting; and Bayesian computational methods for model selection and latent variable mixture models. Additionally, data often come with measurement errors or incomplete information. These problems add additional challenges to component, bump and cluster hunting and lead to another area of active research. Image sharpening can be also considered as an inferential problem involving measurement error models. This special international workshop brings together scientists from different camps but all working towards a common theme: knowledge hunting from real data in scientific problems involving bumps, components, clusters and other related topics. We'll exchange new ideas and discuss challenges.

Many studies attempt to relate firing patterns of individual neurons in particular regions of the brain to characteristics of a stimulus or behavior, thereby inferring function. A major relatively new direction for the field involves the use of multielectrode recording, in which responses from dozens of neurons are recorded simultaneously. Important analysis issues include the precise temporal response of the neurons with respect to a stimulus, a behavior, or each other; neuronal variability, across ensembles and across trials; the additional information provided by multiple neurons; and the timing and dynamics of multiple neuronal responses. In this workshop we are bringing together a small number of neurophysiologists, statisticians, and computer scientists who are interested in quantitative analysis of neuronal data. The chief goal is to identify specific, important problems in neuronal data analysis where neurophysiologists and statisticians computer scientists can collaborate usefully. We plan to have several presentations, and plenty of time for informal discussion. The workshop has space, and some residual funding, for additional participants.

The 8th of these meetings will be held in March, 2001 in Lneburg in Germany. The purpose of the meetings is to bring together climatologists and statisticians, to exchange concepts and problems. Climatologists present statistical problems in climatology (including meteorology and related fields) and consider the methods that are currently used to deal with these problems. Also, techniques tailored by climatologists for the specific needs of climatology are presented. Statisticians, on the other hand, present new, state-of-the art techniques developed within mathematical statistics and other scientific fields. By discussing the needs of climatology and the possibilities offered by modern statistics, synergetic effects are obtained, advancing the methodical basis of climatology and helping statistics to focus on relevant problems. The present meeting is organized into five sessions, each dealing with a challenge that climatology is presently facing: Stochastic climate models, Extreme value analysis, Statistics, models and data assimilation, Simulation models, Decision making. Contributions unrelated to these chosen topics are welcome as well.

Statistical Approaches to the Ocean Circulation Inverse Problem
IMS Mini-Meeting. Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida, USA; 13--14 November 2001.
Statistical Approaches to the Ocean Circulation Inverse Problem IMS Mini-Meeting Statistical Approaches to the Ocean Circulation Inverse Problem November 13-14, 2001 Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida This mini-meeting is designed to foster interaction between statisticians and oceanographers with a common interest in inverse problem methods. Oceanography has evolved very quickly over the past decade with the increasing realization of the ocean's importance to climate around the globe, the implementation of large field experiments such as the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, and with the development of new technologies to measure temperature, movement, and other quantities in the ocean from space with satellites. A major effort is being made to integrate diverse observations and analyze larger datasets; these efforts are challenging because of the basic complexity of the ocean and climate system. Variability exists at the longest and shortest space and time scales, and little is presently known about the spatial and temporal coherence of ocean circulation. Furthermore, despite the observational efforts, datasets are typically sparse, and methods of analysis typically must incorporate dynamical information about the circulation in order to proceed. Studies of the basic statistical variability, mapping, estimation, and more sophisticated forward and inverse modeling techniques are being developed and used in the oceanography community to determine circulation. On the other hand, a large variety of inferential methods for the study of indirect or sparsely measured phenomena, including Bayesian techniques and nonparametric smoothing for spatio-temporal data, have been developed by statisticians in recent years. A 1994 National Research Council panel ( Statistics and Physical Oceanography ) encouraged collaboration between statisticians and oceanographers in a number of areas, including inverse problem methods. So the time is ripe for a fruitful interaction between the oceanographic and statistics communities to discuss this topic. Invited Speakers Discussants Carl Wunsch (MIT, cwunsch@pond.mit.edu) Paul Switzer (Stanford, ps@stat.stanford.edu) Keith Haines (Edinburgh, kh@met.ed.ac.uk) Grace Wahba (Madison, wahba@stat.wisc.edu) Armin Koehl (Scripps, akoehl@ucsd.edu) Chris Wikle (Missouri, wikle@ss1.stat.missouri.edu) Susan Lozier (Duke, s.lozier@duke.edu) Michael Lavine (Duke, michael@stat.duke.edu) Francois-Xavier Le-Dimet (Grenoble, Francois-Xavier.Le-Dimet@imag.fr) Organizers Ian McKeague (FSU) Kevin Speer (FSU) The meeting had an informal workshop flavor, open to anyone interested in attending. There was no registration fee. A poster session was organized for all presentations other than invited talks. We originally intended that a record of the invited talks would be made available through this web page, but speakers were reluctant to send summaries of their talks after the meeting, so that idea fell by the wayside. However, e-mail addresses are provided above, and we encourage anyone interested to ask the speakers for further information about their talks. Persons interested in attending or in presenting a poster were asked to notify: Pam McGhee Department of Statistics Florida State University Tallahassee, FL 32306-4330 e-mail: mcghee@stat.fsu.edu Program TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13: 8:30 a.m. - Pick-up time for rides to Dirac Science Library from Holiday Inn and Doubletree hotels 8:40 a.m. - Refreshments 9:00 a.m. - Welcome 9:15 a.m. - Carl Wunsch Statistical Issues Raised by Ocean Data Assimilation, and other Stories Discussant: Paul Switzer 10:30 a.m. - Break 11:00 a.m. - Grace Wahba Covariance Modeling for Atmospheric and Ocean Data Assimilation Discussant: Paul Switzer 12:15 p.m. - Lunch 2:00 p.m. - Keith Haines Diagnostics of Thermodynamic Bias in Ocean Data Assimilation Discussant: Chris Wikle 2:45 p.m. - Armin Koehl Discussant: Michael Lavine 3:30 p.m. - Break 4:00 p.m. Poster session WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14: 8:30 a.m. - Pick-up time for rides to Dirac Science Library from Holiday Inn and Doubletree hotels 8:40 a.m. - Refreshments 9:00 a.m. - Chris Wikle Bayesian Hierarchical Modeling of Air-Sea Interaction Discussant: Keith Haines 9:45 a.m. - Susan Lozier and Michael Lavine Discussant: Armin Koehl 10:45 a.m. - Break 11:15 a.m. - Francois-Xavier Le Dimet Errors and Data Assimilation Discussant: Grace Wahba 12:00 a.m. - Open discussion All talks and the poster session took place in the Seminar Room on the 4th floor of Dirac Science Library.

Presentation Summer School Advanced Computational Methods for Statistical Inference Ecole d'Ete Mthodes de Monte-Carlo pour l'infrence Statistique CIRM, Luminy, 17-21 September 2001 Organizers Organisateurs E. MOULINES, C.P. ROBERT Ecole parraine par le groupe Modlisation Alatoire et Statistique The summer school is funded by the European Union's TMR network "Statistical and Computational Methods for the Analysis of Spatial Data. ERB-FMRX-CT96-0096" The purpose of this 5 days summer school (September 17-21, 2001), is to bring together senior researchers on the topic of recent advances in computational methods, with applications to complex statistical problems, like those encountered in econometrics, signal processing and finance, and to introduce Ph.D. students and junior researchers to these methods. The school will be organised in order to meet these two requirements, with courses held in the mornings, advanced talks in the afternoon and round-tables in the evenings. In fact, new methods are currently appearing in the field of computational Statistics which go beyond standard MCMC algorithms, taking advantage of earlier works on importance sampling (auxiliary variables, stratified sampling) and particle systems, the later being mainly studied in probability theory and statistical physics so far. Different simulation methods have also been devised for the analysis of continuous-time stochastic processes, in particular in connection with stochastic differential equations. The applications of these methods in various fields are also undergoing a rapid growth: see for instance the use of particle filters in target tracking and image analysis, advanced signal processing, quantitative finance and econometrics.

CIRET Conferences News Conferences IDC JBCMA Membership User Organisation Contact Login ciret conferences CIRET Conferences The networking-basis are the international conferences that are held every other year. They last four days and provide interested researchers (including CIRET members) with the opportunity to present and discuss their latest research activities mainly within specially selected groups. The biennial conference is the meeting place for top scientists from all over the world and successfully integrates the theoretical aspects as well as the perspectives of those who are primarily engaged in applying survey data. The goal is to develop consistent and applicable explanatory patterns for cyclical fluctuations and to overcome the divergence of empirical, theoretical and policy activities. The conferences are held in one of the Member countries. They are organized in cooperation with so called local organizers. The focus program puts priority on a topical problem in conducting economic surveys. The Conference is not only a meeting point for experts, but also establishes a forum for researchers who start working in the field of socio-economic surveys. The Conference papers are available for CIRET members as well as authors and participants of the respective Conference in the USER area . For past Conferences up to the 25th CIRET Conference in Paris in 2000, selected papers were published in the Conference proceedings volume (see CIRET Publications) Starting with the 26th CIRET Conference in Taipei in 2002, authors are kindly invited to submit a ready-to-publish version of their paper to the joint OECD and CIRET Journal of Business Cycle Measurement and Analysis (JBCMA). Submissions accepted by the Editor-in-Chief are sent to two referees (double blind procedure).

Software for Flexible Bayesian Modelling by Radford Neal
Supports Bayesian regression and classification based on neural networks, Gaussian processes and mixture models using a variety of Markov chain sampling methods.
Software for Flexible Bayesian Modeling and Markov Chain Sampling Software for Flexible Bayesian Modeling and Markov Chain Sampling This software supports Bayesian regression and classification models based on neural networks and Gaussian processes, and Bayesian density estimation and clustering using mixture models and Dirichlet diffusion trees. It also supports a variety of Markov chain sampling methods, which may be applied to distributions specified by simple formulas, including simple Bayesian models defined by formulas for the prior and likelihood. Before trying to use the software, you may need to read various references that describe the models and the Markov chain methods used. The software is written in ANSI C for Unix and Linux systems. Some of the programs in this package are designed for use with the xgraph plot package for X-Windows, though the data can instead be plotted by whatever plot program you have available. Current release of 2004-11-10: Index to documentation in hypertext form Compressed tar archive of everything (1.4 Megabytes) Uncompressed tar archive of everything (4.0 Megabytes) The tar archives include the complete hypertext documentation, so that you can set it up to be read from your local machine. The documentation is also readable the old-fashioned way. For directions on how to untar a tar archive, see the installation instructions within the above hypertext documentation. NOTE: In this release (as well as the previous one), the maximum number of target values is set to 10000, which can be useful, but which leads to rather large log files for mixture models (other models are not affected). You may wish to reduce the value defined for Max_targets in mix data.h to avoid this.

Bayesian Research Conference
A diverse conference on various aspects of Bayesian decision making held each year in mid February in Studio City, California.
Bayesian Research Conference 43rd Bayesian Research Conference January 13-14, 2005 The Bayesian Research Conference was hosted for 41 years by Ward Edwards, and for the last decade it was held each year in mid February at the Sportsman's Lodge in Studio City, California. These meetings have been very high in quality, extremely diverse in topic and approach, and under Ward's leadership they have been extremely fruitful and constructive. The 42nb meeting was held at California State University, Fullerton. In the Bayesian Research Conference, sometimes called Ward Edwards' conference, investigators present topics that might be empirical or theoretical, involving questions that may be basic or applied, and theories that may be normative or descriptive. Topics deal with decision theory, application, and behavior, and are not limited to Bayes theorem. Michael Birnbaum has been drafted again to host the 43nd meeting in Fullerton January 13-14, 2005. The conference will be held on a holiday weekend, giving you an extra day to travel home. We hope you will accept the invitation to attend, which has more information on the conference. Deadline to submit papers and register is December 22, 2004. On-Line Registration for the 2005 Conference. Workshop in Web Methods: January 15, 2004 A Workshop on How to implement Judgment and Decision Making Research via the WWW will be held January 15 from 8 am to 6 pm. There are up to 15 openings for people who can attend the Saturday sessions. For more information on the Web workshop, see the Application form for the Web Workshop.

Bayesian Nonparametric Regression
Theory, Methods and Applications. Research session at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK; 30 July -- 24 August 2007.
INI Programme BNR - Institute Home Page Programmes Web-Seminars Programme Home Seminars Workshops Additional Links Contacts Mailing List Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences Bayesian Nonparametric Regression: Theory, Methods and Applications 30 July - 24 August 2007 Organisers: Professor N Hjort (Oslo), Dr C Holmes (Oxford), Professor P Mueller (Texas), Professor S Walker (Kent) Programme Theme Bayesian nonparametric regression has traditionally been studied as two separate disciplines. On the one hand researchers have considered the construction of probability measures on spaces of univariate density functions, which act as prior distributions with full coverage in Bayesian inference. These prior distributions are typically achieved by the construction of stochastic processes; the most well known being the Dirichlet process. On the other hand, researchers in stochastic modelling have investigated the construction of probability measures on general function spaces which act as regression functions in specifying the evolution of parametric distributions indexed on a covariate set, such as the mean function of a Gaussian process. To date there has been surprisingly little overlap between these two strands of research. The aim of the programme is to bring together researchers working in both areas of Bayesian nonparametrics in order to stimulate further research and discuss the foundations of fully nonparametric regression, in theory, methods and applications.

The Workshop is now held every other year, once in Italy and once in Spain. In this workshop, we will bring together experts in the field to review, discuss and explore directions of development of Bayesian Inference in Stochastic Processes and in the use of Stochastic Processes for Bayesian Inference. There will be sessions on Markov processes, state-space models, spatial, empirical, birth-death and branching processes. Theoretical and applied contributions (for example queueing, population modelling, signal processing) are both welcome. The workshop will thus be of interest to workers in both Bayesian Inference and Stochastic Processes. The workshop will be held in an informal environment ( Villa Monastero , an ancient villa, property of CNR (Italian National Research Council), on the lake of Como) to encourage discussion and promote further research in these fields.

Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics
A meeting devoted to Bayesian statistics held about every 4 years in Valencia, Spain. Next meeting will be early June 2006.
Jos M. Bernardo: Valenciam Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics Bayesian Statistics Statistics is primarily concerned with the analysis of data, either to assist in the appreciation of some underlying mechanism, or to reach effective decisions. In both cases, some uncertainty resides in the situation and the statistician's tasks are both to reduce this uncertainty and to explain it clearly. Problems of this type occur throughout all the physical, social and other sciences. One way of looking at statistics stems from the appreciation that all uncertainty must be described by probability: that probability is the only sensible language for a logic that deals with all degrees of uncertainty, and not just with the extremes of truth and falsity. This is called Bayesian Statistics. Decision-making is embraced by introducing a utility function, itself probability-based, and then maximizing expected utility. Bayesian statistics is designed to handle all situations where uncertainty is found. Since some uncertainty is present in most aspects of life, it is held that Bayesian statistics should be appreciated and used by everyone. It is the logic of contemporary society. It is 'common sense reduced to calculation.' For an elementary, college level, introduction to Bayesian Statistics, see Bernardo (2003) Bayesian Statistics , an article written for the UNESCO Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS). The Valencia Meetings Every four years since 1979, the University of Valencia, Spain, has sponsored meetings devoted to Bayesian Statistics, the Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics. The published proceedings are listed below. The tremendous number of citations generated by them underscores their scientific relevance. The numbers attending have dramatically increased and include not only specialist statisticians but also others whose work has uncertainty as an important ingredient. J. M. Bernardo, M. H.

Orally presented plenary contributed talks A set of 32 twenty-five minute plenary contributed oral presentations selected by the ISBA Conference Programme Committee, which will take place in the afternoons. These will be announced by December 15th, 2005. For submission instructions, see below. 4. Plenary poster sessions A set of three plenary poster sessions, the seminal means of communication of research by conference participants. These will take place in the evenings. The abstracts of poster contributions should be submitted, in the format which will be posted here, before March 31st, 2006. For optional submission to the published conference proceedings see below. Call for ISBA oral presentations ISBA is organizing a limited number of contributed oral presentations. A total of 32 such presentations will be scheduled, each of 25 minutes duration (20 minutes talk, 5 minutes for discussion). Anyone interested in giving an oral presentation is invited to submit an abstract of no more than three pages (including references), accompanied by one additional page listing no more than five relevant published references by the author s. Any additional pages will not be considered. Submissions should be made via email to isba06 at qut.edu.au . Please use the header AbstractName where Name is the first author's name. Attach the abstract and accompanying page as .ps, .pdf or .doc files. Abstracts will be accepted between 1st September and 30th October 2005. No late submissions will be accepted. The ISBA Conference Programme Committee will review and vote on the submissions during November, and the list of selected presentations will be available on the conference website by 15th December 2005. The ISBA Conference Programme Committee comprises the following: Kerrie Mengersen (Australia, co-chair), Peter Mueller (USA, co-chair), Herbie Lee (USA, co-chair Finance), Jose Bernardo (Spain, past Chair; Valencia Programme Committee), Subashis Ghosal (USA), Paolo Giudici (Italy), Merlise Clyde (USA), Yanan Fan (Australia), Judith Rousseau (France), Cathy Chen (Taiwan), Richard Arnold (New Zealand), Paul Mostert (South Africa), Robert Wolpert (USA), Josemar Rodrigues (Brazil), Jiangsheng Yu (China), Antonietta Mira (Italy), Mark Steel (UK), Fabrizio Ruggeri (Italy). Proceedings Authors of invited papers will be asked to submit their final versions as soon as available, but before May 1st 2006, in a specific LaTeX style which will be posted at the conference web page. For contributed papers at the meeting, the following two-step publication process is encouraged: 1. Submit the paper to Bayesian Analysis (http: ba.stat.cmu.edu). Submission can, of course, be done at any time; indeed, submission well before the conference is encouraged. The paper will then undergo the usual refereeing process of the journal. 2. Authors of those papers that are accepted by Bayesian Analysis (and presented as either an oral contributed paper or as a poster at the Valencia meeting) are encouraged to prepare a synopsis of the paper---of at most 5 pages---to be submitted for publication in the Valencia Volume. A synopsis must clearly be so labelled, and should provide an overview of the primary Bayesian Analysis article. The synopsis should also use the LaTeX style posted at the conference web page. Those contributed papers accepted by Bayesian Analysis, presented at the Valencia meeting, and for which a synopsis is submitted to the Valencia Proceedings will be considered for the Lindley Prize (www.bayesian.org awards LindleyPrize.html). Note that it will be the original paper, not the synopsis, that will be considered for the Lindley Prize. A CD-ROM of papers will be distributed at the conference. The final pdf version of all invited papers must be submitted by May 1st 2006 and will be included on the CD. Contributing authors whose full papers are accepted by Bayesian Analysis will also need to submit the synopsis by May 1st 2006 in order to appear on the CD (so that early submission to Bayesian Analysis is strongly encouraged). Bayesian Statistics 8, the conference proceedings, will be published after the meeting by Oxford University Press. Edited by the Conference Programme Committee, this will include refereed versions of the invited papers and the synopsis arising from the contributed papers that are accepted in Bayesian Analysis. The title page, the preface and the contents of Bayesian Statistics 7, the Proceedings of the previous meeting, may be downloaded from Valencia 7 . Registration The registration fee (which includes the farewell dinner) is 225 250 Eur for ISBA Non-ISBA members. Non-ISBA members may use the conference registration form to join ISBA at a reduced 25 Eur fee and qualify for the ISBA registration fee. The registration fee for accompanying persons (which also includes the farewell dinner) is 100 Eur. The accommodation fee at Gran Hotel Bali for the full period, (6 nights) with breakfast and dinner (including beer or wine), but not lunch, is 650 450 Eur on single double occupancy basis. The hotel has 52 floors and delegates are encouraged to express their floor preference at registration; the 400 pre-reserved rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The cost of the use of the auditorium, and that of renting the required equipment has been distributed in the fees quoted above. To register, please open here the registration form RegistrationForm , or download it as a pdf file V8Registration.pdf , and mail, e-mail or fax the completed form, including the appropriate payment details, to the address provided at the form heading. Grants The organizing committee is submitting grant proposals for travel support to junior researchers and colleagues from developing countries. Applications forms for financial support will be posted here.

For Technometrics Book Reviews, email files that can be printed out as editable copy (WORD, WordPerfect, or FAXed as last resort). No need to mail hard copies. Email to the editorial office at walberjc@bp.com . About the Journal Since its inception in 1959, the mission of Technometrics has been to contribute to the development and use of statistical methods in the physical, chemical, and engineering sciences. Technometrics publishes papers that describe new statistical techniques, illustrate innovative application of known statistical methods, or review methods, issues, or philosophy in a particular area of statistics or science, when such papers are consistent with the journal's objective. Since 1959, the methods presented in the journal have reflected changes in the discipline. In recent years, some of these changes have been associated with improved computer technology and availability, resulting in highly flexible and computer-intensive approaches to scientific data analysis. (See for example the lead article in the August 1998 issue by Richard A. Becker, Linda A. Clark, and Diane Lambert entitled "Events Defined By Duration and Severity, with an Application to Network Reliability," with discussion by Jeff Robinson and Josef Schmee.) With the emergence of massive computing and data storage capabilities, statistical approaches to screening, flexible modeling, pattern characterization, and change detection that were infeasible 20 years ago are now viable. There have also been shifts in basic attitudes about data analysis (e.g., less formal hypothesis testing, more fitted models via graphical analysis), and in how some of our important application areas are managed (e.g., quality assurance through robust design rather than detailed inspection). Many of the problems in industry today concern the analysis of huge data sets that lead to improved quality or better understanding of the manufacturing or development process. The journal would like to encourage submissions that address problems of this nature and that take advantage of modern resources. Technometrics is reviewed in Mathematical Reviews, abstracted in Applied Science Technology Abstracts and abstracted and indexed in The Engineering Index, COMPENDEX, and Applied Science Technology Index.

SERJ is published twice a year and is free. SERJ aims to advance research-based knowledge that can help to improve the teaching, learning, and understanding of statistics or probability at all educational levels and in both formal (classroom-based) and informal (out-of-classroom) contexts. Such research may examine, for example, cognitive, motivational, attitudinal, curricular, teaching-related, technology-related, organizational, or societal factors and processes that are related to the development and understanding of stochastic knowledge. In addition, research may focus on how people use or apply statistical and probabilistic information and ideas, broadly viewed. The Journal encourages the submission of quality papers related to the above goals, such as reports of original research (both quantitative and qualitative), integrative and critical reviews of research literature, analyses of research-based theoretical and methodological models, and other types of papers described in full in the Guidelines for Authors. All papers are reviewed internally by an Associate Editor or Editor, and are blind-reviewed by at least two external referees. Contributions in English are recommended. Contributions in French and Spanish will also be considered. A submitted paper must not have been published before or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Further information and guidelines for authors are available below. Submissions Manuscripts should be sent to co-editor Flavia Jolliffe (F.Jolliffe@kent.ac.uk), by email, as an attached document in Word format.

The table of contents is available at the following site: [ Link to the 2005 Table of Contents ] The next issue of JSE is due to be announced in November 2005. Articles in the next issue may appear on the Web site one at a time during the construction of the issue. JSE is a publication of the American Statistical Association Comments from the Editor As I was getting ready to attend the Joint Statistical Meetings in Minneapolis I realized that summer is almost over and I really had to start thinking about what I will be teaching during the Fall semester. I am sure that this time of year many of the readers of JSE are looking for new things to try in their statistics classes. The July issue has many articles that can help out. For those of you teaching a probability course the articles Pedigrees, Prizes, and Prisoners: The Misuse of Conditional Probability and Powerball, Expected Values, and the Law of (very) Large Numbers give some new insight on some probability problems. For those teaching an introductory statistics class, Mean, Median, and Skew: Correcting a Textbook Rule advises you to be more careful when discussing the relationship between the mean and the median for skewed data. Did you ever wonder how certain attributes of students, might affect their performance? Perfectionism in Students: Implications in the Instruction of Statistics looks at one such attribute, perfectionism. From the students perspective, are traditional of non-traditional methods perferred? The article by Johnson and Dasgupta investigates this. I am always looking for new data sets to use in my classes and July's issue has one new data set and a different analysis of an existing data set in the JSE data archive. An Exhalent Problem for Teaching Statistics has data on forced expiratory volume. Say the title aloud, I think the auditory pun was intended. Predicting Body Fat Using Data on BMI gives an alternative analysis of bodyfat data (fat.dat) in the JSE data archive. I hope these articles help you as you prepare to teach statistics in the coming school year. New manuscripts should be submitted to Bob Stephenson ( wrstephe@iastate.edu ). Please see the Guidelines for JSE Authors page for contact information and submission instructions.

ACM:Software System Award
Press release from The Association for Computing Machinery naming Dr. John M. Chambers of Bell Labs as recipient of 1998 Award for developing the S System.
ACM:Software System Award Software System Award CONTACT: Anne P. Wilson 212-626-0505 annewilson@acm.org http: www.acm.org Christopher Morgan 617-262-2044 morgan@acm.org IMMEDIATE ACM HONORS DR. JOHN M. CHAMBERS OF BELL LABS WITH THE 1998 ACM SOFTWARE SYSTEM AWARD FOR CREATING "S SYSTEM" SOFTWARE New York, March 23, 1999...The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) today named Dr. John M. Chambers of Bell Labs as the recipient of the 1998 Software System Award for developing the S System, an innovative software program that helps users to manage and extract useful information from data. The ACM's citation notes that Dr. Chambers' work "will forever alter the way people analyze, visualize, and manipulate data . . . S is an elegant, widely accepted, and enduring software system, with conceptual integrity, thanks to the insight, taste, and effort of John Chambers." The System Software Award recognizes those who develop software systems having a lasting influence. It will be presented on May 15, 1999 during a special ACM awards banquet in New York City, and will be accompanied by a $10,000 prize. Financial support is provided by IBM. About The "S System" The first versions of S in the 1970s pioneered the use of data visualization and interactive statistical computing. Subsequent versions provided richly enhanced modeling capability, and user extensibility, based on its functional object-based approach. Still more recent versions provide a powerful class method structure, new techniques to deal with large objects, extended interfaces to other languages and files, object-based documentation compatible with HTML, and powerful interactive programming techniques. The commercial version, S-Plus, is used across many disciplines where analysts must struggle with creative ways to manage and extract useful information from data. More information about S is available at http: cm.bell-labs.com stat S. John Chambers has been a member of technical staff in research at Bell Laboratories since 1966. In 1997, he became the first statistician to be named a Bell Labs Fellow, cited for "pioneering contributions to the field of statistical computing." His research has touched on nearly all aspects of computing with data but he is best known for the design (and continuing re-design) of the S language. From 1981-83 he was head of the Advanced Software Department, and from 1983-88, head of the Data Analysis and Statistics Research Department. He is the author or co-author of seven books on S, on computational methods, and on graphical methods, most recently Programming with Data: A Guide to the S Language, published in 1998. His professional activities have included being president of the International Association for Statistical Computing and various offices in the ISI, ASA and AAAS. He is a fellow of ASA and AAAS, and a member of ISI. At Bell Labs, he served as head of the advanced software department and the statistics and data analysis research department, before returning to full-time research in 1989. He continues active research on computing with data, with many plans for the future of S and related projects. Dr. Chambers obtained his Ph. D. in statistics in 1966 from Harvard University, after receiving a B. Sc. degree in mathematics from the University of Toronto in 1963 and an M.A. in statistics from Harvard in 1965. About the ACM The Association for Computing (ACM) is a major force in advancing the skills of information technology professionals and students. ACM serves its global membership by delivering cutting-edge technical information and transferring ideas from theory to practice. ACM, with its world-class journals and magazines, dynamic special interest groups, and numerous conferences, workshops, and electronic forums, is a primary resource to the information technology field.

`S Programming' `S Programming' by W. N. Venables and B. D. Ripley Springer. ISBN 0-387-98966-8, 2000. Hardback 232mm 155mm, x+264 pages, US price $59.95 This is a companion to the Third Edition of Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS . It was published on 12 April 2000. On-line material: Description Contents Scripts and complements Errata Contact authors Publisher's Web Sites There are mirrors of this material at Oxford , Sydney , StatLib (Pittsburgh) and Wisconsin . Description: S is a high-level language for manipulating, analysing and displaying data. It forms the basis of two highly acclaimed and widely used data analysis software systems, the commercial S-PLUS and the Open Source R . This book provides an in-depth guide to writing software in the S language under either or both of those systems. It is intended for readers who have some acquaintance with the S language and want to know more about how to use it more effectively, for example to build re-usable tools for streamlining routine data analysis or to implement new statistical methods. One of the outstanding strengths of the S language is the ease with which it can be extended by users. S is a functional language, and functions written by users are first-class objects treated in the same way as functions provided by the system. S code is eminently readable and so a good way to document precisely what algorithms were used, and as much of the implementations are themselves written in S they can be studied as models and to understand their subtleties. The current implementations also provide easy ways for S functions to call compiled code written in C, Fortran and similar languages; this is documented here in depth. Increasingly S is being used for statistical or graphical analysis within larger software systems or for whole vertical-market applications. The interface facilities are most developed on Windows and these are covered with worked examples. The authors have written the widely adopted Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS for Springer, now in its third edition, and several software libraries that enhance S-PLUS and R; these and the examples used in both books are available on the Internet . Dr Venables is now a senior Statistician with the CSIRO CMIS Environmetrics Project in Australia, having been at the Department of Statistics, University of Adelaide for many years previously. Professor Ripley holds the Chair of Applied Statistics at the University of Oxford, and is the author of four other books on spatial statistics, simulation, pattern recognition and neural networks. Both authors are known and respected throughout the international S and R communities, for their books, workshops, short courses, freely available software and through their extensive contributions to the S-news and R mailing lists.

Krause and Olson: The Basics of S-PLUS, 4th edition Andreas Krause, Melvin Olson The Basics of S-PLUS Springer-Verlag, New York 4th Edition, 2005 444 pages ISBN 0-387-26109-5 About the book This book explains the basics of S-PLUS in a clear style at a level suitable for people with little computing or statistical knowledge. Unlike the manuals, it is not comprehensive, but instead introduces the most important ideas of S-PLUS and R, its companion in implementing the S language. The authors take the reader on a journey into the world of interactive computing, data exploration, and statistical analysis. They explain how to approach data sets and teach the corresponding S-PLUS commands. A collection of exercises summarizes the main ideas of each chapter. The exercises are accompanied by solutions that are worked out in full detail, and the code is ready to use and to be modified. The volume is rounded off with practical hints on how efficient work can be performed in S-PLUS, for example by pointing out how to set up a good working environment and how to integrate S-PLUS with office products. The book is well suited for self-study and as a textbook. It serves as an introduction to S-PLUS as well as R. A separate chapter points out the major differences between R and S-PLUS. Over the last editions, the book has been updated to cover important changes like the inclusion of S Language Version 4, Trellis graphics, a graphical user interface, and many useful tips and tricks. The fourth edition is based on S-PLUS Version 7.0 for Windows and UNIX and has been updated and revised accordingly.

Modern Applied Statistics with S
By William N. Venables, B.D. Ripley; Springer-Verlag, 2002, ISBN 0387954570. Guide to using S-Plus and R for statistical analyses: introduces using S, and is a course in modern statistical methods.
Modern Applied Statistics with S, 4th ed Modern Applied Statistics with S. Fourth Edition by W. N. Venables and B. D. Ripley Springer. ISBN 0-387-95457-0, 2002. Hardback 232mm 155mm, xi+495 pages This fourth edition was published in late July 2002, and reprinted in May 2003. Links to material for earlier editions . On-line material: Description Contents Differences from Earlier Editions On-line Complements Exercises and Selected Answers Software and Datasets Errata Contact authors Publisher's Web Sites Description: S is a powerful environment for the statistical and graphical analysis of data. It provides the tools to implement many statistical ideas that have been made possible by the widespread availability of workstations having good graphics and computational capabilities. This book is a guide to using S environments to perform statistical analyses and provides both an introduction to the use of S and a course in modern statistical methods. Implementations of S are available commercially in S-PLUS ; and as the Open Source R for a wide range of computer systems. The aim of this book is to show how to use S as a powerful and graphical data analysis system. Readers are assumed to have a basic grounding in statistics, and so the book is intended for would-be users of S-PLUS or R and both students and researchers using statistics. Throughout, the emphasis is on presenting practical problems and full analyses of real data sets. Many of the methods discussed are state of the art approaches to topics such as linear, nonlinear and smooth regression models, tree-based methods, multivariate analysis, pattern recognition, survival analysis, time series and spatial statistics. Throughout modern techniques such as robust methods, non-parametric smoothing and bootstrapping are used where appropriate. This fourth edition is intended for users of S-PLUS 6.0 or R 1.5.0 (or later). A substantial change from the third edition is updating for the current versions of S-PLUS and adding coverage of R. The introductory material has been rewritten to emphasis the import, export and manipulation of data. Increased computational power allows even more computer-intensive methods to be used, and methods such as GLMMs, MARS, Kohonen's SOM and support vector machines are considered. The authors have written several software libraries that enhance S-PLUS and R; these and all the datasets used are supplied with Windows versions of S-PLUS and all versions of R, and are also available on the Internet in versions for Windows and Unix . There are extensive on-line complements covering advanced material, exercises and new features of S-PLUS and R as they are introduced. Dr Venables is a Senior Statistician with the CSIRO in Australia. He has given many courses on statistical computing, data analysis and graphics using S in Australia, Europe and the USA. Professor Ripley holds the Chair of Applied Statistics at the University of Oxford, and is the author of four other books on spatial statistics, simulation, pattern recognition and neural networks. They are the joint authors of `S Programming' , the authoritative guide to using the S language. S-PLUS is a commercial system of the Insightful Corporation . The book is equally useful with R , a freely-available Open Source statistical system `not unlike S'. Contents Introduction Data manipulation The S language Graphics Univariate statistics Linear statistical models Generalized linear models Non-linear and smooth regression Tree-based methods Random and mixed effects Exploratory multivariate analysis Classification Survival analysis Time series analysis Spatial statistics Optimization Appendices: Implementation-specific details The S-PLUS GUI Datasets, software and libraries On-line Complements The `complements' provide an on-line updating of the book, as well as further details of technical material. Currently there are `Statistical Complements' in gzip-ed postscript and PDF covering Pseudo-random number generators Median polish Gamma GLMs Profiling non-linear fits Smooth estimates of survival and hazard functions Semi-parametric survival modelling Expected survival distributions Tree-structured survival analysis Bivariate spectral analysis Our spatial examples via S+SpatialStats Future complements are planned to cover changes in S-PLUS and in R. Exercises and Selected Answers Some exercises on both S programming and data analysis are available for downloading. There are answers to almost all the programming exercises and to some of the data analysis problems. VR4ex.ps.gz gzip-ed PostScript (125Kb) VR4ex.pdf PDF (240Kb) The PDF version has extensive hyperlinks, for example between exercises and their answers. Viewers can be downloaded from www.adobe.com ; a suitable viewer is normally installed with S-PLUS 6.x on Windows. Errata There are errata lists available for Printing First Edition first second third fourth Second Edition first second third Third Edition first second third Fourth Edition first second Only those for the current edition are maintained. Differences from the Earlier Editions The Second Edition was written when S-PLUS 3.4 was current; version 4.0 appeared shortly after the book. The Third Edition was extensively revised, assuming that the reader had S-PLUS 4.0 or later, and it takes account of S-PLUS 5.x and 2000. As much of the material as possible was usable with S-PLUS 3.3 4 and also with R. This gave accounts of the analyses made possible by the nlme3 and survival5 software. We added enhanced software for robust regression and for proportional odds logistic regression, and provided in-depth analyses using these. The Fourth Edition is targeted at S-PLUS 6.x and R. This enables many new features of current S to be used, and will be particularly helpful to R users for whom almost all the changes needed are present in the main text. We have re-organized the introductory material and added new material on data import export. The statistical material uses automated bandwidth selectors for histograms and density estimation, and adds new material on visualization, ICA, Kohonen's SOM, support vector machines and fitting GLMMs. Material previously in the on-line complements on over-dispersion, factor analysis and correspondence analysis is now in the main text. The time-series material has been re-worked, using the arima() function we wrote and including material on GARCH models. There is a separate chapter on optimization, making use of the optim() function written by BDR for R and now available for S-PLUS in MASS. The material on programming has been reduced since the first and second editions: a much more comprehensive account is given in the companion volume S Programming .

It forms the basis of two highly acclaimed and widely used data analysis software systems, the commercial S-PLUS(R) and the Open Source R. This book provides an in-depth guide to writing software in the S language under either or both of those systems. It is intended for readers who have some acquaintance with S language and want to know how to use it more effectively, for example to build re-usable tools for streamlining routine data analysis or to implement new statistical methods. One ofhe most outstanding strengths of the S language is the ease with which it can be extended by users. S is a functional language, and functions written by users are first-class objects treated in the same way as functions provided by the system. S code is eminently readable and so a good way to document precisely what algorithms were used, and as much of the implementations are themselves written in S, they can be studied as models and to understand their subtleties. The current implementations also provide easy ways for S functions to call compiled code written in C, Fortran and similar languages; this is documented here in depth. Increasingly S is being used for statistical or graphical analysis within larger software systems or for whole vertical-market applications. The interface facilities are most developed on Windows(R) and these are covered with worked examples. The authors have written the widely adopted 'Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS', now in its third edition, and several software libraries that enhance S-PLUS and R; these and the examples used in both books are available on the Internet. Dr. W.N. Venables is a senior Statistician with the CSIRO CMIS Environmentrics Project in Autralia, having been at the Department of Statistics, University of Adelaide for many years previously. Professor B.D. Ripley holds the Chair of Applied Statistics at the University of Oxford, and is the author of four other books on spatial statistics, simulation, pattern recognition and neural networks. Both authors are known and respected thorughout the international S and R communities, for their books, workshops, short courses, freely available software and through their extensive contributions to the S-news and R mailing lists.

These are just some of a complete collection of Omegahat packages for R and S-Plus . Omega is a joint project with the goal of providing a variety of open-source software for statistical applications. The Omega project began in July, 1998, with discussions among designers responsible for three current statistical languages (S, R, and Lisp-Stat), with the idea of working together on new directions with special emphasis on web-based software, Java, the Java virtual machine, and distributed computing. We encourage participation by anyone wanting to extend computing capabilities in one of the existing languages, to those interested in distributed or web-based statistical software, and to those interested in the design of new statistical languages. Software is being developed for the project; we refer to it as the omegahat software, to emphasize in typical statistical terminology that we are starting on a process of approximating the ideal software through many iterations, among other reasons . Follow the pointers below to find out more about the omegahat software. Organization of the Software. Documentation. Mailing Lists. . Source Binary Distributions. Related Software. Philosophy Related Software Some of the many areas in which Java packages may be of value to statistics include: the JDBC database connectivity software, providing a general interface to database systems, extended by some facilities typically needed in statistical applications; numerical computations for linear algebra (e.g., work is currently proceeding on two Java matrix and linear algebra packages called JAMA and COLT ); processing and analysis of images---can we combine computational techniques with the flexibility of graphics and user interface tools in Java; graphics---possible new models for statistical graphics; dynamic reporting -- the Java packages supporting XML , lightweight components ( Swing Java Foundation Classes ), HTML viewers and network-distributed computations make the Omega environment useful for generating reports with live objects. In many of these areas, there have been questions about the speed attainable by Java. Investigating such questions is part of what we want to do. Policy Specific goals and procedures are still being developed, but the current policy includes the following. The code developed will be created and offered as open-source software, under a public license similar to the licenses used for Linux, Netscape, and R. Contributions are encouraged in the form of software compatible with the three-level structure shown above. This includes but is not restricted to: Java packages; software in other languages, if it can be structured as a module defined in CORBA; software for the interactive languages built in Omega. We anticipate organizing software into layers, including at least two: a general contributed software layer and a central layer for core Omega facilities. We have established a number of mailing lists for exchange of ideas. These include lists for general discussion, for Omega packages, for interactive languages using Omega, and for technical issues about Omega itself. Membership The current core group of Omega developers includes: Douglas Bates John Chambers Di Cook Peter Dalgaard Robert Gentleman Kurt Hornik Ross Ihaka Friedrich Leisch Thomas Lumley Martin Mchler Guido Masarotto Paul Murrell Balasubramanian Narasimhan Brian Ripley Gnther Sawitzki Duncan Temple Lang Luke Tierney Bill Venables Participation in the general and special-purpose software work of the Omega project is open to anyone interested in our goals. The mailing lists are a good place to start; in particular omega-devel@omegahat.org is a list for discussion of the general development of software for the project. The success of the Omega project is highly dependent on the involvement of a wide range of participants in many different areas. We can all benefit. The Omega Project Umbrella As well as developing software ourselves, the project also hopes to support other development efforts. To this end, Doug Bates has generously allowed his machine to be used for distributing code for different projects. These projects include. RS-DBI: Database connectivity for both R and S. More general details are also available .

Nonparametric Statistical Analysis
ActiveX program to perform nonparametric testing (e.g., Kruskal-Wallis, Friedman).
Nonparametric Statistical Analysis (Kruskal-Wallis, Friedman) Nonparametric Testing William A. Levinson, P.E., CQE This is a freeware (online ActiveX) program to perform nonparametric tests. It requires Internet Explorer 4 (Service Pack 2 or higher) or version 5 to operate. What it does Accepts data from the clipboard, e.g. data you copy from a spreadsheet. The data columns must contain the Block, Treatment, and Measurement. The first two may be alphanumeric. When there is no blocking, insert a dummy (e.g. "None") for the block. The measurement must be a real number. Performs one of the following nonparametric tests: Kruskal-Wallis rank sum test (similar to one-way analysis of variance) Allows removal of block effects, e.g. if different product or material lots (blocks) are subjected to the treatments of interest. The Friedman test assumes one replicate of each treatment for each block; it does not (apparently) work when there are several replicates of each treatment for each block. This methodology- use of aligned observations, or observations whose block averages have been subtracted before ranking- is not yet proven or documented for the Kruskal-Wallis test. Use with caution. Also shows block ranks when blocking is present. If aligned ranks are used, there should be no block effects, i.e. no significant differences between the blocks. Friedman test for balanced complete block designs: each block or specimen gets one replicate of each treatment. Friedman test with aligned observation ranks. Aligned ranks are computed by (1) subtracting each block's average from each measurement in the block, thus removing block (specimen, lot) effects, and then (2) ranking the aligned observations against each other. Shows the results. ActiveX page with the program The program has been marked as safe for initialization and scripting. It writes a file called nonparam.txt to your hard drive; this is simply a copy of what you place on the clipboard. It does not write anything else to your hard drive unless you tell it to, e.g. to save a chart as a bitmap file. Data Format for Input This is how your data might look in a spreadsheet. Alphanumeric is O.K. for Block and Treatment. Copy your data (do not include the headers "Block," "Treatment," "Response") and click the appropriate button on the display.

Gage Capability
ActiveX program to perform gage capability (reproducibility and repeatability) studies.
Gage Capability (Reproducibility and Repeatability) Gage Capability (Reproducibility and Repeatability) William A. Levinson, P.E., CQE This is a freeware (online ActiveX) program to perform gage studies. See Levinson and Tumbelty, 1997, SPC Essentials and Productivity Improvement: A Manufacturing Approach . It requires Internet Explorer 4 (Service Pack 2 or higher) or version 5 to operate. What it does Accepts data from the clipboard, e.g. data you copy from a spreadsheet. The data columns must contain the Operator, Specimen, Replicate, and Measurement. The first three (operator, specimen, and replicate) must be integers. The measurement must be a real number. The sample data file contains an example of the format, and you can use it to try the program. (Do not copy the column labels, copy A2..D121 to reproduce the results in SPC Essentials and Productivity Improvement, pp. 171-172) Performs a gage capability study by means of: the General Motors long form method (uses sample ranges and control chart factors) (other methods may be added later, e.g. Analysis of Variance variance components) Generates a range chart that shows sample ranges for each operator and specimen. For detection of outliers The bitmap chart can be saved for copying into reports ActiveX page with the program Help file for the program (gage_cap.hlp) Help file contents (gage_cap.cnt) Download the .hlp and .cnt files to have a Windows Help file with a table of contents Sample data in an Excel file (gage_cap.xls, version 5 95 for compatibility with older spreadsheets) The program has been marked as safe for initialization and scripting. It writes a file called gage_cap.txt to your hard drive; this is simply a copy of what you place on the clipboard. It does not write anything else to your hard drive unless you tell it to, e.g. to save a chart as a bitmap file. Note: This program's output does not constitute consulting engineering advice.

Least Squares Method Program
A nonlinear least squares fitting program that handles input errors or a covariance matrix on each axis. The curve fitting can use many curves simultaneously and stick them together with their parameters or points, in many dimensions.
Least Squares Method Curve Fitting Program to download. Nonlinear Weighted Least Squares Regression Analysis. Multidimensional Least Squares Fitting Software. Errors in X and Y. LEAST SQUARES METHOD CURVE FITTING PROGRAM Brief description of the program. LSM program performs Least Squares Nonlinear Regression Analysis. The method is also called: Curve Fitting, Least Squares Fitting, Least Squares Method, Least Squares Estimation, Least Squares Approximation. The program fits parameters of curve(s) given analytically to given points. LSM program can carry out nonlinear regression analysis (curve fitting): in many dimensions, with input errors in the directions of all axes, using input covariances, if needed, using many curves approximated simultaneously, curves may be stuck with some their parameters as well as with some points. Tens of elementary functions are available (to create any curve equation). The goodness of fitting can be controled by the chi-sqr quantity. Fitted (estimated) points and their uncertainties can be shown. Data in spreadsheet format. Least Squares Nonlinear Regression Analysis, Curve Fitting Each function must have the form of an expression obtained by transferring all terms to one side of equation. Example: replace your fitting formula z = a1*x2 + a2*y + a3 with x3= a1*x1^2 + a2*x2 + a3 and write it in the involved form F(x1,x2,x3)=0, without the "=0" part: a1*x1^2 + a2*x2 + a3 - x3 Curve Fitting, Least Squares Method, Least Squares Fitting This form enables applying complicated curves that are not a graph of any function, applying complicated curve equations from which none of variables can be derived as well as transforming equations to be always computable. The last case may be useful when some point coordinate or a parameter value being changed during computation temporarily go beyond domain boundary. Nonlinear Least Squares Regression Analysis Use the LSM program especially when the point uncertainties are in many axes and they are all known, or point covariance matrix is known, or the problem is in more than two dimensions, or the curve is not a graph of any function (e.g. a circle), or the curve is given by an equation from which no variable can be derived, or you use a combination of curves stuck with points or parameters. Least Squares Method, Least Squares Estimation On the basis of input errors, the chi-sqr parameter and its standard deviation is calculated (chi-sqr expected value equals the number of degrees of freedom). If the chi-sqr value obtained is close to the number of degrees of freedom (i.e. the number of points minus the number of parameters), it is likely that the points and the point errors fit the model assumed. Curve Fitting, Least Squares Fitting, Least Squares Approximation The method used in LSM program gives exactly the same values of parameter uncertainties as "other programs not allowing X uncertainties" if in LSM program all input X (or X1, X2, ... for many dimensions) uncertainties are fixed at zero and input Y uncertainties are such that chi-sqr (from the menu item GInf) is equal to the number of degrees of freedom. Program description Comparison to "other programs" More precise description can also be found in readme file in the program package. LSM program requires MS-DOS 3.0 (or later) or Microsoft Windows 3.0 (or later 95 98 2000 XP). Please forward questions or suggestions to the author: janand@prz.edu.pl affiliation (in Polish) J. A. Mamczur Institute of Physics RzeszowUniversity ofTechnology Al. Powstancow Warszawy 6 35-959 Rzeszow, POLAND Exemplary approximation results Approximating curve - ellipse; Input error rectangles -(red); Output (estimated) error ellipses -(green). Two different approximating curves with common parameter (asymptote abscissa); Input covariance matrix - error ellipses (red). Least Squares Nonlinear Regression Analysis, Curve Fitting Each function must have the form of an expression obtained by transferring all terms to one side of equation! Every parameter must be denoted by a1, a2, a3, ..., and every point coordinate - by x1, x2, x3, ... (instead of x ,y, z, ...). Calculation time is significantly longer due to method nonlinearity caused by the assumption of input errors for all coordinates of points. Even in case of fitting a straight line, the regression is nonlinear.

Nonlinear Statistical Regression Analysis
General linear and nonlinear statistical regression analysis.
NLREG -- Nonlinear Regression Analysis Program NEWS NLREG has been selected as the "Editor"s Pick" by SoftSeek . NLREG is in use at hundreds of universities, laboratories, and government agencies around the world (over 20 countries). For a list of a few organizations using NLREG click here. If you have categorical variables, you may want to use a Decision Tree to model your data. Check out the DTREG Decision Tree Builder . You also should check out the News Rover program that automatically scans Usenet newsgroups, downloads messages of interest to you, decodes binary file attachments, reconstructs files split across multiple messages, and eliminates spam and duplicate files. NLREG is a powerful statistical analysis program that performs linear and nonlinear regression analysis, surface and curve fitting. NLREG determines the values of parameters for an equation, whose form you specify, that cause the equation to best fit a set of data values. NLREG can handle linear, polynomial, exponential, logistic, periodic, and general nonlinear functions. Unlike many "nonlinear" regression programs that can only handle a limited set of function forms, NLREG can handle essentially any function whose form you can specify algebraically. NLREG features a full programming language with a syntax similar to C for specifying the function that is to be fitted to the data. This allows you to compute intermediate work variables, use conditionals, and even iterate in loops. With NLREG it is easy to construct piecewise functions that change form over different domains. Since the NLREG language includes arrays, you can even use tabular look-up methods to define the function. Here is an example of an NLREG program for fitting a damped sine wave to some data: Title "Damped pendulum motion"; Variables Time,X; Parameter A,alpha,w,offset,Phase; Function X = A*exp(-alpha*Time)*sin(w*(Time-Phase))+offset; Plot; Data; [ data goes here ] NLREG performs true nonlinear regression analysis and curve fitting, it does not transform the function into a linear form. As a result, it can handle functions that are impossible to linearize such as: Y = Amplitude*sin(Freq*X+Phase) + Growth*exp(X) + Offset; Where "Amplitude", "Freq", "Phase", "Growth", and "Offset" are parameters whose values are to be determined by NLREG. Another advantage of handing the function in true nonlinear form is that the minimization of the sum of squared residual values (i.e., "least squares") is based on the true nonlinear value rather than some linearized transformation. In addition to computing the optimal values of the parameters to best fit the function to the data, NLREG can generate plots of the data points and the fitted equation. In addition, it can plot the distribution of residual values and produce a normal probability plot. NLREG also computes auxiliary statistics such as Student"s t, Prob(t), F, Prob(F), Durbin-Watson, and, optionally, correlation and covariance matrices. The Standard version of NLREG can fit up to 5 variables and parameters to the data observations. The Advanced version can handle up to 2000 variables and parameters. In addition, the Advanced version can generate 3D surface plots such as shown here: In addition to performing classic nonlinear regression, NLREG can be used to find the root or minimum value of a general multivariate, nonlinear function. It can also be used in a special form where the independent variable is omitted; an interesting application of this is " circular regression " where a circle is fitted to a set of data points. DLL (Dynamic Link Library) and COM object versions of NLREG are available for applications that want to call NLREG as an "engine" to perform regressions. Click here to see an example Visual Basic program that calls the NLREG COM Library. NLREG has been validated using the Statistical Reference Datasets developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Download demonstration copy of NLREG. Download manuals for NLREG. Order NLREG. If you have data with categorical variables such as race, gender, marital status, malignant benign, etc., you may want to use a Decision Tree to model your data.

Statistical Software :: Multiple Linear Regression Technologies for Decision Makers Consulting | Development | Internet | Products | Tech News | Home StatisticalAnalysis Muliple Variable Regression Components for Delphi Programming Applied Analytic Systems' Multiple Regression Analysis components were designed so that a developer with little knowledge of statistics and some database application development skills, can program an application with full OLS regression analysis capabilities. The components contain all of the mathematics required for regression modeling analysis of data from datasets in which a relationship between the data in multiple datafields is suspected. Advanced Regression Modeling Analysis The MLR components support transformation of the data contained in database table fields. For any variable x in the regression model: y = b0 + b1x1 + ... + bnxn + e , possible transformations of xj include field1*field2 (product transformation) ln(field1) (log transformation) 1 field1 (multiplicative inverse transformation) field1k (kth power transformation) where field1 and field2 are any two fields within a database result set. Response variables can also be transformed to achieve a curvi-linear regression model. Modeling the data transformations is explained in the MLR Help file. References for Regression Analysis Before programming a regression application, review of regression theory would be very helpful. Both of the following texts are highly recommended as references for multiple variable regression techniques. The text by J. Wesley Barnes is more introductory in nature. Statistical Analysis for Engineers and Scientists by J. Wesley Barnes, 1994 Applied Regression Analysis by Norman R. Draper, Harry Smith, 1998 How the Components Work The initial version included a TTable descendent component (TMLRTable) class and a TQuery descendent (TMLRQuery) component class. Each of these required the presence of the Borland Database Engine on the target system. Version 2.0 replaces the TMLRTable and TMLRQuery with a single TDatasource descendent, TMLRDatasource, making the component set independent of the database engine. This new component can be used with any TDataset descendent which implements the typical dataset navigation methods, e.g. TADOTable TClientDataset TDBISAMTable Query TIBTable TTable Query TYourOwnTDatasetDescendent The TMLRDatasource component loads the data contained in its assigned Dataset property, and performs the developer-defined modeling and the associated required mathematical calculations. TMLRegress Features Instantaneously performs regression on any numeric data accessible through any TDataset compatible database engine. No need for your customers to to export data from your application's Paradox, dBase, or InterBase file formats to SPSS, SAS, Excel, Quattro Pro, or 1-2-3 to analyze. Scatter plots quickly show whether a linear data trend appears to be present among any of the control variables and the response variable. A variety of residual plots are available to access whether the general assumptions of a linear regression model are satisfied. Plots of residuals, y vs xi , for each i, and the cumulative distribution function can be viewed using the component plotting methods, or via another third-party graphing utility using the component properties. Can identify outlying data and predict the value of the dependent variable for different inputs of independent variable values. Delphi VCL Components allow developers to set all the parameters visually at design time if appropriate, or to develop complex models at run time.

DEMETRA
Free user-friendly interface to Tramo Seats and X-12-Arima for automated applications and for detailed time series analysis.
Information Information DSIS - Seasonal Adjustment Information Advanced seasonal adjustment interface DEMETRA 2.0 Service Pack 1 - Release (May 2002) DOWNLOAD HERE After a careful comparison of several methods for Seasonal Adjustment, Eurostat has decided to focus its attention on two seasonal adjustment methods: Tramo Seats , an ARIMA model-based method, written by V. Gmez and A. Maravall and X-12-Arima of the US Census Bureau. These two methods have had to be implemented in a single interface, called "DEMETRA", in order to facilitate the application of these modern time series techniques to large-scale sets of time series and in the explicit consideration of the needs of production units in statistical institutes, especially Eurostat. Thus, DEMETRA has been developed to ease the access of non-specialists and specialists in time-series statistics to the packages Tramo Seats and X-12-Arima and to improve largely their user-friendliness. Demetra imposes a recognised seasonal adjustment policy, and follows standard practice of seasonal adjustment. DEMETRA contains two main modules: seasonal adjustment and trend estimation with an automated procedure (e.g. for unexperienced users or for large-scale sets of time series), and with a user-friendly procedure for detailed analysis of single time series. The automated module allows the fully automatic treatment of lists of up to thousands of time series. Every period (e.g. month, quarter) the system has to get the time series stored in a database, to apply to each series a given method that should be consistent with what was done before, to run the seasonal adjustment for the whole set of time series, to test if the results are satisfactory and to store the satisfactory results in the database. Thus, the interface proposes four statistical tools for a seasonal adjustment using default or customised parameters for a new automatic processing or using previous model settings including already estimated ARIMA and regression coefficients or with re-estimation of these coefficients. For doing this, DEMETRA provides features for storing the seasonal adjustment settings for each original time series in the database. These tools support a policy for reduced (e.g. only yearly) revisions of the seasonal adjustment models used. After the execution of the complete list of series, a general overview with important information on the modelling specifications and diagnostic statistics for all series is shown. For series facing some difficulties, a thorough and assisted examination is provided using up to two alternative models, more detailed diagnostic tables and graphs. The module for detailed analysis facilitates the comparison between the results corresponding to different model specifications for single time series in practical cases. DEMETRA includes the most important features of Tramo Seats (Nov'99 Sep'98) and X-12-Arima (0.2.8 release): pre-adjustment with automatic detection and correction of outliers, removing of calendar effects, automatic model identification selection, forecast, seasonal adjustment and trend estimation, revision history and sliding span analysis, and diagnostic checking. DEMETRA is a fully menu driven package running under Windows XP NT 2000 Me 98 95. It provides access to date in FAME, MS-EXCEL, ASCII, SAS and ORACLE EXPRESS databases. (The "namelist" object of FAME can be used.) DEMETRA was developed by EUROSTAT with participation of Jens Doss and Servais Hoffmann, Pierre Kelsen, Christophe Planas and Raoul Depoutot. DEMETRA 2.0 is an improvement for the look and user-friendliness. Some of the most important changes are: completely new presentation of the "Automated Module" projects new wizards for the creation of new projects and the SA processing adding removing of time series in a "Automated Module" project printing facilities (for graphs, tables, text files and quality reports) functions for reading, generating and translating input files in the original Tramo Seats and X-12-Arima formats (*.inp, *.spc files) customizable working directory (support for network-based installations), name and maximum size of log file AutoRecover function (automatic backup and recovery) includes project properties e.g. for title, author, keywords and comments context-sensitive help (will be completed with a future update of the "Demetra.hlp" file) update of X-12-Arima to last available release version 0.2.8 DEMETRA 2.0 (Service Pack 1) - Release besides corrections for bugs contains also new tools: access to data in Oracle Express databases (Personal Express 5 6, Express Server 5 6) enhanced FAME access: dramatically increased catalogue-retrieval speed, retrieves "formula" objects, handling of usergroup access rights, better use of log-file taylorable composite index for the sake of automatic processing business-cycle analysis using ARIMA-model-based calculation of the Hodrick-Prescott filter (Tramo Seats) automatic optimisation (reduction) of the number of trading day regressors (model) stability analysis for improving the yearly modelling expert system for a fully-automatic model for series with rejected adjustments more flexible and memory-saving management of projects with "very large-scale" datasets (for Fame of Express data) saving of calendar-effect corrected series (Tramo Seats) saving of parameters in original formats in the databases (for X-12-Arima and Fame databases, the format for the X-12-Arima Fame interface is used) possibility of saving Seats factors not as percentages but as "normal" factors modelling span for Tramo Seats smooth function for the determination of the critical value for the outlier detection (Tramo Seats, depending on the time series length) deletion or execution of several models at once in Detailed analysis module cut copy paste of models in Detailed analysis module and adaptation of the model names graphs for seasonal factors per period, and result series of business-cycle analysis, improved selections of series to be graphed Example of the "Automated Module" project presentation: Example of the DEMETRA seasonal adjustment quality report: How can one access time series in FAME databases with DEMETRA? Scenario 1: Your FAME programme and databases are on a Windows XP NT 2000 server: You will be able to directly access them from a connected Windows-based PC without any additional installations. Scenario 2: Your FAME programme and databases are on a UNIX server: You will be able to access them from a connected Windows-based PC. The "Demetra Fame Server" must be previously compiled and installed on the UNIX server. DEMETRA is freely available.

CaterpillarSSA
Based on the model-free method of time series analysis Caterpillar-SSA (Singular Spectrum Analysis). The result of the Caterpillar-SSA processing is identification, analysis and forecast of additive components of time series (trends, periodicities, noise). The program can be applied to multivariate analysis forecasting and change-point detection.
Time series analysis and forecasting, Caterpillar SSA method Main Books Software Examples News About us Time series analysis and forecasting The site is devoted to 'Caterpillar' (another name is SSA - Singular Spectrum Analysis), a powerful method of time series analysis and forecasting. The 'Caterpillar'-SSA is a model-free technique of time series analysis. It combines advantages of other methods, such as Fourier and regression analyses, with simplicity of visual control aids. The basic 'Caterpillar'-SSA algorithm for analyzing one-dimensional time series consists of: Transformation of the one-dimensional time series to the trajectory matrix by means of a delay procedure (this gives the name to the whole technique); Singular Value Decomposition of the trajectory matrix; Reconstruction of the original time series based on a number of selected eigenvectors. Thus, the result of the 'Caterpillar'-SSA processing is a decomposition of the time series into several components, which can often be identified as trends, seasonalities and other oscillatory series, or noise components. This decomposition initializes forecasting procedures for both the original time series and its components. The method can be naturally extended to multidimensional time series and to image processing. The 'Caterpillar'-SSA ideas were independently developed in Russia (St. Petersburg, Moscow) and also in UK and USA (under the name of SSA; that is, Singular Spectrum Analysis). The method is a powerful and useful tool of time series analysis in meteorology, hydrology, geophysics, climatology and, according to our experience, in economics, biology, physics, medicine and other sciences; that is, where short and long, one-dimensional and multidimensional, stationary and nonstationary, almost deterministic and noisy time series are to be analyzed. Our group participates in developing the method and corresponding software from the middle of 90s. The site contains results of this development. They are: information on two books devoted to the method and the software that allows everyone to feel simplicity and efficacy of its applications. We are sure, that in a near future 'Caterpillar'-like methods will rank among the base methods of time series analysis and will be included in standard statistical software.

Worksheet Size Startup Macro Transferring Worksheets Between Machines Interrupting Minitab Using Minitab in Batch Mode Comments References Introduction Minitab is an easy-to-use package, used interactively on many computer systems to provide data manipulation and statistical analysis for small to medium sized datasets. Data are held in a temporary worksheet of rows and columns. (The columns usually represent the variables and the rows represent the observations.) We currently run two versions of Minitab at Bath. The UNIX machines midge and mary have Version 9.1 including Professional Graphics. We also have Version 10 for Microsoft Windows. In terms of facilities these two implementations are similar (Version 10 has some extra commands). The major difference is the user interface. Version 10 for Windows has a session window, which is identical to the UNIX session window, it also has a spreadsheet style data window and most commands can be selected from drop down menus. These drop down menus do help considerably with graph production but for statistical procedures it may still be quicker to type the commands into the session window, as you would in the UNIX version. The Microsoft Windows version is much slower than the UNIX version. The Student Edition of Minitab for Windows can be purchased from the book shop (ISBN 020159157X) for about 40. This is actually a hybrid between version 9.1 and 10 with a limited worksheet size and no matrix operations. It comes with a good manual and represents good value. This document concentrates on the UNIX implementation of Version 9.1 most of which applies to the Microsoft Windows version also. Minitab is fully described in Reference 1. Reference 4 provides a more elementary introduction to the Minitab package plus some introduction to statistical techniques and explanation of Minitab output. The example worksheets and data files referred to in the Minitab documentation are stored in the directory opt minitab9.1 data. The directory opt minitab9.1 student contains datasets from The Minitab Student Handbook[4]. The file README in that directory describes the datasets. A good way to learn about Minitab is to enter Minitab (see below) and type help overview. Minitab Overview The Minitab package is invoked by typing: minitab When Minitab is entered it displays a banner and the current Minitab message of the day followed by the standard Minitab prompt MTB . When you enter Minitab with the minitab command you have access to a worksheet which is initially unnamed. The worksheet holds columns of numbers or text, referred to as C1, C2 etc, constants (K1, K2) and matrices (M1, M2). Data are entered into these structures and manipulated, etc. The columns can be given informative names using the name command. The worksheet is not saved when Minitab is exited and must be saved explicitly by the user with the save command. Previously saved worksheets can be retrieved at the start of a session with the retrieve command. Only the first four letters of a Minitab command are significant; extra letters in the command are ignored as is extra text between the components of a command. Each command is typed on a new line. Some commands have subcommands; in which case the command is terminated with a semi-colon and a carriage return while subcommands are given one per line each terminated with a semi-colon. The final subcommand is terminated with a full stop. A short example session follows: retrieve 'example' let c3 = c1 + c2 let k1 = mean(c3) plot c3 against c2; title 'Example Plot'. save 'example' stop The retrieve command loads a worksheet which has had data entered into it at some previous time. Only the first four letters of the command are necessary, so this command could be just: retr 'example' The other commands are self- explanatory. Notice that the plot command has a subcommand, title. The command stop exits Minitab. Extensive help is available on line via the Minitab help command. Thus: help commands gives information on all Minitab commands. help overview Gives a more general discussion of various topics. Inputting Data Data can be entered into a worksheet during a Minitab session with the read and set commands. read expects one or more columns to be read in row by row into the specified columns. The data are terminated with end. read c1 c2 1 2.4 3 3.2 4 4.5 end The set command has extra features which allow regular sequences of numbers to be read in efficiently, but only acts on a single column. set c1 1:10 13 15 end 1:10 expands to 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 2(1:3) expands to 1,2,3,1,2,3 (1:3)2 expands to 1,1,2,2,3,3 Type help set for more details. Both read and set can be used with a filename to read the data from an ASCII data file instead of the keyboard. This file might have been created outside Minitab with a standard editor such as vi or xedit. Data can be space or comma separated. A format subcommand allows more complex data formats. If a single component filename is given with the read or set command, the suffix .DAT is assumed. If the search does not find the filename with suffix .DAT, the filename without the suffix is searched for. For example the command: read 'data' C1 C2 will first look for the file data.DAT and then for the file data. read and set have a FORTRAN-like format subcommand which can be used to define the format of data files. Saving and Retrieving the Worksheet The whole Minitab worksheet is saved using the save command. If no filename is given, the file minitab.MTW in your working directory is assumed. If a single component name is used, the suffix .MTW is added to the name. Saving the worksheet to an existing file causes the file to be overwritten. If the filename is given explicitly on the save command line, you are warned before the contents are overwritten if a file of the given name already exists. If, however, a filename is not specified (ie the default filename is assumed), the contents of that file are overwritten without warning. Worksheets cannot be appended to. An existing worksheet is loaded into Minitab using the retrieve command. The same filename conventions apply as for save, ie the default filename is minitab.MTW and the default filename suffix is .MTW. The filename without the default suffix is retrieved if the search for a filename with the suffix .MTW has failed. Retrieving an existing worksheet destroys the current worksheet without warning. When a worksheet is retrieved it is often useful to remind yourself what is stored in it by typing the info command. Logging and Printing a Minitab Session. The Minitab commands outfile and paper are available to log Minitab sessions. They both store a record of user input and Minitab output in a text file which can subsequently be printed. Inside Minitab give the outfile command with a file name. outfile 'log' When the session is ended with the Minitab command stop or the logging is terminated with the command nooutfile, a file called log.LIS is saved in the user's working directory. This can be printed from outside Minitab with the command: lpr log.LIS paper is similar to outfile but requires no filename (and ignores a filename without warning if one is given). The logged session is stored as an ASCII text file in the user's working directory; the pathname of the file PRINTER.LIS. Further use of outfile (or paper) with the same filename after a nooutfile (or nopaper) causes the new log to be appended to the existing file. So these commands can be used to log just those parts of the session you need. The journal and nojournal commands are used to log only the user input. This is useful for storing sequences of Minitab commands for later execution using execute (see Storing and Executing Command Files ). If a single component filename is given with journal, the suffix .MTJ is added. If no filename is given with this command, the file minitab.MTJ is created in the working directory. Transferring Data Between Applications The write command used with a file name will write the specified columns to a standard ASCII text file. write has a format subcommand. write 'data' c1-c10 Will write the first ten columns to a file called data.DAT in the user's working directory. This file could be used as input to another application such as a graph drawing program. The read command is used in exactly the same way to import data from an ASCII file. Storing and Executing Command Files Sequences of Minitab commands can be stored in a text file and then executed using the execute command; such files are known as exec macros. Command files can be created using an editor, or by using the journal or the store command. store takes input from the terminal and creates a text file. If no filename is given, both store and execute assume the file minitab.MTB in the working directory. If a single component filename is used, the suffix .MTB is added. If the search for a filename with the default suffix fails, Minitab searches for a file without a suffix. store overwrites an existing file of the same name. If the filename is given explicitly on the store command line, the user is warned before the contents are overwritten if a file of the given name already exists. If, however, a filename is not specified on the command line (ie the default filename is assumed), the contents of that file are overwritten without warning. In addition to the standard exec macros, described above, Minitab 9.1 has progressed to a much more powerful alternative macro language called %macros. These macros are stored with a .MAC suffix and are executed by giving the name of the macro with a % in front of it. For example: %weibplot c1 will execute a standard macro which produces a Weibull probability plot on the data in c1. To try this example you need to be on an X-terminal or equivalent and you will have to increase the default Minitab memory using the MINISIZE environment variable (see Worksheet Size ). Graphics Minitab 9.1 has two graphics modes, Standard Graphics and Professional Graphics. Professional Graphics can only be used if you work on an X-terminal or equivalent (such as a PC with the Exceed software). The Minitab default is to place you in Professional Graphics Mode when you start up. At Bath, to ensure that you start in Standard Mode the script which runs Minitab copies a startup macro file, called startup.MAC, to your current directory. This executes the single command gstd to switch to Standard Mode when you enter Minitab. If this file exists it is not overwritten. You can of course add your own startup commands to this file (see Startup Macro ). You can switch to Professional Graphics with the gpro command. You can switch back from Professional Graphics to Standard Graphics with the gstd command. Character plots (printer plots) can be displayed on any terminal by using commands such as plot, histogram, dotp, boxp. These will be saved in any log files along with results of statistical tests, etc. Some of these commands work in the same way even with Professional Graphics switched on, but others, such as plot, will have a different syntax. When in Standard Graphics mode, the old way of producing high resolution plots still works; ie using the goptions command to set the output device and commands such as gplot to produce the plot. However, the user is now recommended to use Professional Graphics instead. Printing and Exporting Graphs. This section assumes that you have switched to Professional Graphics by giving the command gpro and selected an output device using the hardcopy command (see below). The gsave subcommand of the graph drawing commands saves a copy of the graph in a minitab internal format. These graphs can be loaded at a future time and printed or exported in a number of standard formats. Minitab gives the graph the extension MGF. for example. plot c1 * c2; gsave 'example'. which will save the graph in as 'example.MGF'. The following commands take the MGF file as input. gview reloads a graph for viewing. gexport exports the graph in a format which is determined by the hardcopy command. gprint prints the graph to a printer in a format determined by hardcopy. Selecting the Output Device. The command hardcopy is used to select one of the following formats. PSC - Postscript or encapsulated PostScript (HP Laserjet, Apple Laserwriter, QMS Colorscript 10 Model 10p) LJT - HP Laserjet IID, IIID, and compatibles. HEW - HPGL format (HP7470x, HP7475, HP7550x ) LN3 - DEC LN03 or compatible CGM - Computer Graphics Metafile PJT - HP Paintjet XL or compatible for example hard 'psc' selects PostScript output. The most useful formats at Bath will be PostScript and CGM. For example to print a graph on the Library Laser Printer do the following. gpro plot c2*c1; gsave 'example'. hard 'psc' gprint 'example' To export a PostScript file for import into a document, save the graph and then give the commands... hard 'psc' gexport 'example' 'example.ps' This will save a PostScript file called example.ps which can be previewed with ghostview (gv) or printed to any PostScript printer (using lpr) or included in a document. The following example includes a Minitab graph in a LaTeX document. \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{epsf} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \epsfysize=40mm \epsfbox[0 1 500 500]{example.ps} \end{figure} \end{document} In this example the Bounding Box has been determined using ghostview (gv). Customising the device configuration file. You might have noticed that the device PSC is described as 'PostScript or encapsulated PostScript'. The default is PostScript because this can be printed directly and imports into many packages without problems if you define a Bounding Box comment for it. Minitab will produce encapsulated PostScript as an alternative. This includes a BoundingBox comment and might import more easily into certain packages. Unfortunately you will need to do some customising of your Minitab setup to use this option. First take a copy of the file opt minitab9.1 newgraphics fig_cnfg.dat Next set the environment variable FIG_CNFG to point at this file. FIG_CNFG=$HOME minitab fig_cnfg.dat You could put this in your .bashrc. Edit the entry for PSC in this file. Change the line 'PSC. 2 3 2 2 90 70' to 'PSC. 2 3 3 2 90 70'. (see comments in the file for meaning of the various parameters) Worksheet Size. The default worksheet size is 10,000 which is large enough for 8,000 data items. If you need a larger worksheet size, set the environment variable MINISIZE before entering Minitab, eg: MINISIZE=100000 export MINISIZE Startup Macro. When Minitab starts up it looks for a macro file in the current directory called startup.MAC. This can be used to execute certain commands automatically every time you enter Minitab. Transferring Worksheets Between Machines. The Minitab worksheet is a binary file and cannot be transferred directly between machines unless they are binary compatible. Minitab provides an option to the save command which saves the whole worksheet in portable format. save 'work'; portable. This saves a file, called work.MTP, which can be transferred to another machine and retrieved as follows. retr 'work'; port. Interrupting Minitab The system command allows a UNIX command to be executed from within the Minitab session. For example: system ls invokes the UNIX ls command. Using Minitab in Batch Mode. Normally Minitab is used interactively. It is also possible to prepare a set of Minitab commands in a text file with an editor and submit this file to Minitab as standard input, eg: minitab batchjob batchjob.out The first command should be batch, and the last stop, otherwise the commands are more or less those which you would type in an interactive session. There are a number of commands which are useful in batch mode. These are described in the Minitab Reference Manual[1]. Comments Comments can be included with input to Minitab using or the command note; this allows explanatory text to be included in macro files and logged sessions. can appear anywhere in a command line; it causes the rest of the line to be taken as a comment and ignored. The note command, used at the beginning of a line, causes the whole line to be taken as a comment and ignored.

Raynald's SPSS Tools
Archive of 350+ sample SPSS syntax, scripts and macros classified by purposes, as well as FAQ, Tips, Tutorials and a Newbie's Corner.
Raynald's SPSS Tools FAQ Syntax Macros Scripts Python Tips Links Keywords: powered by FreeFind Site Map Feedback Other languages Deutsch Espaol Francais Italiano Portugus Russian Do you love this site? Welcome to my SPSS pages! I started to use the SPSS software in 1992. Being an actuary , I use it mainly to screen data, analyze insurance claims severity and frequency, fit distribution functions to claims perform risk analysis using Monte Carlo methods and (unexpectedly...) analyze survey data. I also find SPSS's graphs features very powerful and useful to "visualize" the data. Since December 1998, I have participated to the SPSSX-L mailing list and the comp.soft-sys.stat.spss newsgroup. This has had the effect of increasing my knowledge of SPSS by a factor of about 25. I have learned from many strong SPSS'ers such as : John Hendrickx, Hector E. Maletta, Rolf Kjoeller and David Marso. In turn, I have answered about 2,100 questions posted to these two discussion groups. It is more fun to learn SPSS by answering real questions rather than just reading the books and "making up problems" to solve. I find the diversity of problems and situations encountered in these groups to be fascinating. (This probably tells you a lot about my "personality" ). See the Site Map for a bird's view of the site. Purpose s of this site The main purpose is to present useful code and techniques to increase productivity of all level of SPSS users.Your feedback is welcomed! I wrote most of the 675+ sample syntax , macros and scripts included in this site, to answer questions posted to the 2 groups mentioned above (or addressed directly to me by email). However, I also include pieces of code I got from those two sources, from SPSS AnswerNet or from the web. The site includes FAQ and Tips pages, a Newbie's Corner and more. See the Site Map to get the full picture :-) There is also a section to support the book SPSS Programming and Data Management . I am the author of that book published by SPSS. You may download a free acrobat version of the second edition. Share what you know, learn what you don't! I invite you to contribute to the improvement of this site. For instance, if you have a syntax, macro or script which does something not covered in this site, send me a copy (or send me the link) and I will add it with proper credit. Such code should be self contained, that is, it should either refer to (work on) one of the data file which comes with SPSS or contain dummy data (ideally using DATA LIST or INPUT PROGRAM statements) as well as a brief description of its purposes. Don't be shy! Upon request, I will not mention your name but simply state that it comes comes from an anonymous contributor. As a bonus, If I find the code can be improved on, I will send you a copy but will nevertheless credit you for the improved version (assuming you don't mind). You have nothing to lose! Help me make this the best possible SPSS site. Send me an email and include your code as an attachment. Topic suggestions for new syntax, macro, scripts, FAQ or Tips are also welcomed. Caveats This site is not sponsored by SPSS Inc. I am just an enthusiastic user of SPSS software. Although I am not sure of the legal significance of the following, I am stating it anyway (just in case it is necessary to protect rights of authors whose code is reproduced in these pages): "All code shown here remains the property of the original author, stated here or not. By downloading code from this site, you agree that you are fully responsible to ensure that the code meets your requirements and that the authors are not liable for any loss resulting from the use of such code." This being said, the code I wrote may be freely used or posted on your website (with credit) but may not be sold or otherwise distributed to third parties without written authorization. As far as the web site itself is concerned, it may not be copied without my written authorization. Have fun!

In diesem Beitrag wird anhand eines Beispiels gezeigt, wie man in SPSS eine Lsung einer nicht-linearen Hautpkomponentenanalyse (PRINCALS) rotieren kann. This paper describes an example of how a solution of a non-linear principal components analysis (PRINCALS) can be rotated, using SPSS. 1. Being forced to go beyond ordinary principal components analysis Ordinary principal components analysis is a technique that can be used to explore the relationships within a group of numeric variables. As such it is a very potent technique, but it has two major drawbacks. a) It can only be used with numerical variables, and b) it can only be used assuming that the relationships between the variables are linear. Therefore, using ordinary principal components analysis to explore relationships that might not be linear, between variables of which the measurement level is uncertain, may be tricky. In such cases, non-linear principal components analysis may help. 1 However, non-linear principal components analysis has some disadvantages, too. One of these disadvantages is the fact that the programme PRINCALS, 2 that executes non-linear principal components analysis by alternating least squares, does not enable rotation to a simple structure. As a consequence, solutions with more than two components are very hard to interpret because they cannot be plotted on paper. This paper describes how the solution of a non-linear principal components analysis can still be rotated when data were originally intended to serve in an ordinary principal components analysis, but doubts about the measurement level or the linearity of relations have risen. However, the described procedure can only be used when none of the variables in the analysis is treated as a multiple nominal variable. 3 The procedure may be used for orthogonal rotation as well as for oblique rotation of the component loadings of the variables. When rotating orthogonally, it is also possible to rotate the object scores (component scores) for data reduction purposes. Below, you will find a) a very short and incomplete introduction to non-linear principal components analysis, and b) an annotated example of the rotation procedure in SPSS format. The rotation procedure contains variable names that were used in the research of Konig Renckstorf Wester (2001). It is evident that, in order to use the procedure yourself, you have to replace these variable names by the names of your own variables. 2. Non-linear principal components analysis Non-linear principal components analysis differs from ordinary principal components analysis in that it is possible to treat variables not only as numeric, but as ordinal or nominal variables as well. 4 The categories of all non-numerical variables are assigned a 'category quantification', on a numerical scale. These variables are in fact recoded to give them numerical properties. Of course, the measurement level of the variables restricts the choice of category quantifications. The categories of ordinal variables must be kept in their original order. 5 The category quantifications make it possible to treat the non-numerical variables as numerical variables and perform a principal components analysis. Where ordinary principal components analysis searches for an optimal mean squared correlation between the original variables and the components, non-linear principal components analysis searches for an optimal mean squared correlation between the variables recoded by the category quantifications, and the components. In the search for an optimal mean correlation between the recoded variables and the components, both the component loadings and the category quantifications are varied until the optimum is found. In ordinary principal components analysis only the component loadings are varied. Readers are explicitly referred to Van de Geer (1988), Gifi (1991), De Leeuw (1984), and SPSS (1990). 3.

(back to the text) 2 PRINCALS is incorporated as a procedure in the SPSS package Categories (SPSS 1990). However, PRINCALS is not available through the menus of SPSS for windows. It is only available as a syntax command. (back to the text) 3 See note 5. (back to the text) 4 It is important to note that the choice of measurement level is not only a matter of measurement level, but also of the relationships between variables (Van de Geer 1988; Gifi 1991; De Leeuw 1984). Of course, a nominal variable should not be treated as an ordinal or numeric variable, but it is fairly well possible to treat an ordinal or numeric variable as a nominal variable in the analysis. This, for instance, is needed when the relationship between variables is not monotonic, but curvilinear. (back to the text) 5 As to the category quantifications of nominal variables there are two possibilities. It is possible to compute only one set of category quantifications for a nominal variable, or to compute as many sets of category quantifications as there are components in the analysis. In the first case you treat the variable as a single nominal variable, whereas in the second case, you treat it as a multiple nominal variable (Van de Geer 1988; Gifi 1991; De Leeuw 1984).

How to Use SPSS to Study Ego-Centered Networks
Shows how analyses of networks is best done by starting with 2 data sets: (1) focal individuals and their networks; (2) network members and their ties with focal individuals. Shows how to link these 2 data sets to (a) calculate summary information on each network; (b) combine focal individual, tie, network data.
HOW TO USE SPSS HOW TO USE SPSS TO STUDY EGO-CENTERED NETWORKS Christoph Mller, Barry Wellman, and Alexandra Marin About the authors This is a pre-print version of our paper in Bulletin de mthodologies sociologiques (BMS), no. 64, octobre 1999, pp. 63-76. Abstract SPSS's data-handling facilities make it useful for studying ego-centered networks. Such networks are useful for studying a variety of subjects, such as social support, personal community, and an organization's relationships. We show how analyses of ego-centered networks are best done by starting with two data sets: (1) focal individuals and their ego-centered networks; (2) network members and their ties with focal individuals. We show how to link these two data sets to (a)calculate summary information about each ego-centered network; (b) combine focal individual, tie and network data. Note: This article has been developed from "How to Use SAS to Study Ego-Centered Net works" (Wellman 1992a), itself a thoroughly revised version of Wellman and Baker (1985). The Nature of Ego-Centered Network Data Many social network analysts study ego-centered networks, networks defined "Ptolemaically" from the standpoints of focal individuals ( Figure 1) . Ego-centered (or personal) network analyses are common in the study of community and social support (e.g., Wellman 1999), and they can be used for studying other matters such as corporate relations. Most ego-centered analyses have studied only the direct ties that focal individuals have with the members of their networks. A few analyses have studied the links that network members have among themselves, and a very few have studied a focal individual's indirect ties, such as their ties to the friends of their friends. This article presents some ways of using SPSS software to analyze ego-centered networks. SPSS is one of the most widely-used software packages in the social sciences. It has been crucial in facilitating do-it-yourself research using individuals as discrete units of analysis. (Wellman 1998). However, quantitative studies of ego-centered network data are more complicated than survey research that use individuals as units of analysis. Network analysts must keep track of several different types of information (Campbell and Lee 1991): Characteristics of focal individuals (e.g., their gender or ethnicity); Characteristics of ties between focal individual and network members. These may be relational characteristics (e.g.,each network member's frequency of contact), relational contents (e.g., the extent to which a network member provides emotional aid), or relational types (e.g., whether a network member is a friend, neighbor, workmate or relative of a focal individual). Characteristics of the network members with whom focal individuals have ties (e.g., their gender or ethnicity); Network composition, the aggregated characteristics of the network members and ties in each ego-centered network (e.g., the mean frequency of contact that the members of a network have with a focal individual, the proportion of network members providing emotional aid); Network structural characteristics (e.g., the overall density of ties in a network, the number of clusters in a network). FIGURE 1 ( back ) We deal here only with the basic and most common case: studying first-order, direct ties between focal individuals and their network members. In such analyses, a basic set of problems is how to store and link individual, tie and network data in useful and efficient ways. This article describes some ways of using SPSS to handle these matters. The basic procedure is to.... Store alter and tie data in one tiewise data set; Store ego and network structure data in a separate netwisedata set; Use the same NETID variable and values in the two data sets to identify the focal individuals; Use SPSS's AGGREGATE and MATCH FILES procedures to link the data. Constructing Original Data Sets Tiewise: In tiewise data sets, the characteristics of alters include both their personal characteristics (such as age and gender) and their tie characteristics (such as a sibling relationship). By definition, a focal individual and a network member have exactly one tie, although a single tie often contains multiple role relationships. Even though the tie is between the focal individual and the network member, for computational purposes you can treat network members as "possessing" the characteristics of their ties with focal individuals. This makes it possible to store both network member and tie variables in one data set (arbitrarily called TIE in this article). Netwise: By definition, focal individuals are at the centers of their own ego-centered networks (Figure 1). Thus focal individuals not only have personal characteristics such as gender and ethnicity, they have networks with different densities, numbers of clusters, etc. Hence, analysts can store information about focal individuals and their networks in the same records of a netwise data set (arbitrarily called NET in this article). However, it is often more useful to use the procedures described in this article to compute data about the composition of networks. Data Entry: One special condition for data entry must be met. The otherwise separate tiewise and netwise data sets must each contain the same variable (arbitrarily called NETID in this article) that uniquely identifies each focal individual. In the tiewise data set, the NETID variable uniquely identifies the ego-centered network to which each network member belongs. If several network members belong to the same network, each of the network members will have the same NETID number. In the tiewise data set, the NETID variable is used to produce summary information about each network and to join this summary information with the information about focal individuals that is in the netwise data set. In the netwise data set, the NETID variable uniquely identifies the focal individual and his her network. ( Note on importing data . ) Each tie in the TIE data set should also have a unique TIEID. This is necessary for tie-wise analysis. A useful trick is to create the TIEID variable from a combination of TIENUM and NETID. TIENUM uniquely identifies the members of each network, numbering them within each network from "1,2,3, ... N". By combining the NETID and the TIENUM variables you get one new unique TIEID number for each tie in the entire data set (e.g., "14115") where the first three digits (e.g., "141") represent the NETID of the ego and the last two digits (e.g., "15") represent the TIENUM. Thus TIEID "14115" represents tie 15 of ego 141. At times this can give you useful information as when you want to identify the ties in all the networks that have very high frequencies of contact with focal individuals. (NETID * 100) + TIENUM =TIEID The "Aggregate" Procedure The SPSS AGGREGATE procedure computes summary statistics such as means across groups of cases and produces a new SPSS system file containing one case for each group. The variables of this aggregated file are the summary measures. This feature allows analysts to produce network compositional data such as the mean frequency of contact for each network, the percentage of network members who provide emotional support, and the number of network members who provide emotional support. (Note: Use separate working copies of the original data sets while doing data transformations so that you can always go back to your original variables in case you make a mistake or change your mind. To use the AGGREGATE procedure, three sets of information must be specified: The name of the new aggregated file: The OUTFILE statement defines and creates a new summary data set from the statistics that you want to have computed from specific TIE variable(s). We arbitrarily call this file: TIESUM. The variable(s) that define(s) the aggregated group: The BREAK subcommand defines the aggregated group. Each break group corresponds to one case in the new aggregated file. The BREAK statement specifies the variable(s) by which records will be grouped when computing statistics. The functions that create the new aggregated variable(s): Use regular SPSS commands to create new variables in the output file. Apply commands such as SUM or MEAN to variables in the TIE data set to create summary variables in the TIESUM output data set (see example below). This approach allows analysts to produce summary statistics for each ego-centered network. For example, instead of computing the mean frequency of contact for the entire sample of ties, analysts can compute separate means for each focal individual's network. Example Information about 343 network members is stored in the TIE file (the example is from Wellman 1992b). The following SPSS procedure creates the new outfile data set TIESUM, containing summary information about the 29 networks to which these 343 network members "belong". Note: Do not use the numbers in the above example ("1.", etc.) in your SPSS statement. They are merely guides to the explanation that follows this note. 1. GET FILE="C:\TIE.SAV". AGGREGATE 2. OUTFILE="C:\TIESUM.SAV" 3. BREAK=netid 4. mftf pemaid mctage = MEAN (ftf emaid ctage) sftf semaid = SUM (ftf emaid). 5. EXECUTE. 6. GET FILE="C:\TIESUM.SAV". VARIABLE LABELS mftf "mean ftf contact" pemaid "pct of emotional aid" etc. (Note: Other SPSS subcommands, such as MISSING or PRESORTED, are not discussed in this article.) Explanations: 1. The "GET FILE=" command indicates your input file, in this example: "C:\TIE.SAV". Always specify the file with a complete path (drive and directory) and enclose it in single or double quotation marks. ( back ) 2. In the second step you define an output file where aggregated data will be stored. The OUTFILE statement directs SPSS to create and store a new data set: "TIESUM.SAV". This data set will contain the summary statistics requested in the AGGREGATE procedure for each value of NETID (that is, each network). ( back ) 3. The BREAK subcommand specifies that statistics are to be computed separately for each value of the variable NETID. This is the crucial step. Since each of the 343 network members has one of 29 NETID values, summary statistics for each of the 29 networks will be computed for the variables listed in the fourth step of the procedure (see the next paragraph). Thus the BREAK statement transforms tie information into by-network summaries: one summary for each of the 29 ego-centered networks. ( back ) (Note on sorting your data file . ) 4. In this fourth step, there are three tie-level variables in the tie data set to be aggregated: the frequency of a network member's contact with ego, whether a network member provides emotional aid (defined as 0=no support, 1=provides support), and a network member's age. (Note: This "0 1" coding is a handy tool for using means to calculate the proportion of network members (or ties) who posses a given characteristic such as "provides emotional aid".) Each new variable in the aggregated file is created by applying an aggregate function to a variable in the active input file (here the active file is called "TIE.SAV"). SPSS requires that these new variables be entered in the same order as their tiewise counterparts in the statement that follow the "=" sign. If PEMAID is the second new variable to be defined, then EMAID must be the second source variable mentioned after the equal sign ("="). If you scramble the order or omit a variable name, your output will be horribly wrong. Even, it can be unobtrusively wrong. The new variables in the TIESUM data set are created by the MEAN and SUM operations. In the example, these are the mean frequency of contact of an ego with all network members, the percentage of an ego's network members who provide support, the mean age of the members of an ego's network, the total frequency of contact an ego has with network members, and the number of an ego's network members who provide support. Thus the new variable MFTF is computed by "=MEAN (ftf)", referring to the variable defined in the tiewise data set. Similarly, totals of variables can be computed by the SUM operation: "[newvarlist] = SUM [oldvarlist]". Thus SFTF equals the total amount of contact that all members of an ego-centered network have with its focal individual. In this example, we adopt the convention of keeping the variable names the same in both the TIE and TIESUM data set, except that they are preceded by either a "M" (mean) or "S" (sum or total). We also use a "P" prefix for mean variables that have been calculated from 0 1 binary codes in the tiewise data set. (Note on aggregating percentages ). The mean in such cases is also the proportion of ties in a network that have a particular characteristic, such as the proportion of ties that provide emotional aid. Although you can choose any names you want for such variables, conventions such as these help to keep track of things by associating the original tiewise variables with the newly-created netwise summary variables. These new variables are netwise summaries of the tiewise information for each focal individual. Thus, MFTF equals the mean face-to-face contact between a focal individual and the members of his her network. Since emotional support was coded 0 1 in TIE, the proportion of ties in each network that provide it are computed by the MEAN operation and exported as the PEMAID variable in the new TIESUM file. In another example, a new SFTF variable is created by the SUM operation of the initial FTF variable, representing the total amount of face-to-face contact between each focal individual and all members of his her network. AGGREGATE can also output other summary statistics. For example, you can calculate the standard deviation "SD (variable list)" to measure the SES and age heterogeneity of ego-centered networks. ( back ) 5. Some SPSS procedures use the EXECUTE command to force data reading. ( back ) 6. As the AGGREGATE procedure by default creates new variables without any labels, we recommend immediately using the usual SPSS labeling procedures to name the aggregated variables, as is done here. Note that in order to operate with the new file "TIESUM.SAV", you have to make it the active file: GET FILE="C:\TIESUM.SAV".( back ) Network Size Use AGGREGATE to calculate network size. One method is to create a new variable defined by the "N" function that counts the number of cases in a break group. AGGREGATE OUTFILE="C:\TIESUM.SAV" BREAK=netid netsize=N. This new variable, netsize represents the weighted numbers of all entries for each break group, that is in our example, for each network. Similarly, the function "NU" computes the unweighted numbers. Another method for calculating network size is to copy NETID to a new variable (arbitrarily called TEMP here) so that you can recode it without destroying it. (Use NETID for this because it should never have missing values.) Recode TEMP so that all non-missing values ="1". If you include TEMP in your AGGREGATE procedure, the SUM of TEMP will be the size of each network: AGGREGATE OUTFILE="C:\TIESUM.SAV" BREAK=netid netsize = SUM (temp). Using the same approach with more recoding will provide more specialized counts, such as the number of kin. Network Composition The approach described above has provided information about the composition of each ego-centered network. You can now use the "TIESUM.SAV" file directly to compare networks. In this example we use CORRELATIONS to correlate the mean frequency and total amount of face-to-face contact in each network with the proportion of network members who provide emotional aid. GET FILE = "C:\TIESUM.SAV". CORRELATIONS VARIABLES=mftf sftf pemaid. Linking Tie Information with Information about Focal Individuals and Network Structure With a "MATCH FILES" statement, you can combine the newly-created TIESUM data set with the NET data set that contains information about focal individuals and the structure of their networks. SPSS does this by "match merging" the TIESUM and NET data sets. It combines records that have the same value for the network identification variable (NETID). That is why analysts must make sure during data entry that both TIESUM and NET contain matching NETID values. NETID is in the original NET data set. It also is carried over automatically from TIE to TIESUM when it is used in the BREAK subcommand of the AGGREGATE procedure. Sort both files you want to merge by the break variable specified in the BY command. If you run the AGGREGATE procedure immediately before the MATCH FILES procedure, then AGGREGATE will sort the cases itself. In any case, we recommend sorting both input files by the break variable (e.g., NETID, in ascending order) before you run a MATCH FILE procedure. If you save your data sorted "by netid," you will not have to sort it again. GET FILE="C:\NET.SAV". SORT CASES BY netid (A). SAVE OUTFILE= "C:\NET.SAV" COMPRESSED. GET FILE="C:\TIESUM.SAV". SORT CASES BY netid (A). MATCH FILES TABLE=* FILE="C:\NET.SAV" BY netid MAP. SAVE OUTFILE= "C:\NETALL.SAV" COMPRESSED. The preceding commands create a new netwise data set named "NETALL.SAV" formed by the merger of the TIESUM and NET data sets. The star symbol in " TABLE=*" indicates that the table of the new outfile "NETALL.SAV" is defined by your active system file (the one you recalled last), in our example "TIESUM.SAV". SPSS allows you to apply the MAP subcommand, which displays a list of variables in the new data set, their order, the file from which they came, and their original names. The MAP subcommand follows the BY subcommand. SPSS also allows you to apply the KEEP command " KEEP=[varlist]" to keep only those variables that you need for the present operation in the active file. This saves computer time. Or, if more convenient, you can use the DROP command to exclude unneeded variables. (...) MATCH FILES TABLE=* FILE="C:\NET.SAV" RENAME= (oldvar=newvar) BY NETID DROP=mftf MAP. SAVE OUTFILE = "C:\NETALL.SAV" COMPRESSED. Now you are in a position to examine such matters as the relationship between focal individuals' gender (originally located in NET) and the percentage of emotional aid in their networks (created in TIESUM): GET FILE="C:\NETALL.SAV". CORRELATIONS VARIABLES=gender pemaid. You can also use information about focal individuals to study subsamples of networks. For example, the following will do correlations only for the networks of men: GET FILE="C:\NETALL.SAV". TEMPORARY. SELECT IF (gender EQ 1). CORRELATIONS VARIABLES=mftf sftf pemaid. The TEMPORARY command ensures that the SELECT IF statement will only be applied to the operation that follows it. If you want to export your selected data into a separate file of male cases only ("MEN.SAV"), then you do not need to apply the TEMPORARY command: GET FILE="C:\NET.SAV". SORT CASES BY netid (A). SAVE OUTFILE= "C:\NET.SAV" COMPRESSED. GET FILE="C:\TIESUM.SAV". SORT CASES BY netid (A). MATCH FILES TABLE=* FILE="C:\NET.SAV" BY netid MAP. SELECT IF (gender EQ 1). SAVE OUTFILE= "C:\MEN.SAV" COMPRESSED. Another possibility is to apply the SPLIT FILE procedure. For example, to get separate sets of correlations for men and women, first sort the cases BY GENDER: GET FILE="C:\NETALL.SAV". SORT CASES BY gender. SPLIT FILE BY gender. CORRELATIONS VARIABLES=mftf sftf pemaid. If you apply the SPLIT FILE command, either remember to turn it off after the procedure ("SPLIT FILE off") or use the TEMPORARY command for every SPLIT FILE procedure. Integrating Tiewise, Individual and Network Analysis Analysts may also want to retain the tiewise organization of the TIE data set, but supplement it with information about focal individuals (NET data) and network structure (NETALL data). For example, Wellman (1992b) needed to know the gender of focal individuals and of network members in order to compare ties between men, between women, and between men and women. The sample size in this example is 343 ties and not the 29 networks produced through the AGGREGATE and MATCH FILES examples described above. In this example, the NETALL data set is merged with the tiewise TIE data set to form a new data set arbitrarily called TIEFOCAL. As in the preceding example, "MATCH FILES BY netid" associates the appropriate records in TIE and NETALL data sets (which itself includes the NET data). (Here too, you have to take care that both input files are pre-sorted by the same variable.) In this situation, if the focal individual has 10 ties, the information from NETALL will be copied 10 times and merged with each network member's record. The merged TIEFOCAL data set will have 343 records, like TIE, but it will be larger because the focal individual's information and the summary information (both stored in NETALL) is repeated for each member of his her network. GET FILE="C:\NETALL.SAV". SORT CASES BY netid (A). SAVE OUTFILE= "C:\NETALL.SAV" COMPRESSED. GET FILE="C:\TIE.SAV". SORT CASES BY netid (A). SAVE OUTFILE= "C:\TIE.SAV" COMPRESSED. GET FILE="C:\NETALL.SAV". SORT CASES BY netid (A). MATCH FILES TABLE=* FILE="C:\TIE.SAV" BY netid. SAVE OUTFILE="C:\TIEFOCAL.SAV" COMPRESSED. Notes 1. This approach will work only if the original TIE data set is used and not the summary TIESUM data set that AGGREGATE creates. 2. This will work only if similar variables in the original TIE and NETALL data sets have different names. Otherwise, disaster can strike as when a TIE variable named SEX in the TIE data set (network member's sex) is merged with a NET variable named SEX in the NETALL data set (focal individual's sex). We suggest using consistent, unique prefixes (e.g., TSEX and FSEX) in the original TIE and NET data sets. If similar variables in both data sets have the same name, rename them applying the SPSS subcommand: " RENAME=(oldvar=newvar)" following the FILE subcommand when you merge your data sets. For example, if both data sets contain the variable SEX, rename the variable in the TIE.SAV file using the following commands: GET FILE="C:\NET.SAV" SORT CASES BY netid (A) . MATCH FILES TABLE=* FILE="C:\TIE.SAV" RENAME=(sex=tsex) BY NETID. 3. You can reduce the size of the merged TIEFOCAL data set by using a KEEP or DROP statement to limit the number of variables that will be merged. This is especially useful in reducing the size of the NETALL data set because its variables will be repeated for many (TIE) records when TIEFOCAL is created. Capabilities and Limitations 1. It is easy to link summary data to information about the characteristics of focal individuals. Moreover, you need not make linkage decisions ahead of time. At any time, analysts can choose to combine different characteristics of focal individuals and networks. It is also easy to focus on the ties or networks of specific types of focal individuals (such as men). 2. To identify focal individuals, ties, and networks that have high or low values on a specific variable, use the "SELECT IF (variable=value)" command for analyses. For example, Wellman and Wortley (1990) used this option to identify those focal individuals whose networks provide very high or low levels of emotional support. Precede each SELECT IF, SPLIT FILE or DO IF command by the TEMPORARY command, unless you want to export data in a separate file. Alternatively, you can split specific files while using the AGGREGATE procedure. To do it this way, do not use the SPLIT FILE command, but define the variable(s) to be split (e.g., "gender") as the break variable(s) ahead of any other variable(s). AGGREGATE will produce one file, but with separate output for each value of the break variable. 3. Keeping two separate data sets is more efficient than combining tie and network data into one set because it avoids the repetition of individual, tie, and network information. Moreover, separate tie and network data sets permit doing more efficient computer runs when only one data set is needed. 4. The general approach described here can be extended. For example, Wellman and Wellman (1992) linked TIE and NET data with a third data set containing information about marital relationships. They used SAS software with multiple UNIVARIATE and MERGE procedures to accomplish this (Figure 2). Applying the AGGREGATE and MATCH FILES procedures for SPSS described in this paper would also do this. FIGURE 2 5. The confirmatory statistics produced by SPSS (such as correlation coefficients and their associated significance levels) assume that each record is an independent unit of analysis (Wellman 1998). This may not be the case in ego-centered network analysis. To be sure, focal individuals and networks often are independent units. Hence analyses using NET and TIESUM rarely have this problem. However, the ties of a focal individual are inherently not independent from each other; they are clustered in the focal individual's network. Therefore, a sample of many focal individuals' ties -- as stored in TIE or TIEFOCAL -- is not a fully independent sample even if the focal individuals were sampled independently. The variance in such data sets should be lower than in a fully independent sample. It may be possible to treat a tiewise data set as a cluster sample. A relatively new method, multilevel analysis (often done as hierarchical linear modeling) promises to help deal with this problem (Bryk and Raudenbush 1992; Snijders 1994; Frank and Wellman 1998; Thomse and van Tilburg 1998; Van Diujn, van Busschbach and Snijders 1998). 6. It is difficult to use SPSS or SAS to calculate measures of whole network structure without writing specialized matrix routines. Use UCINET (Borgatti, Everett and Freeman 1999) or MULTINET (Richards 1994) instead. Analysts then can add structural measures calculated with these programs to the NET data set for further analyses using SPSS or SAS. Footnotes 1) Procedures and syntax presented in this article have been tested for SPSS for Windows versions 6.1.2., 7.0, 7.5 and 8.0, as well as for "SPSS 6.1 for Power Macintosh". There may be slightly different notations for other SPSS versions, including versions for mainframes. If your ego and alter data are initially stored in the same data set, you will first have to separate them into two data sets, as described by Wolf (1993). It is better to enter the data at the start in separate tiewise and netwise data sets. ( back ) 2) Importing data 2a) There is no problem if the data entry and editing are done within SPSS. But if you edited your original data set in Microsoft Word and saved it in "tab-delimited" format, you may have some problems importing your data set into SPSS using the "File Read ASCII data" menu item. It may be helpful to run the data entry directly from your SPSS syntax file using the following command: GET TRANSLATE FILE="C:\filename" TYPE=TAB MAP. 2b) Or, you can change the filename extension ".txt" to ".dat" using the DOS copy command "copy C:\filename.txt C:\filename.dat". This procedure eliminates unwanted special characters of the "Microsoft Word" program and allows you to import your data using the SPSS menu bar. 2c) If you use "Windows EXCEL",save the data as "single sheet" in "EXCEL 4" format and import them with the following SPSS command: GET TRANSLATE FILE="C:\filename.xls" TYPE=XLS MAP FIELDNAMES. The FIELDNAMES statement forces the data entry procedure to read the first row of the EXCEL file as variable names. ( back ) 3) Unlike the SAS UNIVARIATE procedure, you do not have to sort your input file, because SPSS does this by routine. However, storing the data permanently in one specific order can save time and avoid problems. In our example, we would normally store by the ascending values of the NETID variable so that focal individual 1 comes first, focal individual 2 comes second, and focal individual 343 comes last. The commands are SORT CASES BY netid . SAVE OUTFILE="filename" COMPRESSED" . As long as you do not save your file again, it will remain sorted "by netid" every time you recall it with the GET FILE command. ( back ) 4) SPSS also allows you to compute percentages for non-binary variables, using the following functions: "PGT (varlist, value)" for percentages "greater than" the specified value, "PIN (varlist, value1, value2)" for percentages of cases "between value1 and value2", or ... PLT (for cases "less than ...") or ... POUT (for cases "not between value1 and value2"). For example, the statement " pgtctage = PGT(ctage 40)" computes the percentage of all cases where the variable "ctage" has a value greater than "40", i.e., the percentage of network members in each network who are older than 40 years.

GOSSET
A general-purpose program for experimental designs, by N. J. A. Sloane and R.H. Hardin. Free download of beta-test C source files.
Gosset home page GOSSET: A GENERAL-PURPOSE PROGRAM FOR DESIGNING EXPERIMENTS N. J. A. Sloane and R. H. Hardin Internet and Network Systems Research Center, ATT Shannon Labs, Florham Park, N.J. 07932-0971 U.S.A. This is the home page for Gosset. It contains sections called OVERVIEW OF GOSSET GETTING THE FILES INSTALLATION UPDATES AND BUG FIXES APPLICATIONS FOR FURTHER INFORMATION COPYRIGHT Last modified May 07, 2003. This replaces the "README" file that was included with older releases of Gosset. OVERVIEW OF GOSSET Gosset is a flexible and powerful program for constructing experimental designs. It runs under Unix, Linux and Mac OS X. The following are some of its features. Variables may be discrete or continuous (or both). Discrete variables may be numeric or symbolic (or both). Continuous variables may range over a cube or a ball (or both). The variables may be required to satisfy linear equalities or inequalities. The model to be fitted may be any low degree polynomial (e.g. a quadratic). Much more general models can also be used - see Section 3.12 of the manual. The number of observations is specified by the user. The design may be required to include a specified set of points. (so a sequence of designs can be found, each of which is optimal given that the earlier measurements have been made). The region where the model is to be fitted need not be the same as the region where measurements are to be made (so the designs can be used for extrapolation). The following types of designs can be requested: I-, A-, D- or E-optimal, the same but with protection against loss of one trial, or packings (if no model is available). Blocked designs and designs with correlated errors can also be obtained. The algorithm is powerful enough to routinely minimize functions of 1000 variables (e.g. can find optimal or nearly optimal designs for a quadratic model involving 12 variables). An extensive library of precomputed optimal designs is included for linear and quadratic designs in the cube, ball and simplex, involving up to 14 variables. The user does not have to specify starting points for the search. The user also has control over how much effort is expended by the algorithm, and can if desired monitor the progress of the search. Applications so far include VLSI production, conductivity of diamond films, growth of protein crystals, flow through a catalytic converter, laser welding, etc. Gosset is described in more detail in the following documents.

Sloane, "A New Approach to the Construction of Optimal Designs", J. Statistical Planning and Inference, vol. 37, 1993, pp. 339-369 [ Abstract , postscript or pdf ]. R. H. Hardin and N. J. A. Sloane, "Computer-Generated Minimal (and Larger) Response Surface Designs: (I) The Sphere" ( Abstract , pdf , ps ). R. H. Hardin and N. J. A. Sloane, "Computer-Generated Minimal (and Larger) Response Surface Designs: (II) The Cube" ( Abstract , pdf , ps ). GETTING THE FILES For a limited time you can download a beta-test version of Gosset at no charge. We are doing this for several reasons: to collect feedback from users to collect information about applications to encourage the use of Design of Experiments in industry Of course, "anything free comes with no guarantee". If you download the program, please send email to Neil Sloane at this address: njas@research.att.com , giving your name, affiliation, and postal address, for our records. If you find it useful in some real application, or teaching a course, we would like to get some comments. For example, a real-life example of how you used it (of course, change any proprietary data). If you publish anything that makes use of a design that was partly obtained using Gosset, please cite Gosset, just as you would acknowledge a design that a colleague constructed for you. The citation could read something like this: R. H. Hardin and N. J. A. Sloane, GOSSET: A general-purpose program for designing experiments, www.research.att.com ~njas gosset . Also we would appreciate it if you could inform us about such a paper. The files can be obtained from the ftp site ftp: ftp.research.att.com You need to obtain two files: index.html (this file) and codemart.cpio (about 5 megabytes) Go to directory "dist", then "njas", then "gosset", where you will find the files. Warning: it seems to take some browsers a long time to find this site! Memo to colleagues: if you are inside the Labs firewall, you need to set "Use Passive FTP (for firewall and DSL modem compatibility)" This setting is under Tools Internet Options Advanced INSTALLATION The following instructions are an updated version of those in Section 9 of the manual. System administrators please note: if you are installing gosset for multiple users, the instructions are slightly different - see below . INSTALLING A PRIVATE COPY OF GOSSET First choose a base directory for gosset. Subdirectories will be created off this for work on individual problems. Place the files index.html (this file) and codemart.cpio in the base directory. Change directory to the base directory. To print the manual, which is about 130 pages long, type $ lp manual.ps (possibly replacing "lp" by your local printer command, e.g. "lpr"). (If you view this postscript file with ghostview, set the "PageSize" option, the 6th button at the top, to "Letter" rather than "Automatic" or "BBox") Extract everything in codemart.cpio : $ cpio -icu codemart.cpio (some users have found that it is necessary to use $ cpio -iu codemart.cpio instead) and compile several files: $ cc -w M*.c -o gosset -lm $ rm * vtrace * vvv * moments * interp (The latter command is needed only if you already had a copy of gosset. It removes some out-of-date files.) The archive file codelib.a does not need to be touched. To find a design, start by entering gosset : $ gosset The program responds by asking you to name a working subdirectory: please type 'cd something' to name a local directory for your work At this point you will probably enter the specifications for a new design - see Sects. 2, 3, .... of the manual. INSTALLING GOSSET FOR MULTIPLE USERS First choose a directory for the gosset source files, say u g sources. Place index.html and codemart.cpio in u g sources Change directory to u g sources. To print the manual, which is about 130 pages long, type $ lp manual.ps (possibly replacing "lp" by your local printer command, e.g. "lpr"). (If you view this postscript file with ghostview, set the "PageSize" option, the 6th button at the top, to "Letter" rather than "Automatic" or "BBox") Extract everything in codemart.cpio : $ cpio -icu codemart.cpio (some users have found that it is necessary to use $ cpio -iu codemart.cpio instead) and compile several files: $ cc -DGOSSETSRC=\" u g sources\" -DCODELIB=\" u g sources\" M*.c -o gosset -lm which will create a version of gosset that expects the source files to be in u g sources. The escapes are necessary on the quotes, because they are part of the definition. The executable file gosset can be moved anywhere, say into usr local bin , and can be executed from anywhere. Be warned, however - working directories will be created by gosset wherever the user is, instead of from a single base directory. So the user must exercise some discipline when invoking gosset, to avoid chaos in the directory structure. If gosset was already installed on your system, users should execute $ rm vtrace vvv moments interp in each working subdirectory, to remove out-of-date files. The archive file codelib.a does not need to be touched. When someone wants to find a design, they change to a base directory (typically $HOME gosset), from which working subdirectories will be created, and enter gosset: $ gosset The program responds by asking them to name a working subdirectory: please type 'cd something' to name a local directory for your work At this point they will probably enter the specifications for a new design - see Sects. 2, 3, .... of the manual. UPDATES AND BUG FIXES The current version (May 07 2003) incorporates several changes to fix error messages produced by different C compilers. As C compilers have evolved they have become more picky. Running Gosset often produces harmless but irritating warning messages from the C compiler. To avoid this, we recommend that you compile the source files with cc -w (as shown above) and that you run Gosset with the command: gosset 'cflags -w' If you forget, and just run "gosset", start by typing cflags -w and we also usually type compiler=gcc prompt % Bill Kappele (Bill(AT)mathoptions.com) has written a graphical interface that creates an input file for Gosset. It can be run in Windows or Unix Linux. A Tcl Tk interpreter is required. It can be found on his website APPLICATIONS There have been three kinds of applications: Applications to industrial problems (It is inevitable that the most spectacular applications do not get published!)

Pages for old conferences are likely to have expired, but the listing of dates and locations, etc., may be of use for historical purposes. Conferences in 2004 Conferences in 2003 Conferences in 2002 Conferences in 2001 Conferences in 2000-1997 Conference Series Archives Archive sites for conference series provide a valuable record. Links for several appear below. Archives include such things as lists of talks, participants, and abstracts; even sometimes photos. If anyone knows of archive sites for other conference series in discrete mathematics, please let me know (send information to west @ math . uiuc . edu). The community would also appreciate volunteers to set up such sites. I can post an address here so past attendees can contact the volunteer to offer material (printed material saved by past attendees can be scanned and posted). Good candidates for such sites would be EuroComb, AWOCA (Australasian Worshop on Combinatorial Algorithms), CTW (Graphs and Combinatorial Optimization), Ontario Combinatorics Workshops, the Cumberland Conference on Combinatorics and Computing, the Clemson Mini-Conference, the MCCCC, the Southeastern International Conferences, Graph Theory Day in New York, etc. I'm sure there are also many other series that would benefit from having such sites.

Thirteenth Midwestern Conference on Combinatorics, Cryptography and Computing,
Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois, USA; 14--16 October 1999. Abstracts (DVI,PS).
MCCCC SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT (Updated 10.6.99) Thirteenth Midwestern Conference on COMBINATORICS, CRYPTOGRAPHY, AND COMPUTING Thursday, Oct. 14 - Saturday, Oct. 16, 1999 at Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois You are warmly invited to participate in the Thirteenth Midwestern Conference on Combinatorics, Cryptography, and Computing to be held October 14-16, 1999 at Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois. The aim is to bring together researchers in all areas of pure and applied combinatorics, including graph theory, design theory, enumeration, cryptography and combinatorial computing. The conference will feature six invited one-hour lectures. There will also be sessions for 20-minute contributed papers. INVITED SPEAKERS Joseph Gallian , University of Minnesota-Duluth, Graph Labelings Jeannette Janssen, Dalhousie University, List-Colourings of Edges and the Asymptotics of Vizing's Conjecture Rolf Rees, Memorial University of Newfoundland, A Survey of Results on Mandatory Representation Designs Christopher Rodger , Auburn University, Graph Amalgamations and their Uses Douglas Stinson , University of Waterloo, Combinatorial Methods for Traceability John van Rees , University of Manitoba, Enumeration of Inequivalent Binary Self-Dual Codes of Length 32 and 34 To retrieve the abstracts in dvi mode mc4abstracts.dvi To retrieve the abstracts in ps mode mc4abstracts.ps SCHEDULE SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS: Authors who wish to contribute 20-minute talks are invited to submit an abstract of at most 300 words. We prefer abstracts to be written in LaTeX, but any reasonable electronic form is preferable to a "hard copy." To ensure consideration, abstracts should be e-mailed by October 1, 1999. They will be reviewed by the organizing committee and all acceptances will be promptly confirmed by e-mail. All invited speakers will be asked to contribute versions of their talks for inclusion in one volume of the Journal of Combinatorial Mathematics and Combinatorial Computing (JCMCC), and other speakers are invited to submit their papers for inclusion in the same volume. Acceptance will depend upon usual refereeing standards, though it should be noted that survey papers will also be welcome if they closely follow survey talks presented at the conference. For consideration, papers should be submitted to Saad El-Zanati (address below) by December 31, to avoid the Y2K bug. The submitted papers will be edited for JCMCC by Saad El-Zanati and Roger Eggleton. DEADLINES: Early Registration: Sept. 17, 1999 Most Hotel Rooms: Sept. 22, 1999 Submission of Abstracts: Oct. 1, 1999 Note: Abstracts received after Oct. 1 will continue to be considered while there are time slots available in the program. REGISTRATION: Conference registration fees are $85 if paid prior to September 17, 1999. Late registration fees are $100. Registration fees are reduced to $30 for unemployed or retired mathematicians and graduate students.

Symmetric Functions and Macdonald Polynomials
A central topic of study in Algebraic Combinatorics. Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, England; January-June 2001.
INI Programme SFM Institute Home Page Programmes Web-Seminars Programme Home Seminars Workshops Participants Long Stay Short Stay Additional Links Contacts Mailing List Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences Symmetric Functions and Macdonald Polynomials 8 Jan - 6 Jul 2001 Organisers: Professor P Hanlon (Michigan), Professor IG Macdonald (QMW), Professor AO Morris (Aberystwyth) Programme theme The importance of symmetric functions and the representation theory of Hecke algebras and the symmetric groups derives in part from their applicability in a wide range of scientific and mathematical disciplines. Within the theory of symmetric functions, this programme will focus on a particular topic, the Macdonald polynomials, which have especially wide-ranging mathematical interconnections. The goal of the program will be to unify the diverse approaches to the study of these polynomials. n the 1980's, I.G.Macdonald formulated a series of conjectures which predicted the constant terms of expressions that involve an important new class of symmetric functions called the Macdonald polynomials. Since their introduction, these conjectures and polynomials have been a central topic of study in Algebraic Combinatorics. Of particular note has been the variety of approaches used in efforts to solve the conjectures or to find an algebraic or geometric interpretation for the Macdonald polynomials themselves. Different approaches involve double affine Hecke algebras, homology of nilpotent Lie algebras, generalized traces of Lie algebra representations and diagonal actions of the symmetric group on polynomial rings in two sets of variables. In this programme we will attempt to unify these different approaches to the Macdonald Conjectures in a way that allows for a significant interpretation of the Macdonald polynomials and settles some of the outstanding conjectures that have resulted from this work. Links with other areas such as algebraic geometery, Lie algebras, non-commutative algebra, mathematical physics and mathematical statistics will be emphasised. Workshops will be arranged in order to foster existing and potential applications in these and other subjects.

Random Structures
Two linked workshops within the Computation, Combinatorics and Probability programme at the Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, UK. Part I: Combinatorial and Computational Aspects of Statistical Physics; 26--30 August 2002. Part II: Random Graphs and Structures; 2--6 September 2002.
RANDOM STRUCTURES Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK RANDOM STRUCTURES comprising the linked workshops COMBINATORIAL COMPUTATIONAL ASPECTS OF STATISTICAL PHYSICS (26 - 30 AUGUST 2002) RANDOM GRAPHS STRUCTURES (2 - 6 SEPTEMBER 2002) in association with the Newton Institute programme entitled Computation, Combinatorics and Probability (29 July to 20 December 2002) Programme Abstracts Participants Organisers: Bla Bollobs, (Memphis), Martin Dyer (Leeds), Mark Jerrum (Edinburgh), Alan Sokal (New York) and Peter Winkler (Bell Labs) Theme of Workshop: The heading "random structures" is intended to cover both the finite (random graphs, partial orders, etc.) and infinite (configurations of some physical model on an infinite lattice). Our aim is to bring together combinatorialists, probabilists, physicists and theoretical computer scientists to engage in an interdisciplinary meeting that will study random structures from various directions. Structure: There will be two linked workshops: Combinatorial and computational aspects of statistical physics and Random graphs and structures. The overarching theme that unites these two is that of phase transition, broadly interpreted. A rough distinction between the two workshops might be that the first deals with phase transitions in infinite systems (e.g., the Ising model on the 2-dimensional square lattice), and the second with "phase transitions" in finite structure (e.g., random graphs or random partial orders). However, this distinction is certainly not intended to be a hard-and-fast. Computational questions - such as the extent to which phase transitions may coincide with the boundary between tractable and intractable - will certainly be addressed. Tentative Participants: B Bollobs, GR Brightwell, ME Dyer, L Goldberg, G Grimmett, S Janson, MR Jerrum, J Kahn, M Karonski, M Karpinski, WS Kendall, C McDiarmid, B Pittel, D Randall, P Tetali, A Thomason, E Vigoda, P Winkler. Location and Cost The conference will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court . The workshop package, costing 715, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Monday 26 August until breakfast on Saturday 7 September 2002, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place. Numbers will be restricted to about 80 participants. This event has been awarded MathFIT support provided by the London Mathematical Society and EPSRC. Application Form: Please complete and return the application form to Tracey Andrew . Closing Date for the receipt of applications is 30 April 2002 Further information Please e-mail your enquiries to Tracey Andrew Travel and Local Information How to reach the Newton Institute | Local Information | Computation, Combinatorics and Probability programme | Newton Institute Home Page |

The programme will explore two particularly fruitful interfaces between computer science and mathematics, namely those with combinatorics and probability theory. Although no interdisciplinary work within the broad area delineated by the title will be excluded, the following themes will receive special emphasis. Randomised algorithms. The design and analysis of algorithms that make random choices; also deterministic algorithms when run on random instances.The theoretical basis here includes the study of parameters connected with random walks on graphs and the relationships between them. "Phase transitions" in statistical physics and computer science. The rigorous treatment not only of infinite random systems,but also of (infinite sequences of) finite systems that exhibit phenomena akin to phase transitions. Particular attention willbe paid to the link between phase transitions and computational (in)tractability. Random graphs and structures. The analysis of finite random structures,of which the Erdos-Renyi random graph model is the primal example.Algorithmic aspects will receive special attention. Probabilistic analysis of distributed systems. The study of the behaviour of distributed systems in the absence of global control. Specific topics include contention resolution protocols and Nash equilibria of agents in networks (the Internet).The theoretical basis here includes Lyapunov functions and game theory.

The combinatorial data associated with an arrangement of hyperplanes has proven to be core data for many algebraic and topological issues in arrangement theory. Conversely, the occurrence of certain combinatorial structures in arrangement theory has inspired research on generalizations in purely combinatorial settings. The following topics will be central to the presentations and discussions during this workshop: combinatorial models for arrangements oriented matroids combinatorics of arrangement compactifications phylogenetic trees topology of partially ordered sets combinatorial representation theory random walks on arrangements Confirmed speakers: Christos Athanasiadis Helene Barcelo Ken Brown Graham Denham Persi Diaconis Eva-Maria Feichtner Phil Hanlon Dmitry Kozlov Nikolai Mnev Alexander Postnikov Jessica Sidman Richard Stanley Hiroaki Terao Sasha Varchenko Anatoly Vershik Volkmar Welker Monday, November 1 8:30 - 9:15 Registration 9:15 - 9:30 Welcome and Introduction 9:30 - 10:30 Ken Brown Hyperplane face semigroups and their algebras. 10:30 - 11:00 Morning Tea (Sixth floor) 11:00 - 12:00 Persi Diaconis Are there q-deformations of hyperplanes that are useful for shuffling? 12:00 - 2:00 Lunch Break 3:00 - 4:00 Jessica Sidman, MSRI Evans Lecture: Equations defining subspace arrangements. 4:15 5:00 Richard Stanley, MSRI Evans Lecture The characteristic polynomial of a hyperplane arrangement.

Please park in lot 64 located between the CoRE Building and the Werblin Recreation Center. Important Reimbursement Information Attendees who have been offered support should keep two rules in mind. Reimbursement for air travel can only be made for travel on US Flag Carriers, REGARDLESS OF COST. (For example, travel on airlines such as United, Continental, USAir, and others that are United States based are allowable. Travel on airlines such as Lufthansa, SAS, Air Canada and other airlines based outside the US cannot be reimbursed by DIMACS.) The second rule to keep in mind is to get original receipts for all reimbursable expenses. If you're coming from abroad, check the latest visa requirements (they are changing all the time) and get an early start on obtaining a visa.

SIAM Conference on Discrete Mathematics (DM04)
Discrete mathematics is a branch of the mathematical sciences, with a wide range of challenging research problems and important applications in industry. Nashville, TN, USA; 13--16 June 2004.
SIAM Conference on Discrete Mathematics Site best viewed with IE 6.0, Netscape 6.0, or Mozilla 1.4 or better Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Discrete Mathematics (SIAG DM) About the Conference Discrete mathematics is a branch of the mathematical sciences, with a wide range of challenging research problems and important applications in industry. Discrete mathematics has applications to all fields of computer science, and to the physical and biological sciences. It is used extensively in telecommunications, information processing and manufacturing, and many businesses and industries use techniques of discrete optimization to improve the efficiency of their operations. Discrete mathematics is a dynamic field in both theory and applications. Researchers in discrete mathematics have established important connections with mainstream areas of pure and applied mathematics, and as a consequence, research techniques and problems are drawn from a wide range of different fields, including algebra, topology, geometry, probability, analysis, and logic. The purpose of this conference is to highlight the major theoretical advances in the field, the development of new tools for discrete mathematics, and the most significant of the new applications of discrete mathematics to problems arising in industry and business. The conference also seeks to bring together participants from the many different environments where discrete mathematics is developed and applied. Conference Themes Discrete mathematics: Combinatorics Graph theory and matroids Combinatorial algorithms Coding theory and cryptology Ordered sets and its connections to other disciplines, including: Computer science Computational biology Optimization Geometry Topology Organizing Committee Mark Ellingham (chair), Vanderbilt University Rob Calderbank, ATT Labs - Research William Cook, Georgia Institute of Technology Jim Haglund, University of Pennsylvania Penny Haxell, University of Waterloo, Canada Monika Henzinger, Google, Inc Rolf Mhring, Technische Universitt, Berlin, Germany Ron Shamir, Tel Aviv University, Israel William T.

ANALCO04
The First Workshop on Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics. Held in conjunction with ALENEX04 and SODA04. New Orleans, LA, USA; 10 January 2004.
The First Workshop on Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics The First Workshop on Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO04) The First Workshop on Analytic Algorithmics and Combinatorics (ANALCO04) will be held in New Orleans on January 10, 2004, at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel. The aim of the ANALCO workshop is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the analysis of algorithms and associated combinatorial structures. We invite both papers that study properties of fundamental combinatorial structures that arise in practical computational applications (such as permutations, trees, strings, tries, and graphs) and papers that address the precise analysis of algorithms for processing such structures, including: average-case analysis; analysis of moments, extrema, and distributions; and probabilistic analysis of randomized algorithms. Submissions that present significant new information about classic algorithms are welcome, as are analyses of new algorithms that present unique analytic challenges. We also invite submissions that address tools and techniques for the analysis of algorithms and combinatorial structures, both mathematical and computational. The scientific program will include ample time for discussion and debate of topics in this area. This workshop precedes the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms (SODA04) being held January 11-13, 2004. The workshop will take place on the same day as the Sixth Annual Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX04). Since researchers in both fields are approaching the problem of learning detailed information about the performance of particular algorithms, we expect that interesting synergies will develop. The proceedings of ALENEX and ANALCO will be published as a single volume. A paper that has been reviewed and accepted for presentation at SODA is not eligible for submission to ANALCO. We recognize, however, that some research projects spawn multiple papers that elaborate on different aspects of the work. We are willing to respond to inquiries about SODA, ALENEX, and ANALCO papers that may overlap. Inquires regarding ANALCO may be sent to workshop organizer Bob Sedgewick at rs@cs.princeton.edu .

Main speakers Arrigo Bonisoli Matthew Brown Hans Dobbertin Gary Ebert Ernest Shult Felipe Voloch Additional Information List of Participants updated: Jan.20, 2003 Timetable: Download as PS-file or Download as PDF-file new: Jan. 7, 2003 Travel information updated: Jan. 24, 2003 Abstracts: Download as PS-file or Download as PDF-file new: Jan. 24, 2003 Venue The conference will take place at Kloster Irsee , an early 18th century monastery which has been transformed into a high class conference centre, preserving many of the original late baroque features, including a beautiful church. It is set in the attractive little town of Irsee in the northern part of the Allgu, a few kilometres from Kaufbeuren. The facilities include a bar (in the historic cellars and serving the local Klosterbru beer), table tennis, pool table, etc. Travel Irsee is about 7 kilometres from Kaufbeuren, which has direct train connections to both Augsburg and Munich; from Kaufbeuren it is simplest to take a taxi. It would be advisable to fly into Munich airport ; we might also be able to arrange a direct bus transport from there at a reasonable price. By car, Irsee is easily accessible from the Stuttgart-Munich and the Lindau-Munich motorways. Accommodation Kloster Irsee has 62 single rooms and 19 double rooms; so we would be able to accommodate a few accompanying persons. The rooms have all modern amenities: all are en-suite, with phones, minibar and the possibility of internet connection, but excluding TV which is only available on special request. Duration Arrival time is from 3 p.m. on Sunday 16 February. The first session will begin on Monday morning and the last session will end before dinner Friday 21 February. Participants are expected to leave Saturday morning; we can also arrange for a limited number of rooms to be available till Sunday morning. Cost The conference fee is 150 Euro (reduced to 100 Euro for accompanying persons); this includes the proceedings volume, the formal conference dinner and a Bavarian evening in the cellars. Accommodation and all meals will come to 720 Euro in a single room, and to 630 Euro in a double room. However, it is hoped to subsidise this for some or all participants, depending on the outcome of grant applications. Abstracts Please submit by 10 November 2002 an abstract of between one half and a whole page, in LaTeX, modifying the attached sample file . Abstracts should be sent to James by e-mail as below. Response We would be grateful for a reply by 1 July 2002. If you wish to book a double room, please indicate with whom you want to share it. Payment for both the conference fee and accommodation should be made by credit card and will be processed via the Kloster Irsee administration. If you intend to come please fill in the attached registration form (including your credit card information); your card will only be charged shortly before the conference. If credit card information is sent by email, the message will be deleted immediately afterwards. We have to confirm the final number of rooms needed by Christmas 2002; till then, there is no penalty for cancellation. In case of cancellation between 1 January 2003 and 14 February 2003, Kloster Irsee will charge 50 % of the accommodation costs; in case of cancellation after 14 February, the entire cost will be charged. Hence we can only waive the registration fee in such cases. By sending in your registration, you agree to these conditions.

Organizers: Bela Bollobas Cambridge, UK; Memphis, USA Beifang Chen HKUST, Hong Kong Email: mabfchen@ust.hk Fax: (852) 2358-1643 The Programs DVI version PostScript version Other Information All presentations will take place in Lecture Theatre C, a few minutes walk from the accommodation. Sports facilities on campus include an outdoor swimming pool, Squash courts, table-tennis, etc., and are available to those staying on-campus. There is a small supermarket, an ATM that should allow you to get money from your credit card, and various restaurants on campus. More information on the conference site, including detailed information on how to get there, is available in our local guide . HKUST is a bit far from the trendy tourist areas of Hong Kong (at least 30 minutes by taxi, or 45-60 minutes by bus and underground), and so we would recommend staying on-campus. If you don't mind the commute, or if you wish to extend your stay, there is no shortage of hotels in Hong Kong, and current room rates are quite reasonable. The Hong Kong Tourist Association maintains a good list of hotels , and many hotels can even be booked on-line. Typical tourist areas are Tsim Sha Tsui or Tsim Sha Tsui East . If you wish to stay on Hong Kong Island or in the New Territories, consider that the morning traffic will mean that you'll have to get up early to make it to the first session. There are two hotels selected by Dr. BF Chen for your reference. You can contact them directly (quoting the conference name) by email or fax for reservation. You can obtain detail accommodation in HKUST Campus at our web site: http: www.ab.ust.hk cso home_vc_frame.htm The registration desk will be open on Thursday, 15 August 2002 9:00am-3:0pm in front of Lecture Theatre C , and on Friday, 16 August 2002 9:00am-12:00am at the same place.

Seventh North Carolina Mini-Conference on Graph Theory, Combinatorics and Computing
Appalachian State University, Boone, NC, USA; 12 April 2002.
Seventh North Carolina Mini-Conference Friday, April 12, 2002 The Departments of Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences at Appalachian State University are pleased to announce the Seventh North Carolina Mini-Conference on Graph Theory, Combinatorics, and Computing. The conference will be held on Friday, April 12th, 2002. We have a preliminary schedule of talks. The conference will be held at the Plemmons Student Union Building (note: this is different from last year). Parking is available at First Baptist Church on King Street (hang tags are needed). We plan to have someone in the church lot to direct parking and give out hang tags. One of the goals of this conference is to provide a venue in which students can present their work, and so we especially encourage students (undergraduate and graduate) to consider giving talks. Each speaker will have 20 minutes for his her presentation with 5 additional minutes for questions. A conference luncheon will take place again this year. During the luncheon, participants will have the opportunity to interact with one another -- discussing areas of common interest and making valuable connections with others in our region.

Graphs, Eigenvalues and Geometric Representations
5-day minicourse by Lszl Lovsz. Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Belgium; 22--26 April 2002.
lovasz.html (MC-02-26 --- TU e vakcode 2E941 ) 5-day minicourse on Graphs, Eigenvalues, and Geometric Representations by Prof. Lszl Lovsz, Microsoft Research, Redmond, Washington, USA Lszl Lovsz was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1948. He obtained his doctoral degree in mathematics from the Etvs Lornd University, in Budapest, Hungary in 1971. He is a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and three other Academies. He was Professor of the A. Jzsef University of Szeged, the L. Etvs University in Budapest, and Yale University. Currently he is Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research. His awards include the Brouwer Medal (1993) and the Wolf Prize (1999). His field of research is discrete mathematics, in particular its applications in the theory of algorithms and the theory of computing. Contents Connections between eigenvalues of adjacency matrices of graphs and graph-theoretic properties has been subject to intense research. Various geometric representations of graphs have also been studied and used in a variety of ways: for example, planar graphs can be represented by convex polyhedra. Other representations (like orthogonal representations) have applications to graph algorithms. In this course we show that there is a very tight connection between eigenvalues and geometric representations. Eigensubspaces of (weighted) adjacency matrices lead to embeddings of graphs in euclidean spaces, reflecting graph theoretic properties. For example, for 3-connected planar graphs, this method gives representations as 3-polytopes, and all polytopal representations can be obtained this way. The topic is closely tied with a spectral invariant introduced by Colin de Verdiere. Time and place Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, The Netherlands, April 22 - 26, 2002. Admission fee The admission fee for a minicourse is Euro 680 (NLG 1500). However, our courses are free of charge for EIDMA members and for university students. Reductions or exemptions do apply to members of other academic institutes. Registration You can register by sending an e-mail to mrs. Henny Houben at eidma@tue.nl before April 8, 2002.

ALCCAL 2000
Algebraic Combinatorics and Computer Algebra Summer School. Varna, Bulgaria; 3--14 September 2000.
ALCCAL.html Summer School ALCCAL' 2000 "ALGEBRAIC COMBINATORICS AND COMPUTER ALGEBRA" September 3 - 14, 2000, Varna, BULGARIA First Announcement Place of the ALCCAL'2000 Summer School Main idea Scientific Community Structure of the meeting Method of organization Description of the place and available facilities Payments and deadlines Registration form Abstracts Important dates Main idea We are organizing a summer school with the above title in Bulgaria on the coast of Black Sea from September 3 to September 14, 2000. The duration of the summer school will be 12 days, including 8 working days, 2 excursion days and days of arrival and departure. Sponsorship was not sought for the meeting and so we are unable to give any financial support to the participants. Everything is based on the enthusiasm of the organizers and our guests. In a sense the idea of this meeting is similar to the idea of the First International Conference on Algebraic Combinatorics in Vladimir, USSR, August 1991. We think that the present time in Bulgaria is most appropriate: this country is striving to become a major tourist and recreational attraction. Thus we have been able to find reasonable prices at a high level of service. Scientific community Algebraic combinatorics is a field of mathematics which was recognized "officially" 10-15 years ago. The name itself came from the Japanese mathematicians E. Bannai T. Ito who published a book with such title in 1984. Roughly speaking, algebraic combinatorics deals with highly symmetrical combinatorial objects (graphs, designs, codes etc.). What "high symmetry" means can be rigorously formulated in terms of the action of the automorphism group of the object. One of the most beneficial ways to consider this is that the requirement of transitivity (primitivity) of the action of a certain group is substituted by weaker assumption of combinatorial regularity. For example, parallel consideration and classification of rank 3 graphs and strongly regular graphs is one of the areas in algebraic combinatorics. The techniques used in algebraic combinatorics is in a sense an amalgamation of methods from group theory, linear algebra, graph theory, number theory and representation theory. Extensive use of computers and especially of computer algebra packages is an essential feature of this area. There are hundreds of mathematicians working in algebraic combinatorics as it is defined above. A lot of research deals with allied areas: design theory, topological graph theory, diagram geometries, finite fields and its applications, coding theory, applied statistics, etc. and these have a deep and long-standing dependency on algebraic combinatorics. The main target of our summer school will be all theoretical aspects of algebraic combinatorics. This will be supplemented by various links with coding theory. Other important components of interest will be computer algebra systems and in particular use of modern computer systems (for example GAP, GRAPE, DISCRETA, COCO and others) in algebraic combinatorics. Structure of the meeting The period of the school is September 3 - September 14, 2000. Sunday, September 3 will be the day of arrival, 8 working days will start from Monday, September 4 until Wednesday, September 13, with an interruption for two excursion days. Thursday, September 14 will be a day of departure and or optional excursions. The standard package for the participants will be 11 nights from Sunday, September 3 till Thursday, September 14. Shorter packages (of at least for 7 days) will also be available. During each of the 8 working days there will be two sessions, each of 3-4 working hours. The main body of the summer school will be covered by 8-12 short courses, each consisting of 2-4 hour lectures. These mini-courses will be given by prominent leading experts in algebraic combinatorics who have an approved reputation as excellent speakers. Each participant (including organizers) will be invited to submit a 30 minutes contributed talk. Such option will be open to everybody who register before the deadline. If necessary, parallel sessions will be organized. We will also organize a few poster sessions for ad hoc contributions. Other suitable ideas for social outings (besides excursion days) will also be considered which will involve accompanying persons (daily) and all participants (at evening time). The abstracts of all contributed talks will be available at the time of registration. At this moment we have the following preliminary arrangements of the short courses (those marked by the sign * are finally confirmed): Table algebras and their applications to finite groups (Zvi Arad*, Israel); Association Schemes in Statistics (Rosemary A. Bailey*, England); Graph Embeddings and Galois Groups (Gareth Jones*, England); Group theoretical methods for constructive enumeration in combinatorics (Reinhard Laue*, Germany); Constructive enumeration of graphs (Brendan McKay, Australia); Isomorphisms of Cayley graphs (Mikhail Muzychuk*, Israel); Cayley Graphs in Theoretical Computer Science (Gottfried Tinhofer*, Germany); Structural approach to association schemes (Paul-Hermann Zieschang*, Germany); Normally regular directed graphs (Leif Jorgensen*, Denmark); Selected topics of coding theory (Anton Betten*, Germany). The final list of short courses will be included in the second announcement which will be sent to everybody who will reply on this announcement.

Combinatorics and Set Theory 2
(Set theory and its Neighbours 11). London, UK; 4 April 2002.
Set theory and its neighbours, Tenth Meeting Set theory and its neighbours , 11: Combinatorics and set theory, 2 The eleventh one-day conference in the in the series Set theory and its neighbours, took place on Wednesday, 3rd April 2002 at the London Mathematical Society building, De Morgan House, 57-58 Russell Square, London WC1. The speakers at the meeting were: Marcin Kysiak (Polish Academy of Sciences) Various classes of small sets: combinatorics vs. measure and category (ps) (pdf) [Both at Marcin's site in Warsaw] Abstract: I shall talk about relations between classes of small sets in the sense of measure and or category (like: strongly null, universally null, very meager, perfectly meager, etc.) and - that's combinatorial part - classes of small sets like s_0, l_0, m_0. In particular, I shall concentrate on some new (I hope so!) results that we have recently obtained together with Tomasz Weiss concerning Laver-null (l_0) and Miller-null (m_0) sets. Imre Leader (Cambridge) Forbidden distances in the rationals and the reals Abstract: We show that the reals may be partitioned into finitely many classes, each of which has `few' distances in a certain natural sense. Although the construction appears to use CH in an indispensible way, it turns out that the result remains true without CH. Olivier Lessman (Oxford) Dimension theory in homogeneous model theory Charles Morgan (UCL) Some step-ups and a few gentle stretching exercises Abstract: I discuss generic stepping up problems and techniques, with particular emphasis on the new notions of local connectedness functions and -M-proper forcing for arbitrary uncountable cardinals . I give some applications of these ideas to pcf theory, Lindelof spaces, and strong chains in P( ). Links to papers : Local distance and connectedness functions pcf structures II: the consistency of pcf structures on omega_2 tudes in -M-proper forcing Greg Piper (UEA) Square principles on P_\kappa(\lambda) Rene Schipperus (University of Vienna) Elementary submodels in the partition calculus Abstract: We prove some new and old results in the partition calculus which make use of the choice of elementary submodels of (a part of) the set theoretic universe. These ideas replace the older ramification arguments and are essential to further progress. We explain all of the set theoretic notions involved. We are very grateful to the LMS for allowing us to use De Morgan House as a venue and for their financial support for the meeting.

Combinatorial Potlatch
University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington, USA; 16 February 2002.
Combinatorial Potlatch - February 2002 Thompson Hall , Math CS Dept Combinatorial Potlatch University of Puget Sound Saturday, February 16, 2002 Wheelock Student Center , Meeting Site Definitions | Speakers | Schedule | Abstracts | Registration | Getting There | Lodging | Eating | Conference Party | History | Contacts The n-th Annual Combinatorial Potlatch will be held February 16, 2002 on the campus of the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma , Washington. Definitions Combinatorial Potlatches have been held for many years at various locations around Puget Sound and southern British Columbia, and are an opportunity for combinatorialists in the region to gather informally for a day of invited talks and conversation. While most who attend work in, or near, the Puget Sound basin, all are welcome. The American Heritage Dictionary defines "potlatch" as: A ceremonial feast among certain Native American peoples of the northwest Pacific coast, as in celebration of a marriage or an accession, at which the host distributes gifts according to each guest's rank or status. Between rival groups the potlatch could involve extravagant or competitive giving and destruction by the host of valued items as a display of superior wealth. [Chinook Jargon, from Nootka p'achitl, to make a potlatch gift.] Invited Speakers Brian Alspach , University of Regina and Simon Fraser University (Emeritus) Title: Group Actions and Hamilton Decompositions of Complete Graphs Brett Stevens , Carleton University (Ottawa) Title: On Universal Cycles of k-sets of an n-set Jonathan Jedwab, Simon Fraser University Title: Combinatorial Design Theory and the IEEE 802.12 Transmission Code Abstracts Group Actions and Hamilton Decompositions of Complete Graphs Brian Alspach, University of Regina and Simon Fraser University (Emeritus) Abstract: We shall take a look at the problem of determining for which values of n there exist Hamilton decompositions of the complete graph of order n which are invariant under the action of cyclic groups. We shall also consider some extensions of this problem. In summary, not a lot is known. On Universal Cycles of k-sets of an n-set Brett Stevens, Carleton University (Ottawa) Abstract: In 1992 Chung, Diaconis and Graham wrote the readable and thoroughly enjoyable "Universal Cycles for Combinatorial Structures". In it they generalize both the definition and construction of de Bruijn cycles to other families of combinatorial objects: permutations, partitions and subset systems. These generalizations resonate with generalizations of Gray Code, being gray codes that are compatible with queue data structures. Hurlbert and Jackson have continued this work solving, among other families, universal cycles for $k$-sets of $n$-sets for $k=2, 36$ and partially for other $k$. In their empirical work it was noted and conjectured that a universal cycle for the $n-2$-sets of an $n$-set never exists, even thought the standard necessary conditions are satisfied for all odd $n$. This was recently proved by Stevens, et al. This talk will review the past work, this recent result and the future look at Gray codes or de Bruijn generalizations compatible with different data structures.

Conference Party at Coles Tavern, A Blues Oasis Registration Please help us plan food for break services by carefully considering the following (punitive) registration options. Advance registration: Free. Contact Nancy Neudauer nancy@pacificu.edu with your probability of attending, hopefully at least a few days in advance. To receive more announcements, or for future Combinatorial Potlatches, send a request to Rob Beezer beezer@ups.edu to be added to the announcement list. On-site registration: $100 per person. Getting There (Location and Driving Directions) All talks and breaks will be conducted in the Murray Boardroom, which is located on the first floor of the Wheelock Student Center in the northeast corner. The Wheelock Student Center is building number 20 on the campus map . A larger map of the Tacoma area works well with written directions describing travel by car, plane, train or bus. Parking on the weekend should not present any special problems, and no parking passes are necessary. Approaching the Student Center from the south along Lawrence Street (off N 11th Street) will lead to a large parking lot adjacent to the building. Or find the parking lot just west of the intersection of N 14th and Alder. Local Lodging For those traveling from some distance the UPS web site has some suggestions for overnight accomodations, bed and breakfasts and hotels and motels . Keenan House is the closest bed and breakfast at just a few blocks from campus. If you are combining business with pleasure, The Villa is pretty deluxe, but has also been eager to accomodate visitors to the university at their lowest rates for some of the fancier rooms. For more traditional hotels and motels, we can recommend The Tacoma Sheraton , though it is likely the most expensive of the lot. Some of the hotels listed on the UPS site as being "off I-5" can be pretty ordinary. If you are coming down through the Olympic Peninsula, The Inn at Gig Harbor is a nice location 15 minutes short of campus, while the Maritime Inn is a small hotel right on the waterfront in Gig Harbor proper - very picturesque. Local Eateries Some suggestions for lunch or dinner that are nearby are provided by the UPS web site. Or consult this list , which seems to have it about right, or the Tacoma Weekly's more comprehensive list . The Engine House 9 might be a good location for a group lunch - close to campus, variants on pub food, and a wide selection of beer, some brewed next door. More scenic is Katie Downs with good pizza and good beer right on the waterfront along Ruston Way . Gateway to India is close by, and caters to vegetarians (more info on a couple of the lists referenced above). Conference Party A no-host conference party will be held after dinner at Coles Tavern, A Blues Oasis located at 5811 N 51st St, which is close to the entrance to Pt Defiance Park at the northern tip of North Tacoma (though this is really the very small town of Ruston). Phone number there is 253-879-1119. History A history of the Combinatorial Potlatch is available. Photos of the speakers in action are also available.

SPIRE'2001 is a Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval which is in its eighth edition. The first four editions focused primarily on string processing and originated in South America, and were called WSP (South American Workshop on String Processing). They were held in Belo Horizonte, Brazil (1993), Valparaso, Chile (1995 and 1997), and Recife, Brazil (1996). Starting in 1998, at Santa Cruz, Bolivia, the focus of the workshop was broadened to include the area of information retrieval due to its increasing relevance and its inter-relationship with the area of string processing. SPIRE'99, at Cancn, Mexico, and SPIRE'2000, at A Corua, Spain, have continued this trend including also the area of DNA computing, with several papers and invited talks on this topic. For SPIRE'2001 we expect to have contributions from several related communities. The SPIRE'2001 symposium aims at facilitating the potential benefits of cross- fertilization between different fields. As such, it offers a singular opportunity for researchers interested in working with problems related to these areas. As in the past, the proceedings of SPIRE'2001 will be published by IEEE CS Press.

FOATAFEST Classical Combinatorics In honor of Dominique Foata's 65th birthday Temple University 1616 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA July 7-9, 2000 Participants | Poster | Schedule of Speakers Expense Report Info | At the Banquet | Dominique's Doctorate Directions Proceedings Information: All participants (both speakers and non-speakers) are cordially invited to contribute to the refereed proceedings for "Classical Combinatorics" which will be published as a special issue of Advances in Applied Mathematics. Please send your contribution to Joseph Kung at kung@unt.edu. The deadline for submissions has been extended to January 1, 2001. The term Classical Combinatorics , coined by Dominique Foata, is roughly the combinatorial analog of Classical Analysis. Today it is better know as Enumerative and Algebraic Combinatorics. One of the fastest growing areas of modern mathematics, it touches upon many areas of mathematics and science. This conference will emphasize the more classical aspects of enumerative combinatorics, like permutation statistics, tableaux, q-series, words, combinatorial special function theory, commutation monoids, and related subjects, as well as their relation to computer science, physics, and statistics. Organized by: George Andrews, Richard A. Askey, Aaron Robertson (co-chair), Herbert S. Wilf, and Doron Zeilberger (co-chair). Supported by: National Science Foundation and Temple University

Design Theory: Resolvability and Parallelisms
PIMS at Simon Fraser University, BC; May 16-18, 2001.
Design Theory Workshop The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences launched a new web site on March 31, 2005. If there is any discrepancy between the information on this page and the new site, the information on the new site should be used. Design Theory: Resolvability and Parallelisms May 16-18, 2001 PIMS at Simon Fraser University East Academic Annex - Seminar Room 1100 Parallel classes and resolvability are two powerful substructures in Combinatorial Design theory. Full and partial Parallel classes are necessary for Wilson's Fundamental construction. Recent generalizations of traditional resolvability are an exciting new area of study and application. There have been two recent generalizations of resolvability to Pairwise Balanced Designs, RRPs where every resolution class is made of of blocks of a fixed size and CURDs where every resolution class is isomorphic as a spanning subgraph of the complete graph. Resolvable packings and partial resolutions have been shown to be powerfully applicable to synchronous uni-polar multi-user communication systems. These exciting recent developments prompt this mini workshop on the subject. The conference is going to be informal, with about three invited talks per day and plenty of time for informal discussion or impromptu presentation. We also hope to give promising graduate students a chance to talk in a comfortable atmosphere. If you have a student who you think would be appropriate then please send us their name so that we may extend an invitation to them. There will also be a conference dinner on Thursday at the Liliget Feast House (Salish Food) it will cost approximately $40 per person but it promises to be a wonderful experience!

GAMESMAN
Game-independent Automatic Move position-tree Exhaustive-Search, Manipulation And Navigation. Tool for analyzing and playing small two-player games, built independent of the actual game being played.
Dan Garcia : Software : GAMESMAN This is a deprecated page. Please see my Undergraduate Game Theory Research Group GamesCrafters for the current state of the project. "There once was a prof known as Danny... who couldn't play games worth a penny. He wrote a small program... that played them all fo' him. Now he indeed seems quite canny!" -- Daniel Horn, UC Berkeley EECS alumnus GAMESMAN A Finite, Two-Person, Perfect-Information Game Generator Overview GAMESMAN (Game-independent Automatic Move position-tree Exhaustive-Search, Manipulation And Navigation) is my Master's thesis (2Mb pdf) and accompanying awesome software which I finished in the Spring of 1995. [I've written up a brief, 5-page introduction to the system. ] Abstract "Why write a program when you can write a program to write a program?" -- Author unknown This Master's report introduces GAMESMAN, a system for generating graphical parametrizable game applications. Programmers write game 'modules' for a specific game, which when combined with our libraries, compile together to become stand-alone X-window applications as shown in the Figure below. The modules only need contain information about the rules of the game and how the game ends. If the game is small-enough, it may be solved, and the computer can play the role of an oracle, or 'perfect' opponent. This oracle can advise a novice player how to play, and teach the strategy of the game even though none was programmed into the system! If a game is too large to be solved exhaustively, the game programmer can add heuristics to provide an imperfect computer opponent. Finally, the application can provide a useful utility to two human players who are playing each other, since it can be a 'referee' who constrains the users' moves to be only valid moves, can update the board to respond to the move, and can signal when one of the players has won.

Analysis on Graphs and its Applications
Research programme at the Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, UK; 8 January - 29 June 2007.
INI Programme AGA - Institute Home Page Programmes Web-Seminars Programme Home Seminars Workshops Additional Links Contacts Mailing List Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences Analysis on Graphs and its Applications 8 January - 29 June 2007 Organisers: Professor BM Brown (Cardiff), Professor P Exner (Czech Academy of Sciences), Professor P Kuchment (Texas) and Professor T Sunada (Meiji) Scientific Advisors: : Professor WD Evans (Cardiff), Professor JP Keating (Bristol), Professor B Pavlov (Auckland), Professor A Teplyaev (Connecticut) and Professor C de Verdire (Institut Fourier) Programme Theme Analysis on graphs and other discrete structures has been developing for quite some time, in particular due to applications to number theory, algebra, probability theory, spectral geometry, as well as to its usefulness in many practical problems. This area, however, has experienced recently a significant boost in terms of new important applications arising, new methods being developed, and new models introduced not studied before. This has happened due to numerous new applications arising in different areas of mathematics, sciences, and engineering. They swipe throughout a wide scientific landscape, which besides the fields already mentioned includes nanotechnology, microelectronics, quantum chemistry, superconductivity, optics, etc. New objects, so called quantum graphs have also emerged. These are graphs considered as one-dimensional CW-complexes and equipped with differential or pseudo-differential, rather than customary difference operators. Such graphs, besides being in many cases useful low-dimensional models of complex systems, are also used as toy models for studying difficult issues such as Anderson localisation, scattering, and quantum chaos. This has lead to interest in this research by scientists coming from different fields (physics, partial differential equations, algebra, combinatorics, number theory). The methods already used or expected to be useful in analysis on graphs come from a very wide range of topics: algebra, combinatorics, PDEs, spectral theory, micro-local and complex analysis, to name a few. The program will assemble, essentially for the first time, a diverse group of prominent mathematicians and physicists, as well as young researchers working in or interested in entering this fast developing and fascinating area. The hope is to facilitate the process of communication and cooperation, thereby promoting accelerated progress in this burgeoning new area. Among the particular topics that will be addressed during the program are: Spectral analysis on combinatorial graphs and its applications to number theory, discrete groups, random walks, and other areas; Quantum graph models for wave propagation in thin structures and for quantum and optical switching and computing; Spectral analysis and quantum chaos on quantum graphs; Analysis on fractals.
Aveiro Workshop on Graph Spectra
Aveiro, Portugal; 10--12 April 2006.
AVEIRO WORKSHOP ON GRAPH SPECTRA Home Fees and Deadlines Registration Special Issue Committees Conference Program Social Events List of participants General Information Support Contacts My Account Home About the workshop The theory of graph spectra is now a well established field of research in mathematics and in several applied sciences (e.g. chemistry), and many results have been published over the last few decades. In recognition of the strong developments in the subject, this workshop has been organized as a forum for the many researchers around the world. The main goals of the workshop are to bring together the leading researchers on graph spectra and related topics, to establish the state of the art, and to discuss recent achievements and challenges. The topics include applications of graph spectra to chemistry and other branches of science. The members of the Scientific Committee are among the renowned specialists on spectral graph theory who will deliver 10 plenary presentations. Additionally, we have planned a problem session and a few parallel contributions where international experts will be able to present their most recent results. Contributors should submit the pdf file of their abstract (no more than two A4 pages), attached to their registration form or to a message sent to awgs@mat.ua.pt , by January 15, 2006. Notification of acceptance will be sent by February 15, 2006. After that contributors should also send the LaTex file ( Here you can find the Template LaTex file). There will be no financial support to contributors. However, we hope to be able to provide a limited number of free accommodations for up to four nights (between April 9 and April 13) for students and junior scientist participants. Requests should be sent by March 1, after registration and fee payment by bank transfer (see details in Fees and Deadlines ), by email to awgs@mat.ua.pt . Hotels should be contacted directly. Please see addresses of some hotels and other information about the town in General Information . Here you can download the poster about the workshop.

Dr David B. Penman Dr David B. Penman Lecturer in Probability Room: 6.307 Telephone: +44 1206 872839 Email: dbpenman at essex.ac.uk Contact Information Research Interests A new class of random graphs. Instead of the classical assumption that all edges arise independently of each other, with the same probability, one assumes that each vertex independently receives one of k colours and then the probability that an edge between two vertices arises depends on the colours of the two vertices. Since the colours of the vertices are assumed hidden, whether or not edges are present are no longer independent of each other: for example, with two equiprobable colours, if edges arise between vertices of the same colour with probability p and between vertices of different colours with probability q, the probability of the triangle 1-2-3-1 arising is ((p+q) 2)^3+((p-q) 2)^3 rather than ((p+q) 2)^3 as classically. The thrust of the research is to consider the probability of the random graphs in these more general models having various properties, and compare and contrast this with the corresponding probability in that classical model where the overall probability of each edge arising is the same, so that the differences between the two reflect the dependence structure in the new model.

A New Algorithm for finding Hamiltonian Circuits, :: http: www.geocities.com dharwadker hamilton , 2004. We present a new polynomial-time algorithm for finding Hamiltonian circuits in certain graphs. It is shown that the algorithm always finds a Hamiltonian circuit in graphs that have at least three vertices and minimum degree at least half the total number of vertices. In the process, we also obtain a constructive proof of Diracs famous theorem of 1952, for the first time. There are no known examples of Hamiltonian graphs for which this algorithm cannot find a Hamiltonian circuit. In view of the importance of the P versus NP question, we ask: does there exist a Hamiltonian graph for which this algorithm cannot find a Hamiltonian circuit? The algorithm is implemented in C++ and the program is demonstrated with several examples. :: The Math Forum Review Heptahedron and Roman Surface, :: http: www.eg-models.de , Electronic Geometry Models, Model 2003.05.001, 2004.

Some Open Problems in Graph Theory
Open Problems involving Steiner distance.
Open Problems in Graph Theory involving Steiner Distance Some Open Problems in Graph Theory It has been shown by Chartrand, Oellermann, Tian, and Zou that, for a tree T: diamn T = [n (n-1)] radn T for all n =2. This inequality does not hold for graphs in general as was shown by Henning, Oellermann, and Swart . It was shown in the same paper that for a graph G and n=3 and 4: diamn G = [2(n-1) (2n-1)] rad n G. It was conjectured in the same paper that this inequality holds for all n = 3. However, it remains an open problem for n =5. It was shown by Oellermann and Tian that for a tree T: Cn-1(T) is contained in Cn (T) for all n =3. It remains an open problem to determine whether this containment holds for general graphs. In other words, it is not known if the Steiner (n-1)-center of a graph is contained in its Steiner n-center. It was shown by Beineke, Oellermann and Pippert that if T is a tree, then Mn-1(T) is contained in Mn (T) for all n = 3. It remains an open problem to determine whether this containment holds for general graphs. In other words, it is not known if the Steiner (n-1)-median of a graph is contained in its Steiner n-median. It is known that for a given n = 2 every graph is the Steiner n-center of some graph. (Also, the Steiner n-centers of trees were characterized by Oellermann and Tian ). It is known that every graph is the 2-median of some graph (see Holbert ,and Hendry ). Steiner n-medians of trees have been completely characterized by Beineke, Oellermann, and Pippert. However, it remains an open problem to determine which graphs are Steiner n-medians of graphs for n = 3. It was shown by Oellermann that Steiner n-centers and Steiner n-medians of trees can be specified according to their characterizations and that they can be arbitrarily far apart. Holbert... showed that the 2-center and 2-median of a graph can be specified and that these can be arbitrarily far apart in some graph. However, for n 2, this problem is still open. Of course, solving this problem can only be attempted once problem 4 has been solved. Copyright 1998. Ortrud Oellermann URL: http: www.uwinnipeg.ca ~ooellerm open_problems index.html
Some Open Problems
Kzdy's open problems.
Kzdy -- Some Open Problems Sums Modulo n, Cyclic Neofields, and Tree Embeddings These problems arise from some of my work with Hunter Snevily (University of Idaho at Moscow, ID). Kzdy and Snevily (in our paper entitled ``Distinct sums modulo n and tree embeddings``, submitted) have conjectured the following four conjectures. Let [k] = {1,...,k}. A function f: [k] x [k] Zn is alternating if f(i,j) = - f(j,i) (mod n), for all i,j. Permutations are viewed as sequences, so the permutation in Sn is viewed as the sequence (1), (2), ..., (n). For i,j, define the distance in from i to j, denoted d(i,j), as the quantity -1(j) - -1(i). Clearly d(i,j) = -d(j,i) (i.e. d is an alternating function). Conjecture A: For any positive integers k and n satisfying k n, and any alternating function f: [k] x [k] Zn, there exists a permutation in Sk, such that d(i,j) f(i,j) (mod n), for all distinct i,j in [k] We have proven Conjecture A when n is prime. For a = (a1,a2,...,ak) in Znk, let (n,a) denote the number of permutations in Sk such that are all distinct modulo n. Define N(n,k) = min { (n,a) : a in Znk}. Snevily has conjectured that N(n,k) 0 for all positive integers n and k satisfying k n (see conjecture 4 in ``The Cayley addition table of Zn``, by H. Snevily, Amer. Math. Monthly, 106 No. 6, June-July (1999), 584-585). Conjecture B: N(n,k) is monotone in n and k. Specifically, N(n,k) N(n,k+1) for all n and k satisying 0 k n - 1, and N(n,k) N(n+1,k), for all n and k satisfying 0 k n. Conjecture C: For n sufficiently large with respect to k, N(n,2k) = (k!)2 and N(n,2k+1) = (k+1)(k!)2 . Note that, if true, Conjecture C would be sharp because a=(0,...0,n-1...n-1) achieves the bound (where the number of 0's is floor(k 2) and the number of n-1's is ceiling(k 2)). In light of the apparent monotonicity of N(n,k), a particularly interesting value of this function occurs when k = n-1. We conjecture the following... Conjecture D: For n 3, N(n,n-1) is equal to the number of cyclic neofields of order n+1. Partitioning Permutations The problems in this section arise from some of my work with Hunter Snevily (University of Idaho at Moscow, Idaho) and Chi Wang (University of Louisville, Louisville, KY). Determine all forbidden permutations that characterize (2,1)-permutations. That is, find all permutations that can not be partitioned into 2 increasing and 1 decreasing subsequences, and are minimal with this property. For example, 210543, or 216480375. We believe there are 102 such permutations. Our paper shows that there are at most a finite number of these (the bound is sure to be no where near the right answer). For a list of known 102 forbidden (1,2)-permutations, please e-mail me at: kezdy@louisville.edu Determine the forbidden induced subgraph characterization of (2,2)-comparability graphs. That is, find all comparability graphs whose vertex set cannot be partitioned into two independent sets and two cliques, and are minimal with this property.
Gordon Royle's Open Questions
Colouring, algebraic graph theory, geometries.
Gordon Royle's Open Questions Open questions This page lists a variety of questions in combinatorics that I believe are open questions and to which I would be interested in knowing the answer. For the moment there is no particular order to the questions, nor any segregation between questions of great difficulty and importance and incremental advances in pushing back the borders of knowledge. Of course this information will change over time - please let me know if you can update any of the information here. Also I am far from being an expert in many of these areas so if you see any blunders or can inform me of any further information please mail gordon@cs.uwa.edu.au This is all very much under construction - besides being lazy, I have a million other things to do. Graph Theory Graph colouring The ultimate reference for open questions on graph colouring is the recent book Graph Coloring Problems by Tommy Jensen and Bjarne Toft. I will just be mentioning some of the ones that I find most appealing (i.e. nothing to do with embeddings or asymptotics), and some that do not appear in GCP. Prove or disprove Hedetniemi's conjecture that the product of two graphs of chromatic number n must also have chromatic number n. See GCP, Problem 11.1. Miscellaneous Prove or disprove: every (finite) graph with minimum degree at least 3 contains some cycle with length a power of two. (This is a pretty weird conjecture, looks like it ought to be false, but there are no obvious immediate counterexamples.) I have obtained some negative computer results. Question due to Erdos and Gyarfas. Algebraic Graph Theory Eigenvalues of graphs What is the maximum spectral radius attained by a planar graph on n vertices. I strongly conjecture that the graph obtained by completely joining the path on 2 vertices to the path on n-2 vertices achieves the maximum. There is some evidence to support this conjecture. Strongly regular graphs Find or prove non-existent strongly regular graph with the following parameter sets: (3250,57,0,1) - Moore graph. (65,32,15,16) - smallest parameter set whose status is unresolved. (162,21,0,3) - smallest triangle-free graph not yet known. Geometry Projective planes Find or prove non-existent a projective plane of order 12, the smallest order for which this is not known. Determine whether there are any projective planes of non prime-power order Generalized quadrangles Generalized polygons Designs
Perfect Problems
Unsolved problems on perfect graphs.
Open problems on perfect graphs PERFECT PROBLEMS Created on 22 August, 2000 Last updated on 28 November, 2004 In May 2002, the Strong Perfect Graph Conjecture became the Strong Perfect Graph Theorem Details are here. As a part of the 1992 -- 1993 Special Year on Combinatorial Optimization at DIMACS , Lszl Lovsz, Bruce Reed, and I organized a workshop on perfect graphs. The workshop took place at Princeton University on June 10--14, 1993. In February of that year, Bruce and I prepared a list of open problems, which was then sent to all the invited participants. The next version of the list, updated just before the workshop, and still available at ftp: dimacs.rutgers.edu pub perfect problems.tex included additions by Claude Berge, Leizhen Cai, Guoli Ding, Vladimir Gurvich, Andrs Gyrfs, Alain Hertz, Stefan Hougardy, Frdric Maire, Frdric Maffray, K.R.Parthasarathy, Myriam Preissmann, G.Ravindra, Irena Rusu, Andrs Seb, R.Sritharan, and Zsolt Tuza. Most of the problems presented here come from that list.

This makes most problems from this section solved or not very interesting. The a href="spgt.htmltheorem" decomposition theorem for perfect graphs a does not -- or at least does not yet -- provide a polynomial-time algorithm for recognizing perfect graphs. (De Figueiredo, Klein, Kohayakawa, and Reed ( EM Finding skew partitions efficiently EM , J. Algorithms STRONG 37 STRONG (2000), 505--521. A HREF="http: www.ams.org mathscinet-getitem?m\ r=2001j%3A05114" STRONG MR 2001j:05114 STRONG A ) designed a polynomial-time algorithm to recognize graphs that admit a skew partition and to find a skew partition in such graphs. However, it is not clear what to do with a graph in which a skew partition has been found: the policy of decomposing it into the four subgraphs that arise by deletion of one of the four parts of the skew partition may eventually lead to an overwhelming number of subgraphs to be tested for perfection.) br p Meanwhile, warm-up exercises consist of trying to recognize, in polynomial time, restricted classes of perfect graphs.

Some researchers believe that solving Problem 1.2 would require developing techniques powerful enough to yield a polynomial-time algorithm to recognize perfect graphs. p hr A graph is called em short-chorded em or em Raspail em if each of its cycles whose length is odd and at least five has a ``short chord'', meaning a chord that along with two edges of the cycle forms a triangle. br p Trivially, no odd hole is short-chorded; seeing that no odd antihole is short-chorded is not difficult, either. (For illustration, consider the hole of length seven with vertices kbd 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 kbd and edges kbd 12,23,34,45,56,67,71 kbd : in its complement, the cycle with edges kbd 14,47,73,36,62,25,51 kbd has no short chord.)

A less ambitious program would be an attempt to reformulate the a href="http: www.math.gatech.edu ~thomas spgc.html" decomposition theorem for perfect graphs a by Chudnovsky, Robertson, Seymour, and Thomas exclusively in terms of code P sub 4 sub code -structure. p hr p The decomposition theorem asserts that blockquote every Berge graph either belongs to one of five classes of basic Berge graphs, namely, ul li bipartite graphs, li complements of bipartite graphs, li line-graphs of bipartite graphs, li complements of line-graphs of bipartite graphs, li "double split graphs", ul or else it has one of four structural faults, namely, ul li 2-join, li 2-join in the complement, li M-join, li a balanced skew partition ul blockquote (for definitions, see the a href="http: www.math.gatech.edu ~thomas spgc.html" paper a by Chudnovsky, Robertson, Seymour, and Thomas); in her thesis, Chudnovsky showed that the stronger assertion with M-joins dropped remains valid.

The next observation (also verified by exhaustive search and also used in the proof that a graph is a Berge graph if and only if its code P sub 4 sub code -structure contains no induced odd ring) is this: blockquote Each vertex of code D sub 6 sub (H) code with nonzero in-degree and nonzero out-degree has one of the following four properties: ul li it is of type code 1 code and all its neighbors are of type code 1,5, code or code 6 code ; li it is of type code 2 code and all its neighbors are of type code 2,5, code or code 6 code ; li it is of type code 3 code and all its neighbors are of type code 4 code ; li it is of type code 4 code and all its neighbors are of type code 3 code . ul blockquote It follows that blockquote each strongly connected component of code D sub 6 sub (H) code with at least two vertices has one of the following three properties: ul li all of its vertices are of type code 1 code ; li all of its vertices are of type code 2 code ; li it is bipartite, all its vertices in one part of the bipartition are of type code 3 code , and all its vertices in the other part of the bipartition are of type code 4 code . ul blockquote p Finally, assuming that code G code is a basic Berge graph, we shall verify that all strongly connected components of code D sub 6 sub (H) code are bipartite. Since code P sub 4 sub code -structure of code G code is invariant under complementation of code G code , we may distinguish between three cases. br p b Case 1: b code G code is bipartite. br p Since code F sub 2 sub code is not bipartite, we only need to two-color each strongly connected component of code D sub 6 sub (H) code whose vertices are of type code 1 code .

Since code F sub 2 sub code is not a line-graph of a bipartite graph, we only need to two-color each strongly connected component of code D sub 6 sub (H) code whose vertices are of type code 1 code . This can be done by giving each of these vertices, center code (u sub 1 sub ,u sub 2 sub ,u sub 3 sub ,u sub 4 sub ,u sub 5 sub ,u sub 6 sub ), code center the color of the edge code u sub 1 sub u sub 2 sub code in code G code . br p b Case 3: b code G code is a double split graph. br p By definition, code G code has code 2m+2n code nbsp; ( code m,ngt;1 code )nbsp; distinct vertices, center code a sub 1 sub ,...,a sub m sub , b sub 1 sub ,...,b sub m sub , c sub 1 sub ,...,c sub n sub , d sub 1 sub ,...,d sub n sub , code center and ul li an code a sub i sub code is adjacent to a code b sub j sub code if and only if code i=j code , li a code c sub i sub code is nonadjacent to a code d sub j sub code if and only if code i=j code , li each set code {a sub i sub ,b sub i sub ,c sub j sub ,d sub j sub } code induces a code P sub 4 sub code . ul An exhaustive search shows that each vertex center code (u sub 1 sub ,u sub 2 sub ,u sub 3 sub ,u sub 4 sub ,u sub 5 sub ,u sub 6 sub ) code center of code D sub 6 sub (H) code that is of type code 1 code must have center code u sub 1 sub ,u sub 3 sub ,u sub 4 sub ,u sub 6 sub code nbsp; in nbsp; code {a sub 1 sub ,...,a sub m sub ,b sub 1 sub ,...,b sub m sub } code center and center code u sub 2 sub ,u sub 5 sub code nbsp; in nbsp; code {c sub 1 sub ,...,c sub n sub ,d sub 1 sub ,...,d sub n sub }; code center it follows that no two vertices of type code 1 code are adjacent.

Problems in Graph Theory
Maintained by Peter Cameron.
Problems ex Cameron's homepage Problems These are problems which have been on my homepage and are now put out to grass. See also permutation group problems . 1. In 1956, Rudin defined a permutation of the integers which maps 3x to 2x, 3x+1 to 4x+1, and 3x-1 to 4x-1 for all x. Problem: Determine the cycle structure of this permutation. I have just learned (December 1998) that this problem is older: it is the "original Collatz problem" from the 1930s (before the famous 3x+1 problem). A paper by Jeff Lagarias gives details. 2. Let f(k,n) be the number of rooted trees with n leaves, all at level k (that is, distance k from the root), up to isomorphism of rooted trees. Prove that f(k+1,n) f(k,n) tends to infinity with n, for fixed k. Is it even true that f(k+1,n) f(k,n) is at least 1 + (n-1) k? Solution by Peter Johnson. Let r be the maximum number of edges from a vertex on one level to the next level, in a tree with n vertices at level k. Then rk is at least n, so r is at least n1 k. From any tree of height k+1, we obtain at most k different trees of height k by suppressing one level (replacing the paths of length 2 crossing this level by single edges). But there is some tree of height k from which at least p(n1 k) trees of height k+1 can be recovered by introducing a new level. (Choose a level where some vertex has at least n1 k upward edges; if the number of such edges is r, then we can split the r edges in p(r) ways giving non-isomorphic trees. (Treat all the other vertices on this level alike.) So f(k+1,n) f(k,n) is at least p(n1 k) k. For motivation, see On the probability of connectedness in Discrete Mathematics 167 168 (1997), 173-185. 3. Let C be a class of graphs closed under forming disjoint unions and connected components. Let cn be the number of connected n-vertex graphs in C, and an the total number of n-vertex graphs in C (up to isomorphism). Suppose that c(x) is the generating function of the sequence (cn); assume that c(x) has non-zero radius of convergence r less than 1. Is it true that, if the ratio cn an tends to a positive limit as n tends to infinity, then c(r) converges? Information I have about this is in the paper On the probability of connectedness in Discrete Mathematics 167 168 (1997), 173-185. 4. The number of strings of n red and blue beads is equal to the number of collections of necklaces of red and blue beads, where rotation of each necklace is permitted and only necklaces with no rotational symmetry are allowed. (The number is 2n in each case.) For example, when n=2, the collections of necklaces are (R)(R), (R)(B), (B)(B), and (RB); (RR) and (BB) are not allowed. The strings are RR, RB, BR, BB. Problem: find a bijective proof of this fact. Solutions were given by Dima Fon-Der-Flass, Rosemary Bailey, and Robin Chapman. Then Roger Bryant drew my attention to C. Reutenauer, Free Lie Algebras, London Math. Soc. Monographs (New Series) 7, Oxford University Press, 1993, which contains this and more. An account of my secret agenda in asking this question is in the paper The algebra of an age, in Model Theory of Groups and Automorphism Groups (ed. David M. Evans), London Math. Soc. Lecture Notes 244, Cambridge University Press, 1997, pp. 126-133. 5. Let G be a finite graph, and X(G) the class of graphs containing no induced subgraph isomorphic to G. For which G is it true that the probability that a (labelled or unlabelled) graph in X(G) with n vertices is connected tends to a limit strictly between zero and one as n tends to infinity? For example, if G is the path of length 3, then the probability of connectedness in n-vertex graphs in X(G) is 1 2 for all n 1. 6. Let s(n) be the number of sequences of elements from the set {1,...,n} for which each term is at least twice the preceding one, and u(n) the number of such sequences in which each term is greater than the sum of its predecessors. It is known that u(n) - u(n-1) = s(n) 2. Problem: Find a bijective proof. Solution by Jeannette Janssen: Use the terms S-sequence and U-sequence for the sequences counted by s(n) and u(n). The left-hand side of the equality counts U-sequences ending in n; removing the last term gives a U-sequence with sum less than n. Given an S-sequence, we can add or remove 1 without changing the S-sequence property. So the right-hand side counts S-sequences containing 1. Now take one of these U-sequences, say u1, u2, ...; the corresponding S-sequence is 1, 1+u1, 1+u1+u2, ... Note: this problem is from my combinatorics textbook, for which a Web page now exists. 7. A triangular prism made of uniform material has cross-section with sides a, b and c (not necessarily equal). It is rolled along a smooth plane so that it rotates about its axis. It gradually loses energy (because of air resistance). What are the probabilities that it lands on each of the three faces (in terms of a, b and c)? There are obviously some points of detail in the physics to discuss. Dima Fon-Der-Flaass has an argument to show that, if the loss of energy is infinitesimally slow, and the triangle has unequal sides, then the probabilities are either 1 2, 1 4, 1 4 or 1 2, 1 2, 0. This assumption is not physically realistic. Paul Glendinning found the even more surprising result that there is a collection of non-trivial intervals, arbitrarily close to 0, such that if the dissipation rate d lies in one of these intervals, then the probabilities are 1, 0, 0 for almost all initial conditions; that is, there is one face on which the prism is almost certain to land. See P. Glendinning, Inaccessible attractors of weakly dissipative systems, Nonlinearity 10 (1997), 507-522. Franco Vivaldi pointed out that, if instead the prism is turned to a random orientation and dropped onto a plane covered with glue, then the probabilities are proportional to the angles subtended by the sides at the centroid of the triangle. 8. It can be shown that, if Fi is the number of orbits of a finite permutation group G on i-tuples of distinct elements, then the proportion of elements of G which are derangements (have no fixed points) is the alternating sum of the quantities Fi i!. (See N. Boston, W. Dabrowski, T. Foguel, P. J. Gies, J. Leavitt, D. T. Ose and D. A. Jackson, The proportion of fixed-point-free elements of a transitive permutation group, Communications in Algebra 21 (1993), 3259-3275.) For an infinite oligomorphic group (one with Fi finite for all i), the alternating sum may make sense (i.e. it may converge, or some other summation method may apply), even though the proportion of derangements does not. Problem: What does this mean? For example, in the infinite symmetric group, Fi=1 for all i, and the sum is 1 e, which is just the limiting proportion of derangements in finite symmetric groups. A more mysterious example is the group of order preserving permutations of the rational numbers. Here, fi=i! for all i, and the sum is 1-1+1-1...=1 2 (according to Euler). In what sense are half of the order-preserving permutations derangements? 9. (A. D. Keedwell). Suppose that x1, ..., xm, y1, ..., yn are positive integers such that there exists a bipartite graph with vertex degrees x1, ..., xm in one bipartite block and y1, ..., yn in the other. (This is equivalent to asserting that the conditions of the Gale-Ryser theorem are satisfied.) Suppose further that all the xi and yj are greater than 1. Show that there is a bipartite graph having these vertex degrees, which has two proper edge-colourings such that for any vertex, the sets of colours appearing on edges at that vertex are the same in both colourings; no edge receives the same colour in both colourings. Note: it is not true that any graph with these vertex-degrees has such a pair of colourings. A counterexample is given by the two degree sequences (3,2,2,2) and (3,2,2,2), when the graph consisting of two 4-cycles joined by an edge does not have such a pair of colourings (though the graph consisting of two vertices joined by three disjoint paths of length 3 has such the same degree sequences and does have such colourings. The conjecture is true if the degrees are all equal, or if every degree is either 2 or 3. This problem is also Problem 16.15 in the list of BCC16 problems (PostScript file). See also Discrete Math. 197 198 (1999), 799-812. Recently, it has been shown by M. Mahdian, E. S. Mahmoodian, A. Saberi, M. R. Salavatipour and R. Tusserkani that this conjecture is a consequence of the celebrated "oriented cycle double cover conjecture" for bridgeless graphs. They have shown its truth in many cases. 10. Let S be the symmetric group on the infinite set X. Consider the product action of S2 on X2, and let an be the number of orbits on subsets of size n. Problem: Find a formula for, or an efficient means of calculating, an. The number an has other combinatorial interpretations: It is the number of zero-one matrices with n ones, with no zero rows or columns, up to row and column permutation. It is the number of bipartite graphs with n edges, no isolated vertices, and a distinguished bipartite block, up to isomorphism. 11. (a) Do there exist eight subsets of the set 1..10 with the properties any two points lie in at most two sets, any two sets meet in at least two points? Solution: yes; I found one by hand: 1, 2, 5, 8, 9 1, 2, 6, 7, 9 3, 4, 5, 7, 9 3, 4, 6, 8, 9 1, 3, 5, 6, 10 2, 4, 5, 6, 10 1, 4, 7, 8, 10 2, 3, 7, 8, 10 (b) Do there exist twelve subsets of the set 1..15 with the above properties? Solution: no (by a combination of case analysis and computer search). Remark. The next interesting open case is eighteen subsets of 1..21. This has been settled in the negative by Pablo Spiga (personal communication). 12. Let An denote the nth element on the axis of symmetry of Pascal's triangle (the middle binomial coefficient 2n choose n). A simple argument with generating functions shows that A0An + A1An-1 + ... + AnA0 = 4n. (The generating function Sum Antn is equal to (1-4t)-1 2, by the binomial theorem.) Problem. Find a "counting proof" of this identity. This problem is due to Alastair King and Andrew Swann. I heard it from Geoff Smith . A solution was found by Omer Egecioglu . Subsequently, Robin Chapman told me that the result is due to Daniel J. Kleitman, A note on some subset identites, Studies in Applied Mathematics LIV 289-293 (1975). Then an even earlier `proof' was unearthed in W. Feller's classic An Introduction to Probability Theory and its Applications, by Alastair King . Here are his comments (with an addition by Robin Chapman): Solution: As observed by Kleitman, the "central binomial convolution identity" amounts to the fact that the number of balanced +1 -1 sequences (random walks) is equal to the number of never balanced ones of the same length. A simple combinatorial proof of this fact can be extracted from the probability literature: W. Feller, An Introduction to Probability Theory and its Applications, Wiley, New York, 1950. The result plays a fundamental role in the analysis of random walks (Main Lemma III.3.1). The proof given in the text is not strictly combinatorial, but Problem III.10.7 asks for a purely combinatorial proof and sketches the construction of a bijection which is attributed to E. Nelson. Confusingly, the sketch appears to construct a bijection with another set of random walks of the same size, namely those which are non-negative. However, a small modification yields the following: Identify the "initial" segment of a walk as being: for a balanced walk, up to the first time it reaches either its minimum value for walks that start -1 or its maximum value for walks that start +1, for a never balanced walk, up to the last time it reaches half its final value with a +1 for walks that start with +1 or with a -1 for walks that start with -1. The bijection reverses the signs and order of the initial segment. Note: the first and last steps in an initial segment have the same sign. Thus balanced walks that start -1 correspond to never balanced ones that start +1 (and vice versa). 13. This problem is due to Sylvie Corteel, Carla D. Savage, Herbert S. Wilf and Doron Zeilberger, and appeared in the Journal of Combinatorial Theory, Series A, 82 (1998), 186-192. Among the ordered pairs of monic polynomials of degree n over GF(2), exactly half consist of relatively prime polynomials. Find a nice bijection between the relatively prime pairs and the non-relatively-prime pairs. I have no further information. 14. Two problems on designs and partitions. 1. Is it possible to partition the 4-subsets of a 16-set into 13 sets of 140 subsets, each set isomorphic to the set of planes in the affine space AG(4,2)? Solution: Rudi Mathon informs me that Luc Teirlinck has shown the non-existence of such a partition. I will add the reference when I find it. Of course, one can now ask for a partition of the 4-subsets of a 32-set into 29 copies of AG(5,2). 2. Is there a Steiner system S(3,5,26) (a set of 5-subsets of a 26-set with the property that any 3 points lie in just one of them) having the property that there are no three of the blocks which have pairwise intersections of size 2 but the intersection of all three is empty? Such a design would give rise to a strongly regular graph on 352 vertices and hence to a biplane with 352 points and the same number of blocks. 15. Two problems on random Latin squares 1. Call a row of a Latin square even or odd according as it is an even or an odd permutation of the set {1,2,...,n}. Prove that the number of even rows of a random Latin square of order n is approximately binomial B(n,1 2). (The best result in this direction is due to R. Hggkvist and J. Janssen, Discrete Mathematics 157 (1996), 199-206: the probability that all rows are even is exponentially small.) 2. Define a probability measure on permutations of {1,2,...,n} as follows: the probability of a permutation is the proportion of Latin squares with first row (1,2,...,n) in which it occurs as the second row. What can be said about this distribution? (For example, a permutation has non-zero probability if and only if it is a derangement.) In particular, prove that the probability that a permutation lies in no transitive proper subgroup of the symmetric group except possibly the alternating group tends to 1 as n approaches infinity. (The analogous result for the uniform distribution was proved by T. Luczak and L. Pyber, Combinatorics, Probability and Computing 2 (1993), 505-512. Their result gives a simple deduction that the group generated by the rows of a random Latin square is almost surely the symmetric group. A solution to this problem would give the same conclusion for a random "normalised" Latin square.) Note added 28 July 2005: I now believe that the distribution defined here "approaches" the uniform distribution on derangements as n grows. For example, when n=7, the numbers of ways of extending a two-rowed Latin rectangle corresponding to each type of derangement (with cycle lengths 7, 2+5, 2+2+3, and 3+4 respectively) are 6566400, 6604800, 6635520, and 6543360 respectively. 16. Find all positive ingers greater than two which can be written as the sum of two powers of the same prime in three different ways. (I know of only six such integers, none of which has more than three different representations of this form.) 17. It is known that the average number of ways in which a positive integer in the range [1,...,n] can be written as a sum of consecutive primes tends to the limit loge2 as n tends to infinity. Is it true that the limiting distribution of the number of representations of this form is Poisson with parameter loge2? This would imply that the density of the set of numbers with no such representation is 1 2. It would also imply that there exist integers with arbitrarily many such representations. Either of these assertions would be a nice result! 18. A problem on Fibonacci numbers. (I learned this problem from John Conway; see also C. Kimberling, Numeration systems and fractal sequences, Acta Arith. 73 (1995), 103-117.) Any positive integer can be written uniquely as the sum of non-consecutive Fibonacci numbers. Hence we can define the Fibonacci successor function on the natural numbers by taking this expression and "moving each Fibonacci number along one". So, for example, 40 = 34 + 5 + 1; its Fibonacci successor is 55 + 8 + 2 = 65. Now produce a table in which each row begins with the smallest number which doesn't occur in any earlier row, and all further entries are obtained by applying the Fibonacci successor function. (So the top row consists of the Fibonacci numbers 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, ...; the next begins 4, 7, 11, ...) It turns out that if we extrapolate each row back two steps using the recurrence relation for the Fibonacci numbers, we obtain the natural numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, ...; this gives a convenient numbering of the rows. Every positive integer occurs exactly once in this table, and every sequence of positive integers satisfying the Fibonacci recurrence relation agrees from some point on with a row of the table. Now let xn denote the fractional part of n times the golden ratio. Let an and bn be the number of earlier terms of this sequence to the left and the right respectively of xn (including 0 and 1). The sequence of pairs (an, bn) begins (1,1), (1,2), (3,1), (2,3), (1,5), (5,2), ... If we look at the pairs occurring in the Fibonacci-numbered positions, we see (1,1), (1,2), (3,1), (1,5), ... In other words, one number in the pair is 1, and it bounces from side to side as we progress along the sequence. This follows from well-known properties of the continued fraction expansion of the golden ratio. Problems. If we consider the pairs in the positions numbered by any fixed row in the table, show that there is a "bouncing number" which alternates sides in the pairs. Which numbers occur as "bouncing numbers"? For example: row number 1 of the table is 4, 7, 11, 18, 29, ...; the pairs in these positions are (2,3), (3,5), (9,3), (3,16), (27,3), ...; so the "bouncing number" is 3. The "bouncing numbers" for rows 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, ... appear to be 1, 3, 2, 5, 8, 5, 9, ... Further information here, in DVI or PostScript . 19. Let p1 be a prime number. For every n, let pn+1 be the smallest prime divisor of p1...pn+1. Is it true that, for every n, there is a prime p1 for which none of the first n terms of the sequence is equal to 3? Is there a prime p1 for which no term of the sequence is equal to 3? (This problem is due to Steve Donkin .) 20. Is the following true? If P is a 2-group which is not elementary abelian, then some non-identity element of the centre of P is a square. Solution: The answer to this question is negative. The smallest counterexamples have order 128, and there are two of them. This was found by Alexander Hulpke and Andreas Caranti. Alexander provided the following example in GAP: gap g:=SmallGroup(128,36); gap z:=Centre(g); Group([ f6, f7 ]) gap r:=List(ConjugacyClasses(g),Representative);; gap s:=Filtered(r,i- Order(i) 2);; gap List(s,Order); [ 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4 ] gap Set(List(s,i- i^2)); [ f4, f5, f4*f7, f5*f6, f3*f4*f5, f3*f4*f5*f6, f3*f4*f5*f7, f3*f4*f5*f6*f7 ] gap List(last,i- i in z); [ false, false, false, false, false, false, false, false ] If not, is the following weaker statement true? If P is a 2-group which is not elementary abelian, and Q is a core-free subgroup of P, then there is an element lying in no conjugate of Q which is a square. Avinoam Mann also suggested the above group as a possible counterexample to the second question. However, Steve Linton and John Murray both checked that there is no core-free subgroup Q for which it is a counterexample. So the question is still open. Solution (13 September 2004): The answer to the second question is also negative. Pablo Spiga found that the group of order 128 with generators (1,2,7,3)(4,8)(5,11)(6,9)(10,14)(12,16,13,15), (1,4,7,5)(2,8)(3,11)(6,13,14,12)(9,15)(10,16), and (1,6)(2,9,3,10)(4,12,5,13)(7,14)(8,15)(11,16) is a counterexample. Indeed, in this group the set of elements with fixed points coincides with the set of squares. This group is SmallGroup(128,836) in the GAP library. The motivating question, whether a vertex-transitive trivalent graph necessarily has a semiregular automorphism of order greater than 2, is currently still open. 21. A symmetric graph design, or SGD, with parameters (n, X, lambda, F), (where n and lambda are positive integers and X and F are graphs on n vertices), is a set {X1, ..., Xn} of subgraphs of the complete graph on {1, ..., n} having the following properties: Xi is isomorphic to X for all i; Xi intersection Xj is isomorphic to F for all distinct i,j; any edge of the complete graph lies in exactly lambda of the graphs X1, ..., Xn. To avoid degenerate cases, we assume that X is neither the complete nor the null graph on n vertices. Symmetric graph designs generalise symmetric BIBDs (symmetric 2-designs, the case where X=Kk and F=Klambda). In this case, condition 2 follows from conditions 1 and 3. Problem: Does condition 2 follow from 1 and 3 in general? Does 3 follow from 1 and 2? Does 1 follow from 2 and 3? (Assume that lambda is greater than 1.) Dima Fon-Der-Flaass has shown that condition 1 does not follow from 2 and 3. An example for lambda=2: it is easy to find n subgraphs of Kn, each having n-1 edges, in such a way that every edge belongs to exactly two of them, and every two subgraphs have a single edge in common. The subgraphs can be arbitrary. Santi Spadaro points out that 3 does not follow from 1 and 2, essentially because we can take a symmetric graph design and choose an arbitrary subset of the graphs Xi. Moreover, 2 does not follow from 1 and 3: take all graphs on n vertices isomorphic to a fixed graph X; then 1 and 3 hold but 2 usually fails. This problem is now completely settled in the negative. (11 June 2002) 22. It is known that, if G is a permutation group in which every non-identity element fixes exactly k points, then either G has a fixed set of size k, or G is one of a finite list of groups (for given k). The problem is to find a good upper bound (in terms of k) for the orders of the groups in this finite list. For example, when k=2, the groups are the tetrahedral, octahedral and icosahedral groups, acting on the vertices, edges and faces of the corresponding polyhedra. (Every rotation has an axis, so has just two fixed points in this action.) So the correct bound is 60. (This is a theorem of Iwahori, J. Fac. Sci., Univ. Tokyo 11 (1964), 47-64.) C. Franchi, in European J. Combinatorics 22 (2001), 821-837, solved this by giving the bound max{60,a!a(a!a-1)}. I don't know whether this can be improved. 23. Let G be a finite group, a an automorphism of G, and X the semidirect product of G by the group generated by a. Suppose that every element of X not in G has prime order p. It follows that the centraliser of a in G is a p-group. Let its order be pm. A theorem of Kegel (Math. Z. 75 (1961), 373-376) shows that G is nilpotent. Then a theorem of Khukhro (Mat. Zametki 38 (1985), 652-657) shows that G has a normal subgroup whose nilpotency class and index are bounded by functions of p and m. Is it true that the nilpotency class of G is bounded by a function of p and m? Solution: This question has been settled in the affirmative by Andrei Jaikin , using a theorem of E. Khukhro, On locally nilpotent groups admitting a splitting automorphism of prime order, Mat. sb. 130 (1986), 120-127. 24. A separation relation on a set is the quaternary relation induced by a circular order on the set by the rule that S(a,b,c,d) holds if a and b separate c and d. (This holds for exactly one of the three partitions of the four points a,b,c,d into two pairs.) It is known that a quaternary relation is a separation relation if and only if its restriction to every 5-element set is a separation relation. Let P be an inversive plane, C a circle of P. Define a relation S on C by the rule that S(a,b,c,d) holds if every circle through a and b meets every circle through c and d. Problem: What does it mean for P if, for every circle C of P, the above relation S is a separation relation? 25. Let Sn and Pn be the respectively the symmetric group (the set of all permutations) and the set of all partitions on the set [1..n]. There is a function F from Sn to Pn which replaces every permutation by the partition corresponding to its cycle decomposition. (a) Is there an efficient method to decide whether a set of partitions is the image under F of a subgroup of Sn? (b) If G and H are subgroups of Sn such that F(G)=F(H), then G and H have the same order. Are they necessarily isomorphic? Note added 19 May 2000: The answer to (b) is negative. Eamonn O'Brien has shown that there are two pairs of groups of order 64 (numbers 19 and 111, and 94 and 249, in the lists in MAGMA and GAP), which act transivitely on 16 points, such that the two groups in each pair give rise to the same sets of cycle partitions. You can find a GAP program to verify this. A preprint ( DVI or PostScript ) gives further details. 26. It is known that the only finite or countably infinite graphs G with the property that, for any partition of the vertex set into two parts, at least one of the parts induces a subgraph isomorphic to G, are a single vertex, the countable complete and null graphs, and the countable random graphs. Which graphs have the property that, for any partition of the vertex set into three parts, the induced subgraph on the union of some two of the parts is isomorphic to the original graph? Note 26 6 2000: This problem has been solved by A. Bonato, D. Delic and S. Thomass: details later. 27. Let G be a subgroup of the symmetric group Sn. For i = 0, ..., n, let pi be the probability that a random element of G has exactly i fixed points, and let Fi be the number of orbits of G on i-tuples of distinct points. These two sequences determine each other. In fact, N. Boston, W. Dabrowski, T. Foguel, P. J. Gies, J. Leavitt, D. T. Ose and D. A. Jackson, Communications in Algebra 21 (1993), 3259-3275, showed that, if P(x) = Sum pi xi and F(x) = Sum Fi xi i! , then F(x) = P(x+1). Now consider the linear analogue. Let G be a subgroup of the general linear group GL(n,q). For i = 0, ..., n, let pi be the probability that the fixed points of a random element form precisely an i-dimensional subspace, and let Fi be the number of orbits of G on linearly independent i-tuples. Again the two sequences determine each other. Problem: Express the relation between these two sequences in terms of generating functions. Note: This problem is now solved (2 August 2000). It is just a case of finding the right definitions of the q-analogues! Here is an account of this ( DVI or PostScript ) 28. (An old problem revisited) Let G be a permutation group on the infinite set X. Assume that G is oligomorphic, that is, G has only finitely many (say fn) orbits on the set of n-element subsets of X. Dugald Macpherson, Proc. London Math. Soc. (3) 46 (1983), 471-486, showed that, if G is primitive on X (preserves no non-trivial equivalence relation) but not highly set-transitive ((that is, fn 1 for some n), then the sequence (fn) grows exponentially, that is, limsup (fn)1 n 1. These two assumptions apply throughout this problem, though analogous problems can be posed with primitivity relaxed. Is it true that lim (fn)1 n exists for any group G? What is the smallest possible value of the limsup? (Macpherson's lower bound of 21 5 has been improved by F. Merola to about 1.324. The smallest known value is 2.) What is the smallest limit point of the set of values of the limsup? Further information on such sequences is available in my survey article . 29. Let n be a positive integer and a a positive real number. It is easy to show that there is a positive real number b (depending on n and a) with the property that, for any positive integers x1, ..., xn, if (1 x1) + ... + (1 xn) a, then (1 x1) + ... + (1 xn) = a-b. Problem: If a is an integer, find an explicit lower bound for b in terms of n and a. 30. Let k be a positive integer. Which finite groups G have the property that, given any k elements of G, there is an automorphism of G which simultaneously inverts them all? Which finite groups G have the weaker property that, given any k elements of G, there is an automorphism of G and a permutation of the elements whose combination maps each element to its inverse? All abelian groups have the first property. Perhaps, for moderately large k, there are not too many more. Added 12 March 2001: The problem of bounding k has been solved by my colleague R.A.Bailey. For a non-abelian group G, the value of k is at most 2 for the first question, 5 for the second. These bounds are best possible. The problem of classifying all groups attaining the bounds (or, indeed, having one of these properties for a positive k) remains open. 31. (This is a variant of Problem 30.) Which finite groups have the property that the automorphism group acts transitively on the set of ordered pairs of non-commuting elements? Added 22 March 2004: Pablo Spiga has pointed out that such a group must be a p-group of Frattini class 2. 32. A graph is N-free if it does not contain the path of length 3 as an induced subgraph. Let c(n) be the number of connected N-free graphs on n vertices. Then the following identity holds. Productn 0(1-qn)-c(n) =1 - q + 2 Sumn 0c(n)qn. This somewhat resembles in form the denominator identity of a Kac-Moody Lie algebra. Problem: Is there a nice connection? 33. Let A0, ..., As be nn matrices of zeros and ones. Consider the following conditions: (1) A0 + ... + As = J, the all-1 matrix. (2) A0 = I, the identity matrix. (3) For all i, there exists j such that AiT=Aj. (3+) For all i, AiT=Ai. (4) There are numbers pijk such that AiAj=SumpijkAk. (4-) There are numbers qijk such that AiAj+AjAi=SumqijkAk. If (1), (2), (3+) and (4) hold, we have an association scheme. Conditions (1), (2), (3) and (4) define a homogeneous coherent configuration. Conditions (1), (2), (3+) and (4-) define a Jordan scheme (so-called because the span of the matrices is a Jordan algebra). The operation of symmetrizing involves, for each non-symmetric matrix Ai, replacing it and its transpose by their sum (a symmetric zero-one matrix). It is easy to see that symmetrizing a homogeneous coherent configuration gives a Jordan scheme. Problem: Is there a Jordan scheme which is not obtained by symmetrizing a homogeneous coherent configuration? 34. A base for a permutation group is a sequence of points whose stabiliser is the identity; it is irredundant if no point is fixed by the stabiliser of its predecessors. Cameron and Fon-Der-Flaass, Europ. J. Combinatorics 16 (1995), 537-544, called a permutation group an IBIS group if all irredundant bases have the same number of elements; they showed that the irredundant bases of an IBIS group are the bases of a matroid. Problem: What is the relation between the Tutte polynomial of the matroid and the cycle index of the permutation group? It is known that sometimes the first determines the second and sometimes vice versa. Perhaps there is a gadget which generalises both! See a paper in the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics for further details. 35. R. D. Carmichael defined a primitive lambda-root or PLR of n to be an element of U(n) (the group of units modulo n) whose order is equal to the exponent of U(n). It is possible to count the number of PLRs of n, for any n. Donald Preece asked: is it possible to count the number of PLRs x having the property that x-1 is a unit? In particular, for which n do all (resp. some, none) of the PLRs have this property? Combinatorics Study Group notes on primitive lambda-roots are available. For reasons explained therein, the number can be counted in principle by inclusion-exclusion, but there is unlikely to be a neat formula ... 36. How large is the largest antichain of subgroups of the symmetric group Sn? More precisely, estimate an sn, where an is the size of the largest antichain and sn the total number of subgroups. 37. Let L(G) be the subgroup lattice of the finite group G. Is the following true or false? Suppose that the Boolean lattice B(n) of subsets of an n-element set is embeddable as a meet-semilattice of L(G), and suppose that n is maximal with this property. Then there is an embedding of B(n) as meet-semilattice, such that the least element of B(n) is a normal subgroup of G. Note: The quaternion group Q8 shows that we cannot make the least element of B(n) correspond to the identity in general. 38. This problem is due to R. A. Bailey. Let A be an affine plane of order q. Is it possible to find, for each point x of A, a permutation px of the set of parallel classes of A with the properties for all x, px is a derangement; for all distinct x, y, if the line xy lies in parallel class C, then Cpx is different from Cpy? There is no solution for q=2, since there are only two derangements and four points. For q=3, there is a solution. It is conjectured that a solution exists for all larger q. 39. This problem is due to Harut Aydinian, and was communicated to me by Oriol Serra. What is the size of the largest sum-free set (one not containing two points and their vector sum) in the square {1,...,n}{1,...,n}? In particular, show that the number is cn2+O(n), and find the constant c. Upper and lower bounds for c are e-1 2=0.6065... and 3 5=0.6 respectively. The lower bound for the number is the integer part of 3n(n+1) 5. Proofs can be found here . 40. Let Z(G) denote the cycle index of the permutation group G, and let F*n(G) be the number of orbits of G on the set of all n-tuples of its permutation domain. Let G and H be permutation groups acting on sets X and Y respectively. We consider GH as a permutation group on XY. We have Z(GH) = Z(G)oZ(H), where siosj = (slcm(i,j))gcd(i,j), and the operation is extended multiplicatively and additively; F*n(GH) = F*n(G)F*n(H). The second assertion is trivially proved directly. The challenge is to deduce it from the first; this will probably require methods of dealing with these very strange operations on polynomials. Solution: Solved by Daniele Gewurz. See a paper by the Daniele Gewurz, Francesca Merola and me. 41. Given n and k, what is the largest number m with the property that, if S is any set of m permutations on the set {1,...,n}, there exists a permutation which agrees with each element of S in at most k places? For k=0, the value of m is the integer part of n 2. For k=1 and even n, it does not exceed n-1, but I do not know whether this is the exact value. (Note: Kzdy and Snevily conjectured that n-1 is the correct value in this case, and that the value is at least n for odd n. This conjecture implies two celebrated conjectures by Ryser and Brualdi on Latin squares: Ryser conjectured that any Latin square of odd order has a transversal, and Brualdi that any Latin square has a partial transversal of size n-1.) A related question: Is it true that, if S is the set of rows of a Latin square of order n, there is a permutation agreeing with each element of S in at most two places? Note: This problem was solved by Ian Wanless; the answer is "yes". A preprint by Ian Wanless and me gives further details. 42. This problem was suggested by Donald Preece. Following Carmichael, a primitive lambda-root of n is a unit in the integers modulo n which has the largest possible order. Let F(n) be the number of primitive lambda-roots of n. If primitive roots of n exist (that is, if n is an odd prime power, or twice an odd prime power, or 4), then F(n)=phi(phi(n)), where phi is Euler's totient function. However, this equation holds for other numbers too; indeed, it is true for more than half of the integers up to a million. In general, the left-hand side is at least as large as the right-hand side. Problem: Is it true that the proportion of natural numbers for which the equation F(n)=phi(phi(n)) holds tends to a non-zero limit? If so, what is the limit? See our notes on primitive lambda-roots for more details. Solution: This problem has been solved by T.W.Mller and J.-C.Puchta: the limiting proportion is zero (though it tends to zero rather slowly). I will give the reference when the paper appears. 43. What is the cardinality of the largest subset of the group PSL(2,q) with the property that any two of its elements agree in at least two points? The two-point stabiliser, with size (q-1) 2 for odd q, has this property, but at least for small q there are larger sets. Pablo Spiga points out that, if q is congruent to 1 mod 4, then the stabiliser of an unordered pair of points has the above property, and has size q-1. 44. Consider the following decision problem. Let p1, ..., pm be partial permutations of a finite set A (that is, bijections between subsets). Suppose that p1 is the identity map on A, and for any i,j, there is at most one k such that pk extends piopj. Does there exist a finite set B containing A, and permutations fi of B extending pi for i=1,...,m, such that, if pk extends piopj, then fiofj=fk? What is the computational complexity of this problem? How is this affected if we insist that B=A? Some notes about this question are here . 45. This problem is due to Patrick Moss, in his Ph.D. thesis (University of East Anglia 2003). A sequence (u(n)) of non-negative integers is said to be realizable if there is a set X and a permutation T of X such that u(n) is the number of fixed points of Tn in X. Moss shows indirectly that, if (u(n)) is realizable, then so are the sequences (u(n)n) and (u(nk)), where k is a fixed positive integer. Problem: Find a pair (X',T') realizing each of these sequences, in terms of the pair (X,T) realizing the original sequence. The first sequence is not likely to be easy. For example, let p be a prime. The constant sequence with value p is realized by the identity permutation of a set of size p. An obvious realization of the sequence (pn) is (X,T), where X is the algebraic closure of the field with p elements and T is the Frobenius map T(x)=xp. The second, however, is reasonably straightforward. Indeed, let f be a function on the natural numbers such that n divides f(n), and suppose that there is a function g such that g(m) divides n if and only if m divides f(n). Then a realization of (u(f(n))) can be constructed directly from a realization of (u(n)). The function f(n)=nk has these properties. The proof is here . 46. This problem is based on joint work with Jarik Nesetril. A graph G is said to be homomorphism-homogeneous, or HH, if any homomorphism from a finite subgraph of G into G can be extended to an endomorphism of G. All finite HH graphs are known. The countable examples we know are disjoint unions of complete graphs of the same size, and graphs which contain the random graph R as an induced subgraph. Problem: Are there any others? 47. The Stirling transform of a sequence a is the sequence b given by b(n)=SumS(n,k)a(k), where S(n,k) are the Stirling numbers of the second kind. What can be said about the asymptotics of a sequence a for which b(n)~ca(n) for some constant c 1? Many interesting sequences (e.g. chains in the partition lattice, zero-one matrices with n ones and no non-zero rows or columns) have this property. 48. Let G be a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel N and Frobenius complement H having orders n and h respectively. Number the elements of N as x1,...,xn. Now let Xij be the nn matrix with (k,l) entry equal to the cardinality of the intersection of xi-1Hxk and xj-1Hxl. Note that Xii=hI while, for i and j distinct, Xij is a zero-one matrix. Is it true that SumkXikXkj=nXij+h(h-1)J, where J is the all-one matrix? Solution: This problem is now solved in the affirmative! 49. Let s and t be the numbers of positive and negative eigenvalues of the adjacency matrix of a graph. A.Torgasev proved that s is bounded by a function of t. Problem: Find the best bound. In particular, there a polynomial (or even a quadratic) bound? 50. Since Problem 20 above has a negative solution, the following problem (due to John Sheehan and me, BCC problem 17.12) is open again. Is it true that a vertex-transitive trivalent graph has a semiregular automorphism (one with all cycles of the same size) of order greater than 2? Note: This has just been settled affirmatively by Pablo Spiga. 51. There is a well-known connection between the three polyhedral groups Alt(4), Sym(4) and Alt(5), on the one hand, and the exceptional root lattices E6, E7 and E8 on the other. (See the McKay correspondence and various results in singularity theory). For a finite group G, let n(G) denote |G| mu(1,G), where mu is the Mbius function of the subgroup lattice of G. Is it just coincidence that, ignoring signs, the values of n(G) for the three polyhedral groups are equal to the connection numbers of the corresponding root lattices (the index in the dual lattice)? The numbers are 3, 2, 1 respectively. The coincidence becomes sharper if we include the correspondence between cyclic and dihedral groups and the root lattices An and Dn, for which the numbers also agree up to sign if n+1 is squarefree. (This requires some charity about the interpretation of the McKay correspondence.) A subsidiary question: If there is a natural explanation, what is the interpretation for root lattices of the sign of the Mbius function? 51. Let G be a permutation group of degree n. The base size of G is the smallest number b(G) of points whose stabiliser is the identity; the separation number of G is the smallest size of a set S of points such that, for any two distinct points x,y, there exists s in S such that x and y lie in distinct orbits of the stabiliser of s. Clearly b(G) =s(G). Is it true that, if G is primitive but not 2-transitive, then s(G) =b(G)logn? See Combinatorics Study Group notes on this problem ( PDF file ). 52. This problem is due to Robin Chapman. Let p be a prime congruent to 3 mod 4, and let r=(p+1) 2. Let (x p) denote the Legendre symbol (taking the values +1, -1, or 0 according as x is congruent to a nonzero square, a non-square, or zero modp. Show that the rr matrix with (i,j) entry ((j-i) p) has determinant1. This is true for primes less than 1000. 53. John Dixon has shown that the number of pairs of permutations on {1,...,n} which generate a transitive subgroup of Sn is equal to (n-1)! times the number of indecomposable permutations of {1,...,n+1}. (Here a permutation is indecomposable if there is no positive k less than n+1 such that it maps the set {1,...,k} to itself.) Problem: Find a bijective proof! 54. A tournament is a directed graph in which every pair of vertices is joined by an arc in one direction. Its score sequence is the list of the out-degrees of the vertices in decreasing order. A permutation (represented by a nn permutation matrix P) is said to be binary if no two 1s in P are on the same northeast-southwest diagonal. The shadow of a binary permutation is the (2n-1)-tuple (indexed from 2 to 2n) with 1 in position i+j if Pij=1, and other entries 0. C. Bebeacua, T. Mansour, A. Postnikov, and S. Severini conjecture that the number of score sequences of n-vertex tournaments is equal to the number of shadows of binary permutations on n elements. Problems: Prove (or refute) this conjecture! If it is true, find a bijective proof. 55. Consider the following operation of "critical set reduction" of a family of sets: Find a minimal proper subfamily which is critical (that is, equality holds in Hall's condition), if one exists; remove elements of its union from all the other sets in the family; now apply this method recursively to the sets not in the critical subfamily. Clearly the new family has the same systems of distinct representatives as the old one. Now suppose that a Su Doku puzzle is given. (By definition, a Su Doku must have a unique solution.) Consider the following algorithm: First, for each blank cell, calculate the "free set" consisting of numbers not appearing in the row, column, or subsquare containing that cell. Now repeat the following until no further progress occurs: if one of the free sets has cardinality 1, write its entry in the puzzle and blank it out; for each row, column, and subsquare, apply critical set reduction to its free sets. A GAP program implementing this algorithm is here (but be warned that the program is not correct). Problem: Find a Su Doku puzzle which is not solved by this algorithm.

Problems in Signed, Gain, and Biased Graphs
Compiled by Thomas Zaslavsky.
Problems in Signed, Gain, and Biased Graphs Problems in Signed, Gain, and Biased Graphs Compiled by Thomas Zaslavsky This is a fairly miscellaneous and incomplete selection of problems that I happen to have taken an interest in -- not necessarily an active interest. Some are open and some are solved or partially solved -- as for example a problem may have been shown to be NP-complete but special cases could still be solved exactly or algorithmically. This list is intended to supplement the many problems in the Bibliography . There is just a small amount of duplication. For the present, the problems here all concern signed graphs. However, many of them have obvious generalizations. References are as cited in the Bibliography . All the terms employed should be defined in the Glossary . If you find any missing, or if you have suggestions for this page, please notify me! NOTE: A PostScript version is available. It is slightly more up-to-date and it is the only one that will be maintained and expanded. I. Direct Measures of Imbalance (June 8-10 1998) Imbalance of a signed graph can be measured in numerous ways. Here are problems concerning some measures that have appeared in the literature. The greatest interest has been in the edge version of frustration. (The problems in part II can be regarded as measuring imbalance in a different way.) Frustration index. Symbol: l( ). This is the least number of edges whose deletion results in a balanced subgraph. Its complement is the largest size of a balanced subgraph. It has turned out to be the measure that is most interesting and arises most often. Calculating l(Sigma). Taking the all-negative signing, l(-G) = the smallest size of the complement of a cut (bipartite subgraph). Thus the problem of calculating l(Sigma) -- more precisely, the question "l(Sigma) = k?" -- is at least as hard as that of finding a maximum-sized cut, which is a standard NP-complete problem. Barahona (1981a, 1982a) proved that the question is solvable in polynomial time if |Sigma| can be embedded in the torus. Is the question polynomial-time solvable if |Sigma| ranges over graphs embeddable in a fixed genus? Is it polynomial-time solvable if, while Sigma ranges over all signed graphs, we are given an oracle that tells us: the genus of |Sigma|? an embedding of G in its minimal orientable surface? Most frustrated signatures. Let l(G) = max l(G, sigma) over all signings of a graph G. Maximizing signatures. Petersdorf's (1966a) Theorem says that -Kn is the unique maximally frustrated signing of Kn. Which other graphs attain maximum frustration index when signed all negative? Among these, for which is the all-negative signing uniquely most frustrated (up to switching, of course)? In particular, is it true that chordal graphs are among the answers to the first two questions? This is plausible since they have lots of triangles. Is it possible for a graph with even girth to attain maximum frustration when all negative? (Maybe the real question is whether girth has anything at all to do with whether the all-negative signature maximizes frustration.) What other kinds of graphs have nice answers to the question of which signings maximize the frustration index? Estimates and values. Akiyama, Avis, et al. (1981a) and Sol and Zaslavsky (1994a) found bounds on l(G) for various kinds of graphs. Brown and Spencer (1971a), followed by Gordon and Witsenhausen (1972a), found asymptotic estimates for complete bipartitie graphs. Brown and Spencer (1971a) found some exact values; also see Sole and Zaslavsky (1994a). Improve the known bounds, both in general and for special types of graphs. Improve the asymptotic estimates for complete bipartite graphs. Find asymptotic estimates for other graphs. Evaluate l(Kr,s) for r = 6, 7, ..., extending the work of Brown and Spencer (r 5) and Sol and Zaslavsky (r = 5). (Possibly a linear programming approach would be feasible for small r.) Restricted frustration index. Here we restrict the deleted edges to lie within a prescribed subset A. Let lA(Sigma) be the smallest size of a subset D of A for which l(Sigma-D) = l(Sigma-A) (the smallest frustration index one can hope to achieve). If A = E this is l(Sigma). If A = E-, the negative edge set, it is the "negative-edge frustration index" (proposed recently by Harary ; the restricted frustration index is a generalization); here l(Sigma-A) = 0. Note that, unlike the frustration index, these numbers are not switching invariant. They are also NP-complete, at least when A = E- (from Sigma form Sigma' by the negative-subdivision trick; then l(Sigma') = lE-(Sigma)). For which subsets A does lA(Sigma) = l(Sigma)? (Obviously it is never l(Sigma).) In particular, find the signed graphs such that lE-(Sigma) = l(Sigma). Find a use for lA(Sigma). (It looks as though it ought to be good for something!) Vertex frustration number (vertex elimination number). Symbol: l0( ). This is the smallest number of vertices whose deletion results in a balanced subgraph. Its complement is the largest order of a balanced subgraph. Taking the all-negative case, it becomes the problem of the largest order of a bipartite induced subgraph (whose NP-completeness I don't happen to know). Can either of l0( ) and l( ) be expressed in terms of the other? Find any theorems about l0( ). Find any theorems about l0(G) = max l0(G, sigma) over all signatures sigma. Cycle indices of imbalance. In the early days of signed graph theory there was interest in the proportions of unbalanced polygons, balanced triangles, and balanced polygons weighted according to length (the weights decreasing with length). These were very hard to work with and not particularly natural as measures of imbalance. All I know of is some work of Norman and Roberts (1972a, b) on weighted measures. Find mathematical properties of the proportion of unbalanced polygons, unbalanced triangles, or unbalanced polygons weighted by length. Examine the proportion of unbalanced triangles for chordal graphs. Is it maximized by the all-negative signature (as is the case with complete graphs)? Are the maximizing signatures unique (up to switching)? Balancing degree. This is Deltab = minimum of Delta(S) over all balancing edge sets S (that is, Sigma - S is balanced). Hoffman's Theorem: There is a function f such that Deltab(Sigma) = f(least eigenvalue of A(Sigma)) when Sigma is a signed complete graph. Does this generalize to other (simple) graphs than complete graphs? To all simple graphs? Find out something about Deltab besides Hoffman's Theorem. II. Packing and Covering (June 8-10 1998) Polygons. Vertex disjoint. Find the largest number of vertex-disjoint unbalanced polygons. There is a deep theorem in here somewhere. This includes as the contrabalanced case Lovasz's theorem on the largest number of vertex-disjoint polygons in a graph. Characterize the signed graphs for which this number is at most k. (The case k = 2 has been solved by Lovsz (unpublished).) Edge disjoint. Find the largest number of edge-disjoint unbalanced polygons. There is also a deep theorem in here somewhere. Characterize the signed graphs for which this number is at most k. Obviously this number is not greater than l(Sigma). When is it equal? (This would be a deep theorem and very interesting.) Balanced Decomposition. A balanced decomposition is a decomposition of Sigma into balanced subgraphs. It is minimal if it decomposes Sigma into the fewest possible subgraphs. (Decomposition means that the edges are partitioned amongst the subgraphs. Every subgraph has all the vertices.) This generalizes bipartite decomposition of unsigned graphs (take all signs negative) and forest decomposition (take all polygons unbalanced). See Zaslavsky (1987b). Balanced decomposition number. The balanced decomposition number is the smallest number of subgraphs in a balanced decompostion. There is a simple formula for signed graphs (Zaslavsky) and a famous formula for contrabalanced biased graphs (Nash-Williams). Find something for all biased graphs. Connected balanced decomposition number. The connected balanced decomposition number (c.b.d.n.) is similar but requires connected subgraphs. Find out something about the c.b.d.n. of a general signed graph. Find the c.b.d.n.'s of signings of particular graphs. Study the maximum c.b.d.n. of all signings of a graph. Study the c.b.d.n. of a biased graph. Balanced decomposition degree. For a balanced decomposition rho of Sigma into subgraphs Si, let Deltadmax(rho) be the maximum Delta(Si) (where Delta denotes maximum degree of a graph) and let Deltadmin(rho) be the minimum. Over all minimal balanced decompositions rho of Sigma, let Deltadmax(Sigma) = the maximum of Deltadmax(rho). These are measures of the degree to which minimal balanced decompositions divide the edges up equitably among the subgraphs. What can one say about Deltadmax(Sigma)? What about the minimum of Deltadmax(rho) over all minimal balanced decompositions of Sigma? What about the maximum and minimum of Deltadmax(Sigma) over all signings of a particular graph? It must be obvious that I'm not sure which are the best numbers to look at in order to get a good picture of how equitable a balanced decomposition can be. Figure out which one(s) make the most sense. Covering by balancing edge sets Consider the intersection of all maximal balanced subsets. Equivalently (by complementation) this is the union of all balancing edge sets. When is it empty? (When does the union of all balancing edge sets cover Sigma?) In general what is it? That is, which edges belong to every maximal balanced subgraph? What is the smallest number of balancing edge sets required to cover the union of all balancing edge sets? Especially, when these sets cover Sigma. Best Viewed With Any Browser Last modified 2002 Dec 9 Created 1998 June 8. Home page of signed graphs . E-mail: zaslav@math.binghamton.edu
Some Open Problems
Open problems and conjectures concerning the determination of properties of families of graphs.
Some Open Problems Some Open Problems and Conjectures These problems and conjectures concern the determination of properties of families of graphs. For example, one property of a graph is its domination number. For a graph G, a set S of vertices is a dominating set if every vertex of G is in S or adjacent to a member of S. The domination number of G is the minimum size of a dominating set of G. Determining the domination number of a graph is an NP-complete problem, but can often be done for many graphs encountered in practice. One topic of some interest has been to determine the dominating numbers of grid graphs (meshes), which are just graphs of the form P(n) x P(m), where P(n) is the path of n vertices. Marilynn Livingston and I showed that for any graph G, the domination number of the family G x P(n) has a closed formula (as a function of n), which can be found computationally. This appears in M.L. Livingston and Q.F. Stout, ``Constant time computation of minimum dominating sets'', Congresses Numerantium 105 (1994), pp. 116-128. Abstract Paper.ps (Postscript) Paper.pdf (PDF) This proof used a combination of dynamic programming and properties of minimal weight paths in graphs (the relevant graphs being state graphs that arise in the dynamic programming). Further, it extends to a great many other properties beyond simple domination, including problems involving covers, independence, packing, mispacking, coding, tilings, etc. It can also be extended to counting problems such as dimer problems, where one is counting the number of maximal packings. For some problems, such as determining if perfect dominating sets exist, the computations are somewhat easier because the relevant state space is smaller and the question is merely whether a path of specified length exists. However, there are several conjectures, open questions, and generalizations not yet finished. A few of these are Conjecture: For every graph G and dimension d, the dominating numbers of the d-dimensional family G x P(n1) x P(n2) ... x P(nd) have a closed form. Even the special case where G is a single point and d=2, is unknown, as our approach only works for d=1 (though G can be arbitrary). I further believe that this is true for a very wide range of properties, not just domination. Question: Is there an interesting formal language L, so that if a property A (such as domination number) can be expressed in L, then there is a closed form for A(G x P(n))? Question: For every m, is there a closed form for the fractional dominating number of P(m) x P(n)? (In fractional domination, one can put arbitrary nonnegative real values at each vertex, with the constraint that for every vertex v, the sum of the values of v and all of its neighbors must be at least 1. The fractional dominating number is the minimum possible sum, over all vertices, of these values.) Our approach cannot be proven to work here, because there is no constraint on the values that may be used. If one could restrict them to a finite set, then the approach would apply. We know of a few other forms of domination which have similar difficulties, though it seems that most of the forms of domination which occur in practice are amenable to our approach. Question: For what other parameterized families F(n) can one prove that the dominating number of G x F(n) has a closed form? For example, our results can be extended from paths to cycles and complete t-ary trees. Recently we realized that one can prove that there is a closed form for some simple doubly-indexed families, such as rooted trees with m subtrees, each of which is P(n), and this approach can be extended to various other construction techniques. Here is some more information about some of my work in dynamic programming , applied to a variety of problems. Copyright 2004 Quentin F. Stout
Three for the Money: The Degree Diameter Problem
Students can understand and work on an unsolved problem in mathematics.
Games on Graphs Three for the Money: The Degree Diameter Problem Description Students can understand and work on an unsolved problem in mathematics. There is a good chance that this problem can be solved by someone who spends enough time experimenting with it. The only skills required to work on it are the ability to draw dots and connect them with lines, and the understanding of four ideas related to graphs: degree , diameter , planarity , and size . (These concepts can be explored in the story Superperson Saves the Monster ). Materials Instructions Ideas for discussion Materials One large copy of the puzzle graph that all students can see, such as one that is drawn on the floor with masking tape, or a copy for each student or group of students. Paper and pencil should be handy so students can experiment and draw their own solutions to the problem. Instructions Explain to students that you are going to tell them about a problem in mathematics that is easy to understand that no one has solved yet. There is no reason why one of them could not be the person to solve it. A famous mathematician, Paul Erdos, has offered a large cash prize for the person who succeeds in drawing the graph that solves this problem. They could win it. Have the students look at the puzzle graph carefully. If they have played the games with Gertrude, Superperson and the Monster, they have already learned a lot about the structure of this graph. Explain that it has four properties or characteristics that mathematicians have found interesting: Its size is 12, because it has 12 vertices . It is planar because it's edges can be drawn in a flat plane without crossing each other. That is why Gertrude, Superperson and the Monster can fly around their Land without needing traffic lights or underpasses. The diameter is 3. If Superperson can't get to where Gertrude is trying to drown the Monster , it is because she overshoots the pond by flying too far. She would never have to fly more than three ponds to get to them. It is 3-regular . When Superperson and the Monster were trying to get Gertrudy to fly to all of the other ponds one by one, they flew into her pond along two of the flyways. This left Gertrude exactly one choice for flying out. This can be done from any pond because every pond has exactly three flyways touching it. Tell the students that no one has ever figured out a way to draw a graph whose size is greater than 12 (a graph with more than 12 vertices) that has all of the other properties. Nor has anyone been able to figure out a good reason why it can't be done. Invite them to make mathematical history--and win a cash prize--by being the one who does it. Have students experiment with this problem and try to draw the graph. If someone succeeds, send mail to MegaMath immediately! When they begin working on the problem, students usually produce graphs that have most of the properties, but not quite all of them. Help students to work together and carefully check each others' graphs. Have students draw large copies of graphs that almost meet the criteria and display them. This is a problem to let rest for a while and return to, off and on, for perhaps weeks. Give students plenty of time to experiment and mull it over. Eventually after much trial and error someone may come up with a graph that meets the criteria. Or perhaps after enough experimentation with various possibilities, someone will be able to explain why it is that size 12 is the largest that such a graph can be. If time and perseverance are what is needed to solve this problem, there is no reason why the person to solve it cannot be a child. Ideas for Discussion What strategies did you use to try and construct the graph? Where did you get stuck? What do you plan to try next? Look carefully at some of the graphs mathematicians have drawn while trying to understand and solve the degree-diameter problem. These are the largest known graphs with the minimum degree and maximum diameter as indicated. It has been proved that the graph above with the maximum degree of 4 is the largest one that can be drawn with diameter 4, but it is not known if it is possible to draw a larger graph than the one shown that has maximum degree 3 and diameter 4. In general it is not known what the largest possible graphs that have relatively small degree and relatively large diameter are. Experiment with some graphs of your own and send in the graphs that you draw and what you have learned about them. Because this mathematical territory has not been studied very much, you may be the one to make a discovery that could find its way into a mathematical journal. If you become convinced that it is impossible to draw a larger graph that is 3-regular, planar and has diameter 3, explain to them that "I tried for hours to do this and couldn't," is not a statement that proves that whatever they were trying to do is impossible. You can show that it is impossible to make a 3-regular, planar, graph of diameter 3 that has 13 vertices. You can demonstrate that there is no sense in trying to do this because it can't be done. Here's how: (It is a Proof by Contradiction . Draw the 13 vertices. Make each vertex degree 3 by drawing the all three edges that will touch each vertex. Now you have 13 vertices, each with half an edge touching it. In order to make the graph that we are trying to make, you will have to connect pairs of half-edges to make single whole edges. But count the number of half-edges--there are 13 x 3 = 39 of them! Every time you connect two vertices together you will use up two of the half-edges. There is no way to connect the vertices together without having one half-edge left over. Therefore, you can be sure that you are wasting your time trying to make a 3-regular graph of size 13, much less one that is planar and has diameter 3. What other sizes of graph are certain not to work? What next
Open Problems in Graph Algorithms
Compiled by Jerry Spinrad.
Some Open Problems Please mail me with any corrections, or any other comments. The list is very rough at the moment. Bipartite Classes 1) Chordal Bipartite Graphs The fastest known algorithms for recognizing chordal bipartite graphs involve lexically ordering a matrix, and checking for a forbidden configuration. The checking is linear, and the ordering takes O(mlogn) or O(n^2) time. The ordering algorithm is designed for any matrix, whether or not it has the forbidden configuration. Can you use the fact that the matrices are special to design a linear time algorithm? 2) Find a Geometric Model for Chordal Bipartite Graphs (Spinrad) 3) Bipartite graphs with no induced cycle of length 6 (Spinrad) Count, recognize, find a good representation of them. 4) Perfect Elimination Bipartite Recognition Perfect elimination bipartite graphs are discussed in Golumbic's book, and correctly model perfect Gaussian elimination in arbitrary matrices. However, the best recognition algorithm for these graphs takes O(n^3) time, and actually performing Gaussian elimination can be done in O(n^3) time. These graphs would seem much more useful if they could be recognized in much less time than performing the elimination. 5) Chordal Bipartite Plus weight condition (Shamir) Must find gamma-free ordering in which for all row column pairs topleft + bottomright = bottomleft + topright. O(mnlogn) Alon, ?, Hochbaum, Ditrich. Chordal Graphs and Variants 1) Finding Simplicial Vertices (Spinrad) Can you find a simplicial vertex in an arbitrary graph in time less than matrix multiplication? 2) Finding holes in graphs How efficiently can you determine whether a graph has no hole of length k? The best I can do is O(n^(k-.634)). Can you determine whether a graph has a chordless cycle containing a particular vertex v in linear time? This would allow an O(m^2) algorithm for k = 5. Can you recognize graphs which are "generalized simplicially reducible" efficiently; i.e., graphs which can be reduced to the empty graph by successively removing vertices which are not in the center of a $P sub k$? Is it NP-complete to determine the smallest value $k$ such that $G$ is "$k$-simplicially reducible"? Can you determine whether a pair of vertices is in a common hole of length 4 in polynomial time? 3) Chi-boundedness of hole-free graphs (Sritharan) Hole free (not antihole-free) graphs, can the chromatic number be hugely different from the size of the maximum clique? ) 4) Extending cycles in chordal graphs (Hendry, XingXing) For a chordal graph G, and a cycle (not induced) of length k max cycle in G, can you always add a vertex and rearrange to get a cycle of length k+1? Circle Graphs and Variants 1) Polygon in circle graphs (Lubiw) A circle graph is the intersection graph of chords in the circle. What do you get for the intersections of k-gons in the circle? The two most natural subproblems to me here are recognition of triangle in circle, and general kgon- I very much doubt that this gives all graphs, but I have no proof at the moment. Circular-Arc Graphs 1) Certificate that G is not circular-arc (Eschen, Raghavan) Although we have an efficient recognition algorithm, can you give an easy proof to someone that G is not circular-arc? Bouchet has done this for circle graphs, for example. 2) Dimension of "circular-arc interesection orders" (Trotter) Consider a circular-arc graph which is a comparability graph. Qin and Trotter show the dimension is at most 4; can it be as high as 4 or not (it can be 3). Comparability Graphs 1) Transitive graph recognition (Spinrad) Can you recognize transitive graphs in less time than it takes to perform the transitive closure of the graph, or are these problems provably of the same complexity? A fast transitive graph recognition algorithm would improve the time complexity of the best known algorithm for comparability graph recognition. The same problem is interesting for the transitive reduction. 2) Verification of transitivity You can verify the result of a matrix multiplication in O(n^2) time probabilistically. For checking if a graph is transitive, can you make this deterministic? Note: you cannot use the result above to get O(n^2) probabilistic transitive graph recognition; the result does not apply (at least immediately) to Boolean matrix multiplication. 3) Chordal comparability graphs (Ma, Spinrad) Is there a good intersection model for this class? Can we tell in O(n) time whether the transitive closure of a graph is chordal, if we are given the diagram? 4) Intersections, Strings on 1 wall (Sritharan) The intersection graphs of strings on 2 walls is the cocomparability graphs; what do we get if we restrict to one wall? 5) New approaches to Transitive Graph Recognition (Mada, Sri) 5a) Given a transitive graph G, can we compute the transitive reduction of G in O(n^2) time? 5b) Given 2 graphs G1 and G2, can we verify in O(n^2) time that G1 is the transitive reduction of the transitive graph G2? 5c) Can you reduce verification of boolean matrix multiplication to recognition of transitive graphs? Note: transitive verification can be reduced to both transitive reduction verification and matrix verification in O(n^2) time; what of the other possible reductions? 5d) Can you come up with an O(kn^2 + m) transitive closure reduction algorithm, where k is the number of missing extra edges in the transitive closure reduction? 6) Problems when given subset of transitive closure (Spinrad, Mohring) Suppose that you are given a subset of the transitive closure of a partial order (in my algorithms, I have always assumed that you have the transitive closure). Is it possible to perform substitution decomposition without performing a general transitive closure algorithm? This is possible for series-parallel partial orders, for example. There are two separate subproblems of this; in one, you may assume that you have the diagram of the partial order, while in the more general case you have anything which contains the transitive reduction and is contained in the transitive closure. Can you determine whether a partial order is N-free in linear time, if no assumption is made about the "completeness" of the input? Decompositions 1) Clique separator decomposition (Whitesides, Tarjan) Can you improve the time complexity, 1st for primetesting and then for the whole decomposition? I would suggest seeing what is implied by a and b on the same side; perhaps partitioning and pseudoparallelism will work. 2) Generalized join decomposition (Hsu, JCT B 1987) Hsu describes a decomposition, which has an alternative chartacterization as follows: can G be partitioned into X, Y such that the edges between X and Y do not contain an induced 2K2 (edges within X,Y ignored). Can we determine whether G has such a decomposition in polynomial time? Which graphs are "completely decomposable" with respect to the join decomposition, and can they be recognized efficiently; or alternatively, does this notion actually make sense at all (it could depend on the decomposition sequence)? I note that all permutation graphs are completely decomposable with respect to generalized join. 3) Decomposition with forbidden subgraphs (Spinrad) This problem is a generalization of the problem above. Given a fixed bipartite subgraph H, can G be partitioned into X, Y so that the bipartite subgraph of edges between X and Y does not contain H (we might also assume that X and Y are at least as large as the smaller side of the bipartition of H)? Can you characterize the class of graphs H for which this is polynomial (or, is it always polynomial?) 4) Split decomposition We can find the split decomposition of an undirected graph in O(n^2) time. Can you do the same for a directed graph? Should be doable using the same ideas. 5) Ordered Neighborhood Decomposition (Ma) A (separable) chordal graph a separator which is a clique. Having a clique separator allows you to decompose G so that holes and antiholes are preserved. The same could be said if you allow the separator to be a set of vertices whose neighborhood are ordered by set inclusion. Can you find such a separator in polynomial time? What kind of graphs are "completely separable" in this sense? 6) Hole preserving decomposition Can you find algorithms for the following types of decompositions? Partition V into V1, V2 such that every long hole is contained in one of the 2 sets. Partition E into E1, E2 with the same property. Partition V into V1, V2 such that at least one edge is within each side, and any hole of length k has at least k-1 vertices on a single side. Dimension See also the excellent list of problems prepared by Trotter, and my paper on dimension and algorithms from ORDAL. 1) Do Problems become easy if given a Realizer? Can you find a problem which is easy on 3-dimensional partial orders if you are given the three lists which represent the graph? Sometimes, this might be the way the information is given to you. (Obviously, the dimension problem is not an interesting example). I might suggest domination problems. How about transitive closure or reduction? How quickly can you do these in 3d posets with and without the realizer (see ORDAL paper). Same for clique, independent set, independent set clique of size n^.5, ... 2) Dimension Calculation for Special Classes Find interesting classes of posets for which the dimension is calculable in polynomial time. Some open classes are interval orders, cycle-free orders (note: these have dimension at most 4), W-free, bounded width. For height 1 partial orders, are the 3 dimensional orders recognizable in polynomial time? 3) Dimension of Chordal bipartite graphs (Spinrad) How fast can dimension grow with n? It must grow as fast as clogn; O(logn) would give a good representation for graphs in the class 4) Dimension Completion (Spinrad) This problem came up when I thought about writing a program to try to test the conjecture that a class of partial orders was always 3 dimensional. How would you test 3-dimensionality? The obvious approach is to generate all extensions, and see whether each can be part of a realizer of size 3. The question is, once the first list is fixed, can you determine in polynomial time whether 2 more lists suffice? 5) Constructing a realizer Greedily (Spinrad) If you are trying to construct a realizer, a natural approach is to try to "satisfy" as many pairs as possible with a linear extension; a pair of unrelated elements x,y is satisfied if each comes before the other in some linear extension. Given a set of linear extensions, can you find an extension which satisfies the maximum number of pairs? Given a poset, can you find 2DPO which satisfies maximum number of pairs? 6) Dimension reducing extension (Rival) Is there a way to add one relation at a time so that the dimension never increases on the way to finding a linear extension? 7) Construct poset from realizer (Spinrad) Perhaps the simplest open problem to state here is constructing the poset in linear time from a set of 3 linear extensions; for others see ORDAL paper. 8) Crossing Number (Urrutia) The crossing number is an alternative parameter for measuring partial orders. A partial order on n vertices is represented as a set of n functions, with a b iff the function corresponding to a is always above the function corresponding to b. For any such representation R, we can count C(R) = the maximum number of times that two functions corresponding to unrelated pairs of vertices cross. The crossing number is the minimum value of C(R) over all representations of R. Can the crossing number be computed in polynomial time (conjectured NP-complete for all k 1). What is the expected value of the crossing number for an n element poset? 9) Problems on 2 dimensional partial orders Open problems include several variants of scheduling problems (e.g. weighted completion time), optimal linear arrangement, jump number, and counting the number of linear extensions. Many of these are also open for other classes (interval orders, N-free, cycle-free, ...). 10) Dimension Approximation Is there a constant c such that for any partial order of dimension k, you can construct a realizer of size at most ck in polynomial time? This is a famous open problem, but even the following is unknown and must be "easy"; given a 3 dimensional poset, produce a set of O(n^(1-epsilon)) linear extensions which realize the poset. Alternatively, show that dimension approximation requires OMEGA(n^epsilon) times the optimal for some epsilon. Interval and Interval Variants 1) Astroidal Triple-free Graph recognition (Corneil, Stewart, Olariu) Can you recognize them in o(n^3) time? 2) Tolerance Graphs (Golumbic, Monma) In a tolerance graph, each vertex is associated with both an interval and a positive value t called a "tolerance". Two vertices are adjacent if their overlap is greater than the minimum tolerance of the two vertices; this generalizes both the interval graphs (tolerance = 0) and the permutation graphs (tolerance = length of interval). Can you recognize tolerance graphs in polynomial time? 3) Intershold Graphs In this variant of threshhold graphs, you assign weights to vertices so that 2 vertices are adjacent if and only if their sum is within a certain interval (rather than being over some threshhold). Can they be recognized in polynomial time? 4) Variants on boxicity 2 (Sri) What happens when you change the definition of boxicity? Some variants include eliminating the isoorientation, equal sized boxes, squares, "nestable" boxes, no proper containment of boxes, small integer coordinates. Can you prove that you change the set? Can you recognize and find algorithms for any of these variants? 5) Optimization in Boxicity 2 Graphs How fast is clique for boxicity 2 graphs (in P because the number of maximal cliques is O(n^2)), both with and without the representation? Independent set, boxicity 2, also looks like it should be easy at least if given the representation, but I can't see it off the top of my head. 6) Weakly triangulated astroidal triple-free graphs This generalizes interval graphs; open problems include recognition, optimization, counting the number, and finding a representation. Perfect Graphs and Variants I won't even include the famous ones; perfect graph conjecture, recognize perfect graphs, recognize Berge graphs, recognize odd hole free graphs 1) Optimizing perfectly orderable graphs (Chvatal) Is there a "combinatorial" polynomial-time algorithm to find a maximum independent set in a graph G, when you are also given a perfect order on G. By combinatorial, I mean that you do not use ellipsoid techniques; since all perfectly orderable graphs are perfect, the algorithm of Gr$roman o dotdot$tschel Lovasz and Schrijver finds a maximum independent set in polynomial time using the ellipsoid method. What if no order is given? Of course, this is open for general perfect graphs as well. Permutation Graphs 1) Covering Graph Equivalent of Permutation Graph (Spinrad) Given an undirected graph, can the edges be directed to be the covering graph of a 2 dimensional partial order? See if you can determine this in polynomial time. The problem is also relevent for covering graph of other classes, such as N-free or interval orders. 2) Find a "large" independent set or clique It is well known that you can find an independent set or clique of size at least n^.5. Cab you find some such in O(n) time? Similar question for perfect graphs; can you find such a set quickly? The set does not need to be maximum, of course, and for comparability graphs (must beat matching). 3) Number of Prime Permutation Graphs(Stewart) What percentage permutation graphs are prime, i.e., have a unique representation? As opposed to arbitrary graphs, the percentage of nonprime graphs does not go to 0 for large values of n, but does the percentage of prime permutation graphs go to 0? 4) Circular Permutation Graphs (Sritharan) Optimization problems, generalizations to k concentric circles 5) Astroidal triple-free co-AT-free graphs Generalizes the comparability cocomparability characterization. Open problems include recognition, optimization, counting, representation. Representations 1) Distance Hereditary Graphs Find an intersection representation 2) Hereditary and 2^O(nlogn) = ? Implicit Representation(Kannan,Naor,Rudich) Open classes include containment or intersection graphs of circles, intersection graphs of lines or squares with general orientation in the plane, and many others. More generally, can you store any hereditary class with 2^f(n) members using O(log(f(n)) n bits per vertex, so that adjacency can be tested using only the information stored at the vertices in question? 3) Optimization Requiring Representation Find any example of a problem which is NP-complete on a class of graphs if the input is in adjacency list form, and polynomial if the class is given with its natural representation. Visibility Graphs 1) Maximum clique in visibility graph, given G only (Lubiw) It is O(n**3) if you are given the polygon 2) Recognition Famous open problem, not known to be in NP, still open if you are given the ordering of points on the boundary of the polygon. 3) Induced Visibility Graphs For various reasons, I feel that these are a less studied but more interesting, and possibly more tractable, class of graphs. All problems above are still open, as are some others. For starters, are the permutation interval chordal bipartite graphs in this class (I doubt it)? 4) Number of Induced Visibility Graphs (Spinrad) The key question here is, if G is a graph on n vertices, and G is an induced subgraph of a visibility graph H, how big can the minimum size H be? I can show it is O(nlogn$alpha$(n)), but it could be linear. It depends in part on the following question: how many visibility lines can touch the outer boundary of the polygon? There is a published paper claiming O(n), but we have found a serious error, and I think that the answer is probably O(nlogn). Can you find an efficient representation? 5) 3-clique ordering (Lubiw) Lubiw showed that every visibility graph has a "3-clique" ordering, i.e. you can start with a triangle and always continue with a vertex which is adjacent to all vertices from some previous triangle. How fast can you find such an ordering, either in a general graph or visibility graph? The obvious algorithm is something like O(n^7). Weakly Triangulated Graphs 1) Verifying weakly triangulated graphs (Spinrad) Can I verify a certificate that a graph is weakly triangulated using o(n^4 log^.5n) time? This seems like it could be easier than the larger problem of recognizing in o(n^4) time. 2) Weakly Triangulated Comparability Graphs (Sri) Recognize, count the number, find an efficient representation. Contains chordal bipartite graphs. 3) Every weakly triangulated graph without P5 is perfectly orderable (Chvatal) Resolve this conjecture. 4) G s.t. all induced subgraphs have a simplicial or cosimplicial vertex (Sri) Recognition, optimization, etc. Other Classes 1) Claw-free recognition As far as I know, you need to beat beat n * MM; do not expect to beat O(MM), where MM is the time to perform matrix multiplication 2) Circle intersection graphs (Golumbic) Apparently, almost nothing is known about the intersection graphs of circles in the plane, so recognition, structural characterization, and representation problems are all open. 3) $B sub 1$-orientation (Urrutia) An undirected graph is $B sub 1$ orientable if the edges can be directed so that (u,v), (w,v) implies that u and w are adjacent in G. These graphs include among other classes the chordal graphs and circular-arc graphs. Can you recognize these in o(nm) time? For the nonalgorithmically inclined, Urrutia has this conjecture: if G is $B sub 1$ orientable, then G is the intersection graph of subtrees of a planar graph. 4) P5 and P5 Complement free Generalizes cographs in much the same way that weakly triangulated graphs generalize chordal graphs. 5) Forbidden Submatrices Consider matrices which can be permuted to avoid a specific submatrix. Can you count the number of matrices, and give a nice representation? I am especially interested in forbidding the 2 by 2 identity matrix; recognizing these faster than O(c^2r^2) is of interest as well. 6) Brittle Graphs (Eschen) G is brittle if for all induced subgraphs, there is either some vertex which is not the endpoint of any $P sub 4$ or there is some vertex which is not the midpoint of any $P sub 4$. Recognize in o(m^2). 7) Independent sets in well Covered Graphs (Spinrad) A well covered graph is a graph in which every maximal independent set is maximum. If you know G is well covered, it is trivial to find a maximum independent set in G, but recognizing well-covered graphs is co-NP-complete. Find a polynomial algorithm which either finds a maximum independent set in G, or answers that G is not well-covered. 8) Containment Graphs, Paths in a Tree Recognize efficiently. 9) Recognize intersection G of subgraphs of 2-trees Send comments or new problems to include to spin@vuse.vanderbilt.edu

Problems number above 50 on my list are from sources other than the Bondy and Murtry text. Bojan Mohar lists some additional graph theoretic problems. 1. The reconstruction conjecture . (S.M. Ulam, 1960) 2. A graph G is embeddable in a graph H if G is isomorphic to a subgraph of H. Characterise the graphs embeddable in the k-cube. (V.V. Firsov, 1965) 3. Prove: Every 4-regular simple graph contains a 3-regular subgraph. (N. Sauer, 1973) Conjecture 3 was proved in 1985 by L. Zhang: Every 4-regular simple graph contains a 3-regular subgraph, J. of Changsha Railway Institute 1 (1985), 130-154. Communicated to me (November 1996) by: Rob Pratt, Department of Mathematics, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, CB 3250, 331 Phillips Hall, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3250 (rpratt@math.unc.edu) Julio Subocz notes that this is also called Berge's conjecure or the Berge-Sauer conjecture and, in a conference in Lisboa (November 1995), Y. H. Hamidoune cited a proof (approximately 65 pages) by Taskinov of the conjecture. Yair Caro : Solved by Taskinov in 1982 and the proof is not 65 pages.

Then every r-regular graph contains a k-regular subgraph (Here, the graph need not be simple). 1. Zhang, Li Min, 4-regular graphs without 3-regular subgraphs.

Prove: If k 2, there exists no graph with the property that every pair of vertices is connected by a unique path of length k. (A. Kotzig, 1974) Kotzig verified his conjecture for k 9. Communicated by Yair Caro : Yuansheng Yang, Jianhua Lin, Chunli Wang,and Kaifeng Li. On Kotzig's conjecture concerning graphs with a unique regular path-connectivity. Discrete Mathematics 211(2000), 287-298. Abstract: Kotzig (see Bondy and Murty, Graph Theory with Applications, North-Holland, Amsterdam, 1976) conjectured that there exists no graph with the property that every pair of vertices is connected by a unique path of length k,k 2. Kotzig (Graph Theory and Related Topics, Academic Press, New York, 1979, pp. 358-367) has proved this conjecture for 2 k 9. Xing and Hu (Discrete Mathematics 135(1994), 387-393) have proved it for k 11. Here we prove this conjecture for the remaining cases k=9,10,11. Roland Hggkvist raises a question about one of the steps in the Xing and Hu article. ( click here if you want to read the details) Perhaps the problem is still open. 5. Prove: Every connected graph G on n vertices is the union of at most [(n+1) 2] edge-disjoint paths. (T. Gallai, 1962) See Lovsz (1968). Yair Caro : L.Pyber, JCTB 66(1996), proved that the edges of every connected graph on n vertices can be covered by at most n 2 + O(n3 4) paths. Communicated by Yair Caro : Nathaniel Dean and Mekkia Kouider. Gallai's conjecture for disconnected graphs. Discrete Mathematics 213(2000), 43-54. Abstract: The path number p(G) of a graph G is the minimum number of paths needed to partition the edge set of G. Gallai conjectured that p(G) =(n+1) 2 for every connected graph G of order n. Because of the graph consisting of disjoint triangles, the best one could hope for in the disconnected case is p(G) =2n 3. We prove the sharper result that p(G) =u 2+2g 3 where u is the number of odd vertices and g is the number of nonisolated even vertices. Communicated by Yair Caro : Fan Genghua. Subgraph coverings and edge switchings. JCTB 84(2002), 54-83. Abstract: By using the so-defined circuit path transformations together with an edge-switching method, the following conjectures were proved in this paper. (i) The edges of a connected graph on n vertices can be covered by at most ceiling(n 2) paths, which was conjectured by Chung. (ii) The edges of a 2-connected graph on n vertices can be covered by at most ceiling((2n-1) 3) circuits, which was conjectured by Bondy. An immediate consequence of (ii) is a theorem of Pyber that the edges of a graph on n vertices can be covered in at most n-1 edges and circuits, which was conjectured by Erds, Goodman and Psa. 6. Prove: Every 2-edge-connected simple graph G on n vertices is the union of n-1 cycles. (P. Erds, A.W. Goodman, L. Psa, 1966) See the comment for Question 5, above. 7. Prove: If G is a simple block on n vertices with at least n 2+k vertices of degree at least k, then G has a cycle of length at least 2k. (D.R. Woodall, 1975) Hao Li has essentially solved this one. He gets a cycle of length at least 2k-13 if G is not hamiltonian. Abstract . (Communicated to me by Galen E. Turner III.) 8. Let f(m,n) be the maximum possible number of edges in a simple graph on n vertices which contains no m-cycle. If it known that f(m,n) = [n2 4] if m is odd and 2m n+4; and f(m,n) = (n-m+2)(n-m+1) 2 + (m-1)(m-2) 2 if 2m n+2. Determine f(m,n) in the remaining cases. Yair Caro : f(4,n) essentially solved recently by Furedi. Zoltan Furedi, On the number of edges of quadrilateral-free graphs. JCT-B 68(1996), 1-6. 9. Let f(n) be the maximum possible number of edges in a simple graph on n vertices which contains no 3-regular subgraph. Determine f(n) (P. Erds and N. Sauer, 1974). Since there is a constant c such that every simple graph with at least cn8 5 edges contains the 3-cube (P. Erds and M. Simonovits, 1970), clearly f(n) cn8 5. Yair Caro : The best known lower bounds are given in the following paper: L.Pyber , V.Rodel , E.Szemeredi, Dense graphs without 3-regular subgraphs, JCTB 63(1995), 41-54 . There, reference to an earlier work of Pyber is also given. Julio Subocz : We relax the condition 3-regular subgraph, in the form: Let us call a graph 3-sum-0 if the degrees are multiples of 3. I think that this idea is due to Alon-Kallai-Friedland, Every four-regular graph plus an edge contains a three regular subgraph, J.Comb.Th.(B) 37(1984), 92-93. Let g(n) be the maximum possible number of edges in a simple graph of n vertices which contains no 3-sum-0-subgraph. Then g(4) = 5, g(5) = 8, g(6) = 10, g(7) = 13, but g(n) = 2n, for all n = 8. This was obtained with the aid of a computer program. Julio C. Subocz G., Some Values of Olson's Constant. Proceedings of the VIII Jornadas de Teora de Grafos. Cuman, Venezuela. (1998) To appear. 10. Determine which simple graphs G on n vertices have exactly one cycle of each possible length k, 3 (R. Entringer, 1973). Yair Caro : There are only seven known UPC-graphs (unipancyclic graphs) having respectively 3, 5, 8, 8, 14, 14, 14 vertices (Entringer). It is proved that there are only four outerplanar UPC-graphs having 3, 5, 8, 8 vertices respectively. It is conjectured that the above 7 graphs are the only UPC-graphs. Essentially there was no progress since 1986 !! The only available papers on the subject so far are : Shi, Y.B., Yap, H.P,. and Teo, S.K., On uniquely r-pancyclic graphs, Graph Theory and Its Applications: East and West, (Jinan, 1986), 487-499, Ann. New York Acad. Sci., 576, New York Acad. Sci. New York, 1989. MR 93d:05088 Shi, Y.B., Some theorems of uniquely pancyclic graphs, Discrete Math. 59(1986), 167-180. MR 87j:05103 from Klas Markstrom : A note on uniquely pancyclic graphs, technical report No 8 2000, Department of Mathematics, Ume University, submitted to Discrete Mathematics. I have shown that there are no such graphs on less than 56 vertices other than the seven previously found. The proof is basically a computer search. I also give some bounds for the number of edges in a uniquely pancyclic graph. 11. Let f(n) be the maximum possible number of edges in a graph on n vertices in which no two cycles have the same length. Determine f(n) (P. Erds, 1975) Using Math reviews, I found: 94i:05048 05C35 Lai, Chun Hui. On the size of graphs with all cycle having distinct length. (English. English summary) Discrete Math. 122(1993), no. 1-3, pages 363-364. Summary: "Let $f(n)$ be the maximum number of edges in a graph on $n$ vertices in which no two cycles have the same length. In 1975, Erdos raised the question of determining $f(n)$ [see J. A. Bondy and U. S. R. Murty, Graph theory with applications, Elsevier, New York, 1976; MR 54 117]. We prove that for $n\geq 365t\sp 2-45t+1$ one has $f(n)\geq n+9t-1$. We conjecture that $\liminf (f(n)-n) \sqrt n\leq\sqrt 3$." 96h:05121 05C38 (05C35) Lai, Chun Hui(PRC-ZZTC), The number of edges of graphs in which all cycles have different lengths.(Chinese. Chinese summary) Zhangzhou Shiyuan Xuebao (Ziran Kexue Ban) 8(1994), no. 4, pages 30-34. In 1975, P. Erdos proposed the problem of determining the maximum number $f(n)$ of edges in a simple graph of $n$ vertices in which any two cycles are of different lengths. The present paper proves that $ f(n) \ge n+19t-1$ for $t=360q+7 (q \ge 1)$ and $n\ge \tfrac{1381}{9}t\sp 2+\tfrac {26}{45}t+\tfrac{98}{45}$. Consequently, $$\liminf\sb {n \to \infty} {f(n)-n \over \sqrt n} \ge \sqrt {2 + {487 \over 1381}} \approx 1.53, $$ which is better than the previous bounds $\sqrt 2 \approx 1.41$ [Y. B. Shi, Discrete Math. 71 (1988), no. 1, 57--71; MR 89i:05169] and $\sqrt{2+{16 \over 73}} \approx 1.49$ [C. H. Lai, Discrete Math. 122 (1993), no. 1-3, 363--364; MR 94i:05048]. From Yair Caro : E. Boros, Y. Caro, Z.Furedi and R.Yuster: Covering non-uniform hypergraphs (submitted, 2000). The authors prove f(n) (this is a part of a much more general Turan-type problem considered). A lower bound due to Lai and other shows f(n) = n + sqrt(2n). See also: Chunhui Lai, Graphs without repeated cycle lengths. Australasian Journal of Combinatorics 27(2003), 101 - 105. In this paper, it is proved that $$f(n)\geq n+36t$$ for $t=1260r+169 \,\ (r\geq 1)$ and $n \geq 540t^{2}+\frac{175811}{2}t+\frac{7989}{2}$. Consequently, $\liminf\sb {n \to \infty} {f(n)-n \over \sqrt n} \geq \sqrt {2 + {2 \over 5}}.$ We make the following conjecture: \par \bigskip \noindent{\bf Conjecture.} $$\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} {f(n)-n\over \sqrt n}=\sqrt {2.4}.$$ 12. Prove: If G is a simple graph on n vertices and the number of edges of G is greater than n(k-1) 2, then G contains every tree with k edges (P. Erds and V. Ss, 1963). Erds and Gallai proved that every such graph contains a path of length k. Yair Caro: There are many partial results obtained in the last 10 years or so. The most notable are : The conjectured bound holds true if G is C4-free. J.F.Scale and M.Wozniak JCT_B 70(1997), 367-372 (extending an earlier result of Barndt and Dobson). The conjecture is true for every tree on k vertices having a vertex adjacent to at least (k-2) 2 leaves. Sidorenko, Combinatorica 9(1989), 207-215. 13. (Solved) Find a (6,5)-cage. An (m,n)-cage is an m-regular graph with girth n and, subject to this, with the least possible number of vertices. The Petersen graph is a (3,5)-cage and has 10 vertices. The Heawood graph is a (3,6)-cage and has 14 vertices. The Mcgee graph is a (3,7)-cage and has 24 vertices. The Tutte-Coxeter graph is a (3,8)-cage and has 30 vertices. The Robertson graph is a (4,5)-cage and has 19 vertices. The (
