Let G = PGL(2, q) be the projective general linear group acting on the projec- tive line P_q. A subset S of G is intersecting if for any pair of permutations \pi and \sigma in S, there is a projective point p in P_q such ...

We prove an analogue of the classical Erdős-Ko-Rado theorem for intersecting sets of permutations in finite $2$-transitive groups. Given a finite group $G$ acting faithfully and $2$-transitively on the set ...

In this paper we prove an Erdős-Ko-Rado-type theorem for intersecting sets of permutations. We show that an intersecting set of maximal size in the projective general linear group $PGL_3(q)$, in its natural ...

In this paper we give a proof of the Mikl´os-Manickam-Singhi (MMS) conjecture for some partial geometries. Specifically, we give a condition on partial geometries which implies that the MMS conjecture holds. Further, ...
• (International Linear Algebra Society, 2013-09)
The minimum number of distinct eigenvalues, taken over all real symmetric matrices compatible with a given graph G, is denoted by q(G). Using other parameters related to G, bounds for q(G) are proven and then applied to ...
• (Elsevier, 2015)
The positive semidefinite zero forcing number of a graph is a graph parameter that arises from a non-traditional type of graph colouring and is related to a more conventional version of zero forcing. We establish a relation ...
• (2014)
The zero forcing number and the positive zero forcing number of a graph are two graph parameters that arise from two types of graph colourings. The zero forcing number is an upper bound on the minimum number of induced ...
