We classify real matrices where the standard power coincides with
the Hadamrad entry-wise. The problem appeared recently in vol 51 of
IMAGE journal. Time permitting we will present some further problems
from this journal.
It is well known that not every combinatorial configuration admits a geometric realization with points and lines. Moreover, some of them do not admit even realizations with points and pseudolines, i.e. they are
not topological. In this paper we show that every combinatorial configuration can be realized as a quasiline arrangement on a real projective plane. A quasiline arrangement can be viewed as a map on a closed surface. Such a map can be used to distinguish between two ”distinct” realizations of a combinatorial configuration as a quasiline arrangement. Based on work in progress with several mathematicians including Leah Berman, Juergen Bokowski, Gabor Gevay, Jurij Kovič and Arjana Žitnik.
In this talk, I will briefly remind you the two known approaches for classifying arc-transitive abelian or elementary abelian covering graphs. Also I’ll introduce some of my recent work on arc-transitive DIHEDRAL regular covers of cubic graphs.
