**Naslov**/ Title: Star normal quotients and twisted wreath quasiprimitive groups

**Vsebina**/ Abstract:

I'll present some joint work with Eda Kaja in which we have constructed a new infinite family of locally transitive graphs. For a given graph in this family, the full automorphism group has two orbits on the vertex set, on one orbit the action is quasiprimitive of Twisted Wreath type and on the other orbit the action is not quasiprimitive. Thus these graphs fall into the class of `star normal quotients'. Previously only one such example was known.

*The independence number of a tree decomposition T of a graph is the smallest integer k such that each bag of T induces a subgraph with independence number at most k. If a graph is given together with a tree decomposition with a bounded independence number, then the Maximum Weight Independent Set (MWIS) problem can be solved in polynomial time. Motivated by this observation, we consider six graph containment relations---the subgraph, topological minor, and minor relations, as well as their induced variants---and for each of them characterize the graphs H for which any graph excluding H with respect to the relation admits a tree decomposition with bounded independence number. Furthermore, using a variety of tools including SPQR trees and potential maximal cliques, we show how to obtain such tree decompositions efficiently.As an immediate consequence, we obtain that the MWIS problem can be solved in polynomial time in an infinite family of graph classes that properly contain the class of chordal graphs. In fact, our approach shows that the Maximum Weight Independent H-Packing problem, a common generalization of the MWIS and the Maximum Weight Induced Matching problems, can be solved in polynomial time in these graph classes.This is joint work with Martin Milanič and Kenny Štorgel. *

**Naslov**/ Title: What does Birkhoff-James orthogonality know about the norm?

**Vsebina**/ Abstract:

There are several possibilities to generalize the relation of orthogonality from Euclidean to arbitrary normed spaces. Among the better known is Birkhoff-James orthogonality, which is defined, in one of the equivalent ways, as $x \perp y$ if $y$ lies in the kernel of the supporting functional for $x$. This relation is homogeneous in both factors, but unlike Euclidean space it is not necessarily additive nor symmetric. We assign a (directed) graph to this relation with the nonzero vectors as the nodes and where each pair of orthogonal vectors forms a directed edge.

With the help of this graph one can show that Birkhoff-James orthogonality alone knows how to calculate the dimension of the underlying space, it knows whether the norm is smooth or not and whether it is strictly convex or not, and actually knows everything about the norm of smooth reflexive spaces up to (conjugate) linear isometry.

Among possible applications we mention the study of homomorphisms of the relation (i.e. not necessarily linear mappings that preserve orthogonality).

This is a joint work with Lj. Arambašić, A. Guterman, R. Rajić, and S. Zhilina
