“Bipartite graphs admitting a k-NU polymorphism”

A k-ary polymorphism on a graph G = (V, E) is a mapping from V k to V that in some sense preserves the edge relation E. Such a polymorphism m is said to be near-unanimity (NU) if when at least k 1 of the inputs agree, then the value of m will be that near-unanimous input. Relational structures that admit an NU polymorphism possess many nice properties. This seminar will provide a generating set for irreflexive graphs which admit a k-NU polymorphism.
