### Finding subgraphs with high treewidth and constant degree

I am given a graph $G$ with treewidth $k$ and arbitrary degree, and I would like to find a subgraph $H$ of $G$ (not necessarily an induced subgraph) such that $H$ has constant degree and its treewidth ...

### Complexity of counting 3-colourings of planar bounded degree graphs

The following are known: It is #P-complete to count the number of 3-colourings of a planar graph (with respect to randomized reductions) . For all $d\geq 3$, it is #P-complete to count the number ...

### Is feedback vertex set problem solvable in polynomial time for 3-degree bounded graphs?

Feedback Vertex Set (FVS) is NP-complete for general graphs. It is known to be NP-complete for degree-$8$ bounded graphs due to a reduction from vertex cover. The Wikipedia article says that it is ...

### The number of rooted ordered trees of max-out degree $k$

An ordered tree (also known as ordinal tree and plane tree) is a rooted tree in which the children of each node are ordered. It is known that the number of the ordered tree with $n$ edges is the $n$'...

### Sensitivity and Low-Degree Approximation under Non-Uniform Distribution

I am searching for generalizations of analysis of Boolean functions when the input strings are distributed according to a general non-uniform distribution, possibly with arbitrary dependencies between ...

### relations between the degrees of a boolean function and its absolute function

Given a boolean function $f:\{0,1\}^n\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$ of degree $d$, is there any upper bound in terms of $d$ on the degree of the function $|f|$, where $|f|(x)=|f(x)|$. Here the degree of $f$ ...

### Random functions of low degree as a real polynomial

Is there a (reasonable) way to sample a uniformly random boolean function $f:\{0,1\}^n \to \{0,1\}$ whose degree as a real polynomial is at most $d$? EDIT: Nisan and Szegedy have shown that a ...

### Bias of a random boolean low degree polynomial

What is the bias of a random Boolean function that can be represented as a low degree polynomial over the reals, i.e. has low Fourier degree? More specifically, is it true that if we take a uniformly ...

### Degree restriction for polynomials in $\mathsf{VP}$

why do we need the restriction on the degree for a polynomial to be in VP due to which $(\prod_{i=0}^{n} x_i)^{2^n}$ $\notin$ VP even though it has a poly-size circuit?

### hardness of approximating the chromatic number in graphs with bounded degree

I am looking for hardness results on vertex coloring of graphs with bounded degree. Given a graph $G(V,E)$, we know that for any $\epsilon>0$, it's hard to approximate $\chi(G)$ within a factor ...

### bounded outdegree bipartite spanners

Given an undirected graph $G = (V,E)$ and an integer $k > 0$, our objective is to find a subgraph $G' = (V ,E')$ where $E' \subseteq E$ such that $G'$ has the three following properties : $G'$ ...
