Chromatic numbers and homomorphisms of large girth hypergraphs

Abstract

We consider the problem of determining the minimum chromatic number of graphs and hypergraphs of large girth which cannot be mapped under a homomorphism to a specified graph or hypergraph. More generally, we are interested in large girth hypergraphs that do not admit a vertex partition of specified size such that the subhypergraphs induced by the partition blocks have a homomorphism to a given hypergraph. In the process, a general probabilistic construction of large girth hypergraphs is obtained, and general definitions of chromatic number and homomorphisms are considered.
