If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Andrew Treglown. In 1974, Erdős and Rothschild introduced a new kind of extremal problem, asking which n-vertex graph has the maximum number of monochromatic-triangle-free red/blue edge-colourings. While this original problem strengthens Mantel’s theorem, recent years have witnessed the study of the Erdős-Rothschild extension of several classic combinatorial theorems. In this talk, we seek the Erdős-Rothschild extension of Sperner’s Theorem. More precisely, we search for the set families in 2^{[n]} with the most monochromatic-k-chain-free r-colourings. Time and interest permitting, we shall present some results, sketch some proofs, and offer open problems. This is joint work with Roman Glebov, Benny Sudakov and Tuan Tran.
