If you have a question about this talk, please contact Eoin Long. I will present a counterexample to the following well-known conjecture: for every k, r, every graph G with clique number at most k and sufficiently large chromatic number contains a triangle-free induced subgraph with chromatic number at least r. Then I will discuss a related counterexample, due to Brianski, Davies, and Walczak, for another conjecture about graphs of large chromatic number. Joint work with Alvaro Carbonero, Patrick Hompe, and Benjamin Moore.
