Real zeros of chromatic and flow polynomials
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
I will survey proof techniques, results, and open problems concerning the real zeros of chromatic polynomials and flow polynomials of graphs. In particular I will present a multivariate proof, due to Alan Sokal and myself, of the result that chromatic polynomials have no roots in the interval (1,32/27], which is much simpler than my original proof.
A general, but dated, reference for this talk is:

If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
