Sharp Lower Bounds on the Spectral Radius of Uniform Hypergraphs Concerning Degrees

Liying Kang, Lele Liu, Erfang Shan


Let $\mathcal{A}(H)$ and $\mathcal{Q}(H)$ be the adjacency tensor and signless Laplacian tensor of an $r$-uniform hypergraph $H$. Denote by $\rho(H)$ and $\rho(\mathcal{Q}(H))$ the spectral radii of $\mathcal{A}(H)$ and $\mathcal{Q}(H)$, respectively. In this paper we present a  lower bound on $\rho(H)$ in terms of vertex degrees and we characterize the extremal hypergraphs attaining the bound, which solves a problem posed by Nikiforov [Analytic methods for uniform hypergraphs, Linear Algebra Appl. 457 (2014) 455–535]. Also, we prove a lower bound on $\rho(\mathcal{Q}(H))$ concerning degrees and give a characterization of the extremal hypergraphs attaining the bound.
