A Note on Norine's Antipodal-Colouring Conjecture

  • Vojtěch Dvořák


Norine's antipodal-colouring conjecture, in a form given by Feder and Subi, asserts that whenever the edges of the discrete cube are 2-coloured there must exist a path between two opposite vertices along which there is at most one colour change. The best bound to date was that there must exist such a path with at most $n/2$ colour changes. Our aim in this note is to improve this upper bound to $(\frac{3}{8}+o(1))n$.
