  • Subject: Mathematics - Combinatorics

Building on recent work of Dvo\v{r}\'ak and Yepremyan, we show that every simple graph of minimum degree $7t+7$ contains $K_t$ as an immersion and that every graph with chromatic number at least $3.54t + 4$ contains $K_t$ as an immersion. We also show that every graph o... View more
