Gr\"obner Bases and Graph Colorings
Jes\'us A. de Loera
We explore applications of computational methods in
commutative algebra to graph theory.
We give an explicit universal Gr\"obner basis for the radical ideal of a
family of linear subspace
arrangements related to
chromatic numbers. We describe how to apply Gr\"obner bases to
enumerate colorings. We also discuss similar results for a family of
zero dimensional ideals.
