# COUNTEREXAMPLES TO THE COLORFUL TVERBERG CONJECTURE FOR HYPERPLANES

@article{Carvalho2022COUNTEREXAMPLESTT, title={COUNTEREXAMPLES TO THE COLORFUL TVERBERG CONJECTURE FOR HYPERPLANES}, author={Jos{\'e} Pedro Carvalho and Pablo Sober{\'o}n}, journal={Acta Mathematica Hungarica}, year={2022}, volume={167}, pages={385 - 392} }

Karasev [16] conjectured that for every set of r blue lines, r green lines, and r red lines in the plane, there exists a partition of them into r colorful triples whose induced triangles intersect. We disprove this conjecture for every r and extend the counterexamples to higher dimensions.

### Optimal bounds for the colored Tverberg problem

- Mathematics

We prove a "Tverberg type" multiple intersection theorem. It strengthens the prime case of the original Tverberg theorem from 1966, as well as the topological Tverberg theorem of Barany et al.…

### Counterexamples to the topological Tverberg conjecture

The “topological Tverberg conjecture” by Barany, Shlosman and Sz˝ ucs (1981) states that any continuous map of a simplex of dimension (r 1)(d + 1) to R d maps points from r disjoint faces of the…

Many of the strengthenings and extensions of the topological Tverberg theorem can be derived with surprising ease directly from the original theorem: For this, we introduce a proof technique that…
