Equitable coloring of hypergraphs

Hanna Furmańczyk , Paweł Obszarski


A hypergraph is equitably k-colorable if its vertices can be partitioned into k sets/color classes in such a way that monochromatic edges are avoided and the number of vertices in any two color classes differs by at most one. We prove that the problem of equitable 2-coloring of hypergraphs is NP-complete even for 3-uniform hyperstars. Finally, we apply the method of dynamic programming for designing a polynomial-time algorithm to equitably k-color linear hypertrees, where k≥2 is fixed.
