## Inequality of the means ★★★

Author(s):

**Question**Is is possible to pack rectangular -dimensional boxes each of which has side lengths inside an -dimensional cube with side length ?

Keywords: arithmetic mean; geometric mean; Inequality; packing

## Ding's tau_r vs. tau conjecture ★★★

Author(s): Ding

**Conjecture**Let be an integer and let be a minor minimal clutter with . Then either has a minor for some or has Lehman's property.

Keywords: clutter; covering; MFMC property; packing

## Woodall's Conjecture ★★★

Author(s): Woodall

**Conjecture**If is a directed graph with smallest directed cut of size , then has disjoint dijoins.

## Ryser's conjecture ★★★

Author(s): Ryser

**Conjecture**Let be an -uniform -partite hypergraph. If is the maximum number of pairwise disjoint edges in , and is the size of the smallest set of vertices which meets every edge, then .

Keywords: hypergraph; matching; packing

## Packing T-joins ★★

Author(s): DeVos

**Conjecture**There exists a fixed constant (probably suffices) so that every graft with minimum -cut size at least contains a -join packing of size at least .
