## 3-Colourability of Arrangements of Great Circles ★★

Author(s): Felsner; Hurtado; Noy; Streinu

Consider a set of great circles on a sphere with no three circles meeting at a point. The arrangement graph of has a vertex for each intersection point, and an edge for each arc directly connecting two intersection points. So this arrangement graph is 4-regular and planar.

**Conjecture**Every arrangement graph of a set of great circles is -colourable.
