The Alon-Tarsi Number of A Toroidal Grid

By Zhiguo Li, Zeling Shao, Fedor Petrov and Alexey Gordeev

Abstract

The Alon-Tarsi number $AT(G)$ of a graph $G$ is the smallest $k$ for which there is an orientation $D$ of $G$ with max indegree $k-1$ such that the number of even and odd circulations contained in D are different. In this paper, we show that the Alon--Tarsi number of toroidal grids $T_{m,n}=C_m\Box C_n$ equals $4$ when $m,n$ are both odd and $3$ otherwise
