  Reconstruction conjecture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Informally, the reconstruction conjecture in graph theory says that graphs are determined uniquely by their subgraphs.
The conjecture has been verified for a number of infinite classes of graphs, such as regular graphs (graphs in which all vertices have the same number of edges attached to them).
In fact, it was shown that not only are almost all graphs reconstructible, but in fact that the entire deck is not necessary to reconstruct them --- almost all graphs have the property that there exist three cards in their deck that uniquely determine the graph.

 TPS Standards for Reconstruction
Reconstruction will be used to depict vanished or non-surviving portions of a property when documentary and physical evidence is available to permit accurate reconstruction with minimal conjecture, and such reconstruction is essential to the public understanding of the property.
Reconstruction of a landscape, building, structure, or object in its historic location will be preceded by a thorough archeological investigation to identify and evaluate those features and artifacts which are essential to an accurate reconstruction.
Reconstruction will be based on the accurate duplication of historic features and elements substantiated by documentary or physical evidence rather than on conjectural designs or the availability of different features from other historic properties.

 Reconstruction conjecture
Indeed, there are exactly two graphs on two vertices, the single edge and two isolated vertices, each of which leads to the same deck of cards, namely to two cards showing each a single vertex.
However, for graphs with at least three vertices it has been conjectured in 1942 by P. Kelly and S.
Ulam that it is always possible to reconstruct the graph from its deck of cards.

The conjecture was open for about 20 years, and was solved by Grigori Perelman with a surprisingly short argument.
Like any living being, it must have a soul and a body, which two constitutive principles are the two levels of the mediation between the purity of the model and the lack of determination of the receptacle.
This is particularly clear in the platonic reconstruction of the constitution of the soul of the cosmos.

 The Reconstruction Conjecture
Since, the number of edges of G is reconstructible, the degree sequence of G is reconstructible.
In 1967, Tutte proved that the dichromatic (rank) and Tutte (dichromate) polynomials are reconstructible.
Thus, N(1,s) is reconstructible and, hence, all coefficients of Q(G;t,z) and Q(G;t,z) itself are reconstructible.

 Reconstruction conjecture
Informally, the reconstruction conjecture in graph theory suggests that a graph is determined uniquely by it's sub-structures.
Reconstruction Conjecture Let [G] and [H] be finite graphs with at least three vertices, and let there be a bijection [\sigma:V(G) \rightarrow V(H)] such that [G-v] is isomorphic to [H-\sigma(v)] for every [v \in V(G)].
In fact, it was shown that not only are almost all graphs reconstructible, but in fact that the entire deck is not necessary to reconstruct them.

The Graph Reconstruction Conjecture was proposed by P.J. Kelly and S.M. Ulam in 1942.
The existential reconstruction number of graph G, (rn(G), is defined as the minimum number of vertex-deleted subgraphs of G required to uniquely reconstruct G up to isomorphism.
The deliverables of this project will be statistics on reconstruction numbers organized by numbers of vertices, a list of graphs with notable reconstruction numbers (at least all graphs with (rn(G)>3), a detailed write-up and analysis of the results, and the source code of the program used to calculate the results.

 TCS Daily - Conjecture vs. Science
And yet, in producing the reconstructed global average temperature, Oerlemans gives the combined temperature history of these 15 glaciers the same weight as the combined history of the 154 glaciers from the Northern Hemisphere (which are a weighted combination of smaller regions within the Northern Hemisphere).
Given these limitations, it's clear that producing a temperature reconstruction that is representative of the historical conditions across the Southern Hemisphere cannot be done from Oerlemans' existing dataset.
Emphasis should be placed on the temperature reconstruction of the mid-to-high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere where a greater number of locations are represented by the existing data.

 Graph Reconstruction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The reconstruction conjecture claims that every graph on at least three vertices is uniquely determined by its collection of vertex deleted subgraphs.
Even though it is one of the foremost unsolved problems in Graph Theory, work on it has slowed down, may be due to the general feeling that existing techniques are not likely to lead to a complete solu­tion.
Here we give the results that have appeared recently in some selected variations of the reconstruction problem like edge reconstruction, degree associated reconstruction, vertex switching reconstruction and reconstruc­tion numbers.

 RR-1660 : Towards the reconstruction of poset   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Abstract : The reconstruction conjecture for posets is the following : every finite poset P of more than three elements is uniquely determined - up to isomorphism - by its collection of (unlabelled) one-element-deleted subposets [ P - {x} : x V (P) ].
We show that the following parameters are reconstructible : the number of minimal (respectively, maximal) elements, the level structure, the ideal-size sequence of the maximal elements, the ideal size (respectively, filter-size) sequence of any fixed level of the HASSE-diagram and the number of edges of the HASSE-diagram.
This is considered to be a first step towards a proof of the reconstruction conjecture for posets.

The extension of spectral techniques proceeds at three levels: using eigenvectors associated with an arbitrary labelling of graph vertices, using geometrical invariants of eigenspaces such as graph angles and main angles, and introducing certain kinds of canonical eigenvectors by means of star partitions and star bases.
One objective is to describe graphs by algebraic means as far as possible, and the book discusses the Ulam reconstruction conjecture and the graph isomorphism problem in this context.
Further problems of graph reconstruction and identification are used to illustrate the importance of graph angles and star partitions in relation to graph structure.
