Maximal τ-critical linear hypergraphs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A construction using finite affine geometries is given to show that the maximum number of edges in a τ-critical linear hypergraph is (1 - o(1))τ2. This asymptotically answers a question of Roudneff [14], Aharoni and Ziv [1].
