# Rainbow Matchings in Graphs

## Florian Pfender

## Universität Rostock

## Abstract

A rainbow subgraph in an edge colored graph is a subgraph whose edges are all colored differently. In this talk we will look at rainbow matchings, i.e. sets of pairwise disjoint edges whith distinct colors. This topic has connections to both Latin squares and to matchings in 3-uniform hypergraphs. We will study conditions which guarantee the existence of large rainbow matchings, i.e. sets of pairwise disjoint edges. Further, we will be surprised by the complexity of finding rainbow matchings in very simple graphs.
