### Linear algebra and bootstrap percolation

Abstract:

In $\HH$-bootstrap percolation, a set $A \subset V(\HH)$ of initially 'infected' vertices spreads by infecting vertices which are the only uninfected vertex in an edge of the hypergraph $\HH$. A particular case of this is the $H$-bootstrap process, in which $\HH$ encodes copies of $H$ in a graph $G$. We find the minimum size of a set $A$ that leads to complete infection when $G$ and $H$ are powers of complete graphs and $\HH$ encodes induced copies of $H$ in $G$. The proof uses linear algebra...
