This paper is a survey on discrete isoperimetric type problems. We present here as some known facts about their solutions as well some new results and demonstrate a general techniques used in this area. The main attention is paid to the unit cube and cube like structures. Besides some applications of the isoperimetric approach are listed too. 1 Introduction This paper is devoted to the discrete isoperimetric problem. This problem may be considered as an analog of the well known continuous problem and has some similar features. The discrete isoperimetric problem began to be studied a very long ago and a lot about it's solutions is known now. If there is the only solution of the continuous version, the discrete one, considered for the unit cube, has generally more solutions with much more rich structure, which have no direct continuous analogs. It is mainly due to the facts that, at first not for all values of cardinality of a subset (which is defined as the number of cube points in the...
TRACES OF FINITE SETS: EXTREMAL PROBLEMS AND GEOMETRIC APPLICATIONS
, 1992
"... Given a hypergraph H and a subset S of its vertices, the trace of H on S is defined as HS = {E ∩ S: E ∈ H}. The Vapnik–Chervonenkis dimension (VCdimension) of H is the size of the largest subset S for which HS has 2 S edges. Hypergraphs of small VCdimension play a central role in many areas o ..."

Given a hypergraph H and a subset S of its vertices, the trace of H on S is defined as HS = {E ∩ S: E ∈ H}. The Vapnik–Chervonenkis dimension (VCdimension) of H is the size of the largest subset S for which HS has 2 S edges. Hypergraphs of small VCdimension play a central role in many areas of statistics, discrete and computational geometry, and learning theory. We survey some of the most important results related to this concept with special emphasis on (a) hypergraph theoretic methods and (b) geometric applications.

A Tight Upper Bound on the Number of Candidate Patterns
, 2001
"... In the context of mining for frequent patterns using the standard levelwise algorithm, the following question arises: given the current level and the current set of frequent patterns, what is the maximal number of candidate patterns that can be generated on the next level? We answer this question by ..."

In the context of mining for frequent patterns using the standard levelwise algorithm, the following question arises: given the current level and the current set of frequent patterns, what is the maximal number of candidate patterns that can be generated on the next level? We answer this question by providing a tight upper bound, derived from a combinatorial result from the sixties by Kruskal and Katona. Our result is useful to reduce the number of database scans.

For all definitions not included in this article we refer to Engel's book [2]. 1.1. Submatrix Orders. Let M be a matrix and R and C its sets of rows and columns, respectively. Clearly, every nonempty submatrix L of M can be considered as a pair (S; T ), where ; 6= S ` R; ; 6= T ` C and L consists of all cells lying in a row from S
A Variant of the Discrete Isoperimetric Problem

We consider a variant of what is known as the discrete isoperimetric problem, namely the problem of minimising the size of the boundary of a family of subsets of a nite set. We use the technique of `shifting' to provide an alternative proof of a result of Hart. This technique was introduced in the early 1980s by Frankl and Furedi and gave alternative proofs of previously known classical results like the discrete isoperimetric problem itself and the KruskalKatona theorem. Hence our purpose is to bring Hart's result into this general framework.

We give a short new proof of a version of the Kruskal–Katona theorem due to Lovász. Our method can be extended to a stability result, describing the approximate structure of configurations that are close to being extremal, which answers a question of Mubayi. This in turn leads to another combinatorial proof of a stability theorem for intersecting families, which was originally obtained by Friedgut using spectral techniques and then sharpened by Keevash and Mubayi by means of a purely combinatorial result of Frankl. We also give an algebraic perspective on these problems, giving yet another proof of intersection stability that relies on expansion of a certain Cayley graph of the symmetric group, and an algebraic generalisation of Lovász’s theorem that answers a question of Frankl and Tokushige.
