Since 1997 a considerable effort has been spent on the study of the swap (switch) Markov chains on graphic degree sequences. All of these results assume some kind of regularity in the corresponding degree sequences. Recently, Greenhill and Sfragara published a breakthrough paper about irregular simple and directed degree sequences for which rapid mixing of the MCMC is known (for e.g., scale-free graphs with $\gamma>2.5$). In this paper we present two group of theorems. The first one contains a result similar to the theorem of GS for bipartite degree sequences, which slightly improve their result on directed degree sequences. The second group presents another vast region of bipartite degree sequences with rapidly mixing MCMC sampling process.

We study the problem of guarding orthogonal art galleries with horizontal mobile guards (alternatively, vertical) and point guards, using “rectangular vision”. We prove a sharp bound on the minimum number of point guards required to cover the gallery in terms of the minimum number of vertical mobile guards and the minimum number of horizontal mobile guards required to cover the gallery. Furthermore, we show that the latter two numbers can be computed in linear time.

The following small result has been sitting untouched in my research folder since December, 2014. As I have not been able to produce other interesting results in the field it has remained unpublished until now. A hypergraph is properly 2-colorable if its vertex set can be colored blue and red such that there is no monochromatic edge. Lemma 1 (TRM, 2014). Let $\mathcal{H}$ be an $r$-uniform hypergraph on $n$ vertices.
