Characterization of the degree sequences of (quasi) regular uniform hypergraphs

Abstract : In hypergraph theory, determining a characterization of the degree sequence $d=(d_1,d_2,\ldots,d_n)$ where $d_1\ge d_2\ge\ldots,d_n$ are positive integers, of an $h$-uniform simple hypergraph $\cal H$, and deciding the complexity status of the reconstruction of $\cal H$ from $d$, are two challenging open problems. They can be formulated in the context of discrete tomography: asks whether there is a matrix $A$ with positive projection vectors $H=(h,h,\ldots,h)$ and $V=(d_1,d_2,\ldots,d_n)$ with distinct rows. In this paper we consider the two subcases where the vector $V$ is an homogeneous vector, and where $V$ is almost homogeneous, i.e., $d_1-d_n=1$. We give a simple characterization for these two subcases, and we show how to solve the related reconstruction problems in polynomial time. To reach our goal, we use the concepts of Lyndon words and necklaces of fixed density, and we apply some already known algorithms for their efficient generation.
