Of all that made it bright;
Beyond its silent portal
No love, nor life, nor light.

And now for one grim eve to sup
With Death, the bailiff, at the door.

Where cloudless mid—March sunshine falls,
Rhone, through broad belts of green,
Flecked with the light of almond groves,
Upon itself reverting, roves
Reluctant from the scene.

In science:

It follows from the results of [Koz06] that if G is dismantlable, then Hom(S, G) is contractible for any graph S .
The universality of Hom complexes
The use of dismantlability of the underlying graph to prove the fixed point theorem for finite group actions is, due to our knowledge, a novelty brought by the current paper.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
Subsequently, many other complexes studied in connection with group actions have dismantling properties.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
Dismantlability of graphs and LC-contractibility of complexes.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
We now consider the analogue of dismantlability for a simplicial complex X investigated in the papers [CY07, Mat08]. A vertex v of X is LC-removable if lk(v , X) is a cone.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
For flag simplicial complexes, the LC-contractibility of X is equivalent to dismantlability of its graph G(X) because an LC-removable vertex v is dominated by the apex of the cone lk(v , X) and vice versa the link of any dominated vertex v is a cone having the vertex dominating v as its apex.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
Anstee-Farber [AF88] established that bridged graphs are dismantlable.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
Chepoi [Che97] noticed that any order of a bridged graph returned by BFS is a dismantling order.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
In this section, we show that the underlying graphs of weakly systolic complexes are dismantlable and that a dismantling order can be obtained using LexBFS.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
Other consequences of dismantling are given in subsequent sections.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
Any LexBFS ordering of a local ly finite weakly bridged graph G is a dismantling ordering.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
This shows that indeed any LexBFS order is a dismantling order.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
Hence the order returned by LexBFS is indeed a dismantling order of the weakly bridged graph G.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
To show that any finite weakly systolic complex X is LC-contractible it suffices to notice that, since X is a flag complex, the LC-contractibility of X is equivalent to the dismantlability of its graph G = G(X), and hence the result follows from Theorem 4.1.
Dismantlability of weakly systolic complexes and applications
To show that the Rips complex Xk is LC-contractible, since Xk is a flag complex, it suffices to show that its graph G(Xk ) is dismantlable.
