Abstract. The guessing number problem is the following. What is the largest family of colorings of a graph such that the color of each vertex is determined by its neighborhood? This problem is equivalent to finding protocols for network coding. I will discuss results on general graphs, and recent asymptotic results for odd cycles, which is joint work with Ross Atkins and Fiona Skerman.
