Lions and Contamination

We consider a special variant of a pursuit-evasion game called lions and contamination. In a graph whose vertices are originally contaminated, a set of lions walk around the graph and clear the contamination from every vertex they visit. The contamination, however, simultaneously spreads to any adjacent vertex not occupied by a lion. We study the relationship between different types of clearings of graphs, such as clearings which do not allow recontamination, clearings where at most one lion moves at each time step and clearings where lions are forbidden to be stacked on the same vertex. This is joint work with Meghana M. Reddy and Enrico Mann.
