### An extremal problem for graphs having every edge contained in a 4-clique

This is a follow-up to Graphs with many triangles but few complete graphs on 4 vertices
I'm looking for an upper bound for the difference between the number of edges and the number of 4-cliques in a ...

### Graphs with many triangles but few complete graphs on 4 vertices

Let $G$ be a graph on $n$ vertices with $an^2$ edges containing at most $an^2/2$ copies of $K_4$. If there are cubically many triangles, say $cn^3$, then there is at least one edge that is not ...

### A graph with few edges everywhere

Given a graph $G(V,E)$ whose edges are colored in two colors: red and blue.
Suppose the following two conditions hold:
for any $S\subseteq V$, there are at most $O(|S|)$ red edges in $G[S]$
for any ...

### existence of triangle-free graphs for sparse regular graphs of degree at most n/2

It is known that for triangle-free graphs, if they are $d$-regular, then $2d\leq n$, where $n$ is the number of vertices. In words, the degree is less than or equal to the half of the number of ...

### Graphs far from being a collection of bicliques

A biclique is a complete bipartite graph. A graph is a "biclique collection" if it can be decomposed into the disjoint union of bicliques. Denote the set of such graphs by $\mathcal{BCC}$.
Given a ...

### Online Library of Unlabeled Connected Graphs on n Vertices

Does anyone know of the link to an online library of of unlabeled, connected graphs on n vertices? I remember looking at such an archive a few years ago while at a Macaulay 2 workshop, but I've been ...

### Cliques of hyperedges

Suppose we have a graph, with multiple edges allowed. An edge-clique is a set $C$ of edges so that every two edges in $C$ share at least one endpoint. Note that any edge-clique falls into one of two ...

### Bounds on the independence number of a graph

If $G$ is a graph with $n$ vertices and $\frac{nk}{2}$ edges, $k\ge -1,$ then $a(G)\ge \frac{n}{k+1}$. Why?
(Here $a(G)$ is the independence number).

### Is the feedback vertex number bounded by the maximum number of leaves in a spanning tree?

I have a graph-theoretical conjecture which I think would have been studied before, but for which I cannot find anything in the literature.
Let G be a finite, simple, connected graph. Let the ...

### Suppose the independent number of a graph is bounded. How small the clique number can be?

Suppose the independent number of a graph is bounded. How small the clique number can be? linear?
It seems to be a natural problem to ask. but I could not find any reference.
Thanks.

### Minimal Non-planar Extensions of a Graph

Given a planar graph $G=(V,E)$ with vertices $V$ and edges $E$, call $\bar G = (V,\bar E)$ a non-planar extension of $G$ if $\bar G$ is non-planar and $E \subset \bar E$.
I'm interested in minimal ...

### Erdős–Stone theorem type edge density estimates for bipartite graphs?

The Erdős–Stone theorem theory says that the densest graph not containing a graph H (which has chromatic number r) has number of edges equal to $(r-2)/(r-1) {n \choose 2}$ asymptotically.
However, ...
