### How to find or constrain “particularly good” (two-sided) spectral expanders?

I'm new to graph theory, but a response to a question I asked a while ago introduced me to the concept of expander graphs.
A k-regular graph (henceforth "graph") on n nodes has eigenvalues k = λ1 ≥ ...

### How many n/2-cycles can a cubic graph have

Given a simple cubic graph with $n$ vertices (which implies that $n$ is even), what is a good upper bound on the number of cycles of length $n/2$ it can have?
A random cubic graph has ...

### Algorithms for computing the Resilience of Graphs

The definition of resilience with a graph $G$ w.r.t to a monotone property $\mathcal{P}$ is well known.
(Global resilience) Let $\mathcal{P}$ be an increasing monotone property. The global ...

### 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 ...

### Smallest matrix covered by many random n by n matrices

We say that a matrix $M$ can be covered by a (smaller) matrix $N$ if every entry in $M$ is contained in some submatrix of $M$ that exactly equals to $N$, up to reordering the rows and columns of $N$. ...

### 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 ...

### The Turán problem for graphs with given chromatic number

The ordinary Turán problem for graphs asks, "Given a graph $H$, if $G$ is an $H$-free graph on $n$ vertices, what is the largest number of edges that $G$ can have?" As is well known, if $\chi(H) = r ...

### Bipartite independence number

Consider a balanced bipartite graph $G=(U,V,E)$, i.e., a bipartite graph with $|U|=|V|$. An independent set $I$ of $G$ is balanced if $|I \cap U| = |I \cap V|$.
The bipartite independence number of ...

### Smallest size for an incomplete tournament with property $S_k$

By a well-known probabilistic argument due to Erdos, if $k>1$ is an integer then for all large enough $n$, there an asymmetric relation $R$ on $X=\lbrace 1,2, \ldots ,n \rbrace$ (i.e. $R \subseteq ...

### What are constructions for induced $C_5$-free graphs?

During a recent workshop, the question came up whether there are some constructions for graphs that are induced $C_5$-free, but they contain "everything else," so we don't want to forbid $C_5$'s, ...

### graphs with maximal number of paths of given length

Hi,
For a given number of edges, the non directed graph which maximises the number of paths of length 2 is the quasi-star or the quasi-complete graph.
Does anyone know :
1- what is the non directed ...
