### Is every knot unavoidable in the embeddings of some graph?

Is it the case that, for any given knot $K$, there exists some graph $G$ whose every embedding into $\mathbb{R}^3$ (or into $\mathbb{S}^3$) contains a cycle that realizes $K$? I know the ...

### Big binary tree as an induced subgraph

I believe this is true: Suppose $G$ is a graph. If $G$ has a subdivision of a large binary tree, prove that $G$ has an induced subgraph which is a subdivision of a large binary tree or the line ...

### Slightly improving bounds on two-color Ramsey numbers by globally pruning edges and counting connected vertices in instances of two-colored complete graphs

The two-color Ramsey number, $R(m, n)$, is the minimum number of vertices, $||V||$, in a complete graph necessary for there to exist a clique of order $m$ or an independent set of order $n$. In terms ...

### Quasi-Ramsey Graphs

A graph with number of vertices less than R(n,n)-1, is called quasi-Ramsey of case n, if it has no complete graph Kn in itself or its complementary graph, and if added another vertex, no matter how it ...

### Differences of near diagonal Ramsey numbers.

I am a graduate student trying to get involved in Ramsey theory. My question comes from: Erdős on graphs: his legacy of unsolved problems By Fan R. K. Chung, Paul Erdős, Ronald L. Graham p.14 of ...

### Monochromatic triangles in every two-coloring of the plane?

An old problem (possibly due to Erdős and Graham?): given a triangle $T$ and a two-coloring of the plane, does there necessary exist a monochromatic congruent copy of $T$? Here "monochromatic" means ...

### Ramsey pairs of classes graphs

Motivation Call a set $H$ of vertices of a graph $G$ homogeneous if it is either independent or complete. Every perfect graph of size $n$ has a homogeneous subset of size $\sqrt n$. Noga Alon has ...

### 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.

### Where can I find a catalog of known Ramsey numbers?

Is there an online catalog available of Ramsey numbers, preferably one that for unknown values documents the known upper/lower bounds?

### Ramsey Theory, monochromatic subgraphs

If we have the complete countably infinite bipartite graph $K_{\omega,\omega}$ and we colour the edges with just two colours. Should we expect to get a monochromatic copy of $K_{\omega,\omega}$. ...

### Non trivial colouring of the edges of an infinite complete graph

Can you build a probabilistic scheme for colouring each edge (independently of all other edges) of the complete graph G on the positive integers such that the probability that G contains an infinite ...

### Infinite Ramsey theorem with infinitely many colours

Clearly, it is possible to colour the edges of an infinite complete graph so that it does not contain any infinite monochromatic complete subgraph. Now what about the following? Let $G$ be the ...

### Can one make Erdős's Ramsey lower bound explicit?

Erdős's 1947 probabilistic trick provided a lower exponential bound for the Ramsey number R(k). Is it possible to explicitly construct 2-colourings on exponentially sized graphs without large ...
