counting k-cliques not also (k+1) on random graphs
Parallel to Brendan's comment, if $k$ is larger than order $\log(n)$, the probability of $\omega(G)$ being $k+1$ is vanishingly small compared to the probability of $\omega(G)$ being $k$. I recommend looking at Chapter 7 of Random Graphs by Janson, Luczak and Rucinski. Note that since you have half the edges, looking at the size of a maximum stable set is equivalent to looking at the size of a maximum clique. You should also look at Section 1.4 if you are unfamiliar with the asymptotic equivalence of $G(n,p)$ and $G(n,m)$. |

If a graph embeds in the projective plane or the torus is there a bound on the number of edge crossings it has in the plane?
There is another way to read it: What is the smallest function $f$ of $n$ such that any toroidal graph on $n$ vertices can be drawn in the plane with at most $f(n)$ crossings? |

Disjoint Maximum Independent Sets in $alpha$-critical graphs
I'm pretty sure (*) fails emphatically. As evidence, consider the case in which the edges form a perfect matching. Here $n$ is the maximum stable set still, but since $n>m$ the graph is disconnected. Moreover it fails for $(m,n)=(1,2)$, and I think you should be able to prove that it fails in general using strong induction and observing the new maximum stable set when you remove an edge. |

Partitioning the vertex set of a graph with a large independent set
In that case, doesn't Colin provide a valid counterexample? |

regular hyper graph construction
Generating them how? Steiner triple systems are 3-uniform and regular, for an example. |

Partitioning the vertex set of a graph with a large independent set
(I am assuming TOM means $v_1,\ldots, v_m$ are a stable set and $v_{m+1},\ldots,v_{2m}$ are a clique. Is that the case?) |

Partitioning the vertex set of a graph with a large independent set
Colin, then take $m=1$ and remove two vertices, one of which is the isolated vertex. |

Distribution of distances in permutations
Take real numbers $r(1)\ldots r(n)$ chosen uniformly from $[0,1]$. Then construct a permutation $\pi$ with the property that for all $i$, $\pi(i) < \pi(j)$ if and only if $r(i)<r(j)$. Since the random reals are independently identically distributed and all distinct with probability 1, $\pi$ is a uniformly random permutation. In fact, we do not need to choose uniformly from $[0,1]$ -- we only need i.i.d. and distinct with probability 1. But for the purposes of the proof, the uniform distribution is appropriate. |

Vector chromatic number and Lovasz theta
I don't have an answer, but such a graph would definitely be imperfect and I would be extremely surprised if it were vertex-transitive. |

Distribution of distances in permutations
Yes, the permutations were generated randomly. The histogram represents 1,000,000 trials. |
