Review:  The probability space consisting of all graphs on a set of n vertices where each edge occurs with probability p, independently of all other edges, is denoted by G(n,p). Theorem: For each \epsilon > 0 almost every graph G in G(n,p) is such if (1+\epsilon) log n/ log d < r < (2- \epsilon) log n/ log d where d = 1/(1-p), then G contains a maximal induced tree of order d. Problem: Let p be a function of n, find such a value of p for which a graph G in G(n,p) has the greatest induced tree.
