Title:  Some new applications of probability methods to combinatorial analysis and graph theory. (In English)
Source:  Proc. 5th southeast. Conf. Comb., Graph Theor., Comput.; Boca Raton 1974, 39-51 (1974).
Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 298.00008.]
From the author's introductory paragraphs: ``Probability methods have often been applied successfully to solve various combinatorial problems which in some cases have been (and still are) unassailable by other methods. A systematic discussion of this method can be found in my recent book with J. Spencer [P. Erdös and J. Spencer, Probabilistic methods in combinatorics (1974; Zbl 308.05001)]. In the present paper I give some new results obtained by this method. I do not give detailed proofs, but by following the very sketchy outlined instructions, they can easily be supplied by the interested reader who is familiar with the method.''
