Publications of (and about) Paul Erdös

Zbl.No:  820.05054
Autor:  Erdös, Paul; Suen, Stephen; Winkler, Peter
Title:  On the size of a random maximal graph. (In English)
Source:  Random Struct. Algorithms 6, No.2-3, 309-318 (1995).
Review:  The authors study a class of restricted random graph processes with main focus on the triangle avoidance process, improving by the factor of 3 a lower bound on the Ramsey number R(3,k). Recently, using similar ideas, J.H.Kim settled the value of R(3,k) asymptotically [Random Struct. Algorithms 7, No.3, 173-207 (1995; Zbl 832.05084)].
