A hole in a graph is an induced subgraph which is a cycle of length at least four. A hole is called even if it has an even number of vertices. An even-hole-free graph is a graph with no even holes. A vertex of a graph is bisimplicial if the set of its neighbours is the union of two cliques. In this paper we prove that every even-hole-free graph has a… (More)

We consider the Erd˝ os–Rényi random graph G(n, p) inside the critical window, that is when p = 1/n + λn −4/3 , for some fixed λ ∈ R. We prove that the sequence of connected components of G(n, p), considered as metric spaces using the graph distance rescaled by n −1/3 , converges towards a sequence of continuous compact metric spaces. The result relies on a… (More)

Given a branching random walk, let Mn be the minimum position of any member of the nth generation. We calculate EMn to within O(1) and prove exponential tail bounds for P{|Mn − EMn| > x}, under quite general conditions on the branching random walk. In particular , together with work by Bramson [Z. Wahrsch. Verw. Gebiete 45 (1978) 89–108], our results fully… (More)

We prove an analogue of the classical ballot theorem that holds for any mean zero random walk with positive but finite variance. Our result is best possible: we exhibit examples demonstrating that if any of our hypotheses are removed, our conclusions may no longer hold.

We study a class of hypothesis testing problems in which, upon observing the realization of an n-dimensional Gaussian vector, one has to decide whether the vector was drawn from a standard normal distribution or, alternatively, whether there is a subset of the components belonging to a certain given class of sets whose elements have been " contaminated, "… (More)

We provide simplified proofs for the asymptotic distribution of the number of cuts required to cut down a Galton–Watson tree with critical, finite-variance offspring distribution, conditioned to have total progeny n. Our proof is based on a coupling which yields a precise, non-asymptotic distributional result for the case of uniformly random rooted labeled… (More)

We consider the minimum-weight path between any pair of nodes of the n-vertex complete graph in which the weights of the edges are i.i.d. exponentially distributed random variables. We show that the longest of these minimum-weight paths has about α log n edges where α ≈ 3.5911 is the unique solution of the equation α log α − α = 1. This answers a question… (More)

We consider a branching random walk for which the maximum position of a particle in the n'th generation, Rn, has zero speed on the linear scale: Rn/n → 0 as n → ∞. We further remove (" kill ") any particle whose displacement is negative, together with its entire descendence. The size Z of the set of un-killed particles is almost surely finite [26, 31]. In… (More)

In this paper, we present new structural results about the existence of a subgraph where the degrees of the vertices are pre-specified. Further, we use these results to prove a 16-edge-weighting version of a conjecture by Karo´nski, Luczak and Thoma-son, an asymptotic 2-edge-weighting version of the same conjecture, and a 7/8 version of Louigi's Conjecture.
