For a planar graph H , let N P ( n, H ) denote the maximum number of copies of H in an n -vertex planar graph. In this paper, we prove that N P ( n, P 7 ) ∼ 427 n 4 , N P ( n, C 6 ) ∼ ( n/ 3) 3 , N P ( n, C 8 ) ∼ ( n/ 4) 4 and N P ( n, K 4 { 1 } ) ∼ ( n/ 6) 6 , where K 4 { 1 } is the 1-subdivision of K 4 . In addition, we obtain signiﬁcantly improved upper bounds on N P ( n, P 2 m +1 ) and N P ( n, C 2 m ) for m ≥ 4. For a wide class of graphs H , the key technique developed in this paper…

For a fixed planar graph H , let NP(n,H) denote the maximum number of copies of H in an n-vertex planar graph. In the case when H is a cycle, the asymptotic value of NP(n,Cm) is currently known for m
Planar graphs with the maximum number of induced 6-cycles
For large n we determine the maximum number of induced 6-cycles which can be contained in a planar graph on n vertices, and we classify the graphs which achieve this maximum. In particular we show

Let H be a graph. The generalized outerplanar Turán number of H, denoted by fOP(n,H), is the maximum number of copies of H in an n-vertex outerplanar graph. Let Pk be the path on k vertices. In this

In a generalized Turán problem, we are given graphs \$H\$ and \$F\$ and seek to maximize the number of copies of \$H\$ in an \$n\$-vertex graph not containing \$F\$ as a subgraph. We consider generalized Turán

Finding the maximum number of induced cycles of length k in a graph on n vertices has been one of the most intriguing open problems of Extremal Graph Theory. Recently Balogh, Hu, Lidický and Pfender
Planar graphs with the maximum number of induced 4-cycles or 5-cycles
For large n we determine exactly the maximum numbers of induced C4 and C5 subgraphs that a planar graph on n vertices can contain. We show that K2,n−2 uniquely achieves this maximum in the C4 case,
