# Large Monochromatic Triple Stars in Edge Colourings

@article{Letzter2015LargeMT, title={Large Monochromatic Triple Stars in Edge Colourings}, author={Shoham Letzter}, journal={Journal of Graph Theory}, year={2015}, volume={80} }

Following problems posed by Gyárfás 2011, we show that for every r‐edge‐colouring of Kn there is a monochromatic triple star of order at least n/(r−1) , improving Ruszinkó's result 2012. An edge colouring of a graph is called a local r‐colouring if every vertex spans edges of at most r distinct colours. We prove the existence of a monochromatic triple star with at least rn/(r2−r+1) vertices in every local r‐colouring of Kn .

The results include determining $f_1^k(K_n)$, which is equivalent to determining classical Ramsey numbers for multicolorings, and a construction due to Calkin implies that $f-3^k (K-n) \le {{n}\over {k-1}} + k-1$ when $k- 1$ is a prime power.
