On the chromatic number of random geometric graphs

  title={On the chromatic number of random geometric graphs},
  author={Colin McDiarmid and Tobias Mueller},
Given independent random points X1, . . . ,Xn ∈ R d, drawn according to some probability distribution ν on Rd, and a positive distance r > 0 we construct a random geometric graph Gn with vertex set {X1, . . . ,Xn} and an edge XiXj ∈ E(Gn) when ‖Xi −Xj‖ < r. Here ‖.‖ may be an arbitrary norm on R d and we allow any probability distribution ν with a bounded density function. We consider the chromatic number χ(Gn) of Gn and its relation to the clique number ω(Gn) as n grows. We extend results by… CONTINUE READING
