The extremal number $\mathrm{ex}(n,F)$ of a graph $F$ is the maximum number of edges in an $n$-vertex graph not containing $F$ as a subgraph. A real number $r \in [1,2]$ is realisable if there exists a graph $F$ with $\mathrm{ex}(n , F) = \Theta(n^r)$. Several decades ago, Erd\H{o}s and Simonovits conjectured that every rational number in $[1,2]$ is realisable. Despite decades of effort, the only known realisable numbers are $0,1, \frac{7}{5}, 2$, and the numbers of the form $1+\frac{1}{m}$, $2…

Many Turan exponents via subdivisions
Given a graph $H$ and a positive integer $n$, the {\it Turan number} $\ex(n,H)$ is the maximum number of edges in an $n$-vertex graph that does not contain $H$ as a subgraph. A real number
Turán number of bipartite graphs with no 𝐾_{𝑡,𝑡}
The extremal number of a graph $H$, denoted by $\mbox{ex}(n,H)$, is the maximum number of edges in a graph on $n$ vertices that does not contain $H$. The celebrated Kővari-Sos-Turan theorem says that
Turán Numbers of Bipartite Subdivisions
The main results yield infinitely many new so-called Turan exponents: rationals $r\in (1,2)$ for which there exists a bipartite graph $H$ with $ex(n, H)=\Theta(n^r)$, adding to the lists recently obtained by Jiang, Ma, Yepremyan, by Kang, Kim, Liu, and by Conlon, Janzer, Lee.
Negligible obstructions and Tur\'an exponents
We show that for every rational number $r \in (1,2)$ of the form $2 - a/b$, where $a, b \in \mathbb{N}^+$ satisfy $\lfloor a/b \rfloor^3 \le a \le b / (\lfloor b/a \rfloor +1) + 1$, there exists a
More on the Extremal Number of Subdivisions
Given a graph H, the extremal number ex(n,H) is the largest number of edges in an H-free graph on n vertices. We make progress on a number of conjectures about the extremal number of bipartite
The Extremal Number of the Subdivisions of the Complete Bipartite Graph
It is proved that for a graph F, the k-subdivision of F is the graph obtained by replacing the edges of F with internally vertex-disjoint paths of length k.
Some remarks on the Zarankiewicz problem
The Zarankiewicz problem asks for an estimate on z(m,n;s,t), the largest number of 1's in an m×n matrix with all entries 0 or 1 containing no s×t submatrix consisting entirely of 1's. We show that a


Rational exponents in extremal graph theory
Given a family of graphs $\mathcal{H}$, the extremal number $\textrm{ex}(n, \mathcal{H})$ is the largest $m$ for which there exists a graph with $n$ vertices and $m$ edges containing no graph from
Rational exponents for hypergraph Turan problems
Given a family of $k$-hypergraphs $\mathcal{F}$, $ex(n,\mathcal{F})$ is the maximum number of edges a $k$-hypergraph can have, knowing that said hypergraph has $n$ vertices but contains no copy of
On the Extremal Number of Subdivisions
One of the cornerstones of extremal graph theory is a result of Füredi, later reproved and given due prominence by Alon, Krivelevich, and Sudakov, saying that if $H$ is a bipartite graph with
Tur\'an number of theta graphs
The theta graph $\Theta_{\ell,t}$ consists of two vertices joined by $t$ vertex-disjoint paths of length $\ell$ each. For fixed odd $\ell$ and large $t$, we show that the largest graph not containing
Improved Bounds for the Extremal Number of Subdivisions
This paper proves that there exists a constant $C'$ such that $\text{ex}(n,H_t)\leq C'n^{3/2-\frac{1}{4t-6}}$.
On a class of degenerate extremal graph problems
This paper generalizes and investigates the case when C2k, a cycle of 2k vertices, is forbidden and the maximum number of edges a graphGn of ordern can have without containing subgraphs from ℒ.
Some extremal problems in graph theory
We consider only graphs without loops and multiple edges . Gn denotes a graph of n vertices, v(G) , e(G) and X(G) denote the number of vertices, edges, and the chromatic number of the graph G
Norm-Graphs: Variations and Applications
It is proved that for every fixed t, there is a family of subsets of an n element set whose so-called dual shatter function is O(mt) and whose discrepancy is ?(n1/2? 1/2tlogn). This settles a problem of Matou?ek.
Norm-graphs and bipartite turán numbers
This paper establishes the exact order of magnitude of the Turán numbers ex (n, Kt,s) for any fixedt and alls≥t!+1, improving over the previous probabilistic lower bounds for such pairs (t, s).
