Abstract An equitable colouring of a graph G is a vertex colouring where no two adjacent vertices are coloured the same and, additionally, the colour class sizes differ by at most 1. The equitable chromatic number χ=(G) is the minimum number of colours required for this. We study the equitable chromatic number of the dense random graph ${\mathcal{G}(n,m)}$ where $m = \left\lfloor {p\left( \matrix{
n \cr
2 \cr} \right)} \right\rfloor $ and 0 < p < 0.86 is constant. It is a well-known question…

The $\chi$-stability index ${\rm es}_{\chi}(G)$ of a graph $G$ is the minimum number of its edges whose removal results in a graph with the chromatic number smaller than that of $G$. In this paper…

New upper and lower bounds for $\chi(G)$ are established, which narrow down the colouring rate $n/\chi( G)$ of $G \sim G(n,p)$ to an explicit interval of length $o(1)$ answering a question of Kang and McDiarmid.

The chromatic number of a random graph G_{n,m} is determined for the case $m=O(n)$, but when in the 1970s Erdős popularized the problem, he was asking for good estimates on the chromaticNumber of G_{{n,1/2}$ for $m \sim n^2/4$ (equivalently, the chromatics number of $G_{ {n, 1/2}}$.
