# Sharp transition of the invertibility of the adjacency matrices of sparse random graphs

@article{Basak2018SharpTO, title={Sharp transition of the invertibility of the adjacency matrices of sparse random graphs}, author={Anirban Basak and Mark Rudelson}, journal={arXiv: Probability}, year={2018} }

We consider three different models of sparse random graphs:~undirected and directed Erdős-Renyi graphs, and random bipartite graph with an equal number of left and right vertices. For such graphs we show that if the edge connectivity probability $p \in (0,1)$ satisfies $n p \ge \log n + k(n)$ with $k(n) \to \infty$ as $n \to \infty$, then the adjacency matrix is invertible with probability approaching one (here $n$ is the number of vertices in the two former cases and the number of left and…

It is shown that the preconditioned Lasso can solve a large class of sparse linear regression problems nearly optimally: it succeeds whenever the dependency structure of the covariates, in the sense of the Markov property, has low treewidth — even if Σ is highly ill-conditioned.
