Dense graphs: basic facts

For every convergent graph sequence(Gn)

there is a WW0 such thatGnW.

Is thistheonlyuseful

notion of convergence

of densegraphs?

Conversely, W(Gn) such thatGnW.

W is essentially unique

(up to measure-preserving transformation).

E(G) is a Borel set in [0,1]2

Graphings and involution-invariant distributions

x: random point of [0,1]

Gx: connected component of G containing x

Gx is a random connected graph with bounded degree

This distribution is "invariant" under shifting the root.

Everyinvolution-invariantdistributioncan be representedby a graphing.

Regularity lemma

Given an arbitrarily large graph G and an >0,

decompose G into f() "homogeneous" parts.

(,)-homogeneous graph: SE(G), |S|<|V(G)|, all

connected components of G-S with > |V(G)| nodes

have the same neighborhood distribution (up to ).

Regularity lemma

nxn grid is

(, 2/18)-homogeneous.

>0 >0 bounded-degGS E(G), |S|<|V(G)|,

st. allcomponents of G-S are (,)-homogeneous.

Angel-Szegedy, Elek-Lippner

Regularity lemma

Given an arbitrarily large graph G and an >0,

find a graph H of size at most f() such that

G and H are -close in sampling distance.

Frieze-Kannan "Weak" Regularity Lemma

suffices in the dense case.

f() exists in the bounded degree case.
