    • Acyclic edge colourings of graphs with large girth 

      Cai, Xing Shi; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem; Reed, Bruce; Watts, Adam Bene (2016-11-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      An edge colouring of a graph G is called acyclic if it is proper and every cycle contains at least three colours. We show that for every e > 0, there exists a g = g(e) such that if G has maximum degree ¿ and girth at least ...

    • An interlacing approach for bounding the sum of Laplacian eigenvalues of graphs 

      Abiad, Aida; Fiol Mora, Miquel Àngel; Haemers, Willem H.; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem (2014)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We apply eigenvalue interlacing techniques for obtaining lower and upper bounds for the sums of Laplacian eigenvalues of graphs, and characterize equality. This leads to generalizations of, and variations on theorems by ...
    • Búsqueda de comunidades en grafos grandes mediante configuraciones implícitas de vectores 

      Muntés Mulero, Víctor; Padrol Sureda, Arnau; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem; Pfeifle, Julián (PUBL. UNIVERSIDAD DE ZARAGOZA, 2009)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Presentamos el algoritmo OCA para buscar comunidades solapadas en grafos grandes, como por ejemplo la Wikipedia con 1,6×107 nodos y 1,8×108 aristas. OCA se basa en la búsqueda iterativa de subconjuntos localmente óptimos ...
    • Connectivity in bridge-addable graph classes: the McDiarmid-Steger-Welsh conjecture 

      Chapuy, G.; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem (2018-09-17)
      Article
      Open Access
      A class of graphs is bridge-addable if given a graph G in the class, any graph obtained by adding an edge between two connected components of G is also in the class. We prove a conjecture of McDiarmid, Steger, and Welsh, ...

    • Counting independent sets in cubic graphs of given girth 

      Perarnau Llobet, Guillem; Perkins, Will (2018-09-26)
      Article
      Open Access
      We prove a tight upper bound on the independence polynomial (and total number of independent sets) of cubic graphs of girth at least 5. The bound is achieved by unions of the Heawood graph, the point/line incidence graph ...
    • Critical percolation on random regular graphs 

      Joos, Felix; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem (2018-03-20)
      Article
      Open Access
      We show that for all $ d\in \{3,\ldots ,n-1\}$ the size of the largest component of a random $ d$-regular graph on $ n$ vertices around the percolation threshold $ p=1/(d-1)$ is $ \Theta (n^{2/3})$, with high probability. ...
    • Decomposition of bounded degree graphs into C4-free subgraphs 

      Kang, Ross; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem (2014-10-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      We prove that every graph with maximum degree ∆ admits a partition of its edges into O(√∆) parts (as ∆→∞) none of which contains C4 as a subgraph. This bound is sharp up to a constantfactor. Our proof uses an iterated ...

    • Existence of spanning F-free subgraphs with large minimum degree 

      Perarnau Llobet, Guillem; Reed, Bruce (2016-12-07)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Let F be a family of graphs and let d be large enough. For every d-regular graph G, we study the existence of a spanning F-free subgraph of G with large minimum degree. This problem is well understood if F does not contain ...
    • Fast recoloring of sparse graphs 

      Bousquet, Nicolas; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem (2015-09-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      In this paper, we show that for every graph of maximum average degree bounded away from d and any two (d + 1)-colorings of it, one can transform one coloring into the other one within a polynomial number of vertex recolorings ...
    • How to determine if a random graph with a fixed degree sequence has a giant component 

      Joos, Felix; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem; Rautenbach, Dieter; Reed, Bruce (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The traditional Erdos-Renyi model of a random network is of little use in modelling the type of complex networks which modern researchers study. In this graph, every pair of vertices is equally likely to be connected by ...
    • How to determine if a random graph with a fixed degree sequence has a giant component 

      Joos, Felix; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem; Rautenbach, Dieter; Reed, Bruce (2017-01-26)
      Article
      Open Access
      For a fixed degree sequence D=(d1,…,dn) , let G(D) be a uniformly chosen (simple) graph on {1,…,n} where the vertex i has degree di . In this paper we determine whether G(D) has a giant component with high probability, ...

      A well-known conjecture in computer science and statistical physics is that Glauber dynamics on the set of k-colorings of a graph G on n vertices with maximum degree ¿ is rapidly mixing for k = ¿ + 2. In FOCS 1999, Vigoda ...
    • Large subgraphs without short cycles 

      Foucaud, Florent; Krivelevich, Michael; Perarnau Llobet, Guillem (2015-01-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      We study two extremal problems about subgraphs excluding a family F of graphs. i) Among all graphs with m edges, what is the smallest size f(m, F) of a largest F–free subgraph? ii) Among all graphs with minimum degree d ...
    • Matchings in random biregular bipartite graphs 

      Perarnau Llobet, Guillem; Petridis, Georgios (2013-03-24)
      Article
      Open Access
      We study the existence of perfect matchings in suitably chosen induced subgraphs of random biregular bipartite graphs. We prove a result similar to a classical theorem of Erdös and Rényi about perfect matchings in random ...

      Article
      Open Access
      Given any two vertices u, v of a random geometric graph G(n, r), denote by dE(u, v) their Euclidean distance and by dE(u, v) their graph distance. The problem of finding upper bounds on dG(u, v) conditional on dE(u, v) ...

      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The tree-depth of a graph G is a parameter that plays a crucial role in the theory of bounded expansion classes and has been introduced under numerous names. We describe the asymptotic behaviour of this parameter in the ...

      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      We give asymptotically exact values for the treewidth tw(G) of a random geometric graph G ¿ G(n, r) in [0, v n] 2 . More precisely, let rc denote the threshold radius for the appearance of the giant component in G(n, r). ...
