Brightwell, Graham, Panagiotou, Konstantinos and Steger, Angelika (2007) On extremal subgraphs of random graphs. In: 18th ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms, 7 - 9 January, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Let K-l denote the complete graph on vertices. We prove that there is a constant c = c(l) > 0, such that whenever p >= n(-c), with probability tending to 1 when n goes to infinity, every maximum K-l-free subgraph of the binomial random graph G(n,p) is (l-1)-partite. This answers a question of Babai, Simonovits and Spencer . The proof is based on a tool of independent interest: we show, for instance, that the maximum cut of almost all graphs with M edges, where M >> n, is nearly unique. More precisely, given a maximum cut C of G(n,m), we can obtain all maximum cuts by moving at most O (root n(3/)M) vertices between the parts of C.
