## Abstract

We study the appearance of powers of Hamilton cycles in pseudorandom graphs, using the following comparatively weak pseudorandomness notion. A graph G is (ε, p, k, ℓ)-pseudorandom if for all disjoint X, Y ⊆ V (G) with /X/ ≥ εpkn and |Y| ≥ εpℓn we have e(X, Y ) = (1 ± ε)p/X//Y/. We prove that for all β > 0 there is an ε > 0 such that an (ε, p, 1, 2)-pseudorandom graph on n vertices with minimum degree at least βpn contains the square of a Hamilton cycle. In particular, this implies that (n, d, λ)-graphs with λ ≫ d5/2n?3/2 contain the square of a Hamilton cycle, and thus a triangle factor if n is a multiple of 3. This improves on a result of Krivelevich, Sudakov and Szabó [Triangle factors in sparse pseudo-random graphs, Combinatorica 24 (2004), no. 3, 403- 426]. We also obtain results for higher powers of Hamilton cycles and establish corresponding counting versions. Our proofs are constructive, and yield deterministic polynomial time algorithms.
