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 and Y ⊆ V (G) with X ≥ εpkn and Y  ≥ εpℓn we have e(X, Y ) = (1 ± ε)pXY . 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 Szab´o [Triangle factors in sparse pseudorandom graphs, Combinatorica 24 (2004), no. 3, 403–426]. We also extend our result to higher powers of Hamilton cycles and establish corresponding counting versions.
