Abstract

top
The weight of an edge xy of a graph is defined to be the sum of degrees of the vertices x and y. The weight of a graph G is the minimum of weights of edges of G. More than twenty years ago Erd˝os was interested in finding the maximum weight of a graph with n vertices and m edges. This paper presents a complete solution of a modification of the above problem in which a graph is required to be bipartite. It is shown that there is a function w*(n,m) such that the optimum weight is either w*(n,m) or w*(n,m) + 1.
