The main topic of this project are phase transition phenomena in random combinatorial structures. In a phase transition, a growing random structure undergoes drastic structural changes in a short time span. Such phenomena have been vigorously studied in many contexts by researchers from various areas.In this project, we treat phase transition in the rigorous context of random graphs, a research area initiated by ErdQs and Rényi. We shall focus on classic random graph models, random graphs with constraints on their minimum degree, random geometric graphs, and random digraphs.
