Abstract

We prove that, for any $t \ge 3$, there exists a constant c = c(t) > 0 such that any d-regular n-vertex graph with the second largest eigenvalue in absolute value λ satisfying $\lambda \le c{d^{t - 1}}/{n^{t - 2}}$ contains vertex-disjoint copies of kt covering all but at most ${n^{1 - 1/(8{t^4})}}$ vertices. This provides further support for the conjecture of Krivelevich, Sudakov and Szábo (Combinatorica 24 (2004), pp. 403–426) that (n, d, λ)-graphs with n ∈ 3ℕ and $\lambda \le c{d^2}/n$ for a suitably small absolute constant c > 0 contain triangle-factors. Our arguments combine tools from linear programming with probabilistic techniques, and apply them in a certain weighted setting. We expect this method will be applicable to other problems in the field.
