We consider general exponential random graph models (ERGMs) where the sufficient statistics are functions of homomorphism counts for a fixed collection of simple graphs Fk. Whereas previous work has shown a degeneracy phenomenon in dense ERGMs, we show thi ...

We develop a quantitative large deviations theory for random hypergraphs, which rests on tensor decomposition and counting lemmas under a novel family of cut-type norms. As our main application, we obtain sharp asymptotics for joint upper and lower tails o ...

We give a new proof of a recent resolution [18] by Michelen and Sahasrabudhe of a conjecture of Shepp and Vanderbei [19] that the moduli of roots of Gaussian Kac polynomials of degree $n$, centered at $1$ and rescaled by $n^2$, should form a Poisson point ...

For any fixed simple graph H=(V,E) and any fixed u>0, we establish the leading order of the exponential rate function for the probability that the number of copies of H in the Erdős–Rényi graph G(n,p) exceeds its expectation by a factor 1+u, assuming n−κ(H ...
