An Approximate Version of the Tree Packing Conjecture via Random Embeddings

Abstract

We prove that for any pair of constants a>0 and D and for n sufficiently large, every family of trees of orders at most n, maximum degrees at most D, and with at most n(n-1)/2 edges in total packs into the complete graph of order (1+a)n. This implies asymptotic versions of the Tree Packing Conjecture of Gyarfas from 1976 and a tree packing conjecture of Ringel from 1963 for trees with bounded maximum degree. A novel random tree embedding process combined with the nibble method forms the core of the proof.
