Local Convergence of Random Graph Colorings

Abstract

Let G=G(n,m) be a random graph whose average degree d=2m/n is below the k-colorability threshold. If we sample a k-coloring Sigma of G uniformly at random, what can we say about the correlations between the colors assigned to vertices that are far apart? According to a prediction from statistical physics, for average degrees below the so-called condensation threshold d_c, the colors assigned to far away vertices are asymptotically independent [Krzakala et al: PNAS 2007]. We prove this conjecture for k exceeding a certain constant k_0. More generally, we determine the joint distribution of the k-colorings that Sigma induces locally on the bounded-depth neighborhoods of a fixed number of vertices.
