3-path in graphs with bounded average degree


In this paper we study the existence of unavoidable paths on three vertices in sparse graphs. A path uvw on three vertices u, v, and w is of type (i,j, k) if the degree of u (respectively v, w) is at most i (respectively j, k). We prove that every graph with minimum degree at least 2 and average degree strictly less than to contains a path of one of the types (Equation presented) Moreover, no parameter of this description can be improved.
