We study the k-wise independent relaxation of the usual
model G(N, p) of random graphs where, as in this model, N
labeled vertices are fixed and each edge is drawn with prob-
ability p, however, it is only required that the distribution of
any subset of k edges is independent. This relaxation can
be relevant in modeling phenomena where only k-wise in-
dependence is assumed to hold, and is also useful when the
relevant graphs are so huge that handling G(N, p) graphs
