Abstract
We study the kwise 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 kwise in
dependence is assumed to hold, and is also useful when the
relevant graphs are so huge that handling G(N, p) graphs
