Abstract
Let H be a graph on h vertices, and let G be a graph on n vertices. An H-factor of
G is a spanning subgraph of G consisting of n/h vertex disjoint copies of H. The fractional
arboricity of H is a(H) = max{ |E |
|V |-1 }, where the maximum is taken over all subgraphs (V , E )
of H with |V | > 1. Let (H) denote the minimum degree of a vertex of H. It is shown
that if (H) < a(H) then n-1/a(H)
is a sharp threshold function for the property that the
random graph G(n, p) contains an H-factor. I.e., there are two positive constants c and C so
that for p(n) = cn-1/a(H)
