Szemeredi's Regularity Lemma
and its applications in graph theory
Authors: Janos Komlos Miklos Simonovits
Szemer\'edi's Regularity Lemma is an important tool
in discrete mathematics. It says that, in some sense,
all graphs can be approximated by random-looking graphs.
Therefore the lemma helps in proving theorems
for arbitrary graphs whenever
the corresponding result is easy for random graphs.
Recently quite a few new results were obtained
by using the Regularity Lemma, and also
some new variants and generalizations appeared.
In this survey we describe some typical applications
and some generalizations.
