Abstract:

Let d > d_0 be a sufficiently large constant. A (n,d,c \sqrt{d}) graph G is a d-regular graph
over n vertices whose second largest (in absolute value) eigenvalue is at most c \sqrt{d}. For any 0 < p < 1,
G_p is the graph induced by retaining each edge of G with probability p. It is known that for p > \frac{1}{d} the
graph G_p almost surely contains a unique giant component (a connected component with linear number vertices).
We show that for p \geq \frac{5c}{\sqrt{d}} the giant component of G_p almost surely has an edge expansion of
at least \frac{1}{\log_2 n}.

Abstract:

Let $d \geq d_0$ be a sufficiently large constant. A $(n,d,c \sqrt{d})$ graph $G$ is a $d$ regular graph over $n$ vertices whose
second largest eigenvalue (in absolute value) is at most $c \sqrt{d}$. For any $0 < p < 1, ~G_p$ is the graph induced by
retaining each edge of $G$ with probability $p$. We show that for
any $p > \frac{5c}{\sqrt{d}}$ the graph $G_p$ almost surely contains
a unique giant component (a connected component with linear number
vertices). We further show that the giant component of $G_p$ almost
surely has an edge expansion of at least $\frac{1}{\log_2 n}$.
