Asymptotic Improvements to the Lower Bound of Certain Bipartite Turán Numbers


We show that there are graphs with n vertices containing no K5,5 which have about n7/4 edges, thus proving that ex(n, K5,5) ≥ (1 + o(1))n7/4. This bound gives an asymptotic improvement to the known lower bounds on ex(n, Kt, s) for t = 5 when 5 ≤ s ≤ 12, and t = 6 when 6 ≤ s ≤ 8.
