The Ramsey number for hypergraph cycles II

By Penny Haxell, Tomasz Luczak, Yuejian Peng, V Rodl, Andrzej Rucinski and Jozef Skokan


Let C(3)n denote the 3-uniform tight cycle, that is the hypergraph with vertices v1, . . . , vn and edges v1v2v3, v2v3v4, . . . , vn-1vnv1, vnv1v2. We prove that the smallest integer N = N(n) for which every red-blue coloring of the edges of the complete 3-uniform hypergraph with N vertices contains a monochromatic copy of C(3)n is asymptotically equal to 4n/3 if n is divisible by 3, and 2n otherwise. The proof uses the regularity lemma for hypergraphs of Frankl and Rödl
