Constructions of Non-Principal Families in Extremal Hypergraph Theory

The main motivation is to study the qualitative difference between the cases k = 2, and k> = 3, and our results for the Tur'an problem exhibit this difference. We also study this question in the context of Ramsey-Tur'an theory, introduced by Erd""os and S'os. Although we prove the non-principality phenomenon for Ramsey-Tur'an problems when k> = 3, the behavior for k = 2 remains open. This is one of the few cases where an extremal problem for hypergraphs can be solved but not for graphs. Given a family F of k-uniform hypergraphs (k-graphs for short), le
