Localization in Random Geometric Graphs with Too Many Edges

Consider a random geometric graph G(n, r(n)), given by a connecting two vertices of a Poisson Point Process of intensity n on the unit torus whenever their distance is smaller than the parameter r(n). This model is conditioned on the rare event that the number of edges observed, |E|, is greater than [1 + delta (n)] times its expectation, producing a three parameter model. We show that, for delta constant or vanishing sufficiently slowly in n, with high probability, there exists a "giant clique" with almost all of the excess edges. Furthermore, if delta vanishes sufficiently quickly, the largest clique will be, at most, a constant multiple of the usual clique number of the unconditioned random geometric graph; roughly, all excess edges will result from the "standard" entropy-like effects of a vanishing Radon-Nykodyn derivative. Finally, we discuss progress in finding a phase transition function delta0(n), so that when delta is much bigger than delta0, the giant clique scenario holds, while delta much smaller than delta0 implies the entropy scenario.
